A Prayer: Over Time… & the Times

Remind me that you are with me in all moments in between.

Creator of Time,

You uphold all things seen & unseen – with Your Hands & with Your Word.

You were with me in all moments before this present one…

Your Presence is now present...

and you are with me in the unfolding of every future moment.

As I heal from everything that is behind me, You hold me.

As I plant my feet firmly in this present moment, You accompany me.

As I dream about the future, my anxieties can ease because You are already there.

Deuteronomy 31:8

“It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

The world around us may be swirling & unstable, creating curiosity & confusion…

But I know that both clarity & comfort come from You, Lord.

Stability & solace come from You, Lord.

Strength to keep going, and solutions for all the problems

that seemingly keep growing, come from You, Lord.

You give peace for today. You give promise for tomorrow.

You give healing for my pain. You can bring joy from my sorrows.

Psalm 90:12

“So teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”

The disrupted peace of the world cannot interrupt the plans you have for me.

Plans to prosper me, not plans to harm me.

Plans to give me hope, and a future. (Jer. 29:11)

Alpha & Omega…

Begin & the End…

Remind me that you are with me in all moments in between.

You are the God who holds it all together, and I choose to trust you, today.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
