“Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” Psalm 51:12 ESV
Dear Heavenly Father,
Lately, I’ve felt my faith weakening. So much is going on in the world that has caused me to question where you are in all of this. Yet I know in my heart you hear our cries for help. You are always with us, ready to offer restored hope when we ask.
Your Word reminds us you are a God of restoration. You love making things new. Second Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” Lord, renew my faith right now, just as you have done before. Help me trust in your steadfast Word instead of what I see happening all around me. Your promises are powerful, even when circumstances seem hopeless. I know you desire to restore my spirit and my faith. You are my Healer, Provider, and Deliverer. I put my trust in you alone.
Thank you, God for forgiving me for letting my faith wane instead of holding onto you. You are forever faithful, and I give you praise today. Even as I call out to you in prayer, I sense my faith being fully restored.
In Jesus’ name,
