You are our strength, Lord God. You are Jehovah Nissi, the banner over us. Guide us and guard us as we traverse the coming days. Events and threats swirl around us, but you are our certainty and the center of our faith. You do not move or change. Your promises are certain. You are in control. Show us the work You set forth for our hands. Strengthen us for the task and uphold us in the distress. We come in agreement before you in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“In those times there was no peace to him who went out or to him who came in, for great disturbances afflicted all the inhabitants of the lands. They were broken in pieces. Nation was crushed by nation and city by city, for God troubled them with every sort of distress. But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.” (2 Chronicles 15: 5-7 ESV)
