Dear Heavenly Father, We love you with all that is within us, even when what is within us is not very much at all. When we need to see your power, O Lord, give us a heart that waits upon you. When we want to see your heavenly fire come down and wipe out the evil of the world, help us to wait upon your will to be made manifest. When you chose not to display any of your power in the way we want, show us your power is the power of love that does not destroy but always restores. When we want to see your power displayed like the mightiest of hurricanes, show us your power is the power of tenderness, kindness, caring, and compassion. Let our hearts rest in the knowledge that your wisdom is greater than any wisdom we mortals can fathom. Let our hearts rest in the knowledge that your wisdom stands in judgement of every person. Let our hearts rest in the knowledge that your judgement is sure, true, and just beyond human comprehension. As we want the score in the battle between good and evil to be such that good should win every battle here in this life, show us the real winning score is when one heart comes to you, one heart at a time. Let every heart attacked by satanic evil be given your knowledge of right and wrong, good and evil. Let every heart pulled, pushed, and tormented by the acts of Satan, be given quiet respite as you touch that heart. As the battle rages around us, give us the wisdom and power to proclaim your name in glory, in truth, in our actions, in our thoughts, and in our deeds. Let us never be hindered in our speaking about you, never be hindered in our love of you, never be hindered in our adoration of you, and never be hindered in our worship of you. All these things we humbly pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen and Amen.
