Kingdom Prayer Focus

Lord, you are our light and our salvation—whom shall we fear? You are the stronghold of our life—of whom shall I we afraid? When the wicked advance against us to devour us, it is our enemies and our foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege us, our hearts will not fear; though war break out against us, even then we will be confident. Hear our voice when we call, Lord; be merciful to us and answer us. Our heart says of you, “Seek his face!”  Your face, Lord, we will seek. In Jesus’ Holy name, amen.
