Blessed Lord, we come to You in praise and worship, always seeking to magnify Your name. Your blessedness proceeds You and none can truly comprehend the depth of Your knowledge nor the complexity of Your goodness. We stand in awe of You Lord and prostrate ourselves in gratitude for Your many gifts of the fruit of the Spirit. Lord, please be with those Christians being persecuted throughout the world and be a light to them that brings them out of darkness. Father, we also pray for those Americans still trapped in Afghanistan along with our Afghan allies. Place Your shield of protection around them Lord. Guide them by day and night that they may avoid the savagery that is engulfing that country. Lastly, Lord we pray for Israel in times like these that You may make Yourself known to the nations and that they know that Israel is Yours and it’s people are under Your protection. We pray all these things in Jesus holy name, Amen
