Father God, thank You that You have promised to be with me no matter what difficult circumstances invade my life. I lift up my many brothers and sisters in Christ who are facing increasingly hard times. We are all watching and waiting for the soon return of our Lord Jesus Christ and join with the Spirit in praying, "Come Lord Jesus." In these increasingly difficult times, I ask for Your strength and courage to face whatever lies ahead, knowing that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us... and that nothing can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus. AMEN.
Loving Father I come to You in humility of heart and ask that You make and mould me into a vessel that is pleasing to You - for Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of Israel's faithful little remnant who continued to trust You in spite of all the suffering and pain they endured. Keep me from being discouraged by all that is happening in my life and the wider world, and may I continue to trust You in all things - knowing that Your plans and purposes are perfect and that Your promises are all 'yes' and 'amen' in Christ Jesus our Lord, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
