TEN DAYS OF PRAYER FOR AMERICA

TL 7-1 THROUGH 7-10 TEN DAYS OF PRAYER FOR AMERICA13578954_1779017349009394_92059644_nChristians 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.

TEN DAYS OF PRAYER FOR AMERICA

TL 7-1 THROUGH 7-10 TEN DAYS OF PRAYER FOR AMERICA

ANOTHER YEAR OLDER AND GOD IS STILL STRONG

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!  You know, folks, we have a general election coming up!  We have some issues to be sure, but we have a GREAT GOD and He is listening to our prayers.  If I didn’t believe that, would I really be doing this?  Nope – I’d be raiding the fridge.

Let’s pray!

Dear Heavenly Father,  Today as we celebrate our country’s 240th birthday, we humbly come before You to say thank You for guiding America safely to this point.  You’ve kept us safe and sound thus far and we trust that You will see us through to the end.  Lord, we continue to pray for our country’s leaders.  There are too many to name individually, but we do pray You would intervene in the life of President Obama in his last days in office.  We pray for Vice President Joe Biden.  Keep Your hand on him, Lord.  Our Attorney General Loretta Lynch comes to mind, Lord.  Please guide her as she makes decisions that affect our country.  May we finally have a country where there are rights for ALL people, even Christians.  Everyone in America needs to have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  Father, may there finally be proper housing for our veterans.  It’s shameful that we open our arms to refugees but cannot provide housing for the ones who fought to ensure our safety.  Father, may someone find some common ground on the gun issue.  Please give our government wisdom about what kinds of guns we need and who should be using them.  Sometimes we are so frightened when we see the sickness and disease around us.  There’s hate and division by all sorts of methods.  Hatred by gender, economical status, social status, race, and sadly, religion.  There are people in another country who want us dead because we are Christians.  Radical Islamic terrorism is a threat to the entire world, including the U.S.A.  We’re scared, but we know, God, that this is all Your timing and we’ve read the back of the book and in the end, Father, YOU WIN!  Lord, WE THE PEOPLE ask for Your divine wisdom as we go to the voting booth in November.  Our country needs YOU.  We need Your guidance, direction and wisdom as we vote.  Holy Spirit, I personally invite You to go into that booth with me.  I ask that You help me as I make decisions about who should be in charge of America.  We love our country, Lord, but we love YOU more.  We trust You to help us through.  In Jesus’ precious and matchless Name we pray, Amen.
