Prayer according to Isaiah 9, Verse 5 for Smallgroups, Service and Devotion

Prayer according to Isaiah 9, Verse 5

Wonderful Counselor,
my heart is full of questions.
I long for insight
and for your wisdom.
Within me so many conflicting thoughts.
Heal me, God.

Strong God,
I feel drained,
the colors of my life seem washed out.
From all sides I am of demands, opinions and constraints.
Free myself from the influence of my fellow men
and give me innerpeace.
Heal me, God.

Eternal Father,
I wish deeply to find a home.
My heart longs for security and comfort
– I would like to finally arrive
at the destination of my longing.
Hold me in your strong arms
let me breathe deeply.
Heal me, God.

Prince of peace,
so often I am driven by my ambition
and the apparent necessities of this world.
Let me know that I am your king’s child,
and no one is entitled to my time,
my heart and my longing.
You rule my life
and lead me with a sure hand towards eternity.
Heal me, God.

 

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9, Verse 5

I would be very happy if you use and share my prayers in your family, smallgroup or service. Please refer to me and use them only in a private, non commercial manner, thank you.

Prayer „God of everyday life“ for smallgroups and services

I’m always happy and grateful, when the Holy Spirit touches my heart and donates a new poem or prayer to me. When this happens, I need immediately a pen and a scrap of paper to write it down. It feels, as if an ocean wave rolls over me and washes my soul in the new message, which I only need to write down.

So it’s my deep wish to translate my prayers, because only very few people worldwide speak (and like…) german. I would be very happy if you use and share my prayers in your family, smallgroup or service. Please refer to me and use them only in a private, non commercial manner, thank you.
