My Vision of the Way Out-Lent 18, 2020

Prayer Focus: You’re Not Trapped

Lord Jesus, please give me eyes to see Your perspective on all life events. Yes, human sin is rampant. Yes, we are not grieved as often as we humans should be at the sin we so easily accept. Yes, evil is everywhere and it’s enough to make us feel helpless against it, like it is a riptide carrying us far from safe shores. But we praise You, Lord, that You provide the way out of the labyrinth of sin and confusion. You are our Way. May Your Holy Spirit be pleased to show us how to see this world as You see it, to guide us through when human strength and wisdom suffice, and to carry us out of fear and panic and into the hope and trust we find in You because You are faithful! You are so good and wise and loving! You are merciful and forgiving! Strengthen us with Your holy comfort, cover us with Your hands when there are things we cannot bear to witness, give us hearts to turn toward You, and when we cannot even lift our own heads to look upward because our sin and shame are so deep and dark, we humbly ask that You would lift our heads to see You and Your perfection. Remind me often that there is no fear in love, that perfect love drives out fear and love overcomes a multitude of sins. You are love. Strengthen us with that confident knowledge of our standing with You, even as we face a coming judgment in our world of sin. Bring many to repentance, Lord. Let each of us who know You be praying intently for our nation and just one who is lost, knowing the angels in heaven rejoice when even one soul comes home to You. Praying all this to You alone, our One and only God. Amen.
