Almighty Infinite Father, you are the God over all. You are Yahweh Nissi, our banner. There is no substitute. The Israelites used your ark like an idol to protect them in battle and the ark was captured. I pray you will open my eyes to the folly before I ever put a church facility or another human above who You are. Don’t let me fall into that misrepresentation. You are my God. Jesus is my Savior. Your Holy Spirit is my guide; and your Word is my foundation. I pray to always walk within the circle of your will in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“And she said, “The glory has departed from Israel, for the ark of God has been captured.” (1 Samuel 4:22 ESV)
