“May our sons flourish in their youth like well-nutured plants. May our daughters be like graceful pillars, carved to beautify a palace. May our barns be filled with crops of every kind. May the flocks in our fields multiply by the thousands, even tens of thousands, and may our oxen be loaded down with produce. May there be no enemy breaking through our walls, no going into captivity, no cries of alarm in our town squares. Yes, joyful are those who live like this! Joyful indeed are those whose God is the Lord.” ~ Psalm 144:12-15 NLT
“Praise the Lord! Let all that I am praise the Lord! I will praise the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath. Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there. When they breathe their last, they return to the earth, and all their plans die with them.” ~ Psalm 146:1-4 NLT
“May our people repent and turn back to You with humble hearts so that You will reach down, O Lord. We need Your Holy Presence now. In Your Powerful Name Jesus, thank You. Amen.”
