Here is a thoughtful prayer for such a time as this…
Lord, we pray that You would manifest Your presence right now. Make Your face, Your hands, Your will and Your love known in personal, specific and powerful ways today. Infuse us with Your clarity of thought, Your focus of energy, Your satisfying rest and Your inspired motivation. You have slowed down not only our lives but the whole world. Your purpose, Your plan, Your ways are good! The pause button that we’re experiencing now, You are using for renewal – we see it in Your creation as China sees blue sky for the first time in years because the pollution has decreased with the shutdown. Dolphins are coming into Venice again because the waterways are clean and clear with boat traffic stopped. Your Creation is catching its breath and being renewed! Lord, may it be the same in our individual lives at this time!
Whether we are fearful for our own wellbeing or that of loved ones, or we face financial hardship, emotional stress and depression, anxiety, and fear of the unknown, meet each of us right where we are today. Reveal more of Yourself as our Healer, Comforter, Provider, and Hope. We ask this in
Jesus name. Amen.
You are our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. Psalm 46:1
