Pray

Devotional

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 

2 Corinthians 4:18

It is so easy to focus on what is right in front of us. Paul is reminding us in this verse that earthly things are temporary. We need to have an eternal perspective and remember the significance of what we know to be as true as Chritsians.

Today's STRATEGY: Justice
Today's Focus: Protection for School

In Psalm, chapter 121, verses 5-8, it says:
The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

Let's pray.

Focus

Prayer Leader, assign each point to a person to pray for out loud:

Give thanks:

• Thank God that we can trust Him to watch over us.

Pray for protection:
• in schools across America.
