Christians know that they are only strong as long as they take the time to kneel… in prayer to God through Christ Jesus our Lord. We believe that the time we take to pray is the most important time spent in our day. Would you try to drive your car out-of-state after it’s dinged at you to let you know it needs fuel? Um… nope. You’d pull into a gas station and fill ‘er up! Prayer is spiritual fuel for our souls. It is essential for our spiritual wellbeing. God wants to hear from us and He looks forward to hearing from us on a daily basis – for me it’s like a pray without ceasing thing… moment by moment. It’s how I roll…
God sees how the wheels are coming off our world. He is also in control, so America, we need to stand as a united front to the rest of the world, and the world needs to see that we are strong and our strength comes from God. The one true God. There’s only one.
Let’s pray for peace and healing in America:
Dear Heavenly Father, We acknowledge You in all our ways and humbly ask for healing and peace in America. There is division like we’ve never seen before, but we know that You are watching and You are more than able to work on our behalf and heal our hurting land. We know that in this life we will probably not all hold hands and sing Kum-ba-ya, but we pray that somehow You would show us how to combine Republican ideology with Democratic ideology so that somewhere we can find some real middle ground and common sense solutions to the issues we need to fix in our country. We need Your wisdom, Your Word, and Your will to be done in our lives individually so that it will be done in our nation. Help us to begin to heal instead of fighting more. Please Lord, grant us Your peace and Your love in America. Make us the people You want us to be and guide us as we remember the golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Help us to treat everyone with dignity and respect even if we disagree with them about other issues. We want to show genuine and sincere concern for our neighbors regardless. We can only do this perfectly with Your help everyday. May we learn well how to sharpen iron in this journey called life. We ask these things in the altogether lovely Name of Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior, Amen.
More peace, less war. More love, less hate. More healing, less hurting. More unity, less division. Yes, Lord, yes! 🙂
