Dear God, bring back sanity, reasoned thought, clear thinking and a vision for your purpose. It appears that the nation has lost its collective mind. I can’t tell if this is from you like your Deuteronomy 28 curses for disobedience, or if this is satanic influence as his anger escalates in the last days. You stand by your beloved, Father. You did not give us a spirit of fear, but one of power, love and self-control. Grant us the eyes to be watchful, for our adversary prowls like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. May we lift our heads to focus on Jesus. It is in his name above all names and power yet to be witnessed that I pray, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 1:13 ESV)
