Matt prays that Isaac would have a heart like King David’s.
I pray that he would grow up to be courageous – fearing God more than man and standing strong in the face of adversity.
Our prayers are one in the same.
Sometimes it can be so discouraging to watch what is happening on the national stage. Overwhelming. Disheartening. Heartbreaking.
The task is set before us – to raise up young patriots that will some day become the flag bearers, who are the image bearers. Not of a nation, but of a God. The God.
Who will have hearts like David.
Who will fear God more than man.
Who will be courageous in the face of adversity.
Oh, Lord, we pray for your help. We can’t do Your work without You. In fact, we can’t do anything without You. Guide us as we guide Isaac. Lead us as we lead him. Help us to seek You daily so that our lives will be lights that show him You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
