Father God, I have never seen a more critical time in my business career than I have witnessed over the past few months. There seem to be more and more people facing financial hardship and little businesses are finding themselves in a position that the door on an established family businesses – that has been seen many generations come and go – are increasingly having to close the doors on business. Lord though sadness fills my heart when I witness so many people in this devastating position - whatever the reason for this economic failure - I am trusting in You and You alone…
Words fail me Father - but as I whisper this prayer to You – and I ask that You would hear my prayer… as I speak pray through a prayer that Habakkuk the prophet brought before You Lord, so many centuries ago – and yet it seem to be so relevant to the difficulties that so many are facing today…..
My heart is pounding and my lips quiver - decay creeps into my bones, and my legs trembled – at what is happening. Yet I will wait patiently for Lord. Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, YET I WILL REJOICE IN THE LORD, I WILL BE JOYFUL IN GOD MY SAVIOUR - The Sovereign Lord is my strength.
Praise Your holy name –
