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.
Also, thanks to Wagglebee for pinging this.
Jim, don't worry about not being a trained theologian. God's power is made perfect in weakness (II Corinthians 12:9).
From the confessions of my own theological tradition:
Q1. What is your only comfort in life and death?
A1. That I am not my own,(1), but belong with body and soul, both in life and in death,(2) to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ.(3) He has fully paid for all my sins with His precious blood,(4) and has set me free from all the power of the devil.(5) He also preserves me in such a way(6) that without the will of my heavenly Father not a hair can fall from my head;(7) indeed, all things must work together for my salvation.(8) Therefore, by His Holy Spirit He also assures me of eternal life(9) and makes me heartily willing and ready from now on to live for Him.(10)
Q2. What do you need to know in order to live and die in the joy of this comfort?
A2. First, how great my sins and misery are;(11) second, how I am delivered from all my sins and misery;(12) third, how I am to be thankful to God for such deliverance.(13)

You are very much like a pastor, Jim Robinson.
Definitions: In Latin, the word for shepherd is "pastor". In English, "pastor" is generally used to mean a clergyman or preacher. However in the scriptures it refers exclusively to the shepherds (elders) of a congregation, not the preachers or evangelists.
It is a privilege to have you as a wise leader. One of your most endearing qualities is your humility.
Ping to Jim Robinson’s prayer for God’s praise and our blessing.
Beautiful heartfelt prayer, boss.
Peace be with you.
Am blessed to see you posting your own prayers for our beleagured Republic.
God, imho, is not so keenly interested in slavish church attendance nor any other external religiosity, per se.
He IS super interested in a HEART-FELT
RELATIONSHIP THAT PUTS HIM FIRST ABOVE ALL ELSE 24/7/365 AS WELL AS WE CAN with His Holy Spirit’s help, manage.
And the prayer of a cowboy with no book larnin’ but from his heart is greatly to be preferred by God than the hogwash that comes from most seminaries.
It is also fitting and helpful for you to be vulnerable enough to express your fears, own your fears.
Feeling the fear and DOING THE RIGHT THING ANYWAY is what heros are made of.
Denying the fear is stupidity and contributes to foolhardiness.
Vulnerability is quite paradoxical.
Sincere, wise and fitting truly HUMBLE vulnerability may seem foolish on the surface. However, it earns incredible power and currency with God almighty and with those looking on—particularly those under one’s influence and authority.
The opposite of pride, denial, bluster, etc. achieve the opposite.
It’s good leadership to see you growing in the humble vulnerability dept.
God attends to the humble and resists the proud, as His word repeatedly declares.
And, it is good to see that your awareness, as evidenced by your expression of overwhelming fear, is catching up with the dreadful realities all of us are facing—in our beleagured Republic as well as all around the globe.
Though it appears that there is much you are still not quite aware of that is as true or truer than the things you may be newly aware of. It is later than probably most of us think.
I know of a prophetic source of some merit who thinks that Fresno will be protected Supernaturally by God. He’s a professor at your college there—Bill (William) Rice. He could be right. I’m a bit skeptical. I think at least the lower lying areas may end up a bit wet. I don’t know how high on the mountains the water is likely to go but I sure think the valley will be flooded. Therefore, I’d pray earnestly about taking the Texan Freeper up on their offer. Contact Bill Rice, if you see fit. He’ll probably give you a candid response. He’s a PhD marketing consultant/professor. Has traveled a lot for the State Dept.
However, I wouldn’t want to be within 400 miles or so of the Texas coast, nor lower in elevation than . . . I don’t know what the highes possible is in Texas. LOL. And I wouldn’t want to be too close to Mexico. The panhandle might be OK. I expect Houston to be nuked. Dallas will be a super disaster for one reason or another.
imho, we have very limited time left. So many sources are insisting that 2012 WILL DEFINITELY SEE CHAOS and/or disaster in many of our streets . . . whether from natural disaster, terrorists, false flag operations and/or WW3, I’m pretty much convinced that some level of that is quite likely before the SElection or shortly thereafter—more likely before, I’d think.
I think the civil war meme so often reported on by so many sources has now moved from the plausible to the highly likely category in my thinking and feeling. They REALLY DO WANT TO UTTERLY DESTROY OUR REPUBLIC. They are very determined and very capable from a list of ways.
We do ourselves nor our Republic nor our loved ones any good by being immobilized and certainly not by eating our own.
We MUST SEEK GOD FIRST AND SUPPORT ALL WHO DO SEEK GOD FIRST AND WHO SEEK TO DO GOOD IN THE LAND.
There is NO TIME LEFT for ANY other choice.
The petty side issues MUST be seen as petty side issues and set aside or ignored accordingly.
There is no longer any other rational choice.
You have come late to the realization that the reach, extent, powers of Marxist satanic globalism have long been entrenched and advancing aggressively in our land and around the world. Better late than never. Some at FR are still dragging their heels and resisting waking up. They may need set aside/ignored as fitting.
In any case, heart-felt prayers and heart-felt humble vulnerability before God and man is a good position for any leader to take. And those who resist sharing such a position with you are good to keep an eye on if not keep at arm’s length.
I’ll hush, for now, for a change.
I’m sorry, but the GOP has only been an opposition party in hollow, surface ways as called for in the script of the globalists as a charade.
The globalists have manipulated all sides against the middle at least since 1915. Many authorities would insist much earlier.
The evidence is now conclusive. I didn’t want to believe it either. I refused to believe it for far too long.
The GOP has carried out the globalists will almost as much as the overt Marxist globalists have. Bush SR and Kissinger under Reagan held Reagan’s nose to the globalist grindstone and insured that he did as he was ordered.
I still love Reagan and his love of the Biblical End Times as a topic. But I have to face facts. He was a great President partly because he was a great actor. And he told many of us what we were aching to hear from our President. Yet, he followed the globalist script handed him to the letter.
Kissinger and Bush SR were and are horrifically dedicated NWO globalists seriously interested in aggressivley reducing the world population and establishing the satanic antiChrist as world leader. That’s just the truth.
Dear Lord, hear our humble prayers.
Lawd, Nobuddy in heah but us chickin’s
and we show do need hep.
Father, God Almighty, you alone know the future near and far. You know our hearts and our thoughts afar off.
Lord, we need you to breathe, think, eat, sleep, rise up, sit down, walk, talk, write, any and everything we do, we desperately need YOU, Lord.
Apart from you we can not only do nothing good, we can do nothing at all.
We desperately need your provision, guidance and protection, Lord.
We desperately need your direction in how to walk closer to you, Lord. There is NO OTHER REFUGE BUT YOU, LORD.
No government, no guns, no anything can protect like You, can, Lord.
May we have the courage and ability to use whatever arms you provide us to protect our lives and families. But Lord, in the final analysis, it is only your protection, your Spirit’s guidance that is of any lasting value at all.
Help us to know and obey YOUR PRIORITIES, LORD, In Jesus’ Name.
...and, all GOD’S people said, “Amen, and AMEN!”
Thanks, Quix. I prayed Jim’s prayer out loud, and I will do the same with yours.
Blessed be the name of The Lord.
If not the greatest, one of the greatest posts ever on freerepublic or any website on planet earth. God bless you, Jim Robinson. Thank you, sir.
Yow! It sounds horrible. - I do think we need to not forsake the gathering of ourselves together with other Christian believers as we see the day of the Lord growing ever closer day by day. - I’ll admit it’s scary contemplating what the Obama regime is cooking up in order to stay in power. Since it appears that by and large the American people aren’t quite as stupid as they need them to be, the chaos that these Piven accolytes may try to foment looks pretty scary.
Bumping Jim Robinson’s Prayer: This is a do-not-miss post!
However, there are 365 “FEAR NOT’s” in the Bible.
One for every day.
Bumping Jim Robinson’s prayer!
