Lord, you are our source of comfort and peace.
Today I ask that you speak your comfort to all families who have a loved one fighting in a war right now.
They have fear in their hearts and don’t know whether they will see their loved one again.
May they give you all their cares and worries and exchange them for your peace that surpasses human understanding.
Remind them you have not given them a spirit of fear but one of love, power and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
Show them they can pray instead of worrying and giving in to fearful thoughts.
Give them the courage to face each day knowing they are always under your care and so is their loved one.
Strengthen them when their hearts are scared and weary. I pray they will trust in you knowing you love them and have their best interests at heart.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
