I praise You, O, God, because You are able to make Your grace abound toward Your people above and beyond anything we deserve. You are our Fortress, a very present help in time of trouble. You are our Hiding Place, our Sanctuary. You are good and kind and merciful. I ask, O, God, that You bring peace to the hearts and minds of my sisters and brothers in Christ who may, even now as I pray…be suffering for Your name. Give us strength and courage to weather the storm, to be able to stand.
