God is in Control
Know that you can come to God as you are. Use your own words to ask for help, ask for guidance even if you’re angry with Him. He still loves you. He is waiting for you to talk to Him from the depths of your heart and needs.
Here is a structured prayer for those who believe God is not listening, don’t feel comfortable in speaking until you become more comfortable in talking to the Lord. The goal is for you to feel comfortable in talking to the Lord. Know that God is not a man that He should lie.
Prayer against isolation and fear
Protect us, Oh God, from the fear and isolation we face as familiar American institutions begin shutting down in an effort to protect us from this worldwide disease. It is often in moments like this that we find comfort in being with one another and, yet, many of those options are being temporarily removed. In their place, Lord, help us to seek your face. Help us to model Christ, who often retreated to quiet spaces to seek solace and intercede on behalf of others. Give us insight into ways we can celebrate community from a distance. Help us to pray for our neighbors, co-workers—and even our enemies. Show us how to best make use of these unexpected “time outs.”
We put you in memorance of Your word knowing you can’t lie but must honor what You have said in Isaiah 41:13: “For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” We trust You and consider the matter done because our faith is in You.
