Watch us Live Now

Quiet Our Souls While You Work

With all we are facing in our homes, in our nation and in the world right now, it can be overwhelming. We are tired of the pandemic and all the other unrest and chaos around us. What we could depend on in the past is now just shaky ground. But praise God, we know the all powerful King who is not moved and cannot be shaken. All we need to do is quiet our souls, have faith and trust in Him, and watch Him restore peace and do His works. Come pray this prayer with us this week as we strive forward. Still your souls and let the Lord renew your strength.

The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come, behold the works of the Lord, how he has brought desolations on the earth. He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the chariots with fire. “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
— PSALM 46:6-11 (ESV)

THE PRAYER

Lord, we live in a time like the one described by the Psalmist above. Nations are raging. Kingdoms are tottering. Many things—on which the world has depended—seem to be melting away. Yet, we confess You are with us. No matter how the governments of our nations and communities are shaken, our souls are fortified by the fact we have a King and Kingdom which cannot be shaken. We take comfort from the knowledge You have the power to make wars cease. With this same power, You can end the pandemic, heal our fractured nations, and revive our economies. Nothing is too difficult for You!

Heavenly Father, as we come before Your throne today, our weary souls have been renewed and strengthened by the reality of Your power and might. In the name of Your precious Son, Jesus, heal our divided nations, halt the pandemic, and help our economies to recover. We ask You to fortify the hearts of Your children around the world who are suffering because of persecution and economic deprivation.

In the midst of the pandemonium and chaos around us, help us to be still and quiet on the inside. Our faith in Your promise to be exalted in the nations will grow strong in the place of peace. You are with us! That is the ultimate antidote to the rising tide of anxiety and despondency washing over our world.

Jesus, we quiet our souls in Your presence today. From this place of peace, we ask You to exalt Your name in the nations through an outpouring of the Spirit. Revive Your church and bring salvation to millions of precious souls. As our fortress, drive back the tide of darkness overwhelming our world. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
