Most Gracious God, I thank you for allowing us to be here another day. God give us the strength to stand in the gap when someone is facing dilemmas. In other words, God fill me up with compassion, kind heartedness and most of all, concern for others. Thus, “Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). Hence, I thank you, Lord, in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
