6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)
Lord Jesus, please come and take upon your shoulder our government. We have made a hash of it and we need you to straighten us out.
Handel: Messiah, For unto us a child is born (Sir Colin Davis, Tenebrae, LSO)
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. 3 For I am the LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; Isaiah 43:2-3a (NKJV)
Father, this is a time of deep waters and raging torrents. We need the guidance of your Holy Spirit to get us through this epidemic of politics and sickness.
I Need Thee Every Hour
A Word Received: Look to me for guidance to get through the floods that would overwhelm you.
