PRAYER FOR TREASURES IN THE DARK
I will give you the treasures of darkness and the hoards in secret places, that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who call you by your name. Isaiah 45:3
Treasure ~ something valuable stored away. ‘Treasury’ and ‘treasure house’ frequently signify a place where treasure is stored, generally attached to a sanctuary.
PRAYER: Jesus, is it possible that there is wealth and treasure in all the darkest places of my life? The places that have felt like death and destruction? My eyes do not yet see what You see yet in certain places. You are saying that what has appeared to nearly destroy me really contains a treasury of spiritual riches? Wow, Jesus! What I have wanted to curse, I should bless.
I am willing to have my mind changed. I am willing to begin to see that event as You see it. I am willing to give up my entitlement that says that You should have prevented it. I am willing to do whatever I need to do to see redemption rather than pain. Begin to speak to me about this and take the veil off the eyes of my soul. Forgive me for speaking words of hopelessness. I have not seen the vast treasury you have been investing into the shadows of my life but I accept that reality today by faith.
I am Yours. You speak my name right now with tenderness and ownership. I realize that Your death became my treasure. Your darkest hour became my saving hour. So, give me the grace to embrace my cross so that Your treasures may be revealed. In Jesus name, Amen
