Lord God, as both spiritual and physical wars rage on, help us to fight these wars and to not lose heart. Lord God, prepare us for our unknown battles and trials that You will have us face in this new month.
Lord God, thank You that Satan is a defeated foe. Thank You that for those who are in Christ while we can be harassed and attacked, we belong to You and You live in us. Lord God, as the days get darker, may we be reminded that Your light shines bright. May we never forget that Your Word is a light and a lamp. Lord God, may Your people put aside petty differences and seek Your Kingdom first.
Lord God, may we defend Your Word more than our earthly political beliefs. Lord, help us to discern truth from error. Lord God, I beg You to help us to be charitable to our brothers and sisters in Christ who have different conclusions and opinions. May we help people process what is happening in culture with the Truth of Your Word. Lord God, help us to love and trust You more this month.
Lord God, thank You for this reader. Lord, draw this reader closer to Yourself in this new month. Lord God, help this reader to steward all that You have entrusted to them for Your glory. Lord for the reader who does not know Christ and is longing to make sense of this world, may today be their day of salvation.
May we never forget that freedom isn’t free. Christ died to set us free from sin; may we live and praise Him for His finished work on the Cross. Help us to live as a people with hope in this new month. Thank You Lord that nothing and no one can stop You from being the Sovereign Triune God. Thank You Lord that each day, month and year is a fresh opportunity to love and serve You. Lord, may Your people love You more this month. In Jesus’s Name I pray. Amen.
