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.
Praying in agreement with you, Irish Rose. Thank you for leading us today.
Amen, Irish Rose—excellent points about which we have yet to pray. Thank you so much.
Amen to your powerful prayer, Irish Rose. God bless George W. Bush.
Amen, and Amen, Irish Rose! Thank you for Leading us in Worship and Prayer.
