Loving and eternal Father, how we need You every minute of the day.. especially in times of trouble and moments of despair - but You are the God of all hope and our heavenly Comforter, and I pray that You would fill me with Your joy and peace in believing, which is the right of all Your children. I pray that my hope and trust in You may abound and multiply by the power of the Holy Spirit, dwelling in me.
I pray for Your blessing, protection and encouragement in this increasingly harsh and cruel world.. and that Your comforting presence and perfect peace would replace any moments of despair, when my spirit is faint; my soul is downcast and imaginations of my mind start to overtake my rational thinking.
Guard and protect my mind I pray and may I learn to take every thought captive to Christ, so that I may rise above my problems and pain of life.. rather than dwelling on the difficulties, dangers and challenges of life. Thank You Father that You are the One Who goes before me and has promised that You will never leave me nor forsake Me. Help me to look to Jesus and rest in Him.. so that I will not be dismayed.. in Whose name I pray…
