Psalm 23:4 says, “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”Having faith in the darkest valley— during a global pandemic, for example—is bold. It’s natural to feel fearful right
now, but believers can have a bold faith and hope during a crisis because of who our God is.

He is never changing, even when our world does. (Malachi 3:6)

He is all-powerful, strong and able to do anything He wills. (Psalm 147:5, Romans 1:20)

He is all-knowing, having knowledge of everything past, present, and future. (Isaiah 46:9–10)

He is faithful and always will be. (2 Timothy 2:13)
 
And He is so much more. He is beyondwhat we can conceive in our limited human minds. His purposes and
promises are sure, even when we don’t understand them. Even when we aren’t sure where He is or what He’s doing.

As Charles Spurgeon said:
“God is too good to be unkind and He is too wise to be mistaken. And when we cannot trace His hand, we must trust His heart.”
 
Again, trusting God and having faith during a pandemic is a bold stance. But do you know what else is bold? Coming
before the Almighty God of the universe in prayer.
Hebrews 4:16 instructs us: “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain
mercy and find grace in the time of need.”

Come boldly to the God who is unchanging, always faithful, and never
caught by surprise. Keep your faith in Him and let the knowledge of who He is calm your fears.
Forward this to someone who needs encouragement for today.

The prayer request is for my Dad. He has been in the hospital for 10 days. Found out he had congestive heart failure, kidneys failing, had stents placed, went into cardiac arrest 2 days in a row so got a defibrillator placed. Numbers were improving but he is very confused and not acting like himself. He pulled out ivs, oxygen picc line and ng tube. He is also acting out and refusing to take medication which is not like him at all. Please pray for his mood to shift and brain to start operating as before. Thanks so much

I am a newly rededicated Christian man who is in need of prayer. I quit using drugs when I made a decision to serve Christ. I have an angry drug dealer that is trying to destroy my life and my wife and I are scared. Would you please pray for the protection of my family and home as well as the salvation of this angry lost soul who is obviously spiritually ill and suffering. I truly believe that God is bigger and greater than any giant the evil one places in front of me. With prayer and faith God will crush this evil. Thank you for praying for us. GOD BLESS YOU!

I have been framed in a very damaging way at work, although I have done absolutely nothing wrong. Certain people are trying destroy my reputation and get rid of me. Pray that I will be completely exonerated. Pray that the Lord will completely clear my name and my reputation. That I will be vindicated and honored in the eyes of the leadership; because the slander has spread, pray that my name and reputation will be completely clean and honored in the eyes of every employee at work. No reprimands, no write-ups against me, nothing but a clean slate! Pray that I shine bright with the pure light of Jesus, and have great success at work. Thanks for all your prayers!

Please pray that MR & DF come back together, and MR realizes how much DF in Malden loves him and would go above and beyond to give him the best life possible, not the "poly" life he's in now.
