Father in heaven

As Creator of life, You passionately love children from the time of conception forward.

But, almost daily we read of new attacks on our children’s health, safety, and innocence as evil abounds.

From the hatred and rage on display in the abortion wars to the AMA’s endorsement of mutilation of young people on the altar of gender fluidity to the teacher’s unions’ expressed desire to indoctrinate children as young as 5 years old on deviant sexual behavior, we are destroying our children.

In 2004, 9.6% of school-aged children were the targets of sexual advances by their teachers. Today, as we have greater access to cell phones an average of nearly one teacher or teacher’s aid per day is arrested for child sex crimes.

Holy Spirit restrain this evil from taking root among us.

Amen

Scripture: “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb, a reward.” Psalms 127:3

God of all Truth

Thank You for rescuing me from the quicksand and putting my feet on solid ground. I reach out to You today in great confidence Because nothing is impossible for You.

You made a path through the sea.
You created an army from a field of dry bones.
You rescued Your children from a fiery furnace.
You caused a donkey to speak.
You made the deaf hear, and the blind see.
You arose from a sealed tomb defeating the curse of death.

It is nothing for You to reach out Your mighty hand and rescue America from destruction. There are so many desperate for the hope You alone offer but are lost in darkness.

Reveal Yourself, “a lamp to our feet and a light to our path.” showing us the way home.

AMEN

Scripture: “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalms 119:105

King of Kings

By Your spoken word, the universe was created and You oversee the smallest details of life. There is nothing outside Your notice.

You divinely inspired our founders to bring forth America as a fresh wind of liberty for the human race.

But we have allowed this shining city of hope for all mankind to become sullied by corruption. Our political system at every level is filled with selfish and arrogant people of both parties. They serve themselves without regard for “We the people”.

Our sickness is so deeply embedded, it seems beyond our political system to repair.

Lord, only You can heal our country…we’re in need of a heart transplant. Please restore our sense of community…and let it begin in my heart.

AMEN

Scripture: “Cruel rulers are not your allies, those who make oppressive laws. They conspire against the blameless and condemn to death the innocent. But the Lord will protect me, and my God will shelter me.” Psalms 94:20-22

God of Compassion

You have shown Your love and forgiveness throughout history. You have demonstrated Your mercy towards me over and over.

I ask You to show Your mercy to those so tragically impacted by the situation at our southern border. Those coming from such terrible situations hoping to find a better life. Those in America devastated by the flow of drugs destroying lives and families. The children used as pawns by the coyotes, mercilessly abandoned once they’ve served their purpose.

The disrespect for our immigration laws is encouraging our society to resort to mob rule. It is a tragedy beyond words.

Only You can rescue those trapped in this cycle of hopelessness.

Help me show compassion for all those suffering through this crisis.

AMEN

Scripture: “But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.” Psalm 86:15

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

Scripture: “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5 & “But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace and prosperity.” Psalms 37:11

Creator and Sustainer of Life

I lift my eyes up to Your mountains. Their majesty reminds me…my help comes from the creator of the mountains. I am safe in Your hands.

But I am surrounded by sheep, lost and wandering aimlessly without You. They are deceived and misled by the forces of darkness that have descended on America.

They are being drawn away from truth and towards destruction.

You are the light of the world…shine brightly into the darkness…light for us the path back to truth and safety. Heal our divisions and restore our vision.

Without You, the future is desolate. You are the answer to every problem we face.

Holy Spirit, shake us from our slumber and empower us to stand in the gap for America.

AMEN

Scripture: “I will lift up my eyes to the hills…from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord who made the heavens and the earth,”

Psalms 121:1

Creator and Sustainer of my soul

My rock and my fortress, to consider life without You is to face a hopeless future. I kneel before You in awe and wonder.

But the world around me is lost in darkness and desperately in search of a hope and purpose that only You can provide.

Revive and embolden Your church to become a beacon of light. A lighthouse committed to steering America away from the dangerous shoals that surround and threaten her.

Steer her into the safe harbor of Your forgiveness and love.

Show Yourself mightier than those who set themselves up as arbitrators of truth. Reveal their distortions and their hidden intent.

Empower me by Your Spirit to stand bold and courageous on the rock of Your truth.

AMEN

Scripture: “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer.” Psalms 18:2

God of Creation

You give me more access to You than my boss gives me. You hear me when I call. You care about my concerns. You promised You will never leave me nor forsake me. And You’ve never broken Your promise…never.

What future am I leaving my children? This nation You so richly blessed acts as if we’re capable of accomplishing great things without You. We can control the climate…we can solve the human dilemma…we don’t need You; we have Twitter to decide what is true and 5G movie download speeds. Who needs God?

“We the people” need You. Sweep across our nation in power…teach us how foolish we look when acting on our own wisdom.

Lord, pick me up when I fall and set my feet on solid ground.

AMEN

Scripture: “He pulled me out of a dangerous pit, out of deadly quicksand. He placed my feet on a rock and made me secure.”
Psalms 40:2

Keeper and Protector of my Soul

You alone are the source of my salvation. In You alone will I seek forgiveness and purpose. Your promises are sure, and in You I find hope.

I am reminded every day in the headlines and on TV just how far my country has drifted from the days of my youth. We have become hedonistic, self-centered, and deeply divided. We seek to find our way, but all the road signs have been removed and we wander lost in desperate need of guidance.

King David said, “Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path.”

Please light our way back to You.  As You show the way, I will follow and lift Your banner high for others.

AMEN

Scripture: “Your word is a lamp or my feet and a light on my path.”
Psalms 119;105

Abba, Father

Your gracious forgiveness and acceptance of me into the Family of God is amazing. To know You’re never too busy to listen to me and You care about me, overwhelms me

Even though the world around me is changing every day. Even though our nation is rushing towards destruction, I find comfort each new day in Your word.

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. We will not fear though the earth be changed…”

Lord, You still rule from heaven. Please hear my cry and calm our troubled waters.

Use me today to represent Your truth to a divided and struggling people. May they see Christ’s love in me today.

AMEN

Scripture: “You are my hiding place!  You protect me from trouble and You put songs in my heart because You saved me.”

Psalms 32:7
