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.

I have not felt the presence of the Holy Spirit in a long time. Please pray that God would make a way for me to be restored to fellowship with Him.

Please pray for my big brother, Clint. He's been in the hospital for the last 7 or 8 weeks suffering with respiratory failure. He tested negative for covid but they believe it's possibly long covid. His lungs are damaged and he struggles to breathe everyday. He is on 100 percent oxygen and has not been able to leave the bed. Even eating or talking is too much. If he doesn't heal soon, he will be put on ventilator or hospice. They said he is not a candidate for lung transplant. We, his family, are so devastated! Please pray for him! Thank you so much!

Please pray for healing of the constant ringing in my ears, nerve/burning in my face and jaw joint and stomach issues due ti the stress it causes. Been asking for this to be prayed over for awhile now and to no avail or relief. So many people have prayed but nothing has lifted and I feel ever more abandoned, forgotten and as if the Lord has turned His face away from me.
