HOW TO PRAY THE WORD OF GOD WHEN FEAR SURROUNDS ME

Lord Jesus, many are the fears that surround us.

They assault us like an army, setting themselves against us to devour our faith.

We’re haunted by pestilence, a lurking virus, debilitating to some and deadly to others.

We’re concerned for the safety of our loved ones, especially our children as they head back to school en masse.

And for those learning from home, we’re concerned about equality in their education.

We’re disturbed by the wicked hearts of men and the earth’s groaning.

We’re troubled by the economy and the alarming unemployment rate. Will we keep our jobs? Will we have healthcare should we or a family member fall sick?

All these things are against us. But You are for us.

And when our fears overwhelm us, we praise You for your faithfulness. We say like David—those who worship You lack nothing.

Because even if we see the fiercest of beasts falter in hunger and weakness, we have your repeated promise that those who seek You lack no good thing.

So as our fears surround us, we call out to You and seek You.

With everything in us we bless You, Lord. We continually keep your praise in our mouths, boasting in your goodness despite feeling troubled.

We remember that You are over all things and subject to no created thing.

Greater are You in us than he who is in the world.

And while we confidently wait for You to deliver us from all our fears, we’re grateful.

We’re grateful You’re faithful to strengthen us where we’re weak and to protect us, even from the evil one—the source of all fear.

And for this and so much more, we give You all the glory. We have tasted and seen that You are good, blessed for trusting in You.

It’s in your faithful name, Jesus, we pray. Amen.

HOW TO PRAY THE WORD OF GOD WHEN YOUR WORLD IS SHAKEN UP

Father, this earth shakes violently all around us.

The earth quakes, waiting for the revealing of the sons of God.

Every system put in place by man’s greed is crumbling under the weight of the enemy’s assault.

And anyone who’s ignored your Son’s invitation to real life, eternal life, shakes in horror.

Because the shaking is removing everything that can be shaken so that what cannot be shaken—will remain.

And we who are receiving the Kingdom that will never be shaken, rejoice.

We also pray, because the signs reveal the coming of Christ in all His glory and You desire that none should perish.

So, Father, we pray that everyone who doesn’t have a relationship with You, chooses this day who they will serve: the failing gods of this world or the God who never fails.

We pray they choose life, realizing that if not for your Grace, we too would perish.

We rejoice in the peace that comes with faith in Christ. And we rejoice in our relationship with You.

And we rejoice because since You cannot be shaken, neither can we!

Hallelujah to Jesus!

We give Him all the honor and glory for His grace and the wonderful things He has done for your children. And we pray this all in His holy name. Amen.
