Lord, there are days when my prayer life stagnates. When the old trusty prayers fail to inspire. When new words won’t come. Everything is dry as the desert. On these days, I ask you to come to me in a new way. Help me discover fresh ways to see you, to talk with you… to know you. Refresh my desert days with living water.
Lord, there are days when I forget to pray at all. When signs of you are all around me, but I fail to see them. Instead my mind focuses on the endless “to do” list. The daily distractions of the outer world. On these days I ask you to send me a reminder of your loving presence. Help me to see your authorship in all that surrounds me. Guide me from my wandering with a gentle reminder.
Lord, there are days when I find myself stuck. Clenching my fist tightly around a past hurt or a stubborn mindset. This holding on becomes a holding back. On these days, I ask you to grant me permission to let go. Release me from all that holds me in chains. So that I might move forward in love and action and inspiration.

And he will restore you. I believe we all have those moments when it seems like our prayers have become dry. It’s in those moments that we need a refresher and I believe God gives it to us.
I couldn’t agree more. It’s hard to see a way out of the dry, desert times… but God always provides one. Thanks for your comment!
Sheri, I was drawn to your blog by this post. The whole site is beautifully written; and I can feel the Lords’ Spirit as I read your inspired words.
Thank you so much! I’m glad you’ve found some inspiration here. Everything I write is guided by the Spirit, so it’s nice to hear that it’s getting through! God bless.
