Today Lord, as the sun rises, your name is to be praised. We ask that you would appoint those whom you call to this place of service – godly, righteous men and women who fear you. Your word tells us that when the righteous thrive, the people rejoice. Position those whom you have called for this day and bless them with an unwavering trust in you. Raise them up and establish them. We ask for your blessing, your counsel, and your divine will in all matters.
