“Dear Heavenly Father,
I confess that my prayers to you feel empty and powerless. I pray about the same things over and over again, and have little peace. I try my best to pray with faith, but I can’t seem to shake the anxieties and temptations that attack my mind and heart.
Hebrews 11:6 ESV And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
I know that the Bible says You never forsake us and You are always by my side. Yet I can’t sense Your reassuring presence or Your comfort, counsel, hope, and peace. Are Your promises of an abundant life and every spiritual blessing being blocked or stolen from me? What do I need to get right before You, my Holy Father in heaven, so that Satan does not get any chance to steal, kill and destroy Your will for me?
