Comforting Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, thank you that during this time of uncertainty in the world caused by the coronavirus, I can be comforted by Your Word in the Bible. I ask that as I read the following Scriptures, You will direct me to internalize these verses and get my thoughts and focus off of the many problems and back on You.
Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”
Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
Philippians 4:6-7 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
1 Peter 5:6-7 “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”
2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind.”
Psalm 32:7 “You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.”
Psalm 33:18-22 “Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His mercy, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name. Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, just as we hope in You.”
Psalm 4:8 “I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.“
I ask that You will protect and direct all those who are working on solving the many issues associated with the coronavirus, especially the President, Vice President and all other national government officials. Guide and give wisdom to the state governors and all their officials, the medical professionals and caregivers, as well as those helping out in the business community. Please intervene through all these workers with a divine solution.
In Jesus’ Name, thank you for the transformational power of Your Word. Amen.
