What's New
His Strength, My Wilderness
by Cori Mann

Author requests article critique


Lord Jesus,

I praise you today even though I am hurting. I thank you, even though I am weary, discouraged and anxious. I give you all the glory, even though my circumstances of today are not good. My hope remains in you, even though my life is more than challenging today. There is a struggle within that threatens to rob me of joy. I am encouraged though that you turn my sorrow into joy!

My faith is in you to turn things around for me. I trust you will show me once my strength and zest for life returns, how to work through this anxiety and fear.  Please forgive me for giving fear a foothold in my life. 

I am thankful for all you have done for me. Even in this time of so much uncertainty of today and the future. I know I have you to lean on, to guide my steps. I thank you for creating me. I thank you for sustaining me, for giving me strength. In my own strength I had none. Thank you for hearing my anxious hearts cry and for drying my tears. Thank you for comforting me when I couldn't see any comfort in sight. Lord, I love you, praise you and thank you.

Right now things may seems bleak and dark at best, yet I know you are in the midst of my circumstances. You will guide me through and lead me into your radiant light. I need you Lord.  You love me unconditionally.  No matter what this day holds for me, you are in control. It is all about you. All about seeking you first in everything. You can turn this pain of today into something to be used for your glory in the future.

In your presence, I will continue to be transformed. My life will be changed and I will be truly free.  Your Living Word must guide me and change my heart. No man here on earth can do that. I cannot do that. My circumstances good or bad cannot do that. You can do this. Today, I pray for rest and a calm spirit. My eyes on you not the fear and anxiety within me. You know all about everything I am facing. You know all that has created it. Teach me in this time to be patient, endure with grace and dignity even though it is hard. My life is in you, not in these problems I face.

Thank you for carrying me through this day and standing beside me as I walked through it tired.  Though I have much uncertainty in my heart, I know you are there. 

You calm the anxiety and quench all my fears. You are more powerful than fear, anxiety and uncertainty. You are all I need. You gave me the strength sufficient for today. You will give me the strength sufficient for all my tomorrows, this I know. Even when I think I have none left, I know you will not give me more than I can handle.

Forgive me for falling short in my faith. Forgive me Lord, for failing to seek you first at times, falling into fear instead.  It is all to be done in your strength not mine. Thank you for all you have done for me and never forsaking me.   People fail people. You fail no one. I love you Lord, I praise you Lord, I give you all the glory.

You are the Alpha, Omega, beginning and the end. I am blessed. I am saved. I give you praise.  I desire to be transformed by you from the inside and out. May my life be a living testimony of all that you have done for me. Others will see the changes in my life and come to you also.

Without you there is no hope or peace. Without you anything I have been through has no meaning. Thank you, that you brought me through so many wildernesses. You are preparing me to walk boldly and courageously for you. Nothing can take away your presence in my life or all that you mean to me.

My hope is in you. My strength is your strength. You have given me mountains of blessings, supplied all my needs. All you provide is sufficient for each day of my life. I know you will keep taking care of me. Your Word says I am worth more than many sparrows. I do not need to give fear a stronghold over me because you are with me always.

In Jesus name,



"So don't be afraid you are worth more than many sparrows" Matthew 10:31 (NIV) 



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
