“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.” Romans 8: 26-27 NIV
Father, your daughter needs you. She has taken on the burden of worry, a burden which she was never meant to carry. She has become weak and confused. This burden has left her vulnerable to believe the lies of the enemy. Lord, she needs your help to remember who she is in your Son, Jesus Christ.
Lord, help her to remember that she is your daughter, precious and beautiful in your sight. You always hear her when she cries out. You have never left her side. Not one of her tears has gone unnoticed. Help her to remember that nothing is impossible for you. Help her to remember that in her weakness you are made perfect.
Don’t let her forget that you are faithful. Help her to remember that she walks by faith and not by sight. Although, she sees the evil of this world, she is not to be moved by it. She is only to be moved by your Word. You did not give her a spirit of fear but of power, of love and of a sound mind.
You are the same God who guided Sarah, Esther, Ruth and Mary. You are the same God who raised Lazarus from the dead. You are the same God who gives sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf and mobility to the paralyzed. You are El-Shaddai–God Almighty and she is your daughter. Every time she is blessed, you are glorified. Every time she is healed, you are glorified. Every time she is delivered, you are glorified.
It is because of your love for her that fear is cast out. It is your love that has saved her. It is your love that comforts and strengthens her. It is your love that gives her wisdom. It is your love that redeems her. It is your love that sustains her. It is your love that helps her to remember all of this. Your love restores peace to her soul. May your daughter continue to remember to praise you and never forget your promises.
“Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!” Luke 1: 45 NIV
