This is a prayer for the hurting.
For the ones who are crying out to Jesus when the world sleeps but your mind is wide awake. May we surrender our tears and guard our hearts.
I wrote this poem one morning after a restless night. Guarding my heart means making sure my pain and tears do not lead me into bitterness. Sometimes when I allow my emotions to control me, I end up isolating myself from others and God’s purpose for my life. When we turn towards God in our pain, we allow him to comfort us in ways that only he can.
🍶You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Psalm 56:8
❤️ Guard your heart with all diligence, for from it flow springs of life. Proverbs 4:23
💦 Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. Psalm 126:5
🙏🏻 Test me, Lord, and try me, examine my heart and mind. Psalm 26:2
