A Prayer of Trust in our God of the heavens and earth
Dear Sovereign God:
"Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” Jeremiah 32:17.
You are the creator of this earth and our miracle worker. I’m writing this letter at a time when our entire earth is fighting a war against COVID-19 and to be honest no one has a proven clue of how to solve these issues in a timely manner. This fight can’t be handled with any political terminology, physical weapons, fancy words, financial plans, bullying or any current medical prescriptions.
God, all of our specialists and experts don’t equal Your knowledge and wisdom. You are our God and Your Word tells us that there’s nothing to hard for You. Jeremiah 32:27 tells us You said, “I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”
God, this is too hard for Your People, we can’t out run COVID-19 because it has taken all of our needed supplies, attached itself to more people than we can imagine, captivated the medical field to shake their heads in shock, snatching employment from mil-lions, putting the universe on lock down, causing every hospital filled to capacity, other buildings turned into a temporary hospital and additional situations.
God, I believe You already know ALL of this and You have probably already come down or looked down on us just as You did when the people were building the tower of Babel in Genesis 11:5-9. Some of what we are going through is because we don’t understand each other.
However, the most wonderful news is that more people are praying to You and seeking Your help. Yes God, I know, it would have been nice if they had been doing it more often and I agree! But God, I’m asking You, please forgive us and help us. Pharaoh asked the question, "Who is the LORD that I should obey him and let Israel go?
I do not know the LORD and I will not let Israel go." (Exodus 5:2).
God, we know You and we are waiting on You. Isaiah 40:31 told us, “they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” God, we are waiting on YOU!
I close this letter with the words of Your only begotten son Jesus, Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26
God Help us!
