Overwhelmed

God of Strength,

I am not handling all that I am facing very well at the moment.  I feel there is too much to be done and too little of me to do it.  I feel like an excessive burden is always on my shoulders.  There is so much to be done and I can’t seem to accomplish much of anything. 

So, I pray that You help me look at things realistically and remove the tasks that aren’t important.  Help me to simplify.  I also pray that You give me a spirit willing to accept challenges and work hard to meet them.  If I don’t have a proper work ethic, please reveal that to me and give me determination and resolve.  If I am procrastinating in some way, please show me that and help me to order my days and prioritize.  Also, I ask you to strengthen me in every area of my life, so that tasks don’t feel so heavy and simply aren’t as hard.

Most of all, Lord, I pray that You will be my helper.  I pray that You would make me aware that every task is done in Your presence.  Help me understand that You will not allow more to come into my life than I can handle. 

I pray these things in the strong name of Jesus,


Amen.

 

Psalm 61: 1-4  “Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer.  From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.  For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower for the enemy.  I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.”
