Gracious Heavenly Father, we come to You this morning praying for forgiveness of our sins. We pray for America today, praying for her safety from enemies, both foreign and domestic. We pray for protection from those who would destroy our people, our economy, and our faith. We pray for protection from domestic forces that would destroy our very souls, and the souls of our children, and grandchildren.
Lord, we pray that You will put it into the hearts of Your children, here in America, and world-wide to stand against all forms of evil. Lord, we pray You will strengthen us as we stand against those who represent the evil one. Lord, we pray You will strengthen us as we stand against those who would shout down Your Name, who would stand against Your truth, even those of our own country, our own leaders, and often our own family, both physical, and those claiming to be Your adopted child, our brother, or sister in Christ.
Lord, let us not forget the plight of King David as he had to stand against a foreign enemy, Goliath, a domestic leader (and his own father in law) King Saul, and his own son, as we face these same challenges, in these end times. Lord, prepare our hearts for the great battle of defending the word, out loud and forcibly has You have commanded. Lord, we pray for those brothers, and sisters who are weak of heart, that You will strengthen them, and give them courage to speak up in defense of their faith, and Your word.
Lord, we pray You will be with the traveler this week end, making this weekend an accident free weekend. Lord, we pray for the man and woman in uniform who defend our nation abroad, against foreign powers, and domestically who protect us against domestic criminals. Lord, protect us against our leaders, and we pray You will raise up Godly leaders who will govern according to Your precepts, and not popular opinion.
Lord, we thank You for all the great blessings You have bestowed upon us, we repent our sins, we receive in full faith our daily bread, both physical, and spiritual, and we stand upon Your promises, which are reliable, and Your plan which cannot be broken.
Lord, we pray for the homeless, that they might receive shelter and provisions. We pray for the widow, that she will receive comfort and companionship from Your word. We pray for the orphan, that they will receive truth, power, and provisions from You through Your representative here on earth, Your church. Lord we pray for the prisoner, that You will protect them from evil, give them a voice to speak out against evil, and teach Your word while “inside”.
Thank You Lord, for the blessing of eternal life, and we pray all this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Cast Your Cares on Him
1 Peter 5:7casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 8Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.9 but resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.
1 Peter 1:13
Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.
