Father God, you are the Almighty God. You are the maker and defeater of nations. You raise up kings and put down kingdoms. You are sovereign. You called me by name to come out of the darkness and into your marvelous light. I am of your household. I praise your name and seek to glorify it. I want to know you more in the name and authority of Jesus, and according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.” (John 8:46-47 ESV)
