Matthew

New Testament Reference

Protector of the Meek

I ‘m just learning what it means to be truly courageous…what it means to be a courageous person of faith as we stand in the gap for America.

We are all called to be “meek”. A most misunderstood concept of bravery. The greatest picture of meekness…of pure courage in human history occurred when Jesus was tried before Pilate and refused to bow.

Pilate reminded Jesus that he held Jesus’ life in his hands. Without flinching…without being macho, without threatening, Jesus simply said, “You have no power my Father hasn’t given you.”

I must learn to stand unafraid of the worlds threats. Teach me to trust You alone…and to lead others to have the same courage standing before the evil we face. Encourage us in the darkness.

AMEN

Lord of All

You are the light of my life…without You as my guide, I could not find my way. But in today’s culture it is easier to remain silent and simply follow the crowd.

The pressure to conform…to be accepted…can be overwhelming. It is easier to be modern and “Progressive” in America today, but that would mean I must abandon the truth and declare with Peter of old, “I never knew Him.”

Forgive me for the times I’ve chosen the fleeting praise of men instead of speaking up for what is right.

Father, help me to stand firm in the truth even though it may cost me. Strengthen me and give me the courage to stand in the gap against the wokeness enveloping America today.

AMEN

Scripture:  “Wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many that go in by it. Narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life…” Matthew 7:13-14

Lord of Life

You are at work to bring light to the darkness. It is only by Your power that our country lifted

the death sentence from babies “Made in America”. The most evil court ruling in the past 100 years was overturned…Thank You, Father.

Without You, this reversal would be impossible…with You all things are possible! Continue to reveal truth to our culture…heal our divides…remove the coarseness of our language… mend our relationships…help us to be forgiving and care for one another.

Revive Your church and use her to bring a fresh awakening to our land. The possible demise of Roe v. Wade is good news…but the best Good News remains, Jesus died for me…conquered death for me…and gave me a new life! You reign over all creation.

AMEN

Scripture: “But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘with men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’” Mathew 19:26

Father of Light and Truth

Your love continually lifts me to new heights…Your faithfulness inspires great confidence. I have learned how much You care about the things that concern me.

You challenge us in Your word not to be like a foolish man who builds his house on sand. But that is exactly what America is doing and our house is nearing collapse.

Please restore our foundation. Place us once again upon the solid rock of Your truth and heal our homes.

Give me the wisdom and the courage to be a part of a great awakening in the soul of America.

AMEN

Scripture:
“Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house upon the rock.”
Matthew 7:23
