Dear Heavenly Father, help us to not live in fear of the future. Help us to remember Your words that You go before us, and You go with us. There is so much to be scared of today in the news and the Internet, but You, Father, are greater than all. Walk with us as we step into the future and give us hope. Walk with our leaders and give them wisdom. And walk with our children and let them grow in strength and knowledge of You. In Jesus' name, amen.
As you pray, meditate on these words from Joshua 1:8-9
. "Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
