My Personal God and Savior

May today to be the first day of the rest of my life. For the rest of my life, I want to speak Your language to America. So many are lost in depravity in our culture and need to hear and see Your truth. I want to speak “Jesus with integrity

I want to speak “Love”. I want to speak “Hope”. I want to speak “Forgiveness”.

I want to speak “Peace”. I want to speak “Life”. I want to speak “Unity”.

Help me, by my actions and attitudes, speak this new language to others.

Help me live my life in such a way that in my community Your truth will resonate. Like a stone thrown in a pond may the ripples of my new language reach all across my community.


Scripture: “May he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen” Hebrews 13:21

Perfect Parent

You have challenged me and nurtured me…disciplined me and encouraged me. You met every need and protected me. I am so grateful You’ve often told me “No”.

In America, our culture has somehow decided the word “No” is uncaring and hard. The truth is that more often “No” is driven by love and concern while “Yes” is too often permissive and driven by a need to be seen as compassionate. “Yes” is too often simply the path of least resistance.

Father, while I have too often pushed back against Your standards…it is obvious to me that Your “No” is much more loving than the “Yes” of a promiscuous and rebellious world. Teach me to trust Your heart in all things and stand firm in spite of the world’s deceptive lures.


Scripture: “No discipline seems enjoyable at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it yields the fruit of peace and righteousness to those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11

Giver and Sustainer of Life

To know You personally is to totally and completely trust You. When Your Spirit entered me and built a fire for all to see what a difference You have made, I have no choice but to worship You.

When I realize how unworthy I am of the price You paid to rescue me from the darkness, I am filled with wonder and praise for Your name. There is no moment when Your majesty doesn’t overwhelm me. Teach my lips to praise Your goodness at every opportunity.

Father, please light a prairie fire of worship all across America. May the spark of Your Spirit sweep across the land. Awaken Your church…magnify our voices to make Your glory known.


Scripture: “Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.” Hebrews 13:15

God Who Answers Prayers

The power of prayer has seldom been fully unleashed against the Prince of Darkness…and it is a frightening thing to consider defying his awesome power.

At three critical time in our history, at the Constitutional Convention…in the midst of the civil war and D-Day, the invasion of Normandy, WWII, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln and FDR called America to prayer…and each time God answered our prayers and protected us from being overwhelmed by the darkness.

Today this same enemy…this same darkness is threatening us…and, as throughout history, only You can prevail against the evil attempting to remove this last bastion of liberty from the earth.

Lord, fill us with the courage to face this fearsome threat. Instill in us the faith to stand in the gap. Hear our prayers Almighty God and rescue us.


Scripture: “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” Hebrews 4:16

Keeper of my Soul

You are more faithful than any parent could be. You love us more than anyone else could. You guarantee my eternity with You…and You are never too busy to listen.

I despair for America. Our entertainment industries…our streaming services…our social media all bombard us constantly with gratuitous violence and tell us we are no more than our sexual identity. We hear over and over that sexual conquest is the ultimate goal in life. We are buying a counterfeit version of love.

We’ve fallen so far that only You can lift us from the mire.

Revive Your church and send a great awakening across America…restore a purity that loves deeply, restores relationships, and overcomes what divides us.

Help me stand firm…to love and care for others as You love and care for me.


Scripture: “Marriage should be honored by all and the marriage bed kept pure. for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.” Hebrews 13:4

Creator of Heaven and Earth

Being able to share my concerns at Your throne and know that You hear and that You care is an amazing blessing. Thank You for this privilege.

I come to You today with a heart burdened for America. She is adrift in a sea of deception and evil and cannot find her way. Please come among us and show Yourself mighty. Reveal the lies and hidden agendas of those in power: agendas full of hatred for Your Son.

It seems impossible for You to remain tolerant much longer. Destroy the evil taking root in America. Help me represent Your loving kindness and share Your truth with all I meet today.
