Father, we pray that You would be very close to all our brothers and sisters in Christ in these troublesome times, which are causing so many hearts to fail within, for fear of what is coming on the world.
Thank You, that no matter how far apart we may be, we are all part of Your family and all have been redeemed by the blood of Christ and made eternally secure in Him. We ask that Your perfect peace would flood into each troubled heart, and that they may be prompted to turn to Jesus as their ever-present help in time of trouble, so that they may not to be overwhelmed by the trials and tribulations that they are facing.
Turn the trials and difficulties of each one into a time when they discover a deeper intimacy with You, so that each heart may be flooded with Your perfect peace. Your beautiful peace, which is beyond our comprehension, but which is promised to all, who by prayer and supplication look to Jesus, and make their requests known to Him. May each one confidently cast all their cares upon Him, knowing that He cares for each one of his own.
Encourage and strengthen all Your blood-bought children and may they find a deep assurance in Your precious promises, no matter what fiery trials they may be facing today. May they embrace their trials knowing that the extent to which they are called to partake of Christ’s sufferings is a measure of the exceeding great joy that is set before them in heavenly places. In Jesus' name we pray,
