Devotions with the Chaplain

August 18, 2020

Contributed by Sunrise Chaplain Scott Squires

Who do you turn to for strength?  We are all experiencing a trying time as we continue to alter our lives so we might prevent the spread of COVID.  At times, we all feel spiritual weary and exhausted.  When we feel as though our spirits are weak, we can turn to Christ through prayer, personal worship, and/or the reading the scripture for spiritual inspiration and strength. In the book of Nehemiah 8:10, we read these words: “The joy of the Lord is my strength.”

Let us pray, “God we are so often weighed down by the tragedies of this world.  We are always in need of Your grace and healing.  Only You can mend our broken spirits and give us strength that will enable us to flourish in our faith and affirm Your joy.  Please remind us of Your love and awaken us to the depths of Your joy.  Amen.”
