You’re frustrated and tired of conversing with God about the same old habits regarding that particular person, right? It’s ok, I have those moments. Heck, we all do. However, when that feeling overtakes you and becomes so overwhelming, that is the best time to go pray for yourself.
Yes, yourself—there's nothing selfish about it.
See, it’s obvious that you’ve reached a breaking point, and you need to feel God’s love and peace too.The thing is, you’ll get so caught up in trying to pray for that other person or persons, your voice becomes monotonous and lacking heartfelt faith. So, your prayers for that person aren’t reaching God successfully. Why? Because he listens to our hearts when we pray.
Give every burden you’re carrying to God while you’re praying for self.You are not being self-centered or inconsiderate in ceasing to pray for him…or her. You are simply resetting and taking a moment to reconnect with God so that you are refreshed and ready to listen to his directions. God will search your heart and take out anything that shouldn't be there...including feelings of frustration and hopelessness.
Don’t worry, you will pray for him…or her, tomorrow. Pray for yourself today. You must.
