Father God, I pray that those who know you and seek you tangibly feel your loving presence. May they know the warmth of your embrace across their shoulders. May they sense the power of your loving arms upholding them. Grant them the grace necessary to complete your will for them. Sustain them in the struggle and rejoice with them in the victory. I pray that those who don’t know you will look to you, for you turn the hearts of the kings like the waters in the streams. I come humbly to your throne with my request in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.” (1 John 4: 7-8 ESV)
