This prayer is from “Tough Minded Faith For Tender Hearted People” by Robert H Schuller
Scripture: “This is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith.” - 1 John 5:4
Almighty God, You know what I am undergoing. Help me to overcome. Don’t let me become a pessimist. Preserve my optimistic outlook. I may lose many things, Father, but let me never lose my faith.
- Lord, you were the Under-goer who became the Over-comer!
- You died on the cross;
- You rose on Easter.
Today hundreds of millions of people around the world know You, love You, respect You, admire You, draw inspiration and life from You! You promise to be my Friend. You promise that if I keep believing I will win. You promise: “This is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith.” Give me the courage to overcome the negative feelings that may depress my spirit, deflate my hopes, and defuse my enthusiasm.
My faith tells me that I have Your power within me now, because You are standing beside me, encouraging me all the way with Your promise, “Victory will be yours, My friend.”
Thank You, Jesus Christ. Amen
