A Prayer When You Don’t Know What to Do

Lord, many are the afflictions of the righteous, but You have promised to deliver us out of them all. When I don’t know what to do, teach me to place my eyes on You — the Savior of my soul, the Almighty God, and my good, good Father.

I choose to trust You. I stand on the promises of Your Word — the promise to hear me when I cry out to You, the promise that You have plans and a future of hope for me … the promise that what was meant for evil against my loved one will be used for good.

The promise that You are our peace in the chaos and our Light in the darkness.

A Prayer When Groping in the Dark for God’s Hand

Lord, You are my light and my salvation, my refuge and my strength. Darkness is seeping into every corner of the world, it seems. But I know You are with us. When I’m groping in the dark trying to find You, You light the way for me. Your abiding presence brings me comfort, for You are sovereign, in control. And You are aware.

Some days fear and uncertainty try to overtake me, making it harder to find You as I’m groping in the dark. My hand is fumbling, seeking the familiarity of Your touch.
