Isaiah 40:10-11 (MSG)
“Climb a high mountain, Zion. You’re the preacher of good news. Raise your voice. Make it good and loud, Jerusalem. You’re the preacher of good news. Speak loud and clear. Don’t be timid! Tell the cities of Judah, ‘Look! Your God!’ Look at him! God, the Master, comes in power, ready to go into action. He is going to pay back his enemies and reward those who have loved him. Like a shepherd, he will care for his flock, gathering the lambs in his arms, hugging them as he carries them, leading the nursing ewes to good pasture.”
PRAY: Father, I thank you today for the ways you have shown me care. I thank you for your care for your people in America. I pray, Lord, that you would fill the hearts of your people with your care for others. Give us opportunities to proclaim the Good News, to tell of your salvation “good and loud” in the heart of your care. Give us your shepherd’s heart for the lost in our nation as we engage publicly this election season.
