God, the Father of this nation, has promised us grace, mercy, and peace in the midst of pain and loss, sin and sorrow, worries and weariness. We can all find reasons to be concerned about our nation and the direction we’re headed. Rather than being anxious, may we choose to be prayerful. Let us keep our eyes on our Sovereign Lord who has protected and sustained our nation to this point. Let us also be responsible citizens, asking God to grant us wisdom about issues concerning our nation.
Philippians 4:6-7 – Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ.
The worries of each day are ever around us. Conflict, both within and without, threatens the peace we so desperately want and seek. Father, we come to You with open hearts, seeking Your guidance and being content with all that You have given us as a nation. Guard our hearts, O Lord, so that we will be faithful to You, and let the peace of your presence surround us each and every day.
