Perhaps what we think prayer is; is different than what God considers our prayer. There are times when I am so frustrated, angry, and confused that when I bow my head I do not even have words to pray. In these trying times I have experience all of the emotions I have listed above almost at the same time. All I truly know is our God cares. He is trustworthy, and He sees and understands what we are feeling and hears even the silent words that are weeping and are screaming in our hearts.
By Faith I Pray
By faith I pray.
I know You hear what I say.
By faith I in Your strength stand,
As You chase the enemy from my land.
I proclaim by faith victory,
As I fulfill my destiny.
Way down deep inside,
I know God’s Word abides.
As I walk the paths of life
I know I’m led by Jesus Christ.
By His stripes I am healed…by faith I see,
That He has already done His work for me.
His Word is sure …His promises true,
In assurance ahead I will move.
Under the blood I am pure and white;
By faith I see I am His delight.
Under His watchful, jealous eye,
My faith is restored and daily supplied.
He that loved me loves me still.
By faith I will His purpose fulfill
I rejoice to seek His face each day.
And I wholeheartedly His instructions obey;
But if I fail, falter, or fall,
I will in faith shout out a repenting call.
I know He forgives me and again
Draws me to again to have faith in Him.
He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
