O God of the ages, we hear the troubling news from around the world and we turn to you for comfort and assurance. From the beginning of time, there have been troubling places and times. You are a steadfast God who never changes and we look to you for strength that only you can provide. Just to know you is a comfort that compares to none other. Thank you our one true God. We place our eyes on you and we thank you for your son, Jesus, who is our blessed redeemer. He alone gave his life on Calvary’s Cross for our sins. Today, I pray that all will learn from and know his way. In your mighty and holy name, I pray. Amen.
