Let me be steadfast for those around me, a source of stability in these troubled times. Anchor me to Your hope and Your love so that I can pull others into Your calm. Today I pray for those working long hours, facing new challenges, making hard choices; give them wisdom, strength and comfort. You are a God who does not slumber or sleep; You do not grow weary. As you keep watch over loved ones near and far, protect them, I pray. You have always had the world in Your hands and today is no different.
