Hope in Evil Times
Focus Scripture: Ephesians 5:15-16 NLT So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.
God of Grace, thank you for this day. In these perilous times, O God, it feels like the weight of the world is pressing down on us. Sometimes we feel lost and alone. Sometimes we feel hurt by the words that others speak to us, and sometimes we speak hurtful words to others. Forgive us. Guide us. Help us to be careful how we live, for others are watching us. Help us to be a light in the midst of darkness. Help us to live in hope in these evil days. Help us to lift up the name of Jesus, who is the author of our faith and the source of our hope, O God. We thank you for his sacrifice. We thank you for your grace. In all things, we give you glory. Amen.
