God of Absolute Truth

I am astonished at how quickly America has abandoned Your absolute perfection for the fallible wisdom of cruel, selfish and depraved men.

We abandon our marriage vows without cause…we abandon our families to “find ourselves”…we abandon our moral values to chase pleasure…we abandon our honor to avoid the consequences of our choices. Corruption and deceit have become our preferred tactics in our pursuit of power and glory. In an unbelievably short time America has gone from “The Shining City on the Hill” to the depths of compromise and depravity.

Father, for the sake of the remnant, restore truth and sanity to our land. Bring justice to our communities. Help me be honorable in all I do. I am comforted to know You always get it right. I sleep well knowing You’ve got this.


Scripture: “Be serious! Be alert! Your adversary the Devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour.” 1 Peter 5:8

Dear Heavenly Provider

Forgive me for living in fear, defeated by the decisions of our government, the mocking voices in the media and the liberal morality of our culture. Forgive me for my lack of boldness…for feeling like “fish out of water”, or for “not belonging”. I do not condone the principles or practices of this world and while I’m here, I wish to be a “fisher of men” as Jesus commissioned His Disciples.

Please help me to be Your “Light”, shining in this very dark world in which we live. May I be found faithful to the task and opportunities You provide for me to share the “Good News” of Your forgiveness. Use me to present Your salvation to all who cross my path. Always be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about your hope.


Scripture: “…Always be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about the hope that is in you.” I Peter 3:15
