The King Never too Busy

How can 3 hours seem but a brief moment in Your presence? When I truly enter Your presence, I never want that time to end. There are billions of people on this planet, yet when we connect, it is as though it is just You and me.

The clock stands still…nothing else matters. Thank You for caring so intensely for me…surely You have more important things to do. Yet You are never distracted, never in a hurry…it is always me that somehow gets distracted.

Forgive me when I treat our quiet moments together so casually. It is my prayer today that all of America could meet You so intimately…we each need a powerful encounter with Your Spirit…an eternity-altering touch. Change me…change us from the inside out.


Scripture: “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:2

Lord of Every Generation

Even a casual look at the GenZ generation reveals a very discouraging and heartbreaking truth. America’s obsession with “me first” priorities has produced a generation of children now entering adulthood without the knowledge or skills to be successful adults.

Embracing fantasies and victimhood, they have become an ever-increasing portion of our population ill-equipped to deal with truth and reality. Instead, far too many are seeking “safe spaces”, have no sense of personal accountability and are hopelessly lost. We have failed them…because too many of us have failed to teach them the critical life lessons that truth trumps the desired “narrative”…and…we are each one accountable for our choices. We have abandoned a generation of our young people to the enemy…they are without hope and condemned.

Without You we are lost…God save us!


Scripture: “Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools…Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done.” Romans 1:22; 28

God above all gods

Forgive me when I fail to exalt You above every other thing in the universe. While it is easy to intellectually acknowledge You as the Ruler of the universe…the practical truth is way too often I let the things of this world take priority.

When I do, that is usually when;
Things fall apart
I lose perspective
It is easy to whine and complain.

But, when I pause and acknowledge You’re the boss, I am much more pleasant to be around…I can speak Your praises easily and I learn to find joy in Your presence in my life.

When I have things in proper perspective I can make a difference in the world around me. Empower me to have a positive impact on this lost and dying world.


Scripture: “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” Romans 12:2a

Righteous Judge

I do not fear Your judgment even though I stand before You without merit except for the sacrifice of Christ.

Your grace and Your mercy flow richly to me. Yet most around me seem either oblivious or unconcerned about facing Your righteous wrath. They believe the lie that they are “good enough”
to decide right from wrong without You and by their self-righteousness enter into Your eternal Glory. Oh, Father, because so many of us who’ve experienced Your forgiveness have been silenced by our concerns for acceptance we have become ineffective…or worst, unconcerned and by our silence,
we are condemning many to a hopeless eternity.

Help me…I do not want to be part of the silence any longer. Give my voice volume so that my life might have true meaning.


Scripture: “But because you are stubborn and refuse to turn from your sin, you are storing up terrible punishment for yourself. For a day of anger is coming, when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.” Romans 2:5

God above all Human Understanding

In conflict between the wisdom of this age and Scripture…You win. But, Americans are rejecting Your word in favor of woke, delusional human wisdom.

In our arrogance, we are embracing bizarre concepts that flaunt our dismissal of You and our rejection of Your authority over creation. The list of things we are embracing that defy logic and science is staggering: Abortion; Climate Change; The Rule of law; Defund the police; multiple genders…the beat goes on reflecting our ego-centered belief we don’t need You. The resulting violence and societal dysfunction are proof-positive of the abject failure of creation’s ability to replace a creator with a “flat earth”.

The darkness is prevailing and we are flailing to find our way. Please send Your Spirit to correct me and give me the opportunity to shine a light into this darkness.


Scripture: “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and revered and worshiped the creature rather than the creator…” Romans 1:25

Dear Heavenly Father

As I read your word, I know it transcends all time and is relevant to the 21st century.

You condemn injustice and partiality to the wicked! You vindicate the weak and fatherless! You do justice to the afflicted and destitute. And rescue the weak and needy. You deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

Because of the evil, we walk in darkness; our foundations are shaken. We say, “We are gods”, yet You determine the number of our days. We have earned Your wrath. Arise, O God, judge America in righteousness in Your time. You are slow to anger and longsuffering. Forgive us our arrogance and send.

Your light to us again…call us back to You once more. Use me to spread Your message with urgency.


Scripture: “But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed.” Romans 2:5

Source of all Peace

At every hand, there is no peace…no joy. How have we fallen so far so quickly from Your shelter and blessing?

We have let the government impose a godless reign on the country. Our politicians, our media, and our elites have declared there is no place for You in our laws, our culture. our communities. You have in righteousness removed Your protections from us.

We are vulnerable to every deceitful and dark lie that presents itself as the solution. Abandoning Your guidance, we desperately seek answers from a lost and fallen world.

Please shine the light of truth on all the deceit and evil that has overtaken us.

Lord, there are many blinded and confused. Please apply Your mercy and rescue us from the darkness that blinds us.


Scripture: “Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good. “ Romans 12:21

Creator of Life

I know You’re brokenhearted for all those being murdered in America’s inner cities.

Gangs, cartel members and ruthless essentially fatherless young men are destroying innocent lives. Black-on-black homicides have more than doubled in the last 12 months and the savagery continues unabated.

As a result of our loss of respect for the intrinsic value of life, we are seeing unprecedented numbers of innocent people being attacked and killed.

This anger and violence are the product of an American society that has lost its way.

Life is no longer sacred. From the womb to the baby carriage to the schools, to the streets, we deny the sanctity of life at every level.

We seek answers in human wisdom, but only You can end the carnage and bring peace.


Scripture: Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Romans 12:17

Source of all Truth

I am calmed by the knowledge that You’re in charge. I am secure knowing You’ve adopted me into Your eternal family by the sacrifice of Christ at Calvary.

But, if I’m honest, when I see the TV news; when I must deal with the prices of everything climbing beyond reach; when I recognize the power of the social media aligned against the truth; when I experience the divisions among us…I am overwhelmed by the tidal wave of American dysfunction.

But, even as the fear threatens to paralyze me, I remember that though I am not capable of staunching the approaching darkness on my own…I am more than a conqueror when You guide my words and actions.

It is Your presence in me that makes victory possible.


Scripture: “Yet, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” Romans 8:37

Giver and Sustainer of Life

Each breath I draw is a gift from You. May each day You allow me to reveal the beauty of life to me and the opportunity to share Your love with others.

I’ve been granted many years…but many of our youth’s lives are being cut short by the evil and hopeless darkness that surrounds us on all sides.

Drug overdoses are up 20% in the past 3 years among our children. Life insurance actuarial tables show deaths among our 19–35-year-olds growing at alarming rates. Suicides, overdoses, and undiagnosed medical issues are killing our young.

Those in government responsible display a surprising lack of interest in combatting this tragedy.

Lord, shine a light on this darkness, expose the evildoers, and protect our children from this scourge. Empower the truth.


Scripture: “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:21
