• Father God, we offer our prayers before Your Throne of Grace for Senator Johnson. We thank You for touching Him and bringing healing to the areas of his frame that have been affected by this event. We ask You, too, to comfort his family and his staff, and to bless his medical team with Your wisdom as they continue to minister to his needs. We ask this in Jesus' Name, amen.
