A Prayer for a Weary Soul

“Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God.” Psalm 43:5 NKJV

We try to avoid reaching the point of mental and spiritual exhaustion, but sometimes life sends us one thing right after another and knocks us off our feet. It sucks the energy out of us, and it’s all we can do to simply muster the strength to whisper, “Lord I am tired and weary!” For those reasons, I hope this prayer will help you find rest. This is for all who are worn out from this life.

Heavenly Father, I’m tired. How long can this go on? I’m struggling. I’m weary. Normally I come to you with praise and thankfulness, but right now my mind is so exhausted that I can’t begin to find the words to pray. All I know is that I feel like I’m drowning. I’m overwhelmed. My strength needs to be renewed. Refresh my mind. Give me the perspective You want me to have. Help me to see Your hand at work in this situation. Show me how to rest in You fully. I know that I don’t have enough strength and fortitude, but You do. Your strength is made perfect in my weakness. With You, I am strong. Please make that very real to me right now. Help me remember that I’m a cherished child of the King of Kings. Still this storm. Calm my mind. Heal me of my weariness. Gently lead me out from under this heavy fog I’m in right now. This is hard and I need You. Jesus, be my Prince of peace. Answer my prayers, Lord, for I know You can. You are ABLE!!!

In Your holy Name, which is above all names, amen.
