Pour Out Your Heart When You Pray

Pour Your Heart Out When You Pray: Jeremiah 10: The Charm of Home

The Coming Destruction

17 Pack your bags and prepare to leave;
    the siege is about to begin.
18 For this is what the Lord says:
“Suddenly, I will fling out
    all you who live in this land.
I will pour great troubles upon you,
    and at last you will feel my anger.”
19 My wound is severe,
    and my grief is great.
My sickness is incurable,
    but I must bear it.
20 My home is gone,
    and no one is left to help me rebuild it.
My children have been taken away,
    and I will never see them again.
21 The shepherds of my people have lost their senses.
    They no longer seek wisdom from the Lord.
Therefore, they fail completely,
    and their flocks are scattered.
22 Listen! Hear the terrifying roar of great armies
    as they roll down from the north.
The towns of Judah will be destroyed
    and become a haunt for jackals.

Jeremiah’s Prayer

23 I know, Lord, that our lives are not our own.
    We are not able to plan our own course.
24 So correct me, Lord, but please be gentle.
    Do not correct me in anger, for I would die.
25 Pour out your wrath on the nations that refuse to acknowledge you—
    on the peoples that do not call upon your name.
For they have devoured your people Israel[c];
    they have devoured and consumed them,
    making the land a desolate wilderness.
Jeremiah 10

Pray like Jeremiah.

I love Jeremiah's way to pray his heart out. He really lets God know how things are for him. Thank you for posting. Blessings to you!

I am thinking of a chorus we sang years back "I'm Gona Pour out My Heart Lord"....

Lori Schumaker said...

These words are so authentic to our hearts when we intercede on behalf of those whom we love, but are living in opposition to Christ. “Correct, but please be gentle.” It reminds me of the Prayers I have said on behalf of someone ...” Lord, bring him to a place where he knows he needs You. But, oh, please be gentle in what how he comes to that place.”

Thanks so much for joint me at #MomentsofHope, Sherry!

Awesome Lori Schumaker! The Father can correct in anyway he pleases and yes, please may it always be gentle. Thanks for sharing your prayers.
