February is a good time to pray for our political leaders, both current and potential. It is a good time to pray for our country, its policies, its efforts in the world. It is a good time to pray for those who are on the front lines of the battles we each must face in our society.

Dear Lord, You speak often about seeds planted and growing. I know I have the seed of your ways planted in me. It’s growing, too, Lord. I’m realizing right from wrong. I care what You think of things I do and thoughts I have. I realize you want me to be a leader and stand up for what You stand up for. Show me how to keep on growing, Lord. I want to know the strength and the joy that comes from You.
