As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Blinken and the diplomatic corps in the State Department as they engage foreign ministers in dialogue.
  • For wisdom for the secretary of state as he discusses mutual concerns with international leaders.
  • For the president and his foreign policy advisors as they weigh continuing aid to Ukraine and other nations experiencing wars and conflict.
