Creator of Life and Giver of Hope

I cannot imagine life without the hope You give. All around me are people desperate for escape from a life without any meaning beyond their own ease and pleasure. Their every new experience only leads to more hopelessness. Hedonism is not purpose…ease is not fulfillment.

Lord Your are the answer…only You can meet our deepest needs. Everything else leaves broken promises and emptiness.

Have mercy on those who have been blinded by the glitter and glamour of this world.

Send Your Holy Spirit to reveal the lies and deceit of the enemy and show us the way back into the sunlight of Your blessings.

Help me see with Your eyes and love with Your heart…I desire to be part of the solution…not simply a silent bystander.

AMEN

Scripture: “For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.” I John 2:16

God of Compassion

You have shown Your love and forgiveness throughout history. You have demonstrated Your mercy towards me over and over.

I ask You to show Your mercy to those so tragically impacted by the situation at our southern border. Those coming from such terrible situations hoping to find a better life. Those in America devastated by the flow of drugs destroying lives and families. The children used as pawns by the coyotes, mercilessly abandoned once they’ve served their purpose.

The disrespect for our immigration laws is encouraging our society to resort to mob rule. It is a tragedy beyond words.

Only You can rescue those trapped in this cycle of hopelessness.

Help me show compassion for all those suffering through this crisis.

AMEN

Scripture: “But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.” Psalm 86:15

Creator of Life

Your compassion for the innocent and most vulnerable among us is unchallenged.

I come to You with a heavy heart for the infants and children in America whose
innocence and purity are being stolen from them by selfish adults who care more about their agendas than they do about the young and vulnerable.

Restore a time when elder generations sacrificed for the younger, committed to their safety and their futures as a matter of first priorities. That is no longer true.

Raise up a protective barrier and restore a time when childhood was about learning and growing and loving. A time when predators were restricted from using children for their own agendas.

With You the miraculous is possible. Protect the innocent children from the ravages of our sinful and fallen nature.

AMEN

Scripture: “And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them… And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them. Mark 10:13;16

Father of Forgiveness

I am frightened today, not for my security in You for You have given me both peace and purpose…but for my country.

We are becoming a country of mob rule. Bullying and intimidation seems the order of the day for those not getting their way. From BLM to Antifa, from abortion rights to open borders, from teacher’s unions to gender fluidity, we’ve gone insane and seem to believe “Might makes right”.

It seems the darkness is winning on every front. You are our only hope for redemption; both personally and as a community.

We need a fresh breeze of Your Holy Spirit, Save us from destruction.

Please begin in my heart today…erase my fear and replace it with Your fervor for the lost.

AMEN

Scripture: “This is what the LORD says. “Stop at the crossroads and look around. Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it. Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls. But you reply, ‘No, that’s not the road we want!” Jeremiah 6:16

Lord of Encouragement

When I am lost or frightened or lonely, You give me courage. When the right choice is daunting, when 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, 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 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

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 worlds 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

Everlasting Father

I approach You today full of awe and wonder at Your grace and mercy towards me. Even though I fail You often, I come to You today boldly, knowing my sins have been forgiven through Your sacrifice at Calvary. To say, “Thank You” is so inadequate.

I am sorry for the way America has not only abandoned Your guidelines for a fruitful and meaningful life…but we also openly flaunt our sins. We mock and degrade Your Son.

We have taken Your blessings on our land for granted. When our leaders flippantly say, “God bless America” it is blasphemy.

But, please don’t abandon Your remnant…we seek Your face. Empower us to do mighty things in Your name. Awaken us to the power we have been granted in Christ.

AMEN

Scripture: “…you have overcome them because greater is He who is in you than he that is in the world.” I John 4:4b

Lord of All

You are the light of my life…without You as my guide, I could not find my way. But in today’s culture it is easier to remain silent and simply follow the crowd.

The pressure to conform…to be accepted…can be overwhelming. It is easier to be modern and “Progressive” in America today, but that would mean I must abandon the truth and declare with Peter of old, “I never knew Him.”

Forgive me for the times I’ve chosen the fleeting praise of men instead of speaking up for what is right.

Father, help me to stand firm in the truth even though it may cost me. Strengthen me and give me the courage to stand in the gap against the wokeness enveloping America today.

AMEN

Scripture:  “Wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many that go in by it. Narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life…” Matthew 7:13-14

Source of all Truth

I am calmed by the knowledge that You’re in charge. I am secure knowing You’ve adopted me into Your eternal family by the sacrifice of Christ at Calvary.

But, if I’m honest, when I see the TV news; when I must deal with the prices of everything climbing beyond reach; when I recognize the power of the social media aligned against the truth; when I experience the divisions among us…I am overwhelmed by the tidal wave of American dysfunction.

But, even as the fear threatens to paralyze me, I remember that though I am not capable of staunching the approaching darkness on my own…I am more than a conqueror when You guide my words and actions.

It is Your presence in me that makes victory possible.

AMEN

Scripture: “Yet, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” Romans 8:37

Lord of All

It is a blessing to know You’re in charge and to see the enemy throw a temper tantrum when his freedom to kill babies may be thwarted. It thrills the hearts of Your church when You show up.

But the threats to our children continue to be ramped up. Influential voices in our society and within the AMA have publicly endorsed abuse and mutilation of children as young as pre-schoolers in the name of gender transition.

Our public schools continue to deny parents a voice concerning appropriate curriculum for their children grades K-12.

The attack on our children’s innocence is unrelenting.

Teach us how to get on our knees and fight. Show us the power that righteous prayer has before Your throne.

AMEN

Scripture: “The prayer of a righteous people is powerful and effective.” James 5:16
