A Prayer of Trust

The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever. Psalm 29:10

God, our God,
King over all, including this chaos.
You are always enthroned on high; You are always king.
You alone are sovereign over this world you have made.
In a time when we groan with uncertainty,
when we are overwhelmed by the invisible flood of pandemic and panic,
Be king.
Be king over nations, and governments.
Be king over sickness and death.
Be king over communities and families.
Be king over me.
Be king over the floods around me and the floods in me.
For Jesus’ sake. Amen.
