God, You are worthy and holy able. Minister in power to the heart of Your treasured servant. Enable my anxiety to be totally squashed beneath the enormity of the faith that I have in You. Father, draw me near to You in the fires of adversity so that I am shielded from the burns of affliction and the smoke of deceit. Mold me through affliction. Shape me through trouble. Open my eyes to view the terrain of hope that leads to my eternal home in Christ. Lead me to devotedly walk in the direction of home with joy in my steps and divine love in my heart that eclipses all of earth’s sorrows. Under the Word of Job 5:6 and the authority of Christ, these prayers are my humble offering.
For affliction does not come from the dust,
nor does trouble sprout from the ground
Job 5:6, ESV
