Dear Heavenly Father, as we face suffering in this life, guide us to place our trust in You. As we approach Easter, help us to remember the ultimate suffering of Your Son and the gift we have received through His life, death, and resurrection. Through trials, bless us with the peace that transcends all understanding.

My Father and my God, I am too often beset by worry. You told us specifically not to worry. You reminded us that all of nature is under Your control. If You show such care for flowers, trees, birds, and the animal kingdom; how much more will You care for us. Please give my soul peace, quicken my spirit to focus on You and Your love for me, and away from whatever troubles me.

Dear Lord, In this season of Lent, help us to take the time to quiet our minds so that we may hear You and quiet our hearts so we may feel Your presence. If we are at a difficult place in our lives and can't seem to hear or feel Your presence, help us just to remember You are always with us. In Jesus' name. Amen

Dear Father in heaven. I know that out of fear, I shy away from identifying with You. I know the world around me needs to see Christ. Give me the words and the strength to answer those who want to know about You. Give me comfort in knowing that You have prepared these encounters and will speak through me. “All I know is that I was blind and now I see”

Lord, help us to be of open and clean mind and to be unattached and vulnerable to Your will. Give us meditative thoughts to help us to be this way. Take us to a place where we will have Your hope and not our own.
