Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Jesus, in showing his love and care for his disciples in prayer before God, is our great example that we must, we should, and we can pray for God's spiritual protection on those we love.

My Prayer...

Loving and Tender Shepherd, the great Guardian of the Flock, please be glorified in my life. Please physically and spiritually protect the following people for whom I have deep concerns. In the name of Jesus.
