Dear Father, the voices all around us, the cries of our own hearts, the anxieties of our minds and the stubbornness of our wills, have deafened the American people from your voice. O Father, you have a way of speaking to us at an unexpected time and place. Through scriptures, surprising people and through circumstances. Help us at the appropriate time to know your voice. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
