Hello GiveSendGo Family,
As we witnessed the civil unrest in Washington DC yesterday, our hearts are saddened by the direction we see our country heading. Instead of "One Nation Under God," we see a divided nation under the gods of our own making.
Please join us as we say a prayer for our nation.
We come before you now with repentant hearts. We often fall short of a life that reflects you. Still, you welcome us. Today, we lift up the United States of America. Give our leaders wisdom as they work to bring this country together. Lord, we trust you with our country, our leaders, and our future. We know you can heal our divided land, but more than that, Jesus, heal our divided hearts. So often, we are distracted by what we see, that we forget you are ultimately in control. As it written in John 16:33, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." Let our focus be on you this New Year, willing to be used by you, to share hope with a broken and fallen world. Replace the fear and discouragement in our hearts with boldness and confidence as your representatives at “such a time as this”. Use us, Lord Jesus, to be your hands and feet. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
