Midweek Morsel: A Prayer for Weary Hearts


Anyone weary today, anyone needing refreshment? Everything from overwork to financial distress to relationship struggles to caregiving responsibilities to personal illness or pain can leave us depleted of all energy, emptied of all strength to continue.

If you need an infusion of strength and fresh energy, may my prayer for you today give you the second wind you need to press on!

Father, this child of yours is weary. There’s no easy answer to her problem. She’s lost all strength to continue and will fall without your help. Help her, Lord, to lift her eyes and look to you—and then show her that you care. Bathe her in your light and love, reenergize her from your divine storehouse of strength. Send your angels to minister to her needs. And as she rises to press on, may your praise be on her lips, may you receive the glory. All this I ask in the precious name of Jesus. Amen.

“‘I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.’” Jeremiah 31:25

  1. This post, as well as the post on March 7th, renewed my trust in the Lord. I’ve had memories of my past that would wake me during the night and I couldn’t understand why after all these years… finally, after reading your posts, I realize that Satan has been clouding my thoughts. I have a renewed energy and trust in the Lord and I’ll be reading your posts whenever those negative thoughts try to make their way back in. You certainly have a beautiful way with words, Cheryl, and they bring everything into perspective. Thank you!

    • Tamra, what a blessing to hear that God has used my posts to help you — thanks so much for sharing that with me! And thanks for your kind and encouraging comments about my writing. So very glad that God is using my words to bless you! I pray that God will continue to help you with the way Satan is trying to cloud your thoughts. So thankful that our God is greater!

  2. Thank you, Cheryl. This post speaks to me and I accept the prayer as one prayed for me at this time of weariness. Love you.

    • Lavon, I’m so glad this post blessed you — thanks for letting me know. I’ve prayed it again just for you. May God strengthen you for each new day. Love you, too!
