Prayers for those who need Reassurance
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.” (Psalm 136: 1)
The Bible never wavers in reminding us of this wonderful truth: God is good. Not “will be” or “has been” but “is”. He is good when we can feel His goodness; and He is still good when we can’t. He is good when we are surrounded by the love and kindness of family and friends; and He remains good when we are lost in grief and loneliness. Whether we are dancing on a cloud or crying into our hands, the character of God never changes.
Our circumstances vary wildly during the course of our lives; but our God always remains the same. His love never fades like ours does. He never goes off us or grows tired with our affections. He will never become bored of ourcompany. Neither will He ever be unfaithful to us. He is solid. He can be trusted. He will never fail you, forsake you or give up on you.
No matter what you are going through today, remember that it has all been filtered through the caring hands of our good, loving Father in heaven. And take heart; His love endures forever. He is good.
Heavenly Father, gather me, Your precious child, close to You at this strange and isolating time. Living with less accountability and structure, the days can slip away with less meaning; with less devoted attention to Your goodness and Your Word. May Your Spirit, who gives me love, power and self-discipline, help me seek Your face each day and know the joy of Your glorious presence. May I find new and unexpected blessings in this trial as I make time to rest with You and draw closer to You in ways I never anticipated. To Your praise and glory, Amen.
Lord God, our almighty King and Saviour, how awesome are Your works. Even when we cannot see Your hand, we know You are at work on our behalf. You answer our prayers in righteousness and in Your perfect way and timing. Reassure us of Your love and presence. Remind us that our every breath is Your gift to us; and that Your eyes are always on us. Thank You for Your love and Your grace. How could we ever live without You? Be our Rock today, we ask. To Your glory, Amen.
O Lord, how I need You! You are my help and my deliverer, my Rock on whom I stand. Show me again the joy of Your salvation, the freedom of Your forgiveness, the strength of Your grace, the rest of Your unending love for me. I run into Your arms again, Father, just to be held by the One who will never leave me or forsake me. You are my hope and joy and strength. Praise Your name, O Lord! Amen.
