Cornerstone and Protector of the Church

The American culture is becoming actively anti-Christian. Today’s woke corporate community is increasingly hostile to the Christian community.

One day soon to say, “Our hope is in Christ alone” will be considered “hate speech”. You told us that the world hated Jesus and would one day hate us too. That day has come…Your prophetic words are becoming our daily reality. Your church has always flourished when persecuted…but America’s church has never been faced with the hostilities she is currently facing.

I pray today for the courage I need to represent You boldly. As Your faithful, I must learn to drop to my knees and engage in the spiritual battle raging for the soul of America.
Without Your intervention, Your bride cannot survive.


Scripture: “If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me first. If you were of the world, it would love you as its own. But the world hates you, because you are not of the world…” John 15:18-19a

Keeper of the light

It is comforting to know You are the keeper of truth…but discouraging to see how deceived our nation is by the misinformation propagated by the servants of darkness.

So many of us are lost, blinded by the enemy, and confused, not knowing the right path to follow. For example, the Supreme Court did not make abortion illegal in America but to watch evil create panic in the streets…it would appear the truth has been obliterated.

From my perspective the lie has the microphone and is drowning out the truth. This seems true in so many issues all across the political spectrum that darkness is prevailing in issue after issue.
Lord, raise up an army of your children with the courage, the knowledge and the opportunity to boldly speak truth to the darkness. May Your light prevail.


Scripture: “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” John 1:5

My Strong Shelter

Truth and life are under attack from all sides. Threats rising from a desperate attempt to nullify the predictable consequences of casual sex abound.

By denying the existence of a second party (the unborn) in an abortion decision, people blinded by the enemy’s soothing deception, demand unfettered permission to kill their own children. Heaven shudders at the evil.

The darkness reaches to the very pinnacle of our political and elitist culture. Shine Your light on the lies…reveal the truth about the sanctity and incalculable value of every unborn life.
We call ourselves “civilized” yet demand the freedom to sacrifice our own children without penalty. Your followers are standing in the way at great personal risk…protect all standing in the gap for the unborn. O Father, redeem us by Your Spirit or we shall perish.


Scripture: “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

Creator of New Hearts,

I’ve been calling out asking You show Yourself mighty in the midst of all the derangement and evil descending on America from all directions.

I’m encouraged to see signs of Your light penetrating the darkness.

It appears that there is a movement of parents all across America engaged in taking back parental control of our public schools. Some of our government’s most egregious efforts to reach further and further into our private lives have been rebuffed.

Now, the spontaneous open-air baptism of hundreds of college students attending a prestigious secular state university…Wow!

While America remains under a dark, ominous and evil cloud. Your light seems to be breaking through with spots of glorious truth…sunlight from heaven.

Thank You for becoming involved…use me…us…to make a difference. Let truth shine brightly.

Father of Truth and Light

Your light brings victory over darkness. Thank You for showing Your power as we pray together seeking Your face and asking Your help.

It is time to take note…AND PRAISE…the mighty things You’ve done.

Major news and social media companies are being muted. Parents have arisen and are taking back the public schools.

The violent tactics employed by pro-abortion forces have not intimidated those fighting for the unborn. The government tyranny that threatened our families and livelihoods during the pandemic has waned. Woke corporations have been called out and are seeing their bottom line eroded.

And, since we worship money above all, You have shown how quickly our “storehouses” can be emptied.

You are truly an awesome God! Help me stand firmly in the light and continually seek Your help…the battle is not over.


Scripture: “Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.” John 3:20

Source of Truth and Wisdom

It is comforting for me to know that because of Christ, I have unfettered access to truth.

But, we seem to be at war with truth and reality if they don’t square with what we want. Anything that challenges the way we wish things were is rejected as false. Instead of adapting we seek the nearest “safe space” and retreat into a make-believe reality.

Escapism and denial are the acceptable responses to facts upsetting our fantasies. Make-believe replaces truth. We want to live without restraint. If someone can say of a mass killer, “I know he had a reason for what he did…” as was recently reported…we have truly lost our way.

Lord, remove the scales from our eyes! Shine truth into our darkness. Teach me to share your truth with kindness and love.

Lord of True Honor

Honor today seems to be fungible, subject to the current whims being pushed on social media at any given moment. While we virtue signal commitment to the latest “cause celeb” without having to do anything meaningful.

Commitment to social justice requires a statue to memorialize George Floyd while embracing a movement to denigrate men of true honor represented throughout our history.

Up with Floyd, down with Jefferson and Washington…Franklin and Lincoln. No man is without flaw…but honoring a criminal above Washington is a travesty.

Honor must go beyond virtue signaling. It is a mark of uncommon selflessness. Corrie Ten Boom and Arlington Cemetery are true representations of honor.

The rugged cross of Calvary is tribute to the highest honor. Empower me to be an honorable man.


Scripture: “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. John 10:11

Lord of Truth and Freedom

You established America as a place where individual liberty could shine. This is a nation established as an historical experiment unleashing the full potential of mankind by minimizing government power and unlocking the potential of a free people.

Our depraved descent from those lofty goals into a divided tribal culture without any moral values while abandoning historical standards of behavior leaves liberty without a champion.

A sad symbol of our fall is our destruction of the statue of the drafter of our Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson and erecting one honoring George Floyd.

We have turned virtue on its head and honor criminals above transcendent truth.

It’s as evident today as never before…You are our one true hope. Help me stand courageously for the cross of Christ.


Scripture: “So if the Son sets you free, you really will be free.” John 8:36

King over All Human History

I give You my humble “Thank You” for Your intervention in the affairs of kings, to establish centuries ago the concept of freedom for all mankind on these shores.

Seeking freedom from an oppressive king and seeking the right to worship You as their conscience dictated, a small band of godly, courageous men and women embarked on an impossible journey daring to dream an impossible dream. You planted, nurtured, and blessed their dreams.

Their vision became a reality many years ago on July 4, 1776.

In many ways, our journey follows the pattern of another impossible journey; the exodus, the new beginning and the ups and downs of Israel.

May neither their failures nor ours mark the end of the quest to find and serve You.

God bless America.

Keeper of my Future

Your plans for the future for Your children, those accepting the salvation You offer so freely to anyone who believes, are beyond our comprehension.

But the prince of this world…the master liar and sower of darkness would blind us to the wonder and power of Your love for us.

You have called me to go to battle daily for those eternal souls lost in darkness, depravity, and pain.

It would bring deep sadness to me if, when I arrive at heaven’s gate, You showed me the nail scars in Your hands and asked, “My child, show me your scars.”

And I replied, “I have none.”

Then, in a gentle rebuke as I entered eternity You quietly asked me, “Was there nothing worth fighting for?”


Scripture, “Then He said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands…” John 20:27
