1. Psalm 75: 1 “We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks, for Your name is near; men declare Your wondrous works.” Father God, we come before You expressing our utter amazement at Your creativity. We give thanks for the world in which we live. Your intricate development of humanity and Your instruction for living here is both challenging and rewarding. We praise You because it is Your design that we have and need a personal relationship with You, our Father!
2. Isaiah 41: 10 “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God, I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Father, there are many who are suffering now because of flooding and fires. Would You help them to trust You in the midst of disasters? Use us in whatever way You choose to be a blessing and to provide encouragement to those who are hurting.
