A Prayer in a Time of Trouble

Dear God,

we come to you

in a time of trouble.

Sometimes we want to close our eyes,

un-see and un-hear everything.

“Say it ain’t so,” keeps ringing

within,

sometimes expressed aloud.

 

But it is so.

We are hurting.

The world is filled with trouble

that we can no longer

ignore

and so we come to you in

a time of trouble,

asking you for strength for

us, for our families,

for others

and especially for your people

persecuted in distant lands.

 

It is so,

this time of trouble.

Would we could wish it away,

pray it away like a magic wand

but we can’t for

people do not seek you

or the life and love that you offer,

will not surrender to you.

They turn from you

into themselves,

doubling down on the evil within

expressed outside.

Love is distorted and ultimately lost.

 

Help us, dear Lord.

Show us how to live

in this time of trouble.

 

Remember to seek God and keep calm and pray for wisdom, strength, and life:
