Romans 8:19-21 (ESV)
For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
Our Father in heaven,
At the portico of the temple, Solomon erected two bronze pillars. The pillars were named Jakin (He establishes) and Boaz (in Him is strength). The top of each pillar was decorated with a network of 200 bronze pomegranates.
You have established this fertile land called the Mississippi Delta. In You the land of the Mississippi Delta is strong. Your name is a strong tower; in Your name, the righteous find safety.
We proclaim Your name over the farms of the Mississippi Delta. As children of the living God, we declare to the Delta farm land, You are established in the Lord God Almighty. Your strength is in God. In God, you are free to be fruitful. Freedom! Amen.
