Loving God, Thank you for hearing our prayers in this moment, trusting that where two or more are gathered in your name, and through the blessings of technology, You are among us.
Father God, today we pray for those feeling lost and alone. No matter what we are feeling on the inside, no matter what's happening around us, no matter how hopeless or lost we may feel ...
we are not alone.
Lord, we trust your certainty in uncertain times.
So please calm our hearts, give us deep breaths and clear thoughts. When we start to worry, remind us of your word. When we start to question, show us answers and the will to keep moving forward, even if we feel at a standstill.
Bring us light when we are in darkness and a path to follow when we feel like we are wandering in circles. When doors close in front of us, give us new ones to open.
When people walk away, give us courage to seek out relationships that both build us, and honor You.
We pray in the precious name of Jesus the Christ.
