Focus Scripture: Psalm 140:12-13 (NIV) I know that the Lord secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy. Surely the righteous will praise your name, and the upright will live in your presence.
Holy God, we thank you for the blessings of this day. We thank you because you are just and righteous and watch out for the poor and needy. We are all needy today, O God. We need you now more than ever before and we look to you to lead us along the way. O God, we pray for the upright and for those who do not yet know who you are. We lift them up to you this day. We pray that you will reveal yourself to someone today. Help them to feel hopeful and to persevere in spite of the odds against them. Help the upright to live in your presence. We pray it all in the name of Jesus. Amen.
