1 John

New Testament Reference

Creator of all Beauty and Order

Your handiwork throughout the universe declares Your glory. I can never thank You adequately nor repay the debt I owe for my salvation.

We have made a hot mess of the gift of liberty You have given us. We have so gravely damaged America it cannot be repaired by politicians or political parties. We have suffered a massive heart failure that only You can repair.

Before time began You had a plan…as we honor those who have fallen in battle in our defense, we must acknowledge that their sacrifice pales in comparison to the sacrifice You made when Christ hung on a cross between heaven and earth that we might have our hearts restored.

Please turn our faces to heaven in repentance. Forgive us and heal our land…begin with my heart!

AMEN

Scripture: “Christ is the sacrifice that takes away our sins…” I John 2:2

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

Source of all Truth

I come before You today awed by Your Power and humbled by the access You’ve given me.

America is being overcome by darkness and being blinded by lies. In our own power, we are helpless to change the course of our country. But with You…I ask in full confidence of Your ability to rescue us from our distress. “Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world”.

Show Yourself mighty among us and show us the way back to peace and harmony with one another.

Use me today to advance Your kingdom. Guide me and give me the opportunity to speak truth into the darkness that surrounds us.

AMEN

Scripture:
“…greater is He who is in you than he that is in the world.”
