To stop burnout you must discover how to convert potential energy into actual energy and God has given us the key to do that. Use this prayer as a guide to overcome the difficulties you are currently experiencing in your life.
Pray for your friend
Lord, I ask for Your help today. My loved one is suffering from severe burnout. The pressures and responsibilities we face have piled up so greatly that it’s starting to weigh on them mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. This burnout has become such a weight that it’s crushing their joy, peace of mind, and overall satisfaction in life. Not only that, but it has made them not be able to be present with their family and friends.
The person who once enjoyed and thrived off time with their family and friends is now buried beneath the weight of the burnout they are experiencing. This burnout is affecting us all because we feel as if we are completely losing our loved one over this burnout.
Help remind them that they can come to you at any time and lay the weight upon them in your hands. Wrap Your loving arms around them and remind them that Your love is not based on performance. Help them to re-prioritize and figure out what things they simply need to let go of to maintain a healthier balance in life. Restore them to their family and friends as only you can do. We all wish to see them walk in the freedom you offer them once again instead of being buried under the weight of life.
In Your name I pray, Amen.
Pray for yourself
Lord, today I come to you to thank you for taking care of me. You have never failed me before, and I know that You will help me now. Please forgive me for trying to carry this burden.
Father, Your Word says that my help comes from the Lord. So I now lift up my eyes to You and ask for Your help. Help me to find the way and the keys to turn my potential energy into real energy. Help me to remain calm and patient when I need it. Fill me, renew my soul and help me to let go of my worries. Empower me with your promises. Please let me place it all on Your shoulders. Cover me with your grace, love and faithfulness.
Heal me from this burnout that I feel. Show me, first and foremost, where it comes from.
Please search me and show me the root of the matter. Teach me how to fight it and how to apply Your Word. Fill me with Your Spirit and give me wisdom and guidance.
In your Holy name, Amen.
Guide you next steps
I hope that this prayer will help you to find peace and set you on the right path. Do not let things burn you out and ruin your life, place it in Gods hands. May God bless you and your loved ones and guide you in the next stages of your life.
