Fearsome Avenger

Many do not like to consider Your avenging justice.  We prefer to think of You as kind, gentle, patient and forgiving…and all of those descriptions are true.

But we are told that on the day of Your judgement those willfully ignoring the consequences of their foolish choices…ignoring Your warnings of a coming Judgement Day…will discover too late that grace has run its course and justice will reign in its place. We are told that “every knee shall bow” to Christ. If I’ve chosen to mock His sacrifice today…tomorrow my stubborn pride will be forced to submit to His authority.  What follows is an eternity of punishment for my foolish arrogance and willful blindness.

Empower me to speak convincingly of the way of escape from the consequences of my pride.


Scripture: “But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God”  Romans 2:5

Source of All Truth

In our foolish arrogance, we continually challenge You and deny the absolute truth of our need for rescue from the darkness that claims each of us.

Thank You for revealing my need for the cross and Your promise to lift me from darkness to light when I cried out to You and acknowledged my need. Today’s narrative blinding us, is our insistence that we are good enough to merit heaven without Your intervention. We are certain we owe no debt for our disregard for You. The undeniable truth is that our pride overcomes our willingness to seek Your help…denial comes easier and we refuse to humble ourselves before the cross.

Help me elevate Your truth above the false narrative. We are hopeless without You!


Scripture: “For the payoff of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

Lord of All Knowledge

Author of all history and all future, thank You for being an integral part of my life. It is a great comfort to know that the author of the future holds me securely in the palm of His hand.
Confident in my eternity, absolutely nothing can shake me.

Help me live and share this truth with all those around me lost in darkness and despair, knowing only fear of tomorrow. Without hope, so many are blinded to the truth by a world shrouded in darkness.

You are the light of the world and the darkness shall not prevail because darkness hides from the light. The lies and depravity that survive only in the darkness cannot withstand exposure to the power of truth. Make me a bright spotlight.


Scripture: “I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love…nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God…” Romans 8:38-39

Healer of the Blind

You have restored sight to the blind…but I fear You won’t restore sight to the willfully blind. Your word says that those who see the truth but suppress it You give them over to their foolishness.

America has rejected You and Your Son and exchanged it for the wisdom of men…and we’re in real trouble. We are depraved and embracing darkness. Please don’t leave us in this dark and dangerous place. We are hopeless without You. Send the light of Your salvation across this land. Awaken Your people to the ever-growing threat of eternal hopelessness and empower us to stand in the gap for truth and righteousness.

Give me the boldness and the wisdom to speak Your truth into the darkness.


Scripture: “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 1:28

Source of True Justice

We are mourning in America because of the brokenness and deaths caused by the dangerous drugs being smuggled into our country.

Our government seems indifferent to this life-and-death crisis. Every lost life is a tragedy…thousands of lost lives is the treacherous act of people so evil it is impossible to imagine the depth of their depravity. It seems we have abandoned any serious commitment to stop the flow of drugs. This drug invasion at our southern border is destroying our young people.

Your Prayer Warriors cry out today…please bring Your righteous judgment to bear on this evil. From Beijing to Mexico City to DC and all points in between, may we hear all those responsible begging for Your mercy. Restore justice in America.


Scripture: “Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written: ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord.” Romans 12:19

Author of Right and Wrong

I lift this prayer grateful that You loved me enough to provide a healthy path for my life, and guidelines protect me from the darkness and deceit that threatens mankind with eternal hopelessness.

February 4, 2004 is the day darkness won…the day Facebook was launched and social media was born. The enticement of social media notoriety and the potential to generate virtual “friends” has become so strong a magnet it has drained humanity of virtue and normalized evil behavior. As Silicon Valley’s grip on public discourse has grown, so has the glorification of the evil intent of the human heart.

Without Your truth mankind is easily deceived and lost for eternity. Please give Your children discernment and the courage speak truth into the lies that are entrapping so many. Use me.


Scripture: “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness.” Romans 1:18

Father of my Salvation

It is a mystery…those born to privilege, born only once, will surely die. But even the lowly born…born twice will live forever.

I am so grateful for Your gift of my second birth. Lowly born and truly undeserving of Your rescue, I called to You and I was born a second time. This time into Your eternal family.

Now I live each day secure in Your love. And when I fall, which I surely do…the moment I ask You set my feet back on solid ground.  Our fellowship is never in doubt.

Father, so many around me today are blinded by the enemy, imprisoned seeming far from Your love…don’t abandon them in their lostness…touch them with Your love. Use me, give me courage to speak.


Scripture: “How can people have faith in the Lord and ask him to save them, if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear, unless someone tells them?”  Romans 10:14

God of the Impossible

I’m comforted to know nothing is beyond Your capacity to rescue or repair.
Whatever is required to deliver Your children You can make it happen.


…are the God of the Arc;

…built a road through the seas;

…gave Joshua victory at Jericho;

…led Joseph from prison and Daniel from the lions;

…raised a mighty army from dried, bleached bones;

…fed the multitudes with a kid’s lunch

…overcame my sin with Your blood

…conquered death at Calvary;

…are coming to rescue Your children from the prince of darkness.

There is nothing You cannot accomplish to secure my eternity in heaven. In the presence of overwhelming evil, I will trust You. I must remember, in the most trying times, when the night appears darkest: God has this under control!


Scripture: “What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31

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
