The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the distant shores rejoice. Clouds and thick darkness surround Him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. (Psalm 97:1-2, NIV)
Lord Father, this morning I rejoice in You. Thank You for sleep. Thank You for a bed to sleep in. Thank You for the relationships You have provided for us that enable me to thrive, feel encouraged, and grow.
Thank You for Your grace and encouragement through the day yesterday. Thank You for space now to think, pray, and talk with You.
Lord Father, I pray for my family and friends today. Please give them strength and extra grace today. Pour out the power of Your presence on them.
