Lord God, life is hard and uncertain, but we know that You are in control and that nothing is impossible for You. Thank You for promising to never leave or forsake us. And thank You for promising to complete the good work that You started within us. Nothing we go through ever surprises You. Please give us Your strength so that we can endure the situations we can’t control. Help us to trust You when we don’t understand. Fill us with the confident hope that You will see us through life’s storms, even if You don’t immediately rescue us from them. God, You have said, “Seek my face.” And we are seeking Your face, God. We want to worship You, Jesus. Please answer us quickly as we call to You. Heal our land, and fill us with Your peace. In Jesus’ name.
