LORD, there is no one like you. You are great! Your name is great and powerful! Everyone should respect you, even the leaders of all the nations. You deserve the respect of everyone, great or small. There are many wise men among the nations, but not one of them is as wise as You. Father, I have seen the folly of other nations who worship worthless wooden statues. They use the things that You have created to make their idols; they overlay them with gold or silver and then they dress them in expensive robes. Man making his own god out of wood or metal: it doesn’t make sense. LORD, You are God the creator of heaven and earth. You are the only God. You are the one true God. You are the living God. You are the sovereign God. The earth shakes when You are angry. No nation or group of nations can stop Your anger. You are greater than our weapons of mass destruction. You can humble us to our knees in a heartbeat. Lord, I know that our lives do not belong to us. We have no control over what happens. So correct us, Lord! But please be merciful and gentle. Don’t punish us in anger, or you will destroy us! Help us to get Your gospel to the nations that do not know and worship You. We long for the day when all nations will respect You. We know that someday they will worship you, even those nations that have despised Israel and hated Christians will someday bow and acknowledge that Jesus is LORD. Father, we await that day when Jesus will make everything right. Don’t let what’s wrong with us keep us from sharing what’s right with HIM. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!
