Right now mere survival is challenging, Father. I thank you for being the God of provision. My family is in need, Lord, and my children are starting to have fears about the future. We never expected to be in this position. We don’t know if we will ever be in fulltime ministry again, and yet we need to take care of bills and provide for the children.
Thank you, Lord for your promise to never leave us or forsake us. Thank you for always taking care of us in the past, and seeing us through every trial and test in the past. Now we call out to you in our time of need and ask and thank you for your future provision. You are our source of all good things. You are the source of our blessings, and we give you all praise for this. We now give you every worry and fear we have regarding the future, and we take up your peace and provision. We love you, Lord. We trust you completely.
Praying the Scriptures . . .
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? (Matt. 6:25-29 NIV)
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matt. 6:34 NIV)
God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. (1 Cor. 10:13 NIV)
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. (Matt.11:28-30 NIV)
