Loving Lord, as the world situation seems to get worse by the day I cling to You more closely than ever before and thank You that You are in control of my life, and that nothing can separate me from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus my Lord.
Father, flood my heart with Your perfect peace that passes understanding and may I be immersed in Your joy, knowing that the joy of the Lord is my strength for today and my bright hope for tomorrow, for I know that when I am weak, then I am strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.
But Lord, I ask this not only for myself but for all those that I love and for all my brothers and sisters in Christ, many of whom are facing various difficulties and escalating dangers in these increasingly problematic times.
Thank You, that as Your children we can all cling to Your faithful promises which are new every morning. Thank You, for the joy of being in Christ. Thank You, that the joy of the Lord is our strength. In Jesus' name,
