God, tonight we pray for the one who has received unexpected and difficult news. This news has left them feeling sad, uncertain, or disappointed. Perhaps they feel anxious or afraid. Maybe they even feel completely defeated, Father.
But whatever the news and whatever they are feeling, God, tonight we remember that this situation has not taken you by surprise. You’re not wringing your hands wondering what to do. You’re not afraid or unsure. You are still God almighty. You are still on the throne. And there is nothing in this world that is beyond your ability to redeem—nothing beyond your ability to bring about something good.
So we ask tonight that you comfort the heart of the one who is hurting. Please remind them you are still present and you are still at work in their life. Please fill them with an extra measure of your strength and hope.
God, we thank you that you are bigger than any situation we face. We thank you that you are good. And we thank you for loving us. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
