Posted on 05/14/2012 1:49:34 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
Our Almighty God in Heaven, We pray for this nation that your servants, our great forefathers, established on this continent so many years ago under what we still believe today to be your divine guidance. They recognized the great truths that we are all created equal by you and endowed by you with our unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Our ancestors sailed across the seas seeking relief from persecution and to seek your blessings and to establish colonies where they would be free to live and worship in your name and in the manner they believed to be of your will. With your divine help and guidance, they carved out what would later become the freest and greatest nation on your creation out of the wilderness, and gave thanks and prayed for your approval and blessings.
They later declared their independence from the tyrants overseas and fought a great war of independence with your divine guidance to establish the original free states, and then later joined together as a federation of states, united under a common constitution to become a nation among nations. And they consented to grant to their newly established federal government certain limited powers to best defend our new nation and to help it grow strong as one nation, under your Providence, with liberty and justice for all, and they reserved all other rights and powers to the states and the people. We were to govern ourselves as sovereign states and sovereign people, under God, and they prayed for your blessings. And all was good.
Our ancestors later fought a great civil war to rid our nation of the scourge of slavery and to ensure that this nation, established under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, all the people, shall not perish from the earth.
We as a nation fought many wars to forge and keep our freedom and to rid the world of evil tyrants and mass murdering collectivist dictators and totalitarians who were taking over and enslaving their own people and those of neighboring nations. Our great armies and warriors marched in your name, asked for your blessings, risked and sacrificed their lives, and fought and won the great battles, not for treasure or territory, but to defend and restore your blessings of freedom and justice for all people. And we prayed and gave thanks and asked for your blessings. All glory is to our Almighty God in Heaven. All the good we seek is sought in your name and we pray it is your will to be done.
Now once again our great nation and great people face a great evil. And this time it is an insidious evil that has crept in from foreign shores and during the last 100 years has infiltrated into every institution of our society and is poisoning the minds of our youth and destroying our moral society. It is the scourge of Marxism, communism, socialism, collectivism, totalitarianism, and the related cultures of sodomy, depravity and death. We believe it is unholy and destructive to the society and free nation that was established in your name and under your divine guidance and with your blessings.
Dear Lord, We pray for the strength and wisdom to resist this latest new form of insidious tyranny that has now gripped our nation from within. This evil scourge has already completely taken over one of our two great major political parties from which the majority of our elected government officials are selected, and is now threatening to take over the other. If they are allowed to let the sodomites, the abortionists, the socialists, the corrupt and greedy power mongers and evil-doers take over the majority of our elected offices, after they've already taken over our government and educational institutions at all levels and have even infiltrated into our churches and houses of worship, then we fear greatly for our future as a nation under God and for the independence and liberty of our posterity.
Dear Lord, the collectivists, sodomites and evil-doers are inside the gates. We pray once again for your divine guidance and that as we fight this great battle for liberty, we are doing so not only in your name, but with your blessings.
We pray for miraculous delivery from evil.
Your will be done.
In Jesus' name we pray.
I find myself repeating this passage:
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
I am seeking strength and courage.
From ypur mouth to GOD’s ears.
Amen, Jim. Amen.
You done just fine.
God can do extraordinary works with ordinary folks.
If you start a Pray for America thread, please add me to the ping.
“But I do greatly fear for our nation and our freedom and I sincerely pray that what we do is in accordance to God’s will. The fear has overwhelmed me.”
I empathize. For me, I had to come to grips with definitions. America, the nation, the United States, the United States government are each different things; although there is overlap, there is not a perfect congruence. I pray for America, and for Americans. I pray for my culture, which does NOT flow through New England, the tail which has wagged the American dog for far too many generations.
As for the government in Washington, the leading political parties and their leaders, may God grant them all that they have earned. To the last measure.
Fear for the future is not of God. You are under attack, and you are under attack because you are still holding out. Check out Psalm 2 to see how the story ends. There is no need to fear for the future, however dire it appears at close hand.
Remember this too. Each soul is immortal. All nations are fleeting. Christ came to redeem souls. He did not deal in trifles like the Roman empire, or any of its successors. He came to redeem what truly mattered. People. Limited, fallen, contrite people who believe in Him.
Amen, and I agree with you in prayer, Dear Patriot!!
“I’m not a preacher and not a biblical scholar.”
The Apostles weren’t *scholars* either.
You did fine. I pray the Good Lord hears and answers.
But, our God is a merciful God. He hears our humble prayers and with Him all things are possible. He may still turn from His wrath, forgive our sin and heal our land.
Regardless, although He may punish a nation, he still loves us and blesses those who truly love Him and desire righteousness. We do our best fighting on our knees.
"I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread." - Psalm 37:25
Thank you very much. I’m sure you are right.
I probably should add that my overwhelming fear is not for myself. My days are already numbered. I, too, fear for the survival of our nation. And for the survival of liberty for our children and grandchildren.
I pray for strength and courage for all of us to continue the resistance. It would be so easy to roll over and take the easy way out. To let them have their big tent and their homosexualist, abortionist and statist ways. But then we would no longer be one nation under God. Give them this and they will take all of our freedoms, all of our sovereignty and eventually give up America to United Nations control. The socialists, statists, sodomites, abortionists, “international law” types, are already installed in the congress and the judiciary. It won’t take much more backsliding to get ‘er done. If we lose the GOP as an opposition party, it’ll be a long time before we can build a new one.
Pray for a miracle at Tampa!!
Pray for the strength to resist tyranny!!
The enemy within: There is no greater threat.
