Sometimes the surest way to stand is by getting down on our knees. We are encouraged in Hebrews 4:16 to approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. And in Philippians 4 we are promised the peace that transcends all understanding to guard our hearts and minds if we simply with thanksgiving present our requests to God. And I’m telling you, praise and thanks be to Him, it WORKS! I implore you my friends, whatever you are facing, whatever you are holding onto, whatever makes you feel anxious…cast your cares upon our great and powerful God because He cares for you.
Lord Jesus, I praise and worship You because You are worthy. You are holy. You alone are deserving. Lord God, Your Word promises that if Your people, who are called by Your Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek Your face and turn from their wicked ways, then You will hear them from heaving and You will forgive their sin and heal their land. On this election day, I pray that each of us would prayerfully seek the peace and prosperity of this land that You have placed us in. Let us acknowledge that You are on Your throne and in Your sovereignty You place our leaders before us. Let us be a people who continually lift our leaders up to You knowing that You are in control. May we put our hope and trust in You alone so that we never, ever have to fear. In the precious Name of Jesus, Amen.
