Dear Lord, we come to you and offer this simple prayer for midweek. Our strength and creativity may be flagging. So where we are tempted to trust in our own resources, let us lean into your strength and trust you for support (Psalm 20:2). Where we are tempted to focus on the negative, let us rehearse your goodness in our minds (Psalm 145:7). For in rehearsing your goodness, your faithfulness, and your love, our minds and hearts are strengthened against the attacks of the enemy.
At midweek, Sunday can already seem so long ago. Let us not forget how you spoke to us on the weekend. Let us not forget how you moved in our circles, our state, our country. Let us not forget how you answered our prayers yesterday, last week, or a decade ago. (Psalm 118:17)
Renew our hope and renew our energy, so that we can soar on wings like eagles (Isaiah 40:28-31). Let the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be pleasing in your sight (Psalm 19:14). In Jesus’ name, amen.
