A Prayer to Trust that God Goes Before You

Thank you, Lord, that you have been sending us your promises from the very beginning of time. Thank you for your faithfulness, as you give the definition of faithful a true meaning. You have never and will never break a promise. Time and time again throughout all Scripture, you promise to lead us and guide us, to never leave us, nor forsake us. Thank you that you have already paved a way and wherever we are sitting in this very moment, you are near us and one step ahead of us. 

Whatever we are facing, Lord, we can trust that you know what’s next and are protecting us along the way. We ask that in those moments where doubt creeps in, that you would remind of us today’s verse. When fear creeps in of what is going to happen, remind us that you are in total control and that you have already gone before us, you’ll be with us during it, and you’ll go behind us. Thank you that you are trustworthy for these beautiful promises to help navigate us through this life. 

In your mighty name we pray,  Amen - Alisha Headley
