So today, pour out your heart to the Lord, the One who keeps his promises and lifts those with heavy burdens. The Lord is close, he hears our cries for help and he protects all those who love him.

Father God, thank you for lifting us up when our burdens seem too heavy to carry. Lord, thank for never leaving our side and for hearing our cries for help. Lord, thank you for keeping your promises to the past, current and future generations to come. Lord, because of your great love we understand acts of mercy and how to extend grace to others. Lord, help us to relinquish our desire to control our lives and bring our thoughts and motives before you. Lord, teach us to seek you first before we make decisions. Lord, guide us with a steady hand and lead us on the right path. Lord, be with our loved ones who don’t have a relationship with you. Lord, draw them near to you and teach them your ways. Lord, fill them with your love and faith so that they may fully experience your greatness in their lives. Lord, we leave our burden of _______ and ________, in your capable hands. We trust that you will work all things out for the good of those who love you and have been called according to your purpose. Lord, we thank you and trust you. In Jesus name, amen.
