Father God; I’m praying for a friend
He and I have been hanging out for a while but lately,
I can tell something ain’t right with him
His feelings seem to dominate how he behaves and everything that he does
He is a self sacrificing brother, enjoys a lot from music and is a very faithful friend but he barely makes any friends cos usually
He finds it hard to express himself
He has a family that loves him so much and I know he loves them back
But they may never know it
He doesn’t know how to show it
He’s been walking around like a wounded soldier
Though on the outside he looks fine
On the inside I can tell that his soul is wounded
He’s been working harder and harder everyday
Hoping that his situation might change
But it ain’t changed yet n he’s breaking up
Lord, I know that he knows you
He talks about you, you know
I just can’t seem to quite understand
Why for the past couple of days he’s not thinking of you?
It’s been a while since the last time he read your word
I can tell he’s trying to run away from all the madness
But he hasn’t been praying either
He says that every time he tries to pray
He gets this image in his mind of how sinful and unworthy he is before you
He feels like he’s too messed up for love
And any time he’s able to pray, it’s like your face is concealed
Help him to be patient until your grace is revealed
Lord I pray that you may open his eyes that he might be able to see beyond the hurt, beyond the pain, beyond the misery that is his life
Help my brother understand that he ought to have died and buried for all the wrongs that he has done but Christ died on the cross and carried them all on his back!
So all he needs to do is Believe!
OH! And one more thing Father
The friend that I’ve been praying about is really me!
