8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy--meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us as a people and as a nation to believe what is true, noble and just.
12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Philippians 3:12 (NKJV)
Jesus, help us to press on and lay hold of all that you have for us.
13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14 (NKJV)
Help us, Father, forgive what is past and press on to your upward call.
11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: Philippians 4:11 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, having stood all, help us yet to stand. Help us learn to be content in our Father's arms no matter what happens.
13 Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, "Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him." 14 When he arose, he took the young Child and His mother by night and departed for Egypt, 15 and was there until the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, "Out of Egypt I called My Son." 16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men. Matthew 2:13-16 (NKJV)
Jesus, help us recognize that there are rulers who will stop at nothing to stay in power. Holy Spirit, as you warned Joseph to protect his family, help us recognize when we are endangered by our rulers. Thank you.

A Word Received: I have given you my word to show you the way forward, even in times of danger and discord. Don't be afraid, I Am with you. I was with Stephen when he was being stoned. There is no situation you have to face alone. I will be with you.
