Lord of Miracles

As I consider the awesome miracle of forgiveness, I am reminded of how much You’ve forgiven me…and how careless I am in forgiving others. Bring to mind any unforgiveness I harbor. Help me release the bitterness. Heal my heart.

I am reminded of the harsh, thoughtless words I’ve spoken in haste and the damage those words have done. Forgive my carelessness and the pain I have caused by speaking without thinking. Touch those I hurt…heal the wounds I caused. Please reveal to me those I need to ask for forgiveness…then give me opportunity and courage. Teach me how to measure my words, temper my responses and see people as You see them.

America’s restoration will be found in forgiveness. Someone has to take the first step. Let it be me.


Scripture: “He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.” Psalms 103:12

My Father, Creator

I am so blessed. I live in the greatest country on earth. I have never gone truly hungry. I have a comfortable home, a great family, a loving God who has never left me alone for a moment.

I have every reason to give thanks to Almighty God for the life He has given me here and for eternity.

When life has thrown me a curve or knocked me down Jesus has always lifted me up…put my feet on solid ground and straightened my path.

Today…and every day I give thanks for a fresh new day the challenges and blessings.

I have learned the best way I can express my gratitude for all my Creator has done is to be obedient to His call and share his name.


Scripture: “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” Psalms 100:4

God Above all Gods

America’s moving at such a frantic pace and I’m living a life without a moment to collect my thoughts so it is easy…accomplished without intent…to get out in front of my skies and fail to wait for Your solution to my issue.

Oh, I pray (quickly) then rush on with my life without Your guidance. Always in a hurry.

When I do, my life becomes entangled with the world…I accept the world’s input and that, of course, insures I am pursuing the wrong priorities…the wrong agenda…for the wrong reasons.

It is when I take a deep breath and allow You to speak to me from Your word, through godly friends and family, that I fully appreciate Your wisdom and Your perfect plan for my life.


Scripture: “He says, “Stop your striving and recognize that I am God!” Psalms 46:10a

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 world’s 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.


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

Dear Heavenly Father

We come humbly before You with the sincere desire to worship You and express our total dependence upon You.

King David said, “I waited patiently on the Lord, and He inclined to me and heard my cry. He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay and He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; many will see and fear and will trust in the Lord.”

May it be so for our America. May we demonstrate Christ’s love and sing a new song of praise so many will see and hear and will trust the Lord.


Scripture from Psalms 40:1-3

Source of all Truth

Your word is the truth…and I can rely on it but the world despises truth. We cannot handle the truth…only the “woke” narrative gets a hearing.

Decades ago we abandoned the concept of truth. In today’s America 2+2 does not equal 4. Instead, everyone is entitled to their own truth. Being called a liar today in the public square is like being called ugly by a wart hog…because truth has no place in America. Without indisputable truth, what passes for public discourse is simply the vain babbling of men.

The integrity of my words is critical to discerning my character. Help me to walk with integrity in all I do. Help me accept Your truth regardless of how it impacts me personally. Without truth, there is no trust. Without trust, we cannot heal our vast divides.

Restore honest discourse to our land.


Scripture: “May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight, LORD, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalms 19:14

Author of Love and Forgiveness

I am grateful to have received Your forgiveness and love without limits. To know when I fail You always offer Your forgiveness, and I can be instantly restored to full fellowship…regardless of the depth of the hurt, I caused…You do not hold grudges.

I know the temptation to want to live a life guided only by my conscience. Too often I do what I want without thought for others…but, I cannot begin to understand the unrelenting hardness of those who so brazenly reject You. I cannot understand the anger and hatred directed at Your Son I hear the defiant cry, “How dare He…I don’t need forgiveness”…and I weep.

If we demand our way, we are doomed to live separated by our sin. Father, guide me to love and forgive as You do…regardless of the personal cost.


Scripture: “They like themselves too much to hate their own sins or even to see them.” Psalms 35:2

Lord of Peace and Order

By Your spoken word the universe was created. 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 corruption is so deeply embedded it seems beyond our political system to repair.

Lord, only You can heal our country…we need a new heart. Please restore our integrity and sense of community.

Let it begin with me.


Scripture: “Cruel rulers are not (our) 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

Lord of Perfection

It is comforting to know You’ve never made a mistake. Everything You do is without error.

But, Your creation has been marred by fallen men like me whose egos demand we be allowed to live without boundaries. The result is deranged darkness; chaos and a life without hope. In our pursuit of a life without consequences, we have destroyed the perfection of Your plans for us. Just as a child cannot blame his pain on his father after he was warned the hot stove was dangerous…we cannot blame our Creator for the hurt we experience after ignoring His warnings.

Your love is not permissive, but protective. Your love is freeing…not limiting. To live within Your perfect boundaries is to know peace and joy beyond imagination.

Father, please restore us to green pastures and still waters.


Scripture: “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He beds me down in green pastures. He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul…” Psalms 23:1-3a

God of all Creation

Thank You for the family structure You designed. That structure, throughout human history, has functioned to create stable homes. Which explains the enemy’s relentless attack on families…fatherhood in particular, demeaning masculine role models.

Secular wisdom insists there is no reason to prefer intact families over any of the non-traditional family structures being foisted on us.

Fatherless children are stunted in their ability to adapt to real-world challenges, handicapped for life by the absence of a father in the home. The impact of absent fathers is evident in the increasing number of crimes reported daily. We’ve been lectured that we must “follow the science” but our overlords are undeterred by the facts. We are sacrificing the next generation on the “altar of progress”.

Lord, restore respect and rebuild families. Give me the courage to stand for traditional families. Our children deserve better than we have given.


Scripture: “God in his holy dwelling is a father of the fatherless and a champion of widows.” Psalms 68:5
