Daily Prayer

Creator of Perfection

When You finished Your creative work, You declared, “It is very good.” Before mankind decided we could make our own rules, it was perfect and without any kind of blemish.

Since we took control, the earth has been transformed from perfection to chaos.

Father, we are lost, blinded and confused. There is no escape from the desperate situation our rebellion and stubborn refusal to acknowledge Your lordship has created.

My spirit is crushed as I learn more of the depths of depravity the “wisdom” of mankind is capable of reaching.

How desperate is our need? How scant our recognition of our failures? Reveal Yourself mighty in our daily lives. Shine Your light into the depths of our darkness.

Empower me…I want to be part of the solution but I’m helpless without You.

AMEN

Father in heaven

As Creator of life, You passionately love children from the time of conception forward.

But, almost daily we read of new attacks on our children’s health, safety, and innocence as evil abounds.

From the hatred and rage on display in the abortion wars to the AMA’s endorsement of mutilation of young people on the altar of gender fluidity to the teacher’s unions’ expressed desire to indoctrinate children as young as 5 years old on deviant sexual behavior, we are destroying our children.

In 2004, 9.6% of school-aged children were the targets of sexual advances by their teachers. Today, as we have greater access to cell phones an average of nearly one teacher or teacher’s aid per day is arrested for child sex crimes.

Holy Spirit restrain this evil from taking root among us.

Amen

Scripture: “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb, a reward.” Psalms 127:3

God of all Truth

Thank You for rescuing me from the quicksand and putting my feet on solid ground. I reach out to You today in great confidence Because nothing is impossible for You.

You made a path through the sea.
You created an army from a field of dry bones.
You rescued Your children from a fiery furnace.
You caused a donkey to speak.
You made the deaf hear, and the blind see.
You arose from a sealed tomb defeating the curse of death.

It is nothing for You to reach out Your mighty hand and rescue America from destruction. There are so many desperate for the hope You alone offer but are lost in darkness.

Reveal Yourself, “a lamp to our feet and a light to our path.” showing us the way home.

AMEN

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

Source of all Peace

At every hand, there is no peace…no joy. How have we fallen so far so quickly from Your shelter and blessing?

We have let the government impose a godless reign on the country. Our politicians, our media, and our elites have declared there is no place for You in our laws, our culture. our communities. You have in righteousness removed Your protections from us.

We are vulnerable to every deceitful and dark lie that presents itself as the solution. Abandoning Your guidance, we desperately seek answers from a lost and fallen world.

Please shine the light of truth on all the deceit and evil that has overtaken us.

Lord, there are many blinded and confused. Please apply Your mercy and rescue us from the darkness that blinds us.

AMEN

Scripture: “Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good. “ Romans 12:21

Merciful Father

As fallen human beings, we have pretty much made a hot mess of everything beautiful You gave us. I am brokenhearted to know how I have taken Your gifts for granted and assumed I was entitled to Your blessing. You reached down and rescued me from myself.

Now, I am surrounded by lost and ungrateful people and the fabric of our society is being ripped apart by jealousy, personal egos, and anger at the failures we’ve made of our lives.

Father, You are the source of all purpose peace, and joy. We need You to re-establish an understanding of the forgiveness available through Christ and a humility that will allow us to consider others first…regardless of our own needs.

Awaken across America and fresh breeze of community and unity in You.

AMEN

Scripture: “Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.” Philippians 2:3

King of Kings

By Your spoken word, the universe was created and You oversee the smallest details of life. There is nothing outside Your notice.

You divinely inspired our founders to bring forth America as a fresh wind of liberty for the human race.

But we have allowed this shining city of hope for all mankind to become sullied by corruption. Our political system at every level is filled with selfish and arrogant people of both parties. They serve themselves without regard for “We the people”.

Our sickness is so deeply embedded, it seems beyond our political system to repair.

Lord, only You can heal our country…we’re in need of a heart transplant. Please restore our sense of community…and let it begin in my heart.

AMEN

Scripture: “Cruel rulers are not your allies, those who make oppressive laws. They conspire against the blameless and condemn to death the innocent. But the Lord will protect me, and my God will shelter me.” Psalms 94:20-22

Source of all Truth

Thank You for being my never changing North Star, guiding me in the way of truth and honor. Without Your wisdom to guide me, I would wander lost in darkness. You revealed the way of security and peace.

But, Father, all around me have become dependent upon human wisdom and cannot understand the chaos that seems to be everywhere they turn.

But the greatest human minds, the most skilled Cray computer programmers, the wisest Ivy league professors the most admired philosophers have no understanding
without You. If we learn upon the brightest among us to cure our depravity we are indeed lost.

You alone are the wellspring of truth and wisdom. Guide me in the way of blessing and help me show others the way.

AMEN

Scripture: “Don’t let anyone fool you by using senseless arguments. These arguments may sound wise, but they are only human teachings. They come from the powers of this world and not from Christ. “ Colossians 2:8

Creator of Life

I know You’re brokenhearted for all those being murdered in America’s inner cities.

Gangs, cartel members and ruthless essentially fatherless young men are destroying innocent lives. Black-on-black homicides have more than doubled in the last 12 months and the savagery continues unabated.

As a result of our loss of respect for the intrinsic value of life, we are seeing unprecedented numbers of innocent people being attacked and killed.

This anger and violence are the product of an American society that has lost its way.

Life is no longer sacred. From the womb to the baby carriage to the schools, to the streets, we deny the sanctity of life at every level.

We seek answers in human wisdom, but only You can end the carnage and bring peace.

AMEN

Scripture: Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Romans 12:17

Author of Scripture

You are the source of all hope and redemption for us. Your word is full of promises for
our well-being.

You promise abundant life. You promise to meet all our needs. You promise to protect
us from evil. You promise to guide us through the storms of life. You have never
failed. All Your promises are fulfilled in Christ.

Thank You for the assurance we can have in Your love for us. You have our well being
before You constantly.

Father, You are the only solution to the issues we face. Involve Yourself in our day-to-
day lives and show us the mighty power of heaven.

To which we say together, “Amen” agreeing with all Your children. “So be it!”

AMEN

Scripture: “For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding ‘Yes!’ And through Christ, our ‘Amen’ (which means ‘Yes’) ascends to God for his
glory.” II Corinthians 1:20

Father of love and unity

I am eternally grateful that You do not play favorites. You have invited everyone to join You at the family table. You offer a banquet feast for all who will join You.
But today in America, we are divided so badly, mutual respect seem impossible to achieve.

The enemy has been so successful in sowing seeds of distrust and anger among us that pursuing our national motto “From many, one” seems a fool’s errand.

I know the truth, yet sometimes I find it very difficult to remember we don’t wrestle against those with whom we disagree, but with the prince of darkness who has blinded them.

Without compromise, let me be a peacekeeper and team builder in these dark times.

AMEN
