Dear Willis, please remember that our God is powerful, He created heaven and earth. God wants you (us) to approach HIS throne "boldly", confident of that plan and confident of the relationship. Please do not be afraid, put your trust in the Lord, for many blessings are given to those who trust the Lord, and have no confidence in those who are proud, or who trust in idols.
Let us both pray boldly to our Heavenly Father and trust Him with all of our heart and lean not on our own understanding. We must be specific, and it must be faith-centred petition and our hope thereby that our prayers meet the conditions of a loving Heavenly Father, and we believe our Father, in Jesus' name WILL respond. Amen.
(Roman 15:13) "Now the God of hope will you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Father, God of all hope, I lift Willis and his family to You right now in Jesus' name. We come to You, Lord because we have nowhere else to turn. All appears hopeless, Lord, because Willis thought he had made a mistake which may cause his superiors to terminate his services. He is in great fear of losing his job and the security of his family. His hope is in You right now, dear Jesus, to save him and to give him the strength in his hour of weakness. Despite circumstances, however, he turn to You because Your Word declares that Christ in him is the hope of glory. Lord Jesus Christ, fill Willis' life with Your hope so that he might be able to glorify You in the midst of suffering and he might be enabled by Your Holy spirit to hope unto the end. Father, I know it is not Your will for Willis and his family to live in discouragement and despair. For the hopelessness is the work of the enemy. May Your Word fill him with faith and hope that it will prevent Willis from being ashamed. I ask, Lord for Your mercy and Your grace that Willis will have a right relationship with You based on submission, trust and obedience. Lord Jesus Christ, You love Willis and his family with an everlasting love, may he receive Your precious gifts of everlasting consolations and good hope through grace in his life right now, Lord. For You are the anchor of Willis' soul and it is sure and steadfast. Remove that fear from his heart, for You are not giving him the spirit of fear, but of love, power and sound mind. Thank You Lord for the happiness that comes from trusting in You. You are our hope in the day of evil, we trust You for You are our Father and our God. You promise You will never abandon Willis and his family, day and night You will watch over them. Lord, we take You at Your Word, for Your Word is holy. May willis continue to rejoice and praise Your holy name as You fill him with hope. Father, please guide Willis to forgive those who are hurting him. Let those who hurt him receive judgement from You, in perfect truth. Thank You Father, that You are the Master in the lives of this couple and their children. I plead the blood of Jesus Christ upon each and every member of this family. Wherever they go, surround them with Your angels, cover and protect them from harm and evil. Lord, I know You will make a way when they seems to be no way for Willis. You are our Father, our Saviour and our Best Friend. Thank You Jesus. I ask all of these for Your name sake. Amen.
