Lord, your Word declares that "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty". And your inspired song teaches us that "Great is Thy faithfulness.....and that 'there is no shadow of turning with thee'.....and that 'All I have needed Thy hand has provided'.
Now Lord, on this morning our need is great, as in faith, and according to the needs of our nation, we have set a target for safety on our roads so that more and more of thy children would be rescued from death and injury, from suffering and tragedy. And Lord, the forces of evil and the carelessness of the human heart have conspired to thwart the efforts of your servants.
So we, desperate in our need, and trusting in your faithfulness, cry out to you the God of Jacob, the Holy One of Israel, the great I AM, to stretch out your Right Hand and protect those who use our roads. Stretch out your Right Hand Lord, according to your Word and protect us from the anger of our enemies, as we are helpless without your intervention. And we pray God even more, that as you rescue your people that your Name may be exalted and that Thy will may be done in this nation.
We pray this in the strong name of Jesus, by whose blood, all humans have been Redeemed (though not all have accepted this precious gift) and therefore able to approach you, a Holy God, with confidence, and appeal for grace and mercy in times of trouble. Amen
