A Prayer for When Life is Hard

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.—Proverbs 19:21 (NIV)

Devotional author Julia Attaway writes that there is one question you can ask God when you are in the midst of a problem. Instead of dwelling on your feelings, ask God, “Lord, what do you want me to learn?” Perhaps His lesson is patience or trust. Listen for His answer.

Lord, help me to stay calm when trouble arises, guide me to find purpose in every situation.
