Prayer Focus For Today 4th June 2023: A Prayer for Navigating Our Unchanging Circumstances 

“We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed– always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 

For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may  be manifested in our mortal flesh. So then death is working in us, but life in you.” – 2 Corinthians 4:8-12 NKJV 

I showed up at the office, trying not to grumble. But unfortunately, we had gone through a leadership change, and the outcome was proving detrimental. Communication could have been better, access to things we had access to before was slowly being closed off, and the morale overall was tanking. During this time, I had several job interviews. For one job, I was waiting for the official offer. I waited and waited and then sent a follow-up email. Thinking I probably did not get the job, I heard otherwise. The woman who was doing the hiring had to leave town for a family emergency. 

Things at my current job continued to crumble. We found out we needed to move several of our offices to new locations within a month. So, it was pretty much chaotic all summer as I continued to wait for the email saying I got the job. After roughly a month, I sent another follow-up email. “We are doing some internal structuring,” was the reply I received. Since there was still a lot going on at my current job, I believed God had a plan, but in full disclosure, I was ready to leave. I was praying one night, and I believe the Lord impressed me to “stay steady.” It felt like a death sentence. In my mind, I had stayed there long enough. I had added value, and I was ready to move on. But I also felt like I had learned about as much as I was going to. “Lord, please don’t ask me to stay longer,” I prayed.  
Fast forward two months and the job I applied for finally told me about their decision. Unfortunately, in their restructuring, they realized they needed someone in a managerial position, so the position I applied for became obsolete. And the boss at my current job put in her notice. The Lord kept me at the job for another eight months. In those eight months, many things that had been damaged, including several relationships and morale, were restored. Misunderstandings had been cleared up with some of the managers, we hired an excellent boss to lead us, and by the time I left, everything was in order. Only God knew what was ahead and why I needed to stay steady. To this day, I am still very close friends with everyone I worked with. 

Why do I say this? Because that season gave me the training, I need for my current season. There have been unanswered questions and situations where I need to remain steady. It’s a lot easier said than done, and it takes the Lord’s help because He is the one who never changes! It is only because of Him that I am able to stay steady. 


Let’s pray:
Dear Father, 
Thank You that You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. Thank You that despite our unanswered questions on earth, our eternity is secure because of Jesus’ work on the cross. Thank You that You are with us; because of You, we can remain steady. Thank You that Your love for us is patient, kind, and not easily angered. Thank You that Your love endures, hopes, and bears all things. I pray that You would help us to love like You. Help us to be long-suffering. Help us to wait on You. You promise that You are good to those who wait on You (Lamentations 3:26)

This Is the Assurance of Answers to Your Prayers – Matthew 7:7-11

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.

Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will YOUR FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN GIVE GOOD THINGS TO THOSE WHO ASK HIM!

Please pray with faith in your heart and remember to lead someone to pray with these prayer points!
