Prayer for Contentment

Help me, Lord, to be content with where You have placed me.  Please help me learn how to serve You in such a way that I will please You.  Thank You for the opportunity You have provided me.

Please forgive me for being unwilling to learn.  I’m sorry.  Help me dive in and live the love and learn and grow and enjoy life.  You’ll move me when You’re ready.  Please help me to be ready when You are so I won’t have to run the same track over and over and over again.  I’m so sorry for wanting to go backwards, for being resistant to change, for lamenting when I should be learning, for crying when I should be crowding Your throne.  Please forgive me.

I know I’ll still cry, and I know it will still be hard, but please help me to surrender to Your will and not mine.  I don’t need to look for anything else.  You will give me what You want me to have.  I don’t see how I’m going to make it past tomorrow, to be honest, but make it I will, because You are with me.  Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies (even if my biggest enemy is myself).  My cup runs over.  Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in Your house forever.

Thank You for never leaving me and never forsaking me.  Thank You for having a plan for me – a plan not to harm me but to give me hope and a future.  Thank You for making Your strength perfect in my weakness.  Thank You for being sovereign and for reminding me that You’ve got this.  Thank You that You will always step in right on time, even if my idea of right on time differs from Yours.  Thank You for knowing me and loving me anyway.

Thank You.  Thank You.  Thank You.  I ask for Your continued blessings and directions, and I give You praise in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

Jeremiah 29:11
