Jesus is central.
Let all people and nations revolve around Him .
Forgive us Lord for our arrogance and pride and any thinking that it all revolves around us.
Self focusing whether it be in ourselves, our Nations, our church our ethnicity whatever is not of You.
Your Kingdom is for every believer, every tribe, every tongue. It will be You who mark and choose never us.
We are all drawn together as brother and sister in one Family.
We are called to celebrate strengths not ever to judge weakness as our perceptions are not all seeing as Your’s.
You will be the author of counter balancing rights and wrongs.
Choosing what you desire of leaders and governments.
As in Your prophesy of Gog coming up against Israel, your chosen ones, You will be known to be Holy and glorious.
We align our prayer with Yours that Your kingdom will come so that none will be lost.
We align our prayer to ask that You remove all our weapons that we have used to hurt others.
Let our spiritual eyes see all as if skin and perceived cultures are stripped away to reveal all that is common to us beneath.
Love our enemies.
Love our neighbours.
Love all as ourselves.
As You navigate our journey let us see Your face made up of the pixels of the faces of every colour and tribe and nation.
Let us see the beauty shining from its diversity,
Let us be like you and open our arms to welcome all.
Break down walls and boundaries making no divisions.
Let us seek only Your face knowing You encompass all.
Let us trust in You.
Lord our prayer is that you off-set the progress made in science and technology.
The double edge of the sword that the intelligence brings many breakthroughs.
In medical progress to diagnose, eliminate and treat many circumstances.
That eradicate global economical, environment and ecological issues.
That expand our universe and resources.
Guard this intelligence, progress and knowledge to be used always with good and Godly motivation and never with destruction or evil motivation.
Lord allay what could be our greatest fears by the faith we have in You and Your promises of what You have already been victorious over.
Our trust is in Your Glory and victory always. Amen

Five Scriptures that come to mind:
“After this I looked, and behold, right in front of me I saw a vast multitude of people—an enormous multitude so huge that no one could count—made up of victorious ones from every nation, tribe, people group, and language. They were all in glistening white robes, standing before the throne and before the Lamb with palm branches in their hands.”Revelation 7:9 TPT
“Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord.”Psalm 32:10 ESV
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.”Isaiah 55:8 ESV
“so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”Isaiah 55:11 ESV
“You will come up against my people Israel, like a cloud covering the land. In the latter days I will bring you against my land, that the nations may know me, when through you, O Gog, I vindicate my holiness before their eyes.”Ezekiel 38:16 ESV
