Gracious Lord, we rejoice that you are in charge of all things. We have seen the great destruction that we bring onto our world through our sin, and we cry out to you to bring about the restoration and repair that only you can bring. Thank you that you have revealed your great healing through the gospel of your grace and ask that more and more from our campus here in Cairns will come to know of it. Lord, we ask that you will extend your mercy and grace to all in times of trouble. Please give safety and provision to those who are in danger of floods. Please provide the same for those still suffering under devastating war. In all this Lord, please give us great patience and perseverance as we long for the day when you will bring everything to rights again.
