HAGGAI 2:5 (MSG)
I’m living and breathing among you right now. Don’t be timid. Don’t hold back.
JOHN 16:33 (CEV)
Jesus: "While you are in the world, you will have to suffer. But cheer up! I have defeated the world."
What are you being timid about these days? What is God saying to you about that situation?
Glorious God, you've shared your glory with us through your presence. I know that I shouldn't let the problems of the world drag me down, but I do. As I walk with Christ, cheer me up and restore my confidence in your outcomes. You've gotten me to this point in life and I'm going to trust you to walk me through the rest of it. I'm not going to be timid. Amen.
Our Father in Heaven,
we hold your name in the highest regard.
Please come and establish your reign here on earth
so that everything that happens here will align
with what is happening in heaven.
and we’ll forgive those who have wronged us.
Shield us from the trials and temptations that come our way.
Lastly, we pray that you would protect us from all forms of evil. Amen.
