God, Lead Us Through These Days. Help Us See Your Hand

“For I hold you by your right hand—
    I, the Lord your God.
And I say to you,
    ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.” ~ Isaiah 41:13, NLT

“I will be your God throughout your lifetime—
    until your hair is white with age.
I made you, and I will care for you.
    I will carry you along and save you.”~ Isaiah 46:4, NLT

“You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!” ~ 2 Timothy 3:1-5, NLT

 “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” ~ Matthew 24:6-8. NKJV

Lead Us Through These Frightening Days, Lord

Father, You are the Almighty God, Maker of heaven and earth. You are sovereign over all things — Your power is unmatched. Lead us through these frightening days. Help us see Your hand in all things.

There are wars and rumors of war, earthquakes, fires, and floods. The earth is groaning with the spiritual battle that is at hand. The depravity of mankind is clear for all to see.

Lead us through these frightening days, Lord

You see too, Lord. And You know all about it.

You know Your children. You search our hearts and know our anxious thoughts. Remind us who You are and who we are to You … Your sons and daughters, loved with incomprehensible love.

Lord, You are our Shepherd who will lead us through these days. Your rod and Your staff comfort us. You prepare a table — a feast — before us in the presence of our enemies because with You by our side, we have no reason to fear. You are the Lion of Judah! Roar with Your thunderous voice and bring order to the chaos. Overcome the evil by the power of Your might.

Lion of Judah, overcome the evil with Your might

Let us feel the grip of Your hand as You lead us through these darkened days. Open our eyes to see You, awaken our hearts to recognize Your hand over all things … and find the courage that is bathed in Your peace.

Peace …

You  Are a Very Present Help in Times of Trouble. Lead Us Lord

O, Lord, we are desperate for Your peace. With our eyes on You and our mind stayed on who You are, we will be kept in Your perfect peace as You lead us by Your righteous right hand. You are a very present help in times of trouble. I am so thankful.

In the Name of Jesus, I pray,

Amen ~ let it be so
