Increase the mercy in my heart, Father God. Pour your loving kindness through me in the face of wrath. Rebuke the evil one, Father. Come to the aid of your children. Focus our attention on the Lord. Place your hedge of protection around your servants. Guard our hearts and minds through your Word. I pray for clarity in the chaos and strength in the seduction of fear in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. And have mercy on those who doubt; save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.” (Jude: 20-23 ESV)
