Praying in Times of Uncertainty

We face various kinds of uncertainties in life. It comes in the form of a dreaded disease, a lost opportunity, setbacks in business and career, a failing marriage, or a wayward son. Moreover, the damaging interruptions of the COVID-19 crisis and the onslaught of typhoons and floods are common challenges for all of us. We are also challenged with the unjust ways in our world that keep many in the mire of poverty and ignorance while being further exploited to death.

The series of devotions are reflections from the book of Habakkuk to guide CCBCers in engaging with God in prayer and fasting through such a time as this.

Through the story of Habakkuk, we practice wrestling, waiting, watching, listening, interceding, and worshipping as practice of praying. Instead of panic, we PAUSE.

As we pause through prayer and fasting, may we learn to:

  • Sustain intimate fellowship with God even through matters of unanswered queries on suffering and injustice,
  • Develop a deeper passion towards seeking the honor of God’s glory, and
  • Wait and listen to God in prayer.

How to make the most of the devotional guide:

  • Set a time and a quiet place for the next six days to meet with God in prayer and devotions for at least half an hour.
  • Bring your Bible, journal, and this devotional guide.
  • Set your mind to worship either by singing or by being quiet in your heart and mind. Follow CCBC’s Spotify for the worship playlist.
  • Pray for God to speak to you and as you meditate and pray.
  • Read the suggested Scripture passage carefully. Observe and note what words or images resonate with you. Use the reflection questions as a guide.
  • Jot down your thoughts. Turn it into prayer. You may use the guide in your devotional as well.
  • Join us in our Daily Live Prayer at 6:00pm on CCBC’s Facebook page.
