"Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
—Hebrews 12:2 (NKJV)
- Fix your eyes on Jesus and thank Him for enduring the cross on our behalf.
- Ask the Lord to show you how to pray for our nation—especially a political system that seems increasingly ineffective.
