Faithful God,

We come to You today as children of Your love, and we pray that You would help us to hear Your voice above all the noise and din of our lives. Descend unto us, Holy Spirit, like a dove, and come into our hearts, that we may be as one with You. Help us to be still and know that You are God. May Your Name and Your holiness be exalted above all the earth.

Lord, we know that no one has ever called on You in vain. Please hear our prayer for our President, Great God. We know that his desire is to please You and because he is attempting to do Your will, we ask that You reward him for his commitment to You. Your Word tells us to be believers in You and Your truth. Thank You for all the successes of our President that have been made possible by his belief in You and by his willingness to accept Your Lordship over his life. Continue to guide him, Father, and let him never lose his way. Please help him to gain influence in this nation through his powerful example. We rejoice that he is not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Lord, please grant him the strength and conviction to continue to do what is right, regardless of the political fall-out. Fight every battle for him, Lord, and let him emerge victorious because he allows You to work in his life.

Father, we decry the arrogance of federal judges who appoint themselves as gods, seeking to rule out of their own narrowly defined righteousness. Lord, only You are God. We come against this tool the devil is using to manipulate the system of representative government we have in this nation. Help us Lord. Help the American people to rise up in righteous indignation over judicial activism and its assault on the traditions and moral underpinnings of this nation. Our President has nominated a godly man to the Supreme Court, and we ask that you help the people of this nation to support his nominee. Father, please expose the lies and vicious rhetoric and enable Judge Roberts to be confirmed.

May Your face never cease to shine upon our faithful service men and women, protecting and defending them. Please continue to bring success to our war effort, and help the Gospel to be brought to Afghanistan and Iraq, Lord. Please bring the light of Jesus Christ to all our cities throughout America as well, for the day is short and the darkness is great.

Father, you gave Your beloved Son to die for us, and we pray that none would go to the grave without accepting Him as their Saviour. Help us to share the wonderful news of the Gospel, Lord, that our nation may return to You in faithfulness; that we, Your people and the sheep of Your pasture, may give You thanks forever, and show forth Your praise to all generations. In the Name of Jesus Christ we pray, Amen.

Heavenly Father,

Yesterday I became aware of a woman, who in her grief and anger is spreading lies about the President. Deliver her from her anger, Lord, heal her grief, and give her a change of heart.

Lord, I ask that you comfort the President and make him aware of how much good he has done for people. Let those who are using this woman for their own ends be confounded and defeated.

I ask this in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, who reigns with You and the Holy Spirit.

Amen.

"Love's Prayer

By John Hay
10/8/1838-7/1/1905





If Heaven would hear my prayer,
My dearest wish would be,
Thy sorrows not to share
But take them all on me;
If Heaven would hear my prayer.

I'd beg with prayers and sighs
That never a tear might flow
From out thy lovely eyes,
If Heaven might grant it so;
Mine be the tears and sighs.

No cloud thy brow should cover,
But smiles each other chase
From lips to eyes all over
Thy sweet and sunny face;
The clouds my heart should cover.

That all thy path be light
Let darkness fall on me;
If all thy days be bright,
Mine black as night could be;
My love would light my night.

For thou art more than life,
And if our fate should set
Life and my love at strife,
How could I then forget
I love thee more than life?"

http://www.daypoems.net/poems/1543.html

thank you

Dear Brethren, I am finally back. Grace to all of you, and thank you for your prayers.

John 17:1
Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: "Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You,

John 17:2
"as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.

John 17:3
"And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

John 17:4
"I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.

John 17:5
"And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.

John 17:6
"I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.

John 17:7
"Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You.

John 17:8
"For I have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me.

John 17:9
"I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.

John 17:10
"And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them.

John 17:11
"Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.

John 17:12
"While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.

John 17:13
"But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.

John 17:14
"I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

John 17:15
"I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

John 17:16
"They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

John 17:17
"Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

John 17:18
"As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.

John 17:19
"And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.

John 17:20
"I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word;

John 17:21
"that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.

John 17:22
"And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one:

John 17:23
"I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

John 17:24
"Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

John 17:25
"O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me.

John 17:26
"And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them."
(NKJV)

"They weave the spider's web."
- Isaiah 59:5



See the spider's web, and behold in it a most suggestive picture of the
hypocrite's religion. It is meant to catch his prey: the spider fattens
himself on flies, and the Pharisee has his reward. Foolish persons are
easily entrapped by the loud professions of pretenders, and even the more
judicious cannot always escape. Philip baptized Simon Magus, whose
guileful declaration of faith was so soon exploded by the stern rebuke of
Peter. Custom, reputation, praise, advancement, and other flies, are the
small game which hypocrites take in their nets. A spider's web is a marvel
of skill: look at it and admire the cunning hunter's wiles. Is not a
deceiver's religion equally wonderful? How does he make so barefaced a lie
appear to be a truth? How can he make his tinsel answer so well the
purpose of gold? A spider's web comes all from the creature's own bowels.
The bee gathers her wax from flowers, the spider sucks no flowers, and yet
she spins out her material to any length. Even so hypocrites find their
trust and hope within themselves; their anchor was forged on their own
anvil, and their cable twisted by their own hands. They lay their own
foundation, and hew out the pillars of their own house, disdaining to be
debtors to the sovereign grace of God. But a spider's web is very frail.
It is curiously wrought, but not enduringly manufactured. It is no match
for the servant's broom, or the traveller's staff. The hypocrite needs no
battery of Armstrongs to blow his hope to pieces, a mere puff of wind will
do it. Hypocritical cobwebs will soon come down when the besom of
destruction begins its purifying work. Which reminds us of one more
thought, viz., that such cobwebs are not to be endured in the Lord's
house: he will see to it that they and those who spin them shall be
destroyed for ever.
O my soul, be thou resting on something better than a spider's web.
Be the Lord Jesus thine eternal hiding-place.

Our President has nominated a godly man to the Supreme Court, and we ask that you help the people of this nation to support his nominee. Father, please expose the lies and vicious rhetoric and enable Judge Roberts to be confirmed.

Agreeing with your powerful prayer, Faith, and joining you in specifically praying that the enemies of Judge Roberts might be confounded and that he will be confirmed without any further character assassination.

I pray also for the people in this country who are so consumed with hatred, bitterness, vitriol, and lust for power that they will say and do anything to hurt others, while being unable to offer up anything positive. May the Holy Spirit reach into their hearts, convicting them of their sin, and showing them their need for the Savior, Jesus Christ our Lord.

The devil is very busy, isn't he? How blessed we are to have the strength of the Lord to endure and the blessed assurance of His faithfulness. May those who live in bitterness and hatred, who are blind to all that is good and right and just and true---may the light of Jesus Christ expose their darkness and bring hope and new purpose to their lives.
