Keeper and Protector of my Soul

You alone are the source of my salvation. In You alone will I seek forgiveness and purpose. Your promises are sure, and in You I find hope.

I am reminded every day in the headlines and on TV just how far my country has drifted from the days of my youth. We have become hedonistic, self-centered, and deeply divided. We seek to find our way, but all the road signs have been removed and we wander lost in desperate need of guidance.

King David said, “Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path.”

Please light our way back to You.  As You show the way, I will follow and lift Your banner high for others.

AMEN

Scripture: “Your word is a lamp or my feet and a light on my path.”
Psalms 119;105

Abba, Father

Your gracious forgiveness and acceptance of me into the Family of God is amazing. To know You’re never too busy to listen to me and You care about me, overwhelms me

Even though the world around me is changing every day. Even though our nation is rushing towards destruction, I find comfort each new day in Your word.

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. We will not fear though the earth be changed…”

Lord, You still rule from heaven. Please hear my cry and calm our troubled waters.

Use me today to represent Your truth to a divided and struggling people. May they see Christ’s love in me today.

AMEN

Scripture: “You are my hiding place!  You protect me from trouble and You put songs in my heart because You saved me.”

Psalms 32:7

Creator and Lord of the Universe

I ask, “How could I ever have the privilege of speaking directly to You?” You replied, “Seek me through the cross.”

I did and You welcomed me into Your family…and praying has become my source of peace and joy.

Even when I am distressed and the weight of this world presses down on me…even in the darkest moments, You comfort me. Today I am deeply concerned about my country.

It seems every day our most influential voices find more depraved ways to mock right and embrace wrong. Please shine Your light into the darkness where they hide.

Please give me the wisdom, the strength and the opportunity to speak Your truth to power today.

AMEN
Scripture: “God blesses those people who refuse evil advice and won’t follow sinners or join in sneering at God.”
Psalms 1:1

Lord of Heaven and Earth

It is impossible to fathom why You would grant me an audience with You anytime I call, but I lift my voice to You confident that You are listening and that You care.

I cry out to You now, so ashamed of my complicity in what is happening in America today. We fearlessly mock Your word. We fearlessly mock Your Son.

We arrogantly believe we can manage without You…and by my silence I have allowed much of this to go unchallenged.

Forgive me for my silence and renew my voice. Send You breath of life again across this country. Revive Your bride and awaken in us a renewed commitment to represent Your Kingdom well at every opportunity.

AMEN

Scripture: “Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts.”
II Peter 3:3

Messiah

Crucified, given up for dead…But today the streets ring with joy…given up for dead shout it from the rooftop…“HE IS RISEN”…OOH! What a day. Death has been defeated, my sins are forgiven and my future has been secured. It is hard to believe…but, You told me so I know it’s true.

But Father on this day of rejoicing my heart is heavy for the millions of Americans living in darkness and believing lies while they mock Your truths and disrespect Your son.

Send the mighty wind of Your Spirit.  Sweep me up in it and let me proclaim Your goodness and Your power to all my friends and family.

Your name reigns supreme.
AMEN

Scripture:
“Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?
I Corinthians 15:55

Source and Sustainer of Peace

In a world so full of competing noises and loud, angry voices, my soul is quieted by the knowledge that You can hear me through all the clutter. It is comforting to know my voice reaches Your ears and Your heart.

America today is being destroyed by lies, envy and escapism creating deep divisions among us. We are speeding down a highway and the bridge is out ahead. If we don’t stop and change course the carnage will be devastating.

There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is destruction.

Please light our way so that we can avoid the disaster that awaits us on our current course. Let me be a beacon to show the way to safety.

AMEN

Scripture:
“For the leaders of the people have misled them. They have led them down a path to destruction.”
Isaiah 9:16

jesus, christ, god-3279880.jpg

Creator of all Life

I owed a debt I couldn’t pay; You paid a debt You didn’t owe and we were reconciled at Calvary. Today You hear my every prayer and care about my every concern…Thank You is insufficient to express my eternal gratitude.

America has become so dysfunctional…we have believed the big lie. Please restore our sight so we might receive wisdom from above.

Help us understand the futility of chasing after secular solutions to our heart and soul issues.

Turn our hearts and eyes to Calvary and the unbelievable forgiveness that awaits us there. Please give me the resolve and the wisdom to engage this lost world before it is too late.

AMEN

Scripture:
“He (the antichrist) will use every kind of wicked deception to fool those who are on their way to destruction because they refused to believe the truth that would have saved them.”
II Thessalonians 2:10

Father of Light and Truth

Your love continually lifts me to new heights…Your faithfulness inspires great confidence. I have learned how much You care about the things that concern me.

You challenge us in Your word not to be like a foolish man who builds his house on sand. But that is exactly what America is doing and our house is nearing collapse.

Please restore our foundation. Place us once again upon the solid rock of Your truth and heal our homes.

Give me the wisdom and the courage to be a part of a great awakening in the soul of America.

AMEN

Scripture:
“Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house upon the rock.”
Matthew 7:23

cross, jesus, christ-3254876.jpg

Messiah

You created the universe…and You care for me? How could that be? You love me and have adopted me into Your family… all because of the cross. I am a child of the King. AMAZING!

I am brokenhearted today for America. My country has decided we don’t need you any longer…we have 5G WIFI…the answer to every problem. But, the more connected our social media becomes, the more foolish we seem.

Your church seeks to be “relevant” and has lost its power. Oh, Lord, revive Your true church and give them the wisdom and the boldness to speak the truth.

Restore joy and purpose to the land…heal our divisions and bring us together.

Forgive me when I fail You in this calling. Pick me up, encourage me and send me back into the battle.

AMEN

Scripture: “Professing to be wise they became fools.”
Romans 1:22

Author of my Salvation

I am continually overwhelmed with the knowledge that I am privileged to call You “Abba, Father”. You always hear me when I pray.

I lift my voice to You today seeking Your help because America is stumbling in a darkness of her own creation. Believing social media hype, abandoning truth, and rejecting the way You would lead us, we are hoping the latest gadget from Silicon Valley will fix everything.

We refuse to acknowledge we need You in order to find joy and meaning in life.

Revive Your church and launch a great awakening across the land. Rescue us from ourselves. Empower me to be a lighthouse in the darkness. Give me the opportunity to demonstrate Your love and forgiveness to those in great need.

AMEN

Scripture:
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. It is written,
‘He is the one who catches them in their craftiness.’
I Corinthians 3:19
