Lord God, I pray for the nations. You see what transpires and the chaos and confusion it causes. We may not fully understand why you allow this, but we know You are who you say you are. You are in control. You are our protection day and night. We trust your faithfulness and goodness in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“But when Sanballat and Tobiah and the Arabs and the Ammonites and the Ashdodites heard that the repairing of the walls of Jerusalem was going forward and that the breaches were beginning to be closed, they were very angry. And they all plotted together to come and fight against Jerusalem and to cause confusion in it. And we prayed to our God and set a guard as a protection against them day and night.” (Nehemiah 4: 7-9 ESV)
