In the midst of the chaos, Jesus, You are my calm. In the midst of adversity, You are my refuge. Let me run to You in times of trouble. Let me trust in You in times of uncertainty. I place the totality of my times into Your hands. Rip the veil off of my eyes, Lord, so that I can see from heaven’s perspective as I look upon the troubles in this world. Lift the heavy weight of despair that eclipses the hope You have given me. You are working all things together for good. You are sovereign. There is no calamity that You are not aware of. There is no wound festering in my heart that You are incapable of healing. Let me not resist Your love. Let me not be tripped up by the enemy as he tempts me to give up on this world. Use me, Lord, as Your vessel of light. I may only be a candle in the dark, but the flame You have lit within me is eternal and cannot be snuffed out. Let me shine for Your glory, Jesus. Under the Word of Isaiah 60:1-2 and the authority of Christ, I offer these prayers.
“Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come,
And the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you.
“For in fact, darkness will cover the earth
And deep darkness will cover the peoples;
But the Lord will rise upon you [Jerusalem]
And His glory and brilliance will be seen on you.”
Isaiah 60:1-2, AMP
