Praying God's Promises

In the J.U.L.I.E.T ministry at church, we are reading A Confident Heart by Renee Swope.  At the end of chapter one was the following prayer.

Lord, I pray that You would give me a confident heart in Christ.  Take me beyond believing in You to truly believing You.  Help me rely on the power of Your promises and live like they are true.  You say blessed is the one who trusts in you and whose hope and confidence are found in You.  Those who hope in You will not be disappointed, because You work all things together for good for those who love You and are called according to your purpose.
 When self-doubt tells me I can't overcome my insecurities, I will believe Your promise that all things are possible to whoever believes.  I will not throw away my confidence, because you say it will be richly rewarded.  I will persevere so that when I have done the will of god, I will receive what You have promised.  My confidence is in Christ and I am no longer one who shrinks back and is destroyed, but one who believes and is saved!  In Jesus' name, Amen.  
These words are beautiful.  My personal struggle with Infertility has been heartbreaking for me. It often consumes me.  Many of my insecurities stem from this one situation that has dominated my life and thoughts for almost two years now.  

I just wanted to share this prayer with all of y'all who are going through difficulties (infertility and other).  God knows our hearts and hears our prayers.

I'm sorry that the majority of my posts lately seem to be me throwing a constant pity party for myself.  My goal is to aim to share more about what God's doing in our (B and me) life.   We have been blessed beyond measure.  God will provide a family for us.  I know it in my heart.


  1. Thanks for sharing. I keep telling myself in our darkest hour is when God loves us the most. So often I feel consumed by all of this too, but I can't help it. Continued prayers for you!

  2. Thank you for sharing this!! It is just what I needed to hear for all areas of my life, especially the infertility area. God bless you and B!
