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.
Our Western culture is rotting from within but Christian missionaries are making amazing progress in Asia and Africa, long dominated by tyrants and communists.
Either someday the Americas and Europe will be seen as the backward lands of heathens and the forsaken continents will replace them in God’s sight or God is preparing us for the Great Rapture and He wants to make sure all nations have heard of Christ so no one living has the excuse that they weren’t told before they were judged.
Either way, God’s plan is just and righteous. He will not be mocked and He will not be defeated.
Amen, and God bless you, Jim.
May God bless you sir for you have echoed my thoughts.
This country, based on God-given rights and not rights bestowed by any government, was going along just fine until us good folks stood back and let the idiots kick God out of the public domain. We didn’t do much when school prayers were banned, nor did we riot at Christmas display bans, removal of the Ten Commandments from any public building (Aren’t We the People, the ‘public’?(, and so on and so on and so on. If ‘they’ can banish God, then there are no RIGHTS derived from that God that they have decreed to not exist.
We’ve lost our way and we’ve allowed the government to decide for us that the path never was defined by any God. The Founding Fathers understood that our republic was meant for those of good faith and morals, yet we elect people lacking those qualities time after time. I pray for my country, but, sadly, when I look around anymore I don’t see the country I knew. I pray my country will return in all it’s Glory - one nation, UNDER GOD - like we were meant to be.
Please Pray for our Republic.
Address all prayers to Jim Robinson.
Thanks and God Bless
I stand in agreement.
God knew exactly what you were going to write and exactly what you meant well before you woke up this morning. In my experience He is far more impressed with sincerity and right intentions than elegance and punctuation. I think he is well pleased with it. God Bless.
I am not American, for if I will say I was it will be lie!!
But, I love America of United States, and either I am wrong or right, I stand by one thing: TRUTH!!
Liberty is not a gift nor is trust, it is earned in heart of a person as its faith from grace from God himself.
There is battle going on, and hell of a battle we are facing, does it mean to be weak I say, let them try, question is — will we as humans of different countries give up? God himself decides not us, but I will say here WHO IS LIKE GOD!!!!!!!!!!

Jim, you’ve always shown strength and courage... it shows how dangerous you feel the threat to our nation truly is... Prayers for our nation ..
Amen. These are scary times. Both presidential candidates embrace sins God says are abominable to Him. It’s hard to see where the country goes from here. But we just have to trust...He always takes care of His children.
I liked your prayer. I don’t care much for flowery language meant to impress. I believe in just speaking to God from the heart.
... and all the people said, AMEN!!
Standing with you in prayer for our nation.
“If 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.” — 2Chronicles 7:14
Thank you for praying for us, Jim. We are left praying for a miracle, a miracle of mercy, and if God has truly lifted His right arm of blessing from our nation, and now readies to wield His left arm of due justice, then I pray daily for my own salvation, that of my family and my beloved friends, that we are able to stand in His Mercy alone for we are not worthy, but for Christ paying our sin debt.
May our lamps be found full of oil. God bless your lips in prayers for us.
Thanks. And, Amen.
I join in your prayer, dear Jim Robinson!
Yes!! Lord Hear Us!!
It is by this faith, and only this faith, that will see us to victory over this evil. The armor of Christ is our most potent weapon...
