Infant Messiah

Today is the day of our salvation. Christ the King has come into the world to rescue the lost and dying. His birth, life, crucifixion and resurrection destroyed the enemy’s plans and his power to intimidate us into submission…today’s celebration marks the birth of an infant, but much more, the birth of our eternal freedom.

He came…not as a conquering ruler, but as a baby born of lowly parents without noble lineage or wealth or fame, yet He is the only hope of all mankind. Kneel before His eternal throne…shout His praises…join the everlasting chorus glorifying His name….Jesus Christ, our hope for all eternity. Without Him we are horribly lost…with Him we are gloriously redeemed.

“Thank You” is totally insufficient. Merry Christmas!

AMEN

Scripture: “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6

Lord of Heaven and Earth

Holy is your Name and great are You to be praised!! I come to you this day with a heavy heart, watching America and her culture disintegrating and becoming a 21st Babylon rocked by division, deception, and corruption.

As your child, I sense we have, like the Israelites of old, been “exiled” to a place of hedonism and debauchery. Teach me…teach Your children, to pray for your mercy, forgiveness, and long-suffering towards America. Restore us to You, our first love. We are hopelessly lost. Please call us back to the faith and moral compass of our founding forefathers. Shed Your Light of Salvation on our Nation, so that millions might believe and be saved.

Use me to accomplish Your purposes.

AMEN

Light to the Nations

I thank you for your Word. You spoke truth into my future.

700 years before Christ, the Prophet Isaiah quoted Jesus saying, “I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness. I will also hold you by the hand and watch over you, and I will appoint you…as a light to the nations.”

You’ve kept Your word. And Jesus said, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness…” My prayer is that our Nation would again look to Jesus…receive His light and return Your Word.

May I be a light unto the world like the old children’s chorus: “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine…” Please shine through me into this dark world that many would come to know Jesus.

AMEN

Source of my Eternal Melody

This time of year, many hearts are lifted as we are surrounded by songs of love and forgiveness…songs of joy and hope. Uplifting songs, familiar songs…songs that bring back memories of family and friends.

Many are experiencing a white Christmas…many more are dreaming of one “…just like the ones I used to know…” The new fallen snow makes everything look clean and innocent. It masks for a moment, what lies covered under the purity of the fresh snow. This time of year is a reminder of the cleanliness and forgiveness You have provided me. You’ve put a melody in my heart that is new every morning…a melody of a restored future, hope and security.

Christmas reminds us Your forgiveness is available to all who will receive it.

AMEN

Scripture: ““Come now, let’s settle this,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow…” Isaiah 1:18

Source of Unambiguous Truth

Your truth is unassailable. It is above all human thought.

When I hear the “facts” spun by mankind to justify their “me first” self-centeredness, I can be lulled by their falsehoods clothed in deceptive language. But if I look beyond their robocall persistence to You, You keep my feet planted on solid ground. A recent euphemism used by forces pushing hard for abortion is, “Abortion is another word for mercy”. This twisted misuse of common language can easily shroud the truth in darkness. Ignore the barbaric actions required to kill the baby. Focus on the impediment to the mother’s career or freedom that was eliminated.

Please forgive me those times when my silence has aided the forces aligned against children. Give me courage to stand in the gap for the innocent.

AMEN

Scripture: “Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, my thoughts and my ways are higher than yours.” Isaiah 55:9

My Solid Ground

You’ve placed my feet on solid ground…the enemy cannot deceive me. I’m secure in You.

But Father, so many around me are fearful of the truth. They grasp at every deception to build a fantasy world full of safe spaces, censorship, false history, fake science, dark propaganda, substance abuse, and virtual reality that allows them to avoid the desperate state of their souls. Such willful blindness is destroying America. Without You she is lost and the hope of humanity dies with her. I feel overwhelmed by the darkness surrounding me. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and use me to shine a light on the deception threatening the eternal souls of the human race.

I want to make a difference for You.

AMEN

Scripture: “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I; send me!” Isaiah 6:8

Righteous Judge

From the beginning, You have been just in all Your judgments. Your justice is guided by grace. I know because I received Your pardon…Your Son paid the penalty for me.

We are each guilty, but in Your love, You provide restoration. We must each admit our personal failures.

Your justice does not extend to a favored demographic group but is available to anyone who acknowledges their need and seeks Your face.

Today, by our arrogant rejection of Your grace…and by our reliance upon human “wisdom” to redefine justice have so distorted the term as to make it meaningless in our courts.

Lord, restore justice in America. Protect the poor and downtrodden. Shine Your light of truth on those using the courts for their own gain. Teach me to love Your justice and to proclaim Your wisdom to all.

Amen

Scripture: “Learn to do what is right! Promote justice! Give the oppressed reason to celebrate! Take up the cause of the orphan! Defend the rights of the widow!” Isaiah 1:17

Source of all Miracles

You parted the sea; saved Daniel from the lions; rescued teenagers from the furnace; fed 5000 with a boy’s lunch; defeated death…there is nothing too hard for You. I am secure in that truth…but, I fear America has fallen beyond redemption and we, Your children, have been complicit in the terrible mess all around us.

We have allowed our children to be groomed by social media; patronized woke corporations; abandoned justice; allowed TV to babysit our children, tolerated corruption at every level of our politics; contributed to the divides in our communities; by our silence condoned the advance of evil all across the country.

You can do the impossible. Revive in me the power of Your Spirit. I want to be part of the solution. Give me a voice in the arena.

AMEN

Scripture: ““Cry loudly, do not hold back; Raise your voice like a trumpet, And declare to My people their wrongdoing…” Isaiah 58:1

Lord of Heaven and Earth

Talking to You everyday fills my life with confidence. Knowing I am secure in Your love and forgiveness gives every new day purpose.

I am angered by the willful blindness so prevalent today in America. I am angered by the counterfeit reality being used to misdirect so many away from Your love and light.

Help me to direct my anger at the powers of darkness responsible and to love the victim’s so blinded by the glitter of this world.

Lord, call Your church to the battle…shake up the comfortable…teach us how to fall on our knees and fight the powers of darkness.

AMEN

Scripture: “Then I heard the Lord asking, ‘Who shall I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?’ I said, ‘Here I am. Send me.’” Isaiah 6:8
