Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer. How long will you people turn my glory into shame? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods.Know that the LORD has set apart his faithful servant for himself; the LORD hears when I call to him. Tremble and do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. Offer the sacrifices of the righteous and trust in the LORD. Many, LORD, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?” Let the light of your face shine on us. Fill my heart with joy when their grain and new wine abound. In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4 NIV
Thank You for allowing us to see a new year, a time for reflection of the past year events, and new beginnings for the coming year. Thank You for continued determination to stay strong in the face of adversity, courage to stand up and speak out against injustice wherever we find it and boldness to resist the attacks of the enemy and strike back.
Lord, we know You see all and hear all, now hear the distress of Your people and calm them now. Speak a word of encouragement to their hearts and remind them You are always with us. Because of love for us, we are never alone and never in a battle to defeat wickedness on our own for You proceed us and where You are–victory reigns–true victory and not one garnered by manipulation and deception.
Lord, thank You for keeping us–people of integrity and honor–as we navigate the many venues and platforms offering a word of encouragement and support to those who are also in the battle. Let everything we do–honor and praise You–so others will come to You and honor You as their God and not see any man or woman as a substitute for You.
Lord, we look to You to establish justice for all the corruption and dishonorable activities established by those who seek positions of power and authority. Thank You for exposing the lies and deception and for giving us a platform by which we can share the revelations with others so truth will reign and not lies.
To You, our wise God and sovereign Lord–who exists without us, but love us enough to keep us focused on You–we give You praise and magnify Your Name in the morning when we rise, throughout the day, and as we lay upon our beds at the end of the day, knowing we can count on You and the angels You have assigned and dispersed to keep us safe. Thank You for the peace and knowledge that You and You alone will solve any problems and answer any questions we may ever have.
In Jesus’ name we pray and thank You, Amen!
