Prayer for comfort and consolation
Father God, we approach your throne of grace today, clothed in the righteousnesss of Christ. We ask that you would be our shield and buckler. We pray for you comforter, the Holy Spirit to comfort those who mourn in Zion. As the song says "you have given me the oil of gladness, a garment of praise instead of mourning, A shining crown instead of ashes and glory in the face of despair.When my life was without purpose, you gave me a reason to live. Now my heart is full of thanksgiving for all of the riches you give. I delight grealy in you, my soul rejoices and sings. For you took my empty life and filled it with every good thing" We thank you Lord for "the oil of gladness" in the face of despair in our lives. We thank you Lord foryou anointing that breaks the yokes of bondage in our lives. We take authority over sorrow and sadness and ask you to fill our cups Lord and come and quench this thirsting of our souls. Bread of heaven fill us till we want no more. Pour your Spirit fill us once again. We give you thanks and praise for being our comforter and a friend who sticks closer than a brother. In Jesus ame we pray Amen.
