Dear God,

While some question, while some wonder, while some doubt,

Help me to hold fast.

While some may turn away, while some may retreat, while some may leave you,

Help me to cling to you.

While some hate you, while some despise you, while some will give up on you,

Help me to love you more.

While some look for signs, while some look for imperical evidence, while some look to put their hands in the nail marks,

Help me to trust without sight.

Amen

Lord,

These are strange times. Times where we are called into action to do nothing. Times where we are called to be a body of believers who cannot be together. Times where the present is the most uncertain part of our future. These are strange times.

Where is the rock? Where is the steady ground to put our feet? Where is the unshakable foundation that we build our lives on, especially in these strange times? Where are You to be found, my God?

You are closer than our very breath. You are near to the broken and heavy-hearted. You see those that are hurt and in need. You are here.

In the midst of the madness, in the whirlwind of chaos, in these strange times, Lord, remind us that we are not alone. You are with us, even now.

Praise your name.

Amen.

Help us to see that. Continue reading “Weekly Prayer: March 15th, 2020”

God…

This year has not started out great.

This year has not started out the way everyone talked. How 2020 was going to be such a big year, a year that was so much better than 2019, a year that would see the best side of us blossom and flourish and change the world.

God, this year has started out like garbage. Continue reading “Weekly Prayer: January 26th, 2020”
