Isaiah 42:3 (ESV)
A bruised reed he will not break,
and a faintly burning wick he will not quench;
he will faithfully bring forth justice.

Justice, Lord Jesus!
Justice for Senegal, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, and Guinea. Guard and protect the bruised reeds. Let the light of Christ shine forth from the faintly burning wicks. Lord, have mercy. Amen.

Our Father in heaven,
You are good, a refuge in times of trouble. You care for those who trust in You.
The Pilgrims at Plymouth relied on prayer during their first and darkest winter. Our founding fathers also called for prayer during the Constitutional Congress. You have blessed our nation in more ways than we can know.
We pray that President Obama and Vice President Biden, the Governors of the border States, Secretary Jeh Johnson, Director James Comey, Director John Brennan, Admiral Michael Rogers and all in authority for the protection of our homeland will turn to You in prayer and seek Your guidance. Care for them and protect them from all assaults of the enemy as they lead our nation. Amen.
Nahum 1:7

Ephesians 1:3-5 (MSG)
How blessed is God! And what a blessing he is! He’s the Father of our Master, Jesus Christ, and takes us to the high places of blessing in him. Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure he took in planning this!) He wanted us to enter into the celebration of his lavish gift-giving by the hand of his beloved Son.

How blessed You are, Lord God! What a blessing You are!
We thank You for blessing us with spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus. We lift up the sufferers of autism spectrum disorders, especially _____. Settle on them as the focus of Your love, to be made whole and holy. Amen.
