The Lord watches over the nations and knows the times and seasons as they unfold. He who keeps watch over you never slumbers nor sleeps. He who put the stars upon their course knows each of us intimately. He has called you to witness His majesty to the nations. He gives life and keeps us alive. He who watches over you will guide you all the days of your life.
Lord, in the turmoil of this world I see the ways in which men go to and fro and wind up going nowhere. Lead me through the simple truth that this is Your world and that Your purposes shall prevail. Guide me according to those principles to walk humbly with You now and always. Keep me from going astray and help me through the obstacles that come my way that I may be faithful to You always.
Lord Jesus, You know the difficulty of this world and the ways in which many can and do lead people astray. Help me now and always to see in You the hope You provide through the grace You purchased that I may walk in the way You have created for the faithful. I need You to save me from this world, Jesus. Save me and lead me now and always, keeping my eyes fixed upon You. Amen.
