Father God, we admit we are creatures of habit. We like systems and routines because we find comfort in the semblance of control.
And though we are not of this world, we are in the world.
It takes faith to refuse the mindset of this world.
Father, in this worldwide and national crisis we find everything we declared “necessary” undone.
Anything where Jesus wasn’t central fell apart because He is the only One who holds all things together.
The enemy’s wicked attack on humanity disrupted our routine, but through it, You are reestablishing order.
Where we’ve pursued fame, fortune, and fleshly desires, You call us to re-prioritize our lives around Christ.
To put Christ at the center of our pursuits. To live lives for His glory, not ours. To seek first your kingdom and the righteousness only found in Jesus Christ.
And to trust that when we put your concerns first, You will take care of ours.
We fix our eyes on Jesus, the only One able to keep us from stumbling in these dark times.
It’s His wisdom and counsel we esteem above all others and it’s Him we give all honor. It’s in Jesus’ matchless name, we pray. Amen.
Prayer inspired by Matthew 6:33.
Here at Vine Life Faith, we pray God’s Word to experience God’s will because His words are the only ones He’s obligated to keep. While we pray inspired by a particular verse, the prayer references multiple verses as the Lord leads. You’re welcome to share this prayer and if it blesses you or someone you know—say so in the comments below. God bless you!
