Prayer for Friday
Dear Father in Heaven, in the world we can be full of fear and doubt with all that is going on around us, but in you we have peace and even joy. We pray that Your Holy Spirit may continue to give us the joy of Your Heavenly Kingdom in our hearts and the strength to live steadfastly and faithfully in Your service. Remember those who suffer pain and loss, who still have to walk paths filled with fear and distress. Grant them help, to the glory of Your name. Lead them into the truth that fear and distress does not come from You, but power, love and a sound mind as Your Word rightfully proclaims. May we be united in hope and in expectation of what You will give through Your great goodness and faithfulness. We seek You and we intercede for others for the sake of Your glory and in the name of our only Beloved Redeemer, Jesus Christ!
