You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head (Psalm 139:5)
Oh God, who is all powerful, all knowing, all mighty. The God who wrote the story of the world before it even began. We submit to you. We submit our sight to you. We submit our hearts to you. As the world tries to pull us into panic and fear, I pray that our ears hear you. I pray our hearts feel you here. That we are reminded of your presence. Reminded that you know all, see all. You know the beginning from the end. You are not afraid. You are not moved by the world. Nothing can separate us from you or your love. Even here you still love us. Even when we don’t understand, you still love us. God hear our cries, see our confusion, and surround us with your comfort. Give us your peace. Pour out your healing oh God. This is the prayer of your people. The prayer of your daughter. I will not remove my eyes from you. I will not be distracted from your goodness, your power, your might, your love. Anoint your people to be light amidst the darkness. Speak truth in the midst of deceit. Pour out your Spirit oh God. In the name of your son Jesus I pray, Amen.
