Winter Prayer

May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you! May those who love your salvation say evermore, “God is great!” But I am poor and needy; hasten to help me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not delay!—Psalm 70:4,5

Sometimes, good Lord, it seems we can do nothing except go through the winters of our lives. Nothing except endure brutal and bullish winds that blow in and disrupt. Nothing except; wait out the storms that come with no prompting of our wills or ill will. In times when the winds are blowing hard and the storms do not cease, give us strength O Lord to wait it out. Give us patience to wait on You. Give us a deeper understanding of Your ways and even the ways of this earthly journey so we do not despair or lose heart. Give us peace of mind though we look and see injustice, inequality, and oppression swirling all around, though we see affliction and sickness drifting up to our doors. Though the frigid winds of poverty and lack, and so much more, blow hard, keep us from being tossed about by faithlessness and doubt but instead let us continually say; “Our God is great, and greatly to be praised.” Let us continually say; “We praise and magnify Your name. Our God has done great things for us and we are glad!”

In our winters Lord, remember all our needs: both temporal and spiritual and bless us accordingly. Remember that we are only dust and therefore are frail and in need of assistance from You. Remember that we can only endure so much before we fall to the ground and cannot get back up. Remember that one day seems as a thousand although it has not been very long at all. Remember we make mistakes but do not mean to go contrary to Your will or desires. Remember we are forgetful of the good things You have done for us in the past and need to be reminded again through Your current heapings of mercy and grace. Remember Your love for us through Jesus Your dear Son and do not grow impatient or weary of us or be angry with us forever. Remember Your promise; “Never will I leave you and never will I abandon you.” Remember to sing over us in the soul wearying nights and to guard us during excruciating days. Remember us O Lord, and all the while give us strength and help to proclaim Your praises evermore and say; “Even so, our God is great and greatly to be praised! We praise and magnify His name. Our God has done great things for us and we are glad!” Amen
