Lord, I trust that you will take care of my family. Around the world, many people are struggling to make ends meet, and I admit to being afraid sometimes that those I love will not be taken care of. Help me not to lose hope during times of uncertainty, but to remember that you are Creator and Provider, worthy of all my trust. Help me to take to heart the psalmist’s encouragement: “When I am afraid, in you I place my trust. God, I praise your promise; in you I trust, I do not fear” (Psalm 56:4-5).
Lord, I entrust my health to you as well as the health of those near to me. Medicine has made many advances, and I am grateful for them. But help me to rely on you as well. Many still suffer from disease, and while you didn’t promise that we would be free from all sickness, you did promise that you would be with us always. When I feel alone and in pain, I will lift my eyes to heaven, because “my help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth” (Psalm 121:2).
Lord, I trust that nothing can separate me from your love—not trouble or hardship, not persecution or famine, not terrorism or evil or the spiritual forces of darkness. Help me to trust in your power. Help me to put on the full armor of God: truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, and the word of God. (wau.org)
