Gracious Heavenly Father we come to You this morning praising Your name above all names, worshiping You in truth and spirit.
Lord, we come to You with a special prayer for peace this morning. We pray You will bring peace to America today. Help us to realize this country is made up of different cultures, and rather than allow conflict we should strive for understanding. Lord, we pray You would remove from public influence any person, or group of people that would have a purpose of causing civil unrest.
Lord, we pray for parents to once again return to parenting, to raise their children properly, to respect authority, to respect parents, to respect laws, and to respect one another.
Lord, we pray that all those who participate in today’s drug culture would have a change of heart, that You will enter into their conscience, their hearts and minds, giving them a hatred for the drugs that cause so much trouble, hate, crime, and sadness in this country, and the world.
Lord, help people understand that without drug users there can be no drug cartels, they would have no place to peddle their goods. Lord, help people to understand without drugs so many lives would be saved, from actual death to a destructive life style that destroys families.
Lord, we once again remember in our prayers the prisoners, the homeless, the helpless, the suffering, the orphans, the widows, and the lost of the world, that all would find safety, comfort, hope, parenting, companionship, and eternal life through the message You have given to the world through Your word.
Lord, forgive us our sins, help us to recognize them, control them, and eliminate them from our lives, walking each day in Your will, and way.
Lord, we pray for our daily bread, and accept all gifts from You graciously, humbly, and in full faith.
Lord, we thank You for all the great blessings You bestow upon us daily, and for the greatest blessing of all time, life, and life abundantly through Your Son in whose name we offer You this prayer. Amen.
