Read Wendy’s prayer on p. 187 and pray it from your own heart.
Heavenly Father, it is so difficult to walk through darkness. You feel so far away. I feel so alone. Father, thank You for Your promise that You will never leave me or forsake me and that there is nothing in all creation that will ever separate me from the love I have in Your Son, Jesus. Thank You for Your promise that You will bring good out of anything that enters my life when I love You and trust You to use it for Your purposes. Lord, I cling to that promise now. I also claim Your promise that You have a plan anda purpose for my life, and it is to prosper and not to harm me, to give me a hope and a future. Walk ever so closely with me during this darkness, Lord, and show me the treasures. Thank You that You will bring beauty from ashes. I ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen. *
