Oh Lord, I pray that You will do unto me as You please. You know exactly what I need in this life and I ask that You supply those needs. I am sorry for complaining when I am sick, in pain, having lost a job, in financial issues, when marriage is hard, and more. Instead of all these murmurings and complaints, I could have very well prayed for healing, to remove the pain, to find a better job, help us to pay the bills and have food on the table, to help me become a better husband, and more. I am sorry, God. Forgive me for all the times I doubted what You could do for me. So often have I forgotten You when life is hard. I should have come to You for help and I didn’t. Have mercy for my soul. I am sorry for the times I have sinned against You in this life. As for my life now, I am still a work in progress, while trying to let You in my life daily. Have patience with me, Lord. I need to know that Your love for me will never fail. I want to know You, Lord, and have You know me. This way I will be ready when I die. Have Your way in me. You are my God, and there is no one like You. Light up my life, Lord. I love You. Amen.
Exodus 17:4-6 (KJV)
4 And Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me.
5 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.
6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
When we murmur against God, we are also tempting God, which is evil. Instead, pray for His help and assistance.
