Dear God, I’m trying to comprehend the sadness, fear and destruction in the news these past few weeks. It’s overwhelming when I think about the people who are hurting. What can I do in the midst of so much suffering? The only answer I have is the promise I find in Your Word:
I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world. - John 16:33
Thank You, that in the midst of fear, despair and suffering, You promise to be our Peace. I pray for those who need to know they’re not alone, for those who need to feel hope, and for those whose hearts are filled with fear and doubt. Show up in a big and powerful way for them today, God. Wrap them in tightly and completely in Your peace.
