God of Reason

When all around me is chaos and fantasy, I can always turn to You…the voice of truth and wisdom.

There is something terribly wrong with a culture that vilifies heroes and glorifies the self-centered coward. Any society that would prefer cowards above its selfless heroes as role model and guide for their children has lost its moral foundation and its future is almost beyond retrieval. Lord, America has become that society. Those who disagree are shouted down and the foolish and unhinged reign supreme. Please replace this darkness with Your light. Please have mercy on those without a window into Your love and grace.

Empower Your followers to rediscover their robust voice and speak as one against the unthinkable evil destroying our Land. Help me find my voice.

AMEN

Scripture: “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed.” Proverbs 31:8

God of True Science

It is comforting to know that all science is subject to Your authority. Our intellectual elites struggle to explain the origins of the universe because before creation, all our explanations without the supernatural fall well short of satisfying the question .

The call to “Follow the Science” rings hollow when its proponents tell us there are more than 2 genders…or that untested man-made vaccines are superior to our natural immunity…or we must park our fossil fuel powered vehicles to prevent the Atlantic Ocean from overwhelming NYC. All of these fantasies and many more are designed to tickle man’s ego and diminish our reliance on our Creator.

Father, these deceptions are designed to keep us from acknowledging our need for You. Shine Your light into this darkness and reveal the foolishness of man.

AMEN

Scripture: “A man’s own foolishness leads him astray, yet his heart rages against the Lord.” Proverbs 19:3

Source of Our Victory

“Give me help against the adversary.” Please help me to keep your commandments, loving you with all my heart, soul, mind and strength, and loving my neighbor as myself!

America has been a very giving people reaching out to our world. At the risk of life and liberty we have taken Your gospel to the ends of the earth and have given food, clothing, and financial support to millions across the globe. Lord, please enable us to continue to be a people of generosity.

We face “enemies…adversaries from within”, who seek to discredit You and to defeat Your plan and purposes.

As King David prayed: “Oh give us help against the adversary, for deliverance by man is in vain. Maranatha Lord, please come quickly!

AMEN

Scripture: “
The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the LORD. Proverbs 21:31

Father of Intimacy

In the perfection of creation, man and woman were designed to share life and intimacy together and with You as the crowning glory of Your plan.

Their intimacy became the centerpiece of family. But in our infinite foolishness, we pursue selfish and unfulfilling counterfeits. In desperation, we chase increasingly perverse lies to replace the simplicity of Your plan.

Hollywood teaches us to spell love; “l-u-s-t”. In the process, we have lost the true intimacy we so desire.

So, in:
“From Here to Eternity” it’s Lana Turner and Burt Lancaster rolling in the sand. “Titanic” it’s a one-night stand. “Love Story” it’s never having to say you’re sorry.
Deception replaces reality at every turn and true intimacy is destroyed. America cannot be blessed again until we learn to rediscover Your perfect plan. Shine Your light of truth on this lie from the pit of hell…restore the family in America.

AMEN

Scripture: “…may you rejoice in the wife of your youth. A loving doe, a graceful deer—may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be intoxicated with her Love.” Proverbs 5:18b-19

Source of all truth and knowledge

It is one of my greatest blessings to be anchored in You. To know Your absolute truth is to know Your peace and acceptance.

Everywhere I turn, people are desperate to know the truth but are blinded by the evil and darkness enveloping America.

It seems truth has taken a back seat to convenience. The narrative must be sustained at all costs. We have become cynical and distrusting. We seek solid footing but find only quicksand in this world. Where is there a trustworthy man?

You have promised to set our feet on the rock…the rock of truth.

We must embrace Your piercing light of truth to discover the sanctuary of Your presence.

Lord, shine Your light into the darkness surrounding us. Do not let evil have anywhere to hide.

AMEN

Scripture: “The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in those who tell the truth.” Proverbs 12:22

Father of love and unity

I am eternally grateful that You do not play favorites. You have invited everyone to join You at the family table. You offer a banquet feast for all who will join You.
But today in America, we are divided so badly, mutual respect seem impossible to achieve.

The enemy has been so successful in sowing seeds of distrust and anger among us that pursuing our national motto “From many, one” seems a fool’s errand.

I know the truth, yet sometimes I find it very difficult to remember we don’t wrestle against those with whom we disagree, but with the prince of darkness who has blinded them.

Without compromise, let me be a peacekeeper and team builder in these dark times.

AMEN

Scripture: “A kind answer soothes angry feelings, but harsh words stir them up.” Proverbs 15:1

Creator and Boss of the Universe

There is no one bigger than You or less worthy than me…but still You’ve gone out of Your way to give me access to Your throne room. Why I don’t know…except You display a crazy love for me. Thank You is so inadequate!

America needs You badly…we have lost contact with reality and descended into a make believe world where truth is whatever the narrative needs it to be. We try desperately to avoid the consequences of bad choices…yet we believe we’re entitled to Your blessings. We ignore our failures and mock Your salvation.

I don’t know how we can be restored to sanity…only You know. Please do not give up on us.
Give me the wisdom and courage to speak Your truth into a dark corner of the world!

AMEN

Scripture: “A hard worker has plenty of food but a person who chases fantasies ends up in poverty.” Proverbs 28:19

Jehovah

Thank You for making provision for my sin. By the blood of Calvary I now have You on my speed dial…AND, You always answer. Your love for the human race is unbelievable…You died for us!

Most teachers are dedicated and loving, but they are being overwhelmed by forces of darkness and deceit. For more than 2 years now our children have been abandoned, forced to wear unhealthy masks, and groomed for destruction.

Please intervene on the children’s behalf. End the cruel and misguided policies dominating so many of our public schools. I am thankful for the parents across the country standing up for their children…I know You brought that to be. Thank You…but continue to shine Your pure light on this because there is more to do.

Guide me to become all You created me to be…and to share Your love with others each day.

AMEN

Scripture:
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”

Creator and Savior

Because of Christ’s sacrifice, You offer me forgiveness, hope, and security. You hear me when I call…thank You!

I despair for America today. She has become as hedonistic as any culture in history…she has lost her bearings. There is no absolute truth. Boys are girls. Right is wrong. up is down.

Emotions control us and “I”, “me” and “Mine” reign victorious while the church cowers in the corner.

Father, revive Your bride! Make Your voice heard again across this land. Forgive us and rescue us from this foreboding darkness.

Please give me an opportunity today to share Your hope with someone in need.

AMEN

Scripture:
“Deliver those who are being taken away to death, and those staggering to slaughter, Oh hold them back.”
Proverbs 24:11

Background

My Redeemer

That You would forgive my sin is overwhelming…and to know You hear me when I call on You is an unmerited blessing.

My country, in the boldest and most demeaning manner, has discarded Your word, exchanging it for the foolishness of man. We stumble forward following the latest social media influencer. We are headed into a cavern of darkness and deceit. Our only hope is You…yet we continue to believe Silicon Valley can provide us peace and prosperity. We only find more emptiness…please rescue us and set our feet on solid ground.

Give me the strength to do what I know is right today…and may I be a lighthouse for Your Kingdom.

AMEN

Scripture:
“But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines brighter and brighter until the full day.”
