Father of Fellowship

In Your genius, we were designed to live together in the community. You said, “It’s not good for man to be alone…” and You added a woman beside him for companionship.

The need each of us has to be loved and accepted…to fellowship together…to develop families and friends is designed in us. Our mental health and the health of our communities flourish when we establish and maintain caring bonding relationships with one another.

In America, Silicon Valley and social media have broken down our sense of shared humanity and created empty, impersonal, artificial relationships which cannot be substituted for the reality of family and real friends.

Father, please help America rediscover and value real personal relationships and rebuild the true community. May I learn to demonstrate the healing power of loving one another without condition.

AMEN

Scripture: “Most important of all, you must sincerely love each other, because love wipes away many sins.” I Peter 4:8

Cornerstone and Protector of the Church

The American culture is becoming actively anti-Christian. Today’s woke corporate community is increasingly hostile to the Christian community.

One day soon to say, “Our hope is in Christ alone” will be considered “hate speech”. You told us that the world hated Jesus and would one day hate us too. That day has come…Your prophetic words are becoming our daily reality. Your church has always flourished when persecuted…but America’s church has never been faced with the hostilities she is currently facing.

I pray today for the courage I need to represent You boldly. As Your faithful, I must learn to drop to my knees and engage in the spiritual battle raging for the soul of America.
Without Your intervention, Your bride cannot survive.

AMEN

Scripture: “If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me first. If you were of the world, it would love you as its own. But the world hates you, because you are not of the world…” John 15:18-19a

Destroyer of Lies

I’m grateful Your Scriptures are without error and provide us the way to know You fully and to understand Your love and truth. Your light shines on our darkness showing us the path we should follow.

I am fearful for America’s future because we are no longer simply rejecting Your guidance…but are now so distorting the character and unambiguous truth of Scripture, twisting it to make it say the opposite of the clear intent of Your word.

The voices of false prophets declare You endorse abortion…You embrace sexual immorality…they have a better plan for the family…You encourage unsustainable levels of debt…that our marriage vows are not binding and any slick lawyer can untie the knot.

America has become a blasphemous people. By Your Spirit, restore truth to our voices.

AMEN

Scripture: “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.” Matthew 7:15

God Above all Gods

America’s moving at such a frantic pace and I’m living a life without a moment to collect my thoughts so it is easy…accomplished without intent…to get out in front of my skies and fail to wait for Your solution to my issue.

Oh, I pray (quickly) then rush on with my life without Your guidance. Always in a hurry.

When I do, my life becomes entangled with the world…I accept the world’s input and that, of course, insures I am pursuing the wrong priorities…the wrong agenda…for the wrong reasons.

It is when I take a deep breath and allow You to speak to me from Your word, through godly friends and family, that I fully appreciate Your wisdom and Your perfect plan for my life.

AMEN

Scripture: “He says, “Stop your striving and recognize that I am God!” Psalms 46:10a

Protector of the Meek

I’m just learning what it means to be truly courageous…what it means to be a courageous person of faith as we stand in the gap for America.

We are all called to be “meek”. A most misunderstood concept of bravery. The greatest picture of meekness…of pure courage in human history occurred when Jesus was tried before Pilate and refused to bow. Pilate reminded Jesus that he held Jesus’ life in his hands. Without flinching…without being macho, without threatening, Jesus simply said, “You have no power my Father hasn’t given you.”

I must learn to stand unafraid of the world’s threats. Teach me to trust You alone…and to lead others to have the same courage standing before the evil we face. Encourage us in the darkness.

AMEN

Scripture: “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5 & “But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace and prosperity.” Psalms 37:11

Lord of Nature

We are blessed with rich soil, abundant fruit, and grain, and a moderate climate.  Our Thanksgiving tables overflow with Your bounty.

But we are being warned Your bounty may not continue.  The coming famine is predicted across America.

Continued drought, the disruptions of war, shortages of farming supplies, and distribution problems will plague the entire world….and, there will be hunger in America, unlike anything we’ve seen in our lifetime.

As devastating as this food shortage may be…there is a more troubling famine affecting our country.  We suffer a famine of spirit.  We are angry, divided, depressed, and fearful…there is no joy in our communities.

Lord, we need manna from heaven to feed our souls more than we need bread for our bodies.  Father, send Your mighty power to relieve the famine of our spirits.

AMEN

Scripture:  “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord GOD, “When I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread or a thirst for water, But rather for hearing the words of the LORD. Amos 8:11

My Father, Creator

I am so blessed. I live in the greatest country on earth. I have never gone truly hungry. I have a comfortable home, a great family, a loving God who has never left me alone for a moment.

I have every reason to give thanks to Almighty God for the life He has given me here and for eternity.

When life has thrown me a curve or knocked me down Jesus has always lifted me up…put my feet on solid ground and straightened my path.

Today…and every day I give thanks for a fresh new day the challenges and blessings.

I have learned the best way I can express my gratitude for all my Creator has done is to be obedient to His call and share his name.

AMEN

Scripture: “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” Psalms 100:4

Lord of Encouragement

When I am lost or frightened or lonely, You give me courage. When the right choice is daunting, when the right path seems dark and lonely or I am facing uncomfortable options, You encourage me to make the difficult…even unpopular choices.

Thank You for always drawing the best out of my timidity!

Lord, America has become a frightened, cowardly society…unwilling to take a stand for the truth if the opposition objects and threatens. Medical professionals, the intellectual elites, and those whose livelihood depends on pleasing the powerful have abandoned character for the path of least resistance and are leading us to destruction.

Help me find the character to lead with courage…stand for what’s right and defend the truth in the darkness that threatens to overwhelm America.

AMEN

Scripture: “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” II Timothy 1:7

Head Master

America’s political, medical, and educational elites have destroyed the futures of our public school-aged children. The results of standardized achievement testing just reported show staggering losses in our children’s proficiency in both math and reading.

No first-world country can succeed if its adult citizens do not understand the basic principles of these two critical areas.

Perhaps worse, a population that cannot think critically when faced with the basic life choices an informed electorate routinely faces, lacks the ability to make wise decisions affecting their future.

We know that Your wisdom is much preferred to man’s knowledge. We call out to You today, if we turn back to You, please give us the wisdom to guide us into tomorrow. Please provide America wisdom from above as the enemy’s darkness threatens our future.

AMEN

Scripture: “Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God—who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly—and it will be given to him.” James 1:5

Master Teacher

Thank You for all the dedicated Home School families committed to giving their children a sound education based on a Biblical worldview.

America’s public schools have…sometimes with surprising malice…worked diligently to separate children from their parents’ influence. Home School children, by any measurable cultural or academic standard far exceed the performance of their contemporaries.

Father, I ask You to bless the Home School communities across America. Most of these families have assumed the challenge of raising their families on a single income to ensure their children are well educated with both the knowledge of truth and the capacity to solve problems using critical thinking skills.

America’s future is brighter the larger the contingent of Home Schooled adults in her population. Bless these families that they might be a blessing to America.

AMEN

Scripture: “These words I am commanding you today must be kept in mind, and you must teach them to your children and speak of them as you sit in your house, as you walk along the road, as you lie down, and as you get up.” Deuteronomy 6:6-7
