Philippians 4:13 I can endure all these things through the power of the one who gives me strength.
Morning Prayer: God, I wake to this reassuring scripture. It seems like there has been a lot to endure. There are so many challenges for everyone, especially at this time for families with school age children, college students facing an uncertain year and teachers learning new methods to reach and teach their students. Sometimes it becomes overwhelming. It is at those moments of feeling overwhelmed that I must remind myself that I am not in this alone. You are with me always. Your strength becomes evident through the help of friends and family or the kind words of strangers. As I draw on You for my own strength to face the uncertainties of life, help me also to be Your strength to others who are struggling, especially those on the margins who have limited resources. Remind me to stop when I feel overwhelmed and sit with You and be reassured that I can get through this. May it be so.
Morning Focus: I remind myself that in the midst of the many challenges I face, God is with me.
