With everything that is happening in the world today—just when things seem to abate something else happens. I know many are wondering, “Are we going to have to co-exist with Covid? Will it ever go away?” People are homeschooling their children which is added stress; until they can figure it out. Some parents are sending their children back to school because they have no other recourse and are praying to God they don’t come home with Covid. People in the workplace have that also on their minds. Looking at everyone from a different perspective wondering who is a carrier and who is not. When you can’t see beyond the mask that too seems unnatural.
But if we walk upright we have nothing to fear. For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. (2 Chronicles 16:9 NKJV)
We hope this prayer will help you through these troubled times.
Almighty and loving God, fill me with your peace. For I am prone to worry, anxiety threatens to steal my peace. The world around me can be frightening, my situation perilous. The storms and trials in my life overwhelming. Yet, I know you are more than all of this. Fill me with your peace which passes all understanding. Help me to pray first, and worry less. Remind me that you will fight for me and I don’t need to worry or be anxious about anything. For you are mighty and all-powerful, and in you I can find peace and strength. All this I pray through your loving Son, Jesus Christ, Amen.
