Posted on 03/29/2008 10:42:28 AM PDT by Irish Rose
Lord, we pray for our president and brother in Christ, George W. Bush. We pray that Your Spirit would rest on him, to sustain, encourage, guide, and correct. May his walk be upright, his decisions wise, his eyes open. May You be glorified in his life, Father.
Lord, we pray for all our toops, and especially those in harm's way. We pray, Father, that You would encourage them, that You strengthen them in the fight. Please watch over them; protect them and give them the victory. We pray also for comfort for those who mourn the lost, for peace for those who wait, and for healing in soul and body to every soldier who has been harmed.
Father, we pray for our country. Please turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, to make ready a people for You. We pray, Lord, for protection against our enemies, and thank You that America has not suffered another terrorist attack since September 11.
Finally, Lord, we acknowledge You as creation's King - the Maker, Sustainer, and Lord of all that has been made. By You and for You we have been created, and we pray to be pleasing Your sight. May Your Name be praised throughout the earth. In the matchless Name of Christ, Amen.
A call to prayer.
Gee whiz, I’d like to think that with his family. the POTUS will have gotten through it all on his own and that he and his subordinates, especially as Commander-in-Chief, were just what the doctor ordered for these times. They deserve all the credit that can possibly be due. We’ve all had to make sacrifices in some way but if it were not for their leadership and the men and women of the US military, we might all be on our knees begging for our lives.
AMEN SISTER AND GRACE TO ALL CHRISTIAN PATRIOTS!
“I called him, but he gave me no answer.”
- Song of Solomon 5:6
Prayer sometimes tarrieth, like a petitioner at the gate, until the King
cometh forth to fill her bosom with the blessings which she seeketh. The
Lord, when he hath given great faith, has been known to try it by long
delayings. He has suffered his servants’ voices to echo in their ears as
from a brazen sky. They have knocked at the golden gate, but it has
remained immovable, as though it were rusted upon its hinges. Like
Jeremiah, they have cried, “Thou hast covered thyself with a cloud, that
our prayer should not pass through.” Thus have true saints continued long
in patient waiting without reply, not because their prayers were not
vehement, nor because they were unaccepted, but because it so pleased him
who is a Sovereign, and who gives according to his own pleasure. If it
pleases him to bid our patience exercise itself, shall he not do as he
wills with his own! Beggars must not be choosers either as to time, place,
or form. But we must be careful not to take delays in prayer for denials:
God’s long-dated bills will be punctually honoured; we must not suffer
Satan to shake our confidence in the God of truth by pointing to our
unanswered prayers. Unanswered petitions are not unheard. God keeps a file
for our prayers-they are not blown away by the wind, they are treasured in
the King’s archives. This is a registry in the court of heaven wherein
every prayer is recorded. Tried believer, thy Lord hath a tear-bottle in
which the costly drops of sacred grief are put away, and a book in which
thy holy groanings are numbered.
By-and-by, thy suit shall prevail.
Canst thou not be content to wait a little? Will not thy Lord’s time be
better than thy time? By-and-by he will comfortably appear, to thy soul’s
joy, and make thee put away the sackcloth and ashes of long waiting, and
put on the scarlet and fine linen of full fruition.
SOLI DEO GLORIA!
