Through the confusion, Lord, give us Your peace.

Through the confusion, Lord, give us Your peace.

Father, You are Creator of the Universe, and yet You know us by name. You know our desires, our dreams, our fears, and our doubts. You know when we are deluged by confusion and lack peace.

You know our coming ins and our going outs, and You hedge us in from before and behind. What a massive hug that is — You completely surround us with Your precious Spirit and love.

You are beautiful, Lord. You are faithful and true. Bless You Father.

So many things are happening in our world today — our country — things that are wrong and disturbing. Thank You for Your longsuffering and mercy. Thank You for never growing weary with Your children.

Anoint us with boldness to stand for righteousness — to be Your light in a darkened world. Help us walk in Your Truth and to represent You correctly and with honor.

I ask that You give us discernment between evil and good, truth and falsehood. I ask that You replace our fear with courage, our confusion with peace, for You are not a god of confusion, but a God of peace. I’m so thankful for that.

Together, we bring America before Your throne of grace and plead for mercy for a land that once shouted Your Name to the world and now hides behind political correctness. Forgive us Lord. Forgive us for not becoming angry sooner and making our voices heard.

But even in our anger and frustration, help us walk in Your love, for they will know us by Your love. Fill us with compassion for the lost and remove complacency from our hearts. Cause us to weep with those who weep, and rejoice with those who rejoice. Cause us to look unto the fields and realize that the harvest is ripe and that You expect us to do something about it.

Cause us to fall to our knees and look up to find Your glorious grace. We need Your grace, Lord. We need You. Please show Yourself mighty on our behalf and heal our land.

In Jesus’ Name I pray,

Amen
