Casting all your care upon Him;

Father God,

How difficult it is to comprehend the truth: that You, the Creator of the Universe---You who hung the stars in the sky and shaped the mountains and valleys---that You would care for us. And yet, we know it is true. Even more, You want to carry our burdens for us so that we do not need to fear or fret. Lord, You are an amazing God---full of grace, wisdom, and strength.

Father, we pray that You would carry the burdens of our military men and women, as well as the burdens of their families. We ask You to help each of them to lay all their fears and concerns at Your feet, so that they are not weighed down by the worries of this life. Help their sleep to be peaceful and may they simply trust in You for all things.

Father, we can only commit our federal government to You, knowing that You are the Answer to all things. Raise up for us righteous leadership, Lord. Help those in our legislative branch who are attempting to do what is best for our country. Reveal Your truth in all situations and help our nation to return to You.

Bless Your people Israel, Lord, and may the Gospel be shared far and wide. So much to do before the return of Jesus Christ, Father. May we all work to hasten the day. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

PRAYERS ASCENDING ON HIGH FOR OUR AMERICAN HEROES AND FOR OUR BELOVED NATION!



GEN. GEORGE WASHINGTON
THE PRAYER AT VALLEY FORGE

"Let Tyrants Shake Their Iron Rod"
William Billings
Mixed District Choir, Fairfax, Virginia

IN THE COLDEST and darkest days of the American Revolution, General George Washington raised his prayers for the survival of his beleaguered Army and of the new Nation. The Lord answered those prayers, upheld his Army through a punishing nadir to everlasting Glory, and bestowed His manifold benefits upon the new Nation.


Lafayette

Steuben

Pulaski

FROM THE BRAVE, albeit weary, ill-equipped, and untrained volunteers who straggled into Valley Forge on 19 December 1777 arose, with the help of some gallant friends from across the waves, the cohesive fighting force that became the United States Army, global defender of Freedom and scourge of Tyrants.



AS GENERAL WASHINGTON lifted his prayers on high in that bleak Winter, let our prayers now rise like a fountain for our Heroes in the American Armed Forces who seek to secure the benefits of Freedom on behalf of a people hungry for them. Father, look on our prayers for them with favor, guide their steps in righteousness and envelop them in the shelter of Your Healing Wings. Bless and uphold them in the performance of their Mission. Through Jesus Christ, Your Son, with the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever, Amen.

HEAVENLY FATHER, Lord of the Nations, unto Your Divine Mercy we commend the souls of these valiant men and women who have fallen in the service of our Beloved Nation and in defense of the Freedoms we hold dear. We pray that You gather them in Your loving embrace, that You cause Your Countenance to shine upon them, and that You vouchsafe their souls to dwell eternally in Your Divine Presence. Through Jesus Christ Your Son, with the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever, Amen.

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)
