Thank You for revealing that Your wisdom is not in the ways of men nor is it in man at all to direct his own steps. We see so many who are foolish but hey have no idea they are fools because they are without knowledge of You. They have no idea that You are the way into truth and fullness of life. So many embrace falsehood and worthless doctrines and futile customs and works of error! Only You can open their hearts. Only You can reveal and heal the incurable wound, our tragic flaw. Revive and raise we bring to You who are unwittingly walking dead, and give us the trust in You to entrust them to Your care. Thank You that we clearly hear You as You say, "Behold, I will distress them that they may know that I AM the LORD of Hosts who made the earth and established the world by My wisdom, who is the Maker of all things, who made Israel the tribe of My inheritance."
Thank You for hearing when we called to You in our distress, for answering us and for setting us into Your Body, for making our footing sure. Thank You for regenerating us from darkness into light as Your elect, O GOD, holy and beloved, clothed in Your tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, and longsuffering to bear with one another and to forgive one another, united by Your perfect bond of love. May Your peace rule in our hearts as we wait and watch for Your day, O LORD. In Christ and by Your Holy Spirit we pray. Amen.
