“Don’t pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it.” ~ Corrie Ten Boom


Look on my affliction and deliver me,

God, I know you see her. Today, would you remind her that you’ve not forgotten her? Your Word says that you are near to the brokenhearted, and that you will never leave her or forsake her. Father, help her to have confidence in your deliverance even when it seems so very far away or looks different than what she had in mind…

for I do not forget your law.

Lord, help her to cling to your Word even when she doesn’t understand. Bring your promises to her mind and replace any destructive thoughts with your truth. Turn her eyes to your statutes and remind her that your ways are good, even if her emotions or circumstances try to convince her otherwise. Especially on days when trials cloud her thinking, help her to not forget your law…

Plead my cause and redeem me;

Who better to plead her cause than you, Lord? I praise you that you are Redeemer and Savior; that nothing is too hard for you or beyond your grasp. Jesus, thank you for interceding on her behalf and for providing a way out. You are the only way. Jesus, please make a way for my friend…

give me life according to your promise!

Quicken her in her spirit, Father. Fill her deepest longings until she overflows with a joy that can only be found in you. Awaken what is dead in her, heal what is broken in her, and bring new life to her situation. Jesus, thank you that your promises have stood the test of time, and that your faithfulness endures to all generations…

Salvation is far from the wicked,

God, there is no salvation apart from you. I plead for you to make yourself known to those who are living in darkness. Help them to see their need for a Savior and to turn from their wicked ways. Father, shine your light and send your Spirit to convict hearts and bring repentance. Thank you that you are a God who restores and offers new beginnings by your grace. Thank you for pursuing the lost long after we have given up hope…

for they do not seek your statutes.

Lord, when others turn their backs on you, help my friend to stand strong in her commitment to you. When her enemies seek personal gain at her expense, help her to find her worth and security in you. When jealousy overcomes them and when idols consume them, God help her to follow hard after you – for in you alone is lasting peace and freedom found.

Great is your mercy, O Lord;

Father God, thank you that even in the struggle your mercy reigns. Remind my friend that even the darkness is not dark to you, that you are gracious and good, and that no detail escapes your control. Give her strength to utter words of praise even in the waiting. Act on her behalf for her good and your glory, because that’s what your mercy does best…

give me life according to your rules.

Jesus, breathe life into her dry bones. Breathe life so that she can make a fresh start in your redeeming love. Breathe life to sustain her when her world crumbles all around her. Breathe life, bringing constant reminders of the greatness of who you are. Make your Word come alive once more so that she runs to your promises with hope in the midst of her suffering.

{A prayer prompted by Psalm 119:153-156}
