1 Kings 7:21 NLT
Huram set the pillars at the entrance of the Temple, one toward the south and one toward the north. He named the one on the south Jakin, and the one on the north Boaz.
Boaz–in Him is strength
2 Chronicles 23:13a NLT
When she arrived, she saw the newly crowned king standing in his place of authority by the pillar at the Temple entrance. The commanders and trumpeters were surrounding him, and people from all over the land were rejoicing and blowing trumpets. Singers with musical instruments were leading the people in a great celebration.
Triune God, Sovereign Lord,
You are the Creator of the world and all that is therein. From one man You created all the nations throughout the whole earth. You decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and You determined their boundaries.
You have established the state of Mississippi. Her strength is in You.
We lift up Governor Phil Bryant and the executive branch of the state of Mississippi. Bless, guide, and protect them, we pray. Amen.
