This world is hurting. It is everywhere we turn. This whole world is groaning and crying out for its Savior. People are reeling with heartache and confusion. Lord, in the midst of chaos, help us turn to you for the peace that passes all understanding. Help us to look for your comfort. Let us diligently seek your hope. Help us to continually turn to you for strength.
Father, in a world that’s gone haywire, help us to remember that you are our constant. You are our rock. You are our good Father. You heal broken lives, broken people, and broken hearts. God, you are creator, sustainer, and ruler of all. Lord, God, you are sovereign. You are strong and mighty. You are righteous and kind. You are holy. You are just. You are near to all who call on you. You are faithful and true. You are judge and jury. You redeem and reconcile. You pour out unmerited mercy and grace. You are love.
We praise you for all that you are Lord. We love you and we trust you. We know that you watch over us. You don’t rest Lord. Your eyes are continually upon your children. You are our shield, our fortress, and our protection. You hide us in the cleft of the rock. You hem us in, behind and before, and your hand is upon us. You are our refuge. You are everywhere. There is no where that we can go that you aren’t present. Let that be our comfort.
Lord, when this world is madness and confusion, we turn towards you as our strength, hope, and comfort. Father, give us peace in our hearts and our minds. God, only you can bring peace in our world. Give us the peace that passes all understanding.
