Reflection & Prayer

Proverbs 28:2 (NLT)When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability.

Sovereign Lord: Heal our land; make us one nation under Your rule and reign –

+ that wise, godly, leaders may rise up and restore our unity and stability

+ that the poor may receive assistance and equal justice under the law

+ that business dealings may be honest and open to scrutiny

+ that young and old may respect the law, and evildoers punished

+ that all may trust You, confess their sins, turn from them, and receive mercy

+ that the godly may prosper, hate corruption, and have along life

+ that hard, trustworthy, work may be rewarded with success

Sovereign Lord: Raise up wise and knowledgeable leaders, who will accept honest criticism and put their trust in You; that your people may live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity – through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You in unity with the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.
