L: Whether we live in an apartment or a house;
if we reside in the suburbs or the city:
P: God tells us to pray for the places where we live.
L: Whether we are exiles or prisoners for the gospel;
if we are young, old, insider, outcast:
P: God says, ‘when you search for me, you will find me.’
L: Whether we have been wandering and lost;
or if we have lived in the same place all our lives:
P: God says, ‘I will gather you from all your places and bring you home.’
