Father God, we thank You that You have promised to be with us no matter what difficult circumstances invade our lives and we lift up our many brothers and sisters in Christ who are facing increasingly hard times. We are 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, we ask for Your strength and courage to face whatever lies ahead, knowing that the suffering 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.
Lord, give me the purity, integrity and focus to be the kind of vessel You would desire.
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.
