Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
God our Father, we submissively honor and glorify, thank and worship you, for entrenching into our hearts and souls, the presence and power of your Holy Spirit. It is faith in the Name of Jesus that causes us to be more than strong, sturdy conquerors in life. There are those who falsely and foolishly put their faith in man, only to experience hurt and sore disappointment. A man’s harvest in life is based solely, on the seed that he has sown, and on what kind of earth and soil he has chosen to sow such seed.
God, you have blessed us with authority to sow the seed of faith securely, in our hearts and in the hearts of those around us, by sound application, dedication and continued infusion, by example of our Christlike behavior. The Bible tells us to plant our faith as a seed of strength and sustenance, based on which it is possible to get plantations of plenty. Jesus has assured us that faith, even as a grain of mustard seed, can move mountains, if deeply rooted in your Holy Word, whereby nothing shall be difficult or impossible, for faith in Scripture holds with it the ultimate source of power.
Lord, we need such staunch, stable, deep faith imprinted in our hearts, as we strive to plough through life in the midst of this present day, devastating and devouring pandemic, infiltrating every family, unsettling us with the horrible truth and realisation that man is totally helpless in eradicating it. We need to rely on your mercy, power, and loving intervention to deliver, restore and rehabilitate us all. Faith is the element assuring success. We humbly and fervently implore your aid and consolation, in Jesus’ Name, with abundant faith in his promise that all we ask, in his name, you will surely and undoubtedly grant us. Amen
