Prayers, especially in this Holy Week.
Thank you, eaglesnest1!
Lord, we lift up to you all those who have put their lives on the line to defend our freedoms as we remember today the ultimate sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ, who being without sin became a sin offering for us, so that we may be forgiven and inherit eternal life with Him.
In your Holy Name we pray, Amen!
Its a little long again....but as I’ve been praying for our troops and those who support them - especially the rallies in Berkeley today, the FReep in Olney finishing up right now and the PGR planned attendance at a mortuary convention in L.A., this what the Lord led me to pray. As usual, please join in prayer as He leads....May God bless each of you, your families and loved ones richly with an increase of His presence in Your lives this Resurrection Day. And thank you, thank you for your prayers. You already know how important they are. For our Mighty Warrior King and His glory!!!
Heavenly Father, Mighty Warrior King, Lord of the Armies, Prince of Peace and Lamb of God who was crucified and rose again, opening the gates of heaven for all of us. This is earth not heaven. There has always been a price for freedom because evil exists and will always seek to dominate more and more land and hearts. None of us desire war. But if we stand idly by and let evil encroach because of our desire for peace, we will not ensure peace but eventual domination by those who seek personal gain and power over freedom of the people to be who God created them to be. The dignity of every human life must be ensured.
We have been on our knees praying, asking forgiveness for the sins of our country which over the past 40 years has begun to embrace a culture of death more than Your culture of life. We have been on our knees praying for Your mercy that You would come with revival power, with a river of increase of Your Holy Spirit, that by Your hand in response to our prayers, You would restore the land. Lord God, You are answering our prayers and we thank You. The worship and prayers of Your faithful continues to be sweet incense to Your heavenly nostrils and You are drawing near. With You comes all that You are all Your attributes in increase. Lord God wake the sleeping Christians. It is time to rebuild the broken down walls, dwellings and streets of our country as in Nehemiahs time. It is time for each person to find their place on the walls for there is much work to be done and You have pre-ordained each persons place so that every spot on the wall is manned. Lord God it is time for people to stand up, to get off couches of malcontent and complaint and to stand for Your principles, being seen and heard and making a difference until our voices are heard and our country re-built on the foundation of You.
Lord God, we thank You for each and every person already standing up and manning their place on the wall. This morning, on this prayer thread, we thank you especially for those who stand up for our troops. We stand in agreement providing prayer and worship cover for all they do, bowing before You in the full awareness of who You are and beseeching You to be with them in all they do. Let the cloud of Your glory accompany each and every troop-supporting action today. Call forth exactly those who You intended to attend these events. Give them Your Spirit and Your heart so that HOW they stand for our troops looks different than the anti-war protestors. Lord God, these say they are opposed to war in the world, however, when we look at the fruit of their root motives we do not see a people who are seeking peace. Many operate in anger, slander, accusation, hatred, bitterness and deceit. These are not fruit of Your Spirit but fruit of the opposite spirit and therefore it is not of You. Lord God, if we are to have Your covering and make impact by our standing up not only in the physical realm, but in the supernatural, eternal realm as well, if we are to have Your power in our actions (the only way progress will be made), then we must operate in a way that exhibits Your character the fruit of Your Spirit. We must stand firm in love, in truth, in the quiet solid confidence of knowing You are Righteousness and Justice, that You are the way and fighting for freedom and dignity of the individual is part of it. So, be with those who stand for those who fight for us today. Help them to operate in the fruit of Your Spirit- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control by Your power even as they move by Your power to retake the land.
See our worship, hear our prayers. Be with troop supporters in their actions in Berkeley today, in Olney, in Southern California, with Vets for Freedom as they continue their National Heroes Tour across this great land You know all the places You have called them to stand up. We pray herewith for each and every one. We pray also that they would see Your hand in how the events go today and we promise to give You the glory to tell the story of Your provision and protection which will always exceed expectations in ways we would have never imagined.
See our obedience to Your Way and honor our ongoing worship and prayers by a mighty move of Your power, Your way in this movement in our country. We wont tell You what this should look like because Your ways are so superior to ours. But we promise to be before Your throne day and night until the work is done.
And Lord God, special Resurrection Day blessing on each and every member of our Armed Forces and their families. By our worship and their own, increase the hedge of protection around them and the covering of Your sovereign protection. And today we ask also that You would protect, grow and deepen their marriages, help their children through the long times of separation and draw each and every one of them closer to You. Thank you for their faithfulness to Your call as they stand up for our country and the world.
The battle is Yours. God bless America. God bless our troops. God bless those who support them. In Jesus mighty, precious Name, Amen.
Thank you for honoring us with the privilege of praying for this:
Father God, hear our prayer....You alone know the proper timing for this birth, but You also promise to hear our prayers. Lord God, allow this father to be there for his baby’s birth. Do a mighty work! Create a God story out of the birth of this baby which will be told for generations...how in just your timing, in Your perfect way You brought this child into the world. Lord God we desire TODAY, we ache for today, but we promise to REST in You. We will, however, be like Elijah before the altar. Rest assured that in complete trust we will be here worshipping and in prayer until the prayer is answered. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
svcw PLEASE keep us posted!
Lovely prayer. I stand in agreement in the name of Jesus. God bless you for placing this before the Lord, Eaglesnest.
Prayers for your grandbaby, your DIL and your son. I pray for a safe, natural and joyful entrance to earth before daddy has to leave to serve his country!
Prayers for the soldiers & their families . May the Lord watch over them & keep them safe.
We will not be able to enjoy our God given freedoms without fighting for them. That is unfortunate but we are only human.
Svcw, I'll Lift your Grandbaby, Son, and Daughter-in-Law to our Lord in my Bedtime Prayers.
I stand in agreement in the Holy Name of Jesus, amen.
May your Easter be blessed with the Presence of our Lord and the Joy of His Fellowship.
