Loving heavenly Father, it seems that more and more people are becoming increasingly anxious about what is going on in the world today and what is likely to happen, both within our own nations and further afield. There are may conspiracy theories on one hand and a lot of hype on the other, which seem deliberately designed to cause people to become anxious and afraid.
I know that You are not a God of disorder or fear but a God of peace and love but I also know that the Bible tells us that as we get closer to the return of the Lord Jesus for His church, men’s hearts will start to fail, for fear of what is coming on the earth.
Lord Jesus, I am Your child and I know that my strength and comfort is in You. I know that You will never leave me nor forsake me, no matter what happens in this world. Keep me I pray from anxious thoughts, and prevent my heart from fearing what is coming on the world, knowing that my citizenship is in heaven with You - and knowing that the day is fast approaching when You will come to take us to be with Yourself in our heavenly home - where we will be with You forever.
Thank You for this assurance I have in Christ Jesus my Saviour,
“For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart, wherein he hath laboured under the sun?”
