A Prayer to Overcome Despair and Hopelessness

A Prayer to Overcome Despair and Hopelessness

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will” (Romans 12:1-2).

We live in a world that is filled with despair and hopelessness. If we were to admit it personally, there is not one of us who hasn’t had the enemy strike hard at us with feelings of despair at one time or other. We live in the world system, and we fight the devil on a daily basis. There is a battlefield of the mind where we wrestle against the powers of darkness. The enemy strikes hard with hopelessness and despair. It’s deep-seated and it’s everywhere – even within the body of Christ. The devil will scream in our ears, “You’re no good.” “God’s will for you is not good.” “Your situation is hopeless.” It’s hard to live in victory when we believe enemy lies.

It’s time to take charge of negative thinking. We have power to cast down all thoughts of despair and hopelessness. We do not have to be a captive to negative thoughts that lead to despair. We can renew our mind in God’s Word. It’s not by trying harder to change, but by seeing more clearly how God evaluates us.

This is a 5 1/2 minute teaching and prayer that will help you to overcome despair and negative feelings in your life. It is called: A Prayer to Overcome Despair and Hopelessness.

A Prayer to be Like Jesus in Humility

A Prayer to be Like Jesus in Humility

“The revelation of His glory includes seeing One so high (transcendence) who went so low (condescension) to bring us so near (redemption) because we are so dear (Bride). The Most High God went so low because of such great desire to partner with us… We are awestruck by His power, overwhelmed by His humility, and made confident by His love.” Mike Bickle

If we want to be people of prayer, we must learn to walk in the humility of Jesus. Jesus was humble. Perhaps this was His most outstanding characteristic. Imagine if you were God—equal with the Father, sharing glory with Him, having every privilege of being God—and then you became a man and laid aside all those privileges. “He is the image of the invisible God” (Colossians 1:15). Imagine becoming the servant of all and being God hidden in the obscurity of humanity.

It’s easy for us to say we’re humble and broken until the real test comes, and we are put in a humbling position. We wonder, “Why aren’t we recognized?” We react and don’t like it. We want to be important and are often so proud. But Jesus became nothing during His life on earth, and He gives us His example so that we may follow in His steps.

This 6-minute prayer and teaching will help you to grow in humility and be like Jesus. It is called: A Prayer to be Like Jesus in Humility.
