Elijah’s God is My God Too!

Today: My Constant Companion

15th Sunday After Pentecost

We are in a time of change and transition and that is never easy. Really, we are always in a time of transition, from life to death and from death to life: physically and spiritually. Rejoice then that you have a God who is constant, who never changes, who promises to be our constant companion in the midst of change.

As We Face 

COVID-19

We Pray: Lord God, our Redeemer and Protector, we come to you seeking the help that only you can give. We ask that you spare people in our country and around the world from any harm to body and soul. Grant healing and comfort to those who may be afflicted with this or any other disease. Be with those who care for the sick and keep them from danger. Give wisdom and steadfastness to our nation’s leaders and a spirit of courage and cooperation to our communities. Calm our fears of the unknown. Use your Word to work in us a strong faith and trust in your promise to use all things to work for the good of those who love you. We can be confident in you and your promises in this uncertain and difficult time because of the love and faithfulness you demonstrated in sending your Son to the cross for us and for all people. Help us to keep our eyes fixed on you, our Refuge and Strength. Amen.
 

And we trust in God. Our Savior has promised that he will never leave us or forsake us. That is true when times are good and when times are difficult. That promise can give us encouragement for the present and hope for the future. As the Psalm writer said, “God is our refuge and strength.” Jesus has conquered all evil by his death and resurrection and his victory is ours and so we can encourage and comfort one another to remain fearless in the face of danger and joyful no matter what the circumstances.

We are living in a unique time. Remember to look for opportunities to steer your conversations with neighbors and friends to the comfort and hope that we have in Christ!
