A call to trust, even when we don’t understand 

In this week’s prayers, Jill Gower invites us to look to the Word of God as the source of all truth, and to trust that He is able to carry us through.

Truth of God’s word
“Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.” – John 17:17
We thank You, Sovereign Lord, that Your word goes forth from You and it will never return void. We pray for the Word of God to go forth in our nation, dividing soul and spirit. We pray for the Word of God to be held up as the ultimate authority. 
We pray for God’s living word to be respected and adhered to. We prophecy that Your word will cut through and achieve all that it is destined to do.
We bless every aspect of life to be centred on the Word of God, and for Your word to be honoured. 
We bless the people of the United Kingdom with fresh revelation of the power of Your Word. We thank You that every word of God is true, and we call forth truth to break through and for lies to be exposed. 
In this time when churches have been shut, we thank you that nothing can stop Your word going forth and we bless You, Lord, for all those who have hungered for truth, and for answers from You at this time. 
May those who seek You find You.  
In the Name of Jesus. Amen
Blessed are You, O Lord our God, sovereign of the world, for you created all things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities, all things were created by You and for You. Thank You, Jesus, that You are before all things and in You all things hold together. 
Even when we don’t understand, when things seem difficult and when everything is changing, You remain our Rock, our present help in time of need. Thank You, Lord, we do not have to fear the terror of night nor the pestilence or plague when we make You our dwelling. For You cover us with Your wings, and Your faithfulness will be our shield and rampart.
Deliver us from evil, and fill us afresh with hope, and creativity to walk through the doors that are opening and not to focus on those that are shut. 
May we put our trust and hope in our Lord and Saviour who is more than able to carry us through, and to do far more than we can hope or imagine.
Merciful Father, give us Your peace.
