Heavenly Father, as I read the newspapers and watch the breaking news headlines on the TV screen, I recognise that troublesome times are here, and men’s hearts are failing for fear of what is taking place in the world.
Lord, I know that unless my hope is in You, I too will find that worldwide events that are currently taking place will cause me to faint from fear. Keep my heart fixed on You I pray, and keep me looking to You each moment of the day and help me to trust implicitly in Your Word.
Overshadow me and all those I love with Your love and grace, and draw each one of us into an ever deepening relationship with Yourself and a ever deepening desire to know You more and to serve You better with each passing day. This I ask in the precious name of Jesus,
