For The New Week


What We Really Need for a New Week

Life is hard sometimes--
crazy, mixed up, messed up.
There we are in the middle of it all.
You know what it's like, Lord.
So we ask for your help this week...

When we face fear, give us courage
For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, "Do not fear; I will help you." Isaiah 41:13

When we feel stress, give us peace.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

When we falter, give us strength.
I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
Thank you for promising in anything we face, you'll give us everything we need. Amen.
