A Prayer of Truths for When You Just Don’t Feel It

Hey, God. Yeah, it’s me again.


I’m tired. And to be honest, it doesn’t seem like You’re doing a whole lot to help out here, but I know my feelings can be liars.

Truth PrayerI feel like you’re off somewhere else, giving everyone else their miracles.

I feel like when I talk to You, You just can’t hear it. Either You’re distracted by someone else’s more eloquent prayers or maybe You’re enthralled in your favorite worship song rising up from the multitudes around Your throne.

I feel alone.

I feel defeated.

I feel a lot of things, but I know that my feelings have lead me astray before. So I’m here to remind myself of things I know to be true – whether my feelings match up to the Truth or not.

I know You are good, and You are for my ultimate and eternal good. (Psalm 145:8-13, Romans 8:28)

I know You delight in giving Your children good gifts. (Matthew 7:11)

I know You care about me, and all the tiny details of my life and who I am. (Luke 12:23-25)

I know that You love me. (John 3:16-18, 1 John 3:1, Romans 8:38-39)

I know that You are in control. (Psalm 103:18-20, 1 Timothy 6:14-16)

I know You are faithful. (Psalm 36:4-6, Psalm 89)

Help my heart – my feelings – catch up with what I know.

I believe, Lord….help my unbelief!!

In hopeful fatigue, and in the Powerful name of Jesus I ask these things, knowing You are faithful.
