9: Protection



O Lord, our great shepherd King and protector, you promise us that you will never leave us nor forsake us. You are the one who tends his flock and gives constant care. We need your protection. We live in times of both physical and spiritual danger. Our world has not changed since the days of your servant Solomon, who reminds us that unless you watch over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain. Our hope is in you, our Savior.

Our president, Donald Trump, has the responsibility to do everything in his power to protect and defend the people of this great nation. We pray that you would give him and his administration the ability and means to care for all citizens as well as those who live within our borders. Give him your wisdom as he carries out needed justice. We ask for your great blessings upon his work for your glory in the name of our great shepherd, Jesus Christ. Amen.
