Prayers for America:
excerpts from Crosswalk
We pray for your great healing on our land. Shine your face on us dear God. We need you now, more than ever before. Our times are in your hands. Thank you that you are rich in mercy and full of grace. Thank you that you are forgiving and merciful. Thank you that you are strong and mighty. Thank you that you are for us and that you fight for us still today. Bring honor to your Name, Oh Lord, for You alone are worthy. - Debbie McDaniel
Pray for President Biden , VP Kamala Harris, and all his cabinet, and his advising doctors and all our country's elected leaders.. Grant them wisdom, to navigate these churning waters... to bring us safely to the other side..
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.—John 14:27 (NIV)
