Our thought for today is from Lamentations 3:22: "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
Let us pray. Heavenly Father, we thank You that Your mercies surround us every day. Continue Your faithfulness to these Representatives and staff as they strive to do the will of the people they serve. Grant them Your every blessing. For our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who labor in these Halls of Government, continue Your mercies toward them. Protect our defenders of freedom, at home and abroad, as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
