ICF Prayer Focus
Those who work as regulators of society
“God, Creator of order from chaos - when you called your people Israel to become a nation you gave decrees and laws to govern every aspect of life; not as an imposition to restrict and control, but as a gift of love so that all members of society might be truly free. We have become so used to the regulations that protect us that we often forget the work of those who implement them. We enter a building without a thought as to whether it is soundly built, queue for our ticket and take for granted that it will gain us admission. Be with those whose work is often unnoticed, whose intervention can often be unappreciated yet whose vigilance is often essential, as they seek to balance diverse and often conflicting expectations for the good of all.”
