How's Your Thought Life Right Now?

What we think about matters. Especially now, during the coronavirus crazy. Our thought life can always be improved, but it’s especially necessary in uncertain times. Let’s not allow our thoughts to go in the wrong direction. Let’s ask the Lord to give us grace to change our thoughts.

Lord,

I want my thoughts to be pleasing to you, to honor You and to encourage myself and not tear myself (or others) down. Help me not to give in to fear, panic, or despair. Help me to trust You. And help me to deliberately choose to think on things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy. Please nudge me when my thoughts don’t like up with Your Word and give me grace to think life-giving thoughts. Help me to grow and change in the area of my thought life. Thank you for helping me to change my thoughts by focusing on these things, Lord. In the wonderful name of Jesus, Amen.

Prayer for a Calm Heart During Coronavirus


Lord,

You are sovereign over everything. You are gracious and kind and good, even in a pandemic. You are our rock, our fortress, and our defense. Your power is limitless, and You love us with an everlasting love. Will You help us to remember these truths? May they anchor and calm our hearts.

Help us to be wise and courageous. Help us to do our parts to prepare in the way(s) that You lead us without panic. Help us to be informed but not obsessed. May we choose to focus more on Your Word than the news. May we praise more than worry. May we remain close to You, dwelling in the shelter of the Most High God, knowing You will give us grace for every situation, and that You are always with us and that YOU ARE OUR PROVIDER.

Please cover and protect us. Help us not to allow our hearts to be troubled. Help us not to permit ourselves to be agitated and disturbed and fearful. May we choose to trust You as we face the unusual and the unknown. JESUS, You are the Prince of Peace. Help us to remain near You and walk continually in Your peace, being ambassadors of Peace to those around us. Fill is with Your JOY, Your PEACE, and great HOPE. In the awesome name of Jesus, Amen.


“Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]” (John 14:27) (AMPC)

A Prayer to Trust God When It's Hard

Lord,

You are my strength and shield. May my heart completely trust You, even when things don't make sense. Even when things hurt. Even when it's hard. You are greater than every situation I am facing. You are faithful. You are all powerful. Help me to consistently TRUST You so that my heart is lifted and songs of praise bubble out of me. You are my always available, always present, always my ever-present help, Lord, and I will praise you! In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.
