We come before You today with a heavy heart, as we have had items stolen from us. Lord, we know that everything belongs to You, and we trust that You will provide for all of our needs.
But at this moment, we are feeling the pain of loss and injustice. We ask for Your comfort and peace to fill our hearts as we navigate this difficult situation.
Please guide us in how to respond to this situation with love and forgiveness, even towards the person who took our items. Help us to trust in Your sovereignty and Your plan for our lives.
Lord, we pray that the stolen items would be returned to us, or that You would provide a replacement in Your perfect timing. But above all, we pray for the thief to come to know You and the transformative power of Your love and grace.
Thank You for Your constant presence and provision in our lives.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
