Father, we don’t always understand your ways or how you may have plans to bring good out of seemingly bad. However, your ways are higher than ours. I pray for your will to be done in the lives of our brothers and sisters across the world. May we rejoice with those who rejoice and share the pain of those who are struggling. May hearts rejoice in this season of Christmas as we look to our loving Savior. May you be honored and glorified by our worship of you. Protect and provide for each need.
