Prayer for tonight's debate
My Heart | 10/22/2012 | a Christian

Posted on 10/22/2012 4:12:07 PM PDT by CThomasFan

Just a prayer for tonight's debate.


TOPICS: Government; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: 2012debates; dsj; election; prayer; prayerrequest
I'm just a simple Christian, but I believe in the power of prayer.

Will some of y'all join with me in prayer for tonight's debate? Just read it and agree in your heart at the end if it matches your heart feeling.

Father, We don't deserve your mercy on us as a nation. We have failed you so much. We come before you tonight in the Name of Your Son Jesus and pray that the real heart motives of President Obama would be exposed. We as a nation are in your hands. If there is a power of darkness driving his ambitions, please let that be exposed tonight so that we will not be deceived by his words. Please protect the viewers from his enchantment and charisma, but let them be repulsed by the spirit behind his words. Lord, would you be merciful and let there be a resounding landslide election of Romney that confirms that You still have a remnant of people here that want leaders that stand for righteousness? To the praise of your own glory and righteousness. In Jesus Name, AMEN

Joining you in prayer.

May Mitt Romney feel the angels gathering around him this evening, bringing him peace, calm and a clear vision and the ability to articulate his thoughts so that all listening can understand. Bring your peace to him, help him display the kind of leadership and presence this nation so sorely needs. May the light of truth shine through into every corner of the minds of Americans tonight.

Dear Lord, I don’t often ask favors from you, but this evening I would like to ask for strength, vision, wisdom, and courage for Gov Romney. Gov Romney is a good a pure man, and many of us wish that the voters have revelations across the Land, to vote for Romney. Let Obama say what he will even though he may finally understand why he gave up the Presidency for America’s good.

2 Chronicles 7:14 ~ If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Father, have mercy upon the remnant of your people ... have mercy upon the body of Christ who so seek your face and forgiveness ... remember those who stand for the nation Israel, that blessings might come to those who bless her.

Psalm 37

12 The wicked plot against the righteous
and gnash their teeth at them;
13 but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
for he knows their day is coming.
14 The wicked draw the sword
and bend the bow to bring down the poor and needy,
to slay those whose ways are upright.
15 But their swords will pierce their own hearts,
and their bows will be broken.
16 Better the little that the righteous have
than the wealth of many wicked.

May it be that this night, Heavenly Father, confusion will reign in the camp of the enemy, that every evil word and deed will fall back upon those who would bring harm. Grace Governor Romney with wisdom, clarity, ease and calm ... may he find great favor with the people. Open the eyes and ears of the electorate that they might recoil from those who would deny opportunity and ability and desire to participate in a free and open society. Restore unto us the desire to be good stewards of all that you have given, that we might live to the honor of your name.

Hear our prayer, O Lord ..
Hear our prayer, O Lord ..
Incline thine ear to us
And grant us thy peace.. Amen and Amen

And may it be, Most Merciful Father, that this night You would break the backs of the media, that the flood gates of truth would open to wash away every evil deed and plan, sweeping away those who would do harm, that these United States might be cleansed.

May it be so, O Lord, may it be so, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ we pray, Amen ...

I join you in your prayers. AMEN and AMEN.

Amen to all the other prayers offered up on this Thread. Lord we need your help.

Lord cause Obama to stumble and work himself into his own trap as he did with the "Act of Terror" LIE/statements in the last debate.

Lord I know that was your doing. I know it was YOU that caused Obama to use his own EGO to trap himself in his own lie, now Romney can finish him off tonight. I thank YOU for that. I had asked for a stumbling block, you honored my prayer, yet in an unexpected manner. WOW

Lord, it is said that Pride comes before a fall, grant that we see it in full bloom tonight. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Our prayers are working, its time we get on our knees,

Just like during the first and second debates, we have to claim authority in the spirit and bind this evil gaining strength in our nation,

“Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil as he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke you.” Jude 1:9

I have never witnessed spiritual warfare at work like we’re seeing right now,

Please pray often during the debate tonight, that the lord will rebuke this spirit of the antichrist, which the apostle John told us was already at work in the world even in his day,

“Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world”

We have authority to ask (with his will to be done first and foremost) to rebuke and bind this spirit coming against this nation and its people, we have to prayerfully claim this authority in his holy name,

“Verily I say unto you, whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be what has been bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be what has been loosed in heaven.

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth concerning anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 18:18-19

Dear Heavenly Father:

We bow down before you asking for forgiveness of our sinful nature. We ask for a calmness be placed upon Mitt Romney tonight. We ask for eyes and ears across this nation to be opened to the good and evil on this debate tonight. Give Mitt Romney a clear and open mind to be able to speak with knowledge and clear facts. We give you all the glory and praise for these things we ask in your most previous name.

Amen

A prayer is never just a just. Prayer is speaking to our Almighty and compassionate God. Prayer is changing things forever. With prayer we are not merely watchers of the debate, but powerful participators. Prayer shows God that we understand that it is He who determines history, and we are putting our faith in Him into action.

I both prayed and fasted for this debate. I reveal this in hopes that others will pray and fast about this upcoming election. Fasting is our way of showing God just how serious we are about our prayer requests. Fasting always accompanied prayer whenever the people who lived in the time of The Bible were really serious about their requests to God. This election is really serious for our entire Country and the future of our children. Let's be seriously involved in it's outcome by prayer and fasting to Almighty God.

Amen Bellflower.
There is a really good book out called The Prayer Ministry of the Church that talks about the importance of standing together with one another in prayer. it is a great read and really helpful in understanding “why pray if God is all powerful”, and also why there is so much spiritual resistance to it.

Thank you for standing together with all the brethren in prayer!

Thank you, Lord, for answering our prayers ... grace was given to Governor Romney and unseemliness was given to President Obama. May we not neglect your admonition, to pray for those in authority over us, for you are not willing that any should perish.

Open the eyes of the people, O Lord, to the reality of this election ... may we choose wisely and well. We come against any and all forms of backlash and fraud, and in the Name of Jesus, we send them back into the pit from whence they come. Cleanse us, Heavenly Father, that we, through you, might cleanse this land.

In the Name of Jesus, may it be so, Amen ...
