Holy God, Thank you for being with me when the worry and anxiety is great. Psalm 94:19 says, “when anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.” Help me lean into this truth. There is so much to worry about regarding my family. Will they be safe on the road? Will they be targeted by online predators? Will they live for you or choose to turn away? The worries can debilitate me, and I feel crushed by the weight of them. But you are the Most High God, creator of this world, creator of my family and me. You are Almighty God, able to overcome my greatest fears. You are my Lord—ever present in my life to lead and guide. And you are my God, involved in every detail of my life, caring about the things that concern me. I choose to trust you. I trust you with my family’s safety. You are mighty to save and catch me when I fall. You are great and worthy of praise in the good times and the bad times. You are my rock and refuge. Help me to trust you with my family’s safety. You love my family more than I can imagine and you have good plans for their lives too. Keep my family close to your heart and guide their steps as you guide mine. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
