Father, the prince of darkness has captured the hearts of so many and filled our communities and country and world with great discord, deceit, fear, and hatred. We must not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among us, for it it part of the testing of our faith to see that it is genuine and lasting. Instead we must remain steadfast and firm, focused on Jesus. For at the future appointed hour the kingdom of this world will become the kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ. And He shall reign forever and ever alongside the saints of all the ages and the angelic beings He created to bring Him praise, glory and honor. I long to be among the redeemed singing Your praises through all of eternity. Amen.
