“When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.” Ephesians 3:14-17 NLT
Heavenly Father, when I think of your greatness and glory, I can only look up in awe. When I am fearful or afraid I remember You, my God, the Creator of everything! Thank you for empowering me with Your Holy Spirit. When I call on you, I am renewed with wings of eagles. During these these uncertain times, one thing is certain and that is Your unfailing love for me. I find comfort in knowing that Your love and power and strength remain steadfast no matter the season or weather or circumstance; it never changes.
I pray for this world that is filled with fear. A world that is filled with hopelessness and despair. Would you use this time as an opportunity to reveal yourself to those who are afraid. Would you do a mighty work in this broken world and cause people to cry out to you and look to you for hope and shelter.
Please go before me this week Lord, empower me your Holy Spirit. Make your home in my heart and keep me strong during these times. In Jesus’ name, amen.
