TURNING THE ABOVE DAY’S VERSES INTO A PRAYER
Father, as judgment begins in the church, it is easy for us to be critical of our government and misplace our trust, by thinking that, “this person or that person” will do a better job. You are our refuge Father, and we are the apple of Your eye. In the midst of difficulties, You are the one who keeps us sheltered under Your wings. Praise You Father, and forgive us, for misplaced trust…
NOTE: The term “son of man” sometimes only means, men, regular men, not the “Son of God.”
