When Evil Abounds, Hold My Hand, Lord

Lord, my heart is so troubled. Sorrow washes over me with an agony of heart. Groaning, too deep for words ascend to Your holy hill. When evil abounds, hold my hand, Lord. Wrap me in Your warm embrace of comfort.

As deep calls to deep, I call to You. I ask that the depth of my pain would meet the depth of Your love and I would find peace. I pray the same for everyone impacted by these recent shootings. I pray the same for our nation. Pour out Your grace. Wash over us with Your great love.

Either I believe … or I don’t.

He is the Alpha & Omega, But I’m Found in the Middle

Lord, I love the knowledge of Your sovereignty. I love the fact that You are the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. But I’m here in the middle, waiting, wondering … hoping for a heavenly response to my need.

Give me eyes to see, Lord. Give me tenacious faith to wait, perseverance to hope.
