I am calling all praying Freepers, Jewish and Christian, to this thread...as a place to gather to offer our prayers to God's Heavenly Throne for prayer for our nation. For prayers for Newt Gingrich, that he can withstand the forces of evil that are surrounding him.
Obama's acting like a dictator. Romney's just plain being mean. Some of the talk show hosts are disappointing us. Yet WE, few but mighty, can help our country and Mr. Gingrich through prayer. It's MY belief that we wouldn't be in this mess in the first place had we all been doing just that.
As I said in the first thread, this is a PRAYER thread...please come here to offer them to God. We need His help SO badldy. We've failed Him by allowing the leftists to chip away at our society. We've not gotten on our knees and asked for forgiveness for our sins.
Please join in prayer..."Wherever two or more are gathered in My name..."
Link to prior thread
Dear God, please help us to save America.
I was wondering if Santorum was going to drop out and back Gingrich.A few days ago I was against this but I have a bad feeling and am nervous in the 11th hour.
God help us.
Is that your prayer?
I have a prayer that I have started to pray in 2012. A year that I know I must prepare for....
Dear Lord, thank you for giving me the strength
And the conviction to complete the task you entrusted to me.
Thank you for guiding me straight and true,
Through the many obstacles in my path.
And for keeping me resolute when all around seemed lost.
Thank you for your protection and for your many signs along the way.
Thank you for any good that I may have done.
Im so sorry about the bad.
Thank you for the friends of the Cause I have made.
Please watch over them as you watched over me.
Thank you for never allowing me to rest.
Im so very tired, but you give me the strength.
But before I go to my final resting place, help me to fight with all I have.
In the end, please let me be at peace
Knowing that I have done right
with my time on this earth.
Knowing that I fought the good fight.
That I finished the race.
That I kept the faith.
Dear Lord, We pray that you will save and protect this country. We submit tomorrows Florida primary election into your hands. We pray that you will open peoples eyes and that they will be able to discern the truth. We pray that you will give them wisdom and the strength to vote for the right person. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
Father in Heaven, we thank You and praise You for the blessings You have given us. We ask that You hear the cries and prayers of Your believers. Please do not forsake us, Father. It's in Jesus' and the blessed Holy Spirit's name we pray, Amen
Standing with all of you in prayer for our nation and for Newt. Lord, may Your will be done and may You be glorified through it all!
I join in earnest prayer for Newt Gingrich and our country!
A favorite of mine:
Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the LORD and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.
The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.
I will proclaim the LORDs decree:
He said to me, You are my son; today I have become your father. Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. You will break them with a rod of iron; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.
Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling. Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
Some thoughts that are in my mind at this point in America’s history:
God is faithful; all scripture shall be fulfilled. No nation lives forever, but each soul shall. How can it not be a sin to knowingly assist a malevolent man’s ascent to power? How can I mock another man’s repentance, and expect any to respect my own? Do not fear those who can only kill the body, whether they have attained power, or simply lust for it. Our home is not on this earth, or in these bodies.
God is not mocked. Not by any person. Not by any nation.
Sin has consequences, the results will follow.
God Bless Brads Gramma for starting this Wonderful Prayer thread. And may God Bless America, again.
Very nice...thank you BOTH!!!
WOW!!! Thank you!!
Create in America a clean heart oh G-D, and renew a right spirit within us.
Cast us not away from thy presence and take not thy Holy Spirit away,
Restore unto us the joy of thy salvation, and uphold us with thy free spirit.
Please protect, provide, and sustain our brother Newt Gingrich, and give him a decisive victory in Florida tomorrow. Arise, Oh G-D, and let your enemies be scattered. In Jesus matchless name.....Amen
I could feel this thread in my sleep.
Indeed these are 'the times' ..... right now in 2012. Although the process has been ongoing for years, it has become ever more apparent in the events of the last three years and crystal clear in the last two weeks, that everything our Founding Fathers fought for and obtained for us at the cost of their "lives, fortunes, and sacred honor" 236 years ago, has almost slipped away from our grasp.
Tyranny has returned. Its most recent manifestation is the DHS ruling that has put the government squarely between our First Amendment rights and our religion. The government would force us to go against our conscience and our God. The government has been gradually taking away from us our 'unalienable Rights', those endowed to us by our Creator ..... life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Those are not rights given by the government, but given to us as a gift from God.
Paine said in 'The Crisis':
"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but "to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER" and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God." (Note: wherever you see "Britain" just substitute "U.S. Government")
Plain and simple, we have waited too long to act and the penalty for our acquiescence over the years, our mostly silent acceptance of the imposition of tyranny, is that we are going to have to pay the high price for FREEDOM again. Now we shall have to fight to take our country back, but when will 'We the People" have the will to fight? As Patrick Henry said, in his 'Liberty or Death' speech:
"They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength but irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? ........ The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged!"
The "delusive phantom of hope". Patrick Henry, in 1775, makes a better argument than our politicians in 2012 against the brand of "hope" we've been force-fed for the last three years. The time is NOW. As Jim Robinson says, "the Rebellion is ON, join or die." It's not a platitude, it's the TRUTH. Churchill said:
"Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
So what does all this have to do with a prayer thread? It's been a bit of a hike to get here, but the bottom line is that our very souls are at stake, as is the soul of America. Are we going to betray God and continue to go along to get along with what we know is evil and wicked? God says "But if any nation does not listen, I will completely uproot and destroy it. (Jeremiah 12:17) God also says "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."(2 Chronicles 7:14)
We need God's help. We cannot do this alone. We are God's soldiers in this fight against the evil and wickedness that has invaded the very fabric of our culture and is bringing America to her knees. We need to get on our knees to keep America off of hers. God is with us, He loves us, He loves this country and has blessed it. Let us gather ourselves in prayer and then commit ourselves to action.
Almighty God, we are calling your name. We humbly beg your forgiveness for the wickedness we have allowed to pervade our country and our lives. We are sorry, more sorry that we can say, for allowing your gifts of life and liberty to be so badly squandered, but you know our hearts and can see the sorrow and contrition we feel, even as we struggle with the words. Please forgive us. We ask for your help in reclaiming our country and returning it to a country that serves and pleases you. While we are your soldiers in this fight, we cannot do it alone. We need your help and Divine guidance to defeat the evil that has overtaken us. Help us find within ourselves and among our people the Courage, Strength, and the Will to break and throw off the chains of tyranny that are being forged to enslave us. Dear Lord, hear our prayer as we call upon you in our time of need. Come to the aid of your people and our nation and deliver us from evil. We acknowledge that yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory now and for ever as we pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord. Amen.
I am posting this, even though there are so many more excellent prayers on this thread. We have many people saying this particular prayer aloud 3 times during the day tomorrow by 7 pm, when polls close in Florida. If you feel led, please join us by faith. We pray the prayer aloud, touching our computer screens as we pray, in a prayer of agreement under God in Heaven.
“And if you two of you shall agree on earth, as touching anything you shall ask, it shall be done by your Father, who art in Heaven.”
Having Done All, Stand.
Pray The Prayer - Aloud - x3 by 1900. Publish widely.
Fret not. He Who promised is able.
Lord, we are true believers. You have been our refuge for all of our lives. We have waited on you with holy fear and sacred awe.
And now, with the Holy Spirit to help us, we open our mouths.
Like David, we have marshaled our thoughts like men of war and, like arrows, we take straight aim with our prayers.
Lord, we have looked well and long at our opponents we have seen the white of each eye. Our vision is fixed upon each one. We direct our prayers with all of our strength, we let our arrows fly.
When the arrows and shaft, and our prayers, have left our hands, Lord, then will we look up. We will look and see where our arrows have gone and what effect each has had. We expect, Oh, Lord, according to Your Word, an answer to our prayers, which we offer you now.
We are doing something that is real. We address ourselves to you, O, God, whom we cannot see, though truly and really you are present with us now. We may not be able to touch or hear You, or by physical senses apprehend you, but you are present with us now, as though we are speaking to a friend of flesh and blood, with us, right here, right now.
Like Abraham, we have taken upon ourselves to speak to you, Lord God; We who are but dust and ashes. We are humbled, Lord, we are bold, and we importune your mercy through Our Saviors blood and Name.
We know we have no right to the things that we are asking for; we only obtain these as gifts of grace through your Son Jesus. We stand before you under the patronage of Our Blessed Redeemer. It is no longer we who speak, but Christ Jesus who speaks through us. And though it is we who plead, we plead His wounds, His life, His death, His Blood, His sufferings, His Sacrifice, His Resurrection. Himself.
Our prayer to you, O Lord, is simple and it is clear. We are here to make our petitions plainly before you. Our words are few, our hearts are fervent.
As for our petitions, Lord, we will not let go of thee, except you bless us, except you bless this country, except you bless this land. Except you bless Newt Gingrich, and bring him victory tonight. These victories we seek for your honor, the honor of Your Word. The honor of our land.
We have filled our mouths with arguments; by those arguments, the gates of victory are opened for us, and for Newt Gingrich.
We plead with you now with each, our strong reasons. What we seek from you is great in import and advance; important to your people, important to our land.
Our arguments to you, O Lord, are funded with your grace. It is by grace, by grace alone that sinners, such as we, obtain anything from you.
Lord, we seek your blessings, we seek double blessings. We seek your blessings in the obtaining, we seek your blessings in our seeking. Our prayers are our blessing.
We pray and bathe ourselves in your holy cooling stream. We escape the heat of the summers sun. We mount on eagles wings above, and get into the clear Heaven where you, Our God, do dwell. We enter in to your treasure-place and enrich ourselves in Your inexhaustible storehouse. We bring to remembrance your blessing for us through Christ Jesus, how immeasurable, and done through love.
We cast off every burden. We tear away our rags. We shake off, we shake out, every disease. And by faith, we cast off Newts every burden, we tear away Newts rags. We shake off, we shake out, his every bodily disease. We are filled with spiritual vigor and each of us, including Newt, reaches the highest point of your Chosen People, Supernatural Christian health and healing, as we kneel before the Lord Jesus, who is our Healer.
We plead before you, Jehovah, your holy attributes. We take hold of your justice and your mercy, your faithfulness and truth, your wisdom. Lord, your righteous attributes are our battering rams by which each of us open the gates of Heaven.
And after your holy attributes, Lord, we plead your promises. You have said to each one of us, Surely I will do thee good.
We hold You to your word, all that you have promised; We know you will do us good as you have promised. We know you will do Newt good, as you have promised. Do unto us, unto this land, unto this people, unto us all that thou hast said - Lord, surely do us good. Lord, surely do Newt good today in Florida.
We hold your promise notes inside our hearts, we hold them tightly in our hands. We hold your Word, we engage your honor. We know that not one good thing has failed of all that You have promised; all You have said has come to pass, all you have promised will surely come to pass.
We invoke your eternal promises with certainty. We know your will, O Lord; We have studied. We know your will is in your promises. We cannot give You rest till you fulfill your promises, until you fulfill your Word, until you fulfill your will, your will of good and victory for Newt in Florida.
You let it be known, near and afar, when you speak, Lord, you mean to act. You have spoken, you will act. We have spoken, Lord, and that out loudly. We have put our trust in you. Deliver us deliver Newt - deliver Florida and all our land - bring forth these victories we seek from You.
Arise, O Lord, and do these things, do these many great things. Let not thy honor be cast into the dust. Stir up Thyself, and awake, O Lord, to Newts judgment and his cause his cause of winning Florida this day; exceedingly, abundantly, beyond what anyone can believe or imagine. Stir up Theyself, and awake, O Lord, to Newts judgment and his cause.
They have provoked you with their words against Newt, their actions and their deeds, their lies; all this they have carried out in secret and in light; they have brought much harm to this people, much harm have they done to this land, much harm have they tried to do to Newt Gingrich.. It is time. Stir up thyself and awake to Newts judgment and his cause; stretch forth thy hand, O Lord, it is time to help your people. It is time to help Newt Gingrich win a great victory in Florida. It is time to heal our land.
Arise, this moment, wake up thy zeal, let your sacred passions burn. Come, Lord Jehovah, come, show what your bare arm can do. Show what your bare arm can do for the judgment and cause of Newt Gingrich.
We plead for the sorrows of your people, sorrows like a shadow across this land. Bring down those who traffic in the suffering of others, who maintain the pain of others to further their position and their power. Come and deliver us from their hands and every devious purpose; purposes to batter freedom, deny the law of liberty, and your life of freedom inside of us. Show everyone now, O Lord, how much it is you love your people. How much it is you love Newt Gingrich.
Lord, You brought us to this place, to this date, you have not brought us this far to put us to shame.
You are the unchanging, Everlasting to Everlasting; you are today as you have done in the past. Tarry not, O Lord; make haste. Chase down those who have not listened, who have refused to hear us, though we have pleaded with them - over and over and over again. Bring down the strongholds of the heedless ones, turn their positions and their power asunder, drive each one to defeat; cause them to run straightway to their shame, let them trouble your people no longer. Let Mitt Romney trouble Newt no longer.
Now, have mercy, O Lord, on our iniquities, for the iniquities of your people are great.
Forget the greatness of our sins, O Lord, forget the greatness of Newts sin. Make us worthy through the greatness of your mercy; take us by the hand, your great right hand, mighty to deliver. Deliver Newt to victory tonight, O Lord.
You have ever and always been our help, O God. Leave us not now, neither forsake us. Leave not your people now, neither forsake them. Neither forsake or leave Newt Gingrich. Leave not our land, O Lord, and neither forsake it.
Remember, what your servant, Moses, said: You did bring this people up out of Egypt. Do not leave your work unfinished. You have fought the first battle. End the campaign. Go on and on and on until You have wrought for us this victory. This victory of the Presidency for Newt Gingrich.
Remember those who changed money behind closed doors, who violated our charge; who used their powers in service of darkness, who refused to give account overturn them now, bring reckoning; spare not. Tear down their fortresses one by one the north the south the east the west all throughout the center. They have stolen our moment, our liberty, they seek to own the sacred of our lives.
Sear with light the plans they have made in secret, bring every proposal - every draft to nought; for the chains where they would bind us, that they fashion even now, bring them disgrace, defeat and downfall; with your strong right hand, your bare arm, all your holy muscle, turn them utterly asunder, send them to their eternal derision. Let them never trouble us let them never trouble Newt let them never trouble this land - again.
Oh, by thy Glory and Honor, by thy very existence, indeed Thou art God, show yourself for the help of your people, for the help of your land. For the help of Newt Gingrich.
Your Son Himself has said to each of us: if we need anything of you all that you have belongs to Him all that He has belongs to us. We are here, here for this people, and This Place, and we speak forth the name of Jesus, Our Lord.
We waver not, O Lord; our faith does not stagger.
We plead in His name the name which shakes the gates of hell, which the hosts of Heaven obey. Hear us, Father, feel the sacred power of your sons pleas in our behalf.
We are soldiered by His grief, and the cries, the groans of His sufferings: we cannot accept denial. We have filled our mouths with prayer, with arguments, until there is room for nothing else.
We have opened our mouths to you, O Lord, for this peoples sake and for Newt Gingrichs sake. Our needs are great, our askings are great. Your supply, your answer, and our victory shall be great.
Begin this moment, arise, O Lord, now.
Stir up Thyself, and awake, once more, to Newts judgment and his cause, and his victory in Florida this day.
In Jesus name, we pray.
And all the people AGREED, and all the people said, “Amen and Amen.”
Coming to you in this the night watch when all is calm to petition you again for this election event in Florida.
Lord, you have encouraged us to be specific in our requests Lord, and that we may enter boldly into your presence to make these requests....but we are so limited in how to express the inexpressible when our hearts are as deeply concerned for our nation and it's people as in these times. Even so we come......
Lord just as Newt has asked forgiveness in his life...we too have asked forgiveness for our infidelity in having left our ‘First Love’... and or grown luke warm in that which we too first committed to you....
....Some of us, as with Peter, have walked with you at a distance, ......others have turned their backs to you altogether, ...and yes some have warmed themselves near the enemy's fire.......but Lord we are here together... now...just as we are......hearts and minds looking to you and boldly asking that you show yourself...your power... to move the course of this Florida vote to that which would be favorable to our country and it's people...Divert and distract those who have “other” hidden agendas for this country....stand in the way Lord God.
We also intercede for those who believe they are doing the right thing but are blinded to the realities as they are.....Remove their blindness Lord so that they might see the truth of what's really at stake, let their eyes and ears hear and see thru yours and not their own....move their will so that it is aligned with yours.
Lord... we also pray for Newt...Let this night be one of resting in you. You know His frame Lord...you knew him before he was formed in the womb, and you knew he would come to the place he is....Bless his great efforts tomorrow Lord, as He has asked of you...let the vote be favorable to him....in Jesus name .....for His Glory... may you show favor to Newt.
Remember Gideon Lord.
May the words of your lips and the meditations of your heart be acceptable in His sight....and may you truly know the peace that passes all understanding in Christ Jesus just as you’ve asked...and when that time comes, as it does for us all, may you truly know that even now your work has not been in vain...and that all which was done, is being done, and will be done in His great name will follow you home on that glorious day.
His Spirit is moving...please continue reading..
A specific time to pray tomorrow, a specific prayer, if you will join.
Please, everyone, take the time to read posts 65 through 70. May these prayers be answered...
MY prayer, also, is His protection against the spiritual battle that will be waged against we who pray. Lord, hear our prayers...
Dear Lord my heart is heavy and I can’t sleep I fear for my lost brothers and sisters, I pray the scales will fall away from their eyes Lord, and that they will accept you in all your glory and divinity, Dear Lord please open their eyes before it’s too late. Please help the voters in Florida today to base their votes on your truth not on who someone says is the most electable.
In Jesus Holy name I pray
God Will Make a Way
Lord Send Your Angels
Abba father, we your children acknowledge your presence among us and humbly fall on our knees. If we have wounded any souls today or caused someone to go astray we ask forgiveness.
Our nation is in dire need, we humbly ask that we feel your strength and do your will.
Bless Newt, a broken man, gird him with your armor. Lead all of us that we may not only stand by him, but in doing so stand by you. For it is in standing together with You as the body of Christ that we can tackle the evils of the world.
May all of our nation see the light of truth, in the name of Jesus, AMEN
Right on! Gingrich must win, Romney must be defeated or we are toast!!
Prayers up, everyone!!
Thank you for that passage Gramma.
Give us strength Lord, and courage, as each of us works to restore this nation to the vision of our founders.
In His holy name.
In this case I am minded of the Serentity Prayer as being appropriate:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Prayers are needed desperately. So is the courage to fight.
Things need to change. We all know this.
“The LORD will give strength to his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.”
God the Father of Mercies: you see how sinful and bloody-handed the West has become. Our countrymen have sacrificed the lives of your innocents to their own strange Gods of convenience. We ourselves are very far from what you intend us to be: selfish, judging, wrathful, self-absorbed.
Have mercy on us Father. Forgive us our many sins. However it comes about, please bring us a Conservative President who will be an enemy to tyranny and corruption, and who will act to protect the unborn.
We especially pray for Newt Gingrich. You know him Lord: all his vices and weaknesses, his secret chivalries, the true state of his soul: all these things are known to you.
If it is Your will may he win the nomination and go on to become the President of the United States.
+ We ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, Amen. +
God Bless You and thank you ever so much for this wonderful prayer thread. I have been and will continue praying that our Heavenly Father will step in and see that the right man, Newt Gingrich, can win this race in Florida and continue on and on to win the National Election.
Thank you for the ping to this thread, onyx! Its wonderful and I know God can step in and help Newt pull this out. Everything is possible with God.
I’m linking this outstanding video to this prayer thread which Jim has on his front page....it is so worth the listen as our “Few Good MEN” rise to serve with Newt...and this under the God of our nation.
Thank you for your prayers to the glory of God. Prayers in the name of Jesus Christ who died on the cross, was buried, and raised in the flesh on the third day by the hand of God the Father, in fulfillment of the Holy Scriptures.
Pray from the heart. This is the liberty of our faith, and it requires no material thing to touch.
Ask Christ to come into your heart. Repent, and pray to the Good Lord.
And on earth, good will toward men.
With this in mind, spend as much time as possible helping Newt Gingrich in his political campaign.
Father God of Abraham and Isaac,
Today especially, on Florida election day, we pray for our nation.
Never before has the battle been so plain between a “nation under God” and a nation ruled only by godless human tyranny.
Lord God, we praise Your Holy Name, and stand in awe of Your mighty powers among the universes beyond imagining!
You Alone are the legitimate power over our lives.
You Alone are the giver of Life and Law.
Stir the hearts of all Your registered Florida followers today, Lord, to go out and vote for Your Will for our country;
And inspire all Your other servants across the nation to pray earnestly throughout the day for Your Will to be done in this election.
Help us to be of service to Your kingdom, no matter the outcome, and not be weary in carrying out the work before us to reclaim this land as an expression of Your glory and mercy.
“Please, everyone, take the time to read posts 65 through 70. May these prayers be answered...” Amen! Amen!
I join in prayer for Newt Gingrich and our country.
Amen! And AMEN!!!
Thank you so very much, Miss Magnolia, for this splendid essay/post and the sublime prayer with which you conclude it.
Amen and Amen
Thank you for your prayer and for the ping, Albion.
I have been in fervent prayer for this election, and for our nation. YOUR will be done, O LORD!
I’m putting it in God’s hands.
I am curious though. If Romney wins is everyone here going to take that as God’s will?
In the name of our Lord and Savior
