Prayer Journal: Day 177

Day 177

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us… Hebrews 12:1 NKJV 

My dad, Henry Akao, ran eight marathons during his lifetime. I have never even attempted one. I am so easily prone to fatigue now post COVID-19 that I can’t imagine having the endurance to start running, let alone finish a race. 

Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. He can finish our races for us when we are too weary to continue. He has strength in contrast to our weaknesses. 

When we ask Jesus for help daily, and even at every moment that we need Him, the weight that we carry on our shoulders lightens. The future seems brighter with Him at our side. Amen.
