To you, Lord, I call, for fire has devoured the pastures in the wilderness and flames have burned up all the trees of the field. Even the wild animals pant for you; the streams of water have dried up and fire has devoured the pastures in the wilderness.
Joel 1:19-20 New International Version (NIV)
Creator God and Father of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, You are all and over all. All our praise we offer You. We call out to You for You are Alpha and Omega, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Heal our land and restore Your righteousness to all Your hands have made. You are our only help and hope for survival in this fallen world. Grant us joy in this barren land of the living until You decide enough is enough. Grant us favor as we wait for Your timing to bring glory to Your holy name and bring all things together in accordance to Your perfect will. Thank You for who You are.
In the name of Jesus, we pray.
. . . . Forgive all our sins and graciously receive us, so that we may offer you our praises.
Hosea 14:2 NLT
