FReeper Canteen ~ Sunday Chapel Thread ~ PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION ~ October 19, 2008

PRAYER FOR THE NATION



Our Father and Our God,

We praise You for Your goodness to
our nation, giving us blessings far
beyond what we deserve.

Yet we know all is not right with America.
We deeply need a moral and spiritual renewal
to help us meet the many problems we face.

Convict us of sin. Help us to turn to You in
repentance and faith. Set our feet on the
path of Your righteousness and peace.

We pray today for our nation's leaders.
Give them the wisdom to know what
is right, and the courage to do it.

You have said, "Blessed is the nation whose
God is the LORD." May this be a new era
for America, as we humble ourselves
and acknowledge You alone as
our Savior and Lord.

This we pray in Your holy name, Amen.

Billy Graham, 50th Anniversary of the National Day of Prayer.

Folks, it's almost "crunch-time" in this nation's history. I know that the Canteen isn't a place for politics, however, THIS thread IS a place for prayer. I've been lead, as I'd say ALL of you have been, to be on our knees before the God who created Heaven and Earth...for His blessing upon this country.






As we gather together, with friends, family and neighbors, please all of us remember that He is in charge. No matter what.




To my Jewish friends, I invite you to come here too, and offer a prayer...we're all in this together.

Thanks, everyone, for letting me say my peace.

He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Force, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our G-d from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May HASHEM cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is Hashem, your G-d, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

G-d bless and keep your children safe, Alouette.

Thank you Brad's Grandma for posting this beautiful thread!

"If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain,
or if I command the locust to devour the land,
or if I send pestilence among My people,
and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray,
and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

2 Chronicles 7:13-14

First of all, welcome to the Chapel thread...I KNOW I can count on each of you to pray.

I was telling Kathy last night that if God gives us this last opportunity after this election, that we must NOT let it be our “last opportunity” by becoming complacent.

Too many of us, MYSELF FIRST AND FOREMOST, thought all was well....we did NOT pray enough. We did NOT keep an eye on our “house”.

Anyway, I’ll get off my soapbox.

:)

Yes indeed. Here's one of my favorites.

George Washington's Prayer for the United States of America

.

Almighty GOD; we make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection, that thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States of America at large.

And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of The Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech thee, through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen ---George Washington, April 30th, 1789

George Washington's prayer was adapted from his Circular Letter to the Governors of the United States

I am so glad to read that you are encouraging people to fast, and that your Ladies Bible Study is doing it!

I was doing some research on fasting for a class I am going to teach and I found this! Share it with your Ladies class. It's tremendous. We need to pray for leaders like those this Country had at its Founding!

Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day

They don't teach this in History class.

Brothers and sisters:
Have no anxiety at all, but in everything,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
make your requests known to God.
Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters,
whatever is true, whatever is honorable,
whatever is just, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious,
if there is any excellence
and if there is anything worthy of praise,
think about these things.
Keep on doing what you have learned and received
and heard and seen in me.
Then the God of peace will be with you.

Phil 4:6-9
