How does your commitment to Christ keep you going through this Pandemic? A number of KIROS Board members shared a verse or a prayer that they found helpful, and perhaps these will be helpful to you as well.

Tripp Parker:

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things…

I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:8, 12-13

Kristen R. (Voetmann) Thornton:

The Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Kim Rankin:

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Isaiah 26:3

Scott Hedgcock:

Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? Luke 12:22-26

Mike Wehner:

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John 16:33

Jeff Rogers:

Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6

Nancy Erisman:

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4

Mason Rutledge:

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. James 3:17

Al Erisman:

Whatever you do, work at it with all of your heart as working for the Lord and not for men….it is the Lord Christ you are serving. Colossians 3:23-24

Randal Dick:

Then the people who feared the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord listened and heard what they said. In his presence was written down in a book a record of those who feared the Lord and respected him. “They will my people,” says the Lord Almighty. “On the day when I act they will be my very own. I will be merciful to them as parents are merciful to the children who serve them.” Malachi 3:16-17
