“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you, Lord, for being with us as we face some pretty dark days in this world from all sides. Help us to feel your palpable presence of your grace and mercy when the world is coming against us. Teach us to ignore the ignorant chatter of those who hate us and persecute us for doing what is right. Give us your peace that passes ALL understanding when our souls are so weary from the darkness at every turn. We know you are in charge and see everything playing out and we thank you for your unwavering protection from the evil one lurking like a roaming lion who only comes to kill, steal, and destroy our lives and family.
Lord, please continue to uplift our leaders in this country as they walk through these days of dark valleys. Protect them from the evil one and protect their families and advisors and close leaders within their immediate circles. Give our leaders a peace about your hand on their lives in all decisions and laws they make. Continue to build their character to be Christ like with all whom they encounter and to speak truth in love when necessary in their conversations. Thank you for who YOU have in charge in this timing of our country and may you appoint future leaders and law makers who you see fit to lead our country to glorify your ultimate kingdom.
We ask and pray all these things in the Holy name of Jesus!
Amen and Amen
