Confidence in Chaos
“I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” Psalm 16:8 NIV
Heavenly Father… Our Creator God,
We honor and glorify you for there is none like you Lord You are a mighty and powerful God and worthy of all our praises As we approach Your throne of grace, we are grateful that you care about our concerns This world and the people you created need you.
Father, We have lost our way We are experiencing life unlike anything we have ever seen a desperate world in chaos and turmoil a distraught people striving to deal with the impossible evils running freely throughout our society a people who are worried and living with anxieties and fears.
Surely, God, you are the sustainer of life, so we cry out to you Your Word says, “It is the LORD who goes before you He will be with you he will not leave or forsake you Do not fear or be dismayed Deuteronomy 31 8 ESV We thank you for loving and keeping us as we walk through the valley of the shadow of death This walk is heavy on our hearts and painful to our souls Yet we know we are not walking alone.
Therefore, we will not be shaken in the valley of COVID 19 we will not be shaken in the valley of hatred we will not be shaken in the valley of addictions we will not be shaken in the valley of injustice In every situation, with confidence, we will not be shaken for you are our refuge, our covering and our protection.
Please bring peace and reconciliation to our world Strengthen us and equip us to firmly stand on your promises May your peace consume our hearts in the midst of our trials. May your Spirit remind us of the good in our lives.
This we pray in Jesus’ Holy Name, Amen.
