Psalm 51:8,12"Oh, give me back my joy again; you have broken me—now let me rejoice.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you. "Lord,
As the Psalmist in this chapter, I am broken. I miss the little baby that you gave me. I ache to hold him and rock him and kiss his forehead again. I loved him so much. I don't want to go on to life as it was before. I pray that you please help me follow you, and please restore to me your joy.Josh said tonight that he thinks Nehemiah lived as long as he did as a gift from you to comfort us. I thank you for that gift, and ask you now to comfort us and restore joy to us.
In Jesus name I pray...
Lord, give me an outpouring of your hope. I fear losing my mind as I mourn the lose of the child you gave me. Please protect me and help me rest in safety as I seek you and try to go forward with life on this cruel earth.
