Lord, today is a time trial where these riders who need to limit their time loss give it their all. They dig done deep and use every ounce of strength that they have to get the job done.
Lord you have promised to allow us to work in your strength. Paul wrote "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". Lord over the last few weeks I have learned that you desire to be more than just our strength, but you desire to provide us with love, mercy, strength, wisdom, peace, goodness, meekness, kindness, knowledge, your intercession before the Father, your righteousness. But you also want us to share in your suffering.
Lord, thank you for opening my eyes to all you are able to provide. Lord, so before we go in the red in life remind us we are not alone and you are able to provide what we need everyday in every circumstance.
Lord, we pray for France as a nation and as individual people and so Lord, we pray that they will grasp and live in your power and grace as a nation full of individuals who seek after you.
We pray in the name of Jesus our provider and King. Amen.
