: marked interest or regard usually arising though a personal tie or relationship
PRAY: Lord, I pray today that you would give me your heart of gracious concern for my neighbors as I approach the election in my nation this November. I pray that you would use my vote to minister your restoration and your compassion to your people and to the lost in America. I pray that you would nudge the hearts of your people to remember, God, that when we respond to you and obey you, you will restore us.
“Here’s what will happen. While you’re out among the nations where God has dispersed you and the blessings and curses come in just the way I have set them before you, and you and your children take them seriously and come back to God, your God, and obey him with your whole heart and soul according to everything that I command you today, God, your God, will restore everything you lost; he’ll have compassion on you; he’ll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered. No matter how far away you end up, God, your God, will get you out of there and bring you back to the land your ancestors once possessed.”
