Jesus, thank you that amidst this tragedy your grace is SUFFICIENT. That even when we feel afflicted, weak, afraid, and vulnerable – that your power is made PERFECT – Meaning lacking nothing – in our weakness (2 Cor 12:9).
I pray the faith and knowledge of your strength would help us to see and wholeheartedly believe that you are not a God of disorder, but a God of PEACE (1 Cor 14:33).
Lord, you said, "let light shine out of darkness," (2 Cor 4:6) I pray this promise becomes evident as we stand firm knowing "the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed in victory." (1 Cor 15: 54 & 58) You conquer all, and through you we have this same power (Rom 8:37).
Jesus, thank you that your purposes stand and that because of your great love we will not be consumed. (Lam 3:22) Open our eyes to the light in the darkness and let our trust and hope rest in you – the one and only holy divine comforter, redeemer, healer, peace, restorer, truth, stronghold, and hope itself.
