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

Source and Sustainer of Peace

In a world so full of competing noises and loud, angry voices, my soul is quieted by the knowledge that You can hear me through all the clutter. It is comforting to know my voice reaches Your ears and Your heart.

America today is being destroyed by lies, envy and escapism creating deep divisions among us. We are speeding down a highway and the bridge is out ahead. If we don’t stop and change course the carnage will be devastating.

There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is destruction.

Please light our way so that we can avoid the disaster that awaits us on our current course. Let me be a beacon to show the way to safety.

AMEN

We need your help. Our country is being overcome by darkness and we have lost our way. Only Your light can show us the way back to our founding principles.

Intervene and show us Your path forward. Reveal Your truth and cause us to honor You once again.

My Source of Strength and Endurance

When I look around 21st-century America, I am concerned that key essentials of the uniquely American character have been lost over the last few decades. This once great land is no longer that “shining city on the hill” that inspired President Reagan and was a beacon for millions around the globe.

“Can-Do” has been replaced by “Maybe”. Our inspiration to greatness has become wishful thinking. Greatness requires risk-takers to dare the impossible. Success is seldom “overnight”.

Fear has replaced faith and caution over “full speed ahead”. Are we still brave enough to be free?

Empower me to be bold in my faith. Help me place my trust in You rather than men. Let me restore faith to a world fearful of the enemy. Let me lead Your chorus.

AMEN

Scripture: “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will surely help you; I will uphold you with My right hand of righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10

Father of a True Awakening

Today, America’s virtue signals but is without virtue. We have abundant access to facts but are without wisdom. We live our lives in silos we have created to isolate us from one another and from any inconvenient truth.

We are “woke” but without a true spiritual awakening.

I’m often distracted by a world that has become so lost in darkness and deceit that spending meaningful time with You seems nearly impossible.

Challenge me to seek Your face every day….to expect to hear from You in my quiet time…not to settle for a quiet time without a fresh word for my soul. Father, I need an authentic encounter with Your Spirit every day. Only then can I be prepared for the battle ahead.

AMEN

Scripture: “…the Holy One of Israel, has said: “In repentance and rest you will be saved, In quietness and trust is your strength….” Isaiah 30:15

Lord of the Beginning and the End

I pray confidently to You because You have full knowledge of all truth. In Isaiah 59 You describe an America who has lost her way.

We look for light, but all is darkness; we walk in deep shadows. We grope along the wall like people without eyes. Today I acknowledge our iniquities: rebellion and treachery. We have turned our backs on you, inciting revolt and oppression, uttering the lies our hearts have conceived. Righteousness stands at a distance. Honesty cannot enter. Truth is nowhere to be found. Whoever shuns evil becomes its prey. Lord, I know You are displeased…where is the one willing to stand in the gap?

I stand before you willing to serve…please give me the courage and the integrity to represent You to my lost community.

AMEN

Lord of the beginning and the End

It is easy to pray to You because You have demonstrated in Your word perfect knowledge of all things. In Isaiah 59 You describe America today perfectly”

Our streets run red with blood. Our hands are stained with blood. Our lips have spoken falsely. No one pleads his case with integrity. We rely on empty arguments and lies. We do not know the way of peace; there is no justice in our paths. These paths have turned into crooked roads. No one who walks them will know peace. Justice is mocked.

Surely your arm is not too short to save, nor your ear too dull to hear. There is no way forward, except by your light. Father, I cry out for Your help…preserve Your children in this evil day.

AMEN

Sustainer of my Strength

Sometimes…too often…I falter in my commitment to Your call on my life.

I know the things You expect of me as Your child but too quickly I can grow weary in the battle…it is easy to get overwhelmed by the daily news…the pain evil is causing…the hopelessness of those lost in the darkness.

Hear my cry and restore my strength.  Teach me again how to prioritize my efforts.  Show me the important places to use my time…to give my resources…to deploy the skills You’ve given me. More importantly, daily restore my vision to see with Your eyes.  Help me love with Your heart.  Strengthen me in the battle against the enemies of Your salvation.

Every day…with a smile and good cheer…encourage me to stand in the gap for lost in America.

AMEN

Scripture: “But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
