Father God, I run to you. Your throne is in heaven. You are in control. The wicked throw their projectiles, flinging their evil; they shoot in the dark at the upright in heart. You test the righteous, but you hate the wicked and the ones who love violence. Fire and sulfur and a scorching wind are the portion of their cup. Father, you are righteous. You love righteous deeds; and the righteous shall see your face. I take my refuge in you in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven; his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man.” (Psalm 11:4 ESV)
