Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx --- August 10

Dear Lord, why do bad things happen to good people? ... Help us to realize that nothing happens to us that You do not know about, and allow. ... You may let us make mistakes, and You may let Satan attack us to teach us that we need Your strength and protection. Whatever the source of our problems, You can turn the outcome to good!* ... Oh Lord, forgive us for getting so caught up in trying to run our own lives that we fail to seek Your will; forgive us for often turning to You only in times of crisis; forgive us for being "slow learners;" and forgive us for letting our pride separate us from You. ... Teach us, Lord, that You are indeed faithful and trustworthy, just as You want us to be. Give us faith to see that Your grace is indeed sufficient to sustain us in all situations.

In Jesus' name we pray.


     * (See Genesis 50:20)
