There is so much to pray for in our country and around the world. I would like to recommend that you set aside at least one day when you pray for our nation and our leaders bot from your political view from releasing and lifting them to God and God's will and guidance.

I just have to share Today's Devotional "PEOPLE OVER POLICY":
"You probably know the story of the prodigal son (Luke 15). One son left, one son stayed; the younger son squandered his fortune but, realizing his mistakes, returned, and the father celebrated; his older son got angry, feeling that his father never treated him as well as his brother who wasted his inheritance. The obvious implication: the Heavenly Father accepts the repentant heart, but Paul’s discourse in Acts 28 says more.
The sons who stayed and left, respectively, can represent the Jews and Gentiles. Israel despised the Gentiles due to their alleged “inferiority.” However, the Father welcomed the Gentiles when Israel was still following His law. The difference was the heart of each. One was restored as a loving son; the other became angry and bitter. In the end, the Jewish leaders forgot God’s purposes for His way of salvation, prioritizing instead rules and regulations in their dealings with others.
Like Israel, America’s leadership has sometimes treated legislation itself as being more important than the citizens for whom the laws were created.
Pray that Congress not forget the reason they’ve been given authority…and that they would prioritize Godly values over special interests."

– (April 21) His omnipresence – He is all-present
Lesson 4 - (April 28) He is love – all the time
"Beloved One, as you pray and study God’s Word, realize that Christ Jesus came in love. He came to reflect the image of God and be an example to you. Now you are called to reflect His love to others. Be motivated to no longer live for yourself but for Him.
(II Corinthians 5:14-15).
If you feel far from God, remember Christ’s parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32) and come back to the One who loves you and will welcome you with open arms. Know you can come home to the Lord who is passionate over you…whose love never grows cold."Jeana gives many characteristics of the Lord for us to relate to the impact they should have on us and the way we pray such as:
