Loving Lord, You are the One that gives the swallow its nest and paints the wayside flowers with such vibrant colours, and I know that if You care so lovingly for the birds of the air and the flowers of the field, how much more is Your loving-kindness poured out on each of Your children.
Lord, I know this truth and I trust Your Word of truth, but I also know that we who are Your children are to live by faith just like the birds and the flowers, without striving to do everything ourselves, but rather trusting Your provision.
Oh Lord, we are facing many difficulties in these hard times. I know that so many others families are also finding it hard to make ends meet, and at times it is hard to trust You to provide for all our needs. But Lord, please calm my worried thoughts and help me to rest all my family needs in You.
Thank You, Lord, for the way that You have provided all our needs in the past, and give me the grace to lay all my burdens at Your feet, knowing that we are much more precious to You than the birds of the air and the flowers of the field.
Let me trust in You and not be afraid in these hard times. In Jesus' name I pray,
