All is well.

Because of Your love
All can be well, all will be well,
and all is well

Lord help us hold to that as the rush and roar of this world spools up. Help us cling to the joy and wonder that the God of the universe would come to be with us, that You would enter our mess to save us from it. Lord, help us not to have soul amnesia, but to remember You hold us, and we can trust You.

Lord, may Your will reign supreme on the Korean peninsula, in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, and so many other hurting places.

We pray all is well with our deployed troops. May the hard times bring them closer to You. Please bless their efforts to bring peace on earth. Please keep them safe and bring them home.

We pray for the young military members, away from home for the first time this Christmas. May they feel Your presence.

We pray all is well with our military families–the ones struggling in their marriage, the ones struggling with sickness, the ones grieving over loss, those who are PCSing, those who need houses bought/sold/rented.

In all these things, Lord, may we seek Your face and do Your will.

We pray for those who have lost loved ones recently.

We pray for the chaplain’s wife who is losing her mother.

We pray for the families of our fallen military as they face a new year.

We pray for those fighting cancer.

We pray for parents–from the tired parents of toddlers to the anxious parents of teens–please give us wisdom.

We pray for the little girl with pneumonia and the baby boy recovering from heart surgery.

We pray for those retiring. Lord, please guide their steps.

We pray for those deploying and going to training. Lord, please grant safe travel. Please be with their families and give them endurance.

Father, please give peace and wisdom to our leaders, especially as they decide on assignments and choose new people for positions (including the Chief of Chaplains’ office).

Lord God, please be with our veterans and please calm their personal wars.

It is only through You, Lord, that our soul can find rest in the midst of such need. We will tell of it. We will sing it. We will remember it and live like it. Help us Father. Thank You for making all well.
