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.
Happy Blessed Easter to you and your family. We continue to pray for your son’s family and the birth of the grandbaby. Please keep us posted as there is news.
God bless you and your family.
Prayers for our troops & their families
Lord God, we are thankful....so thankful for how You answered our prayers for the weekend, especially in Berkeley. Lord God how amazing You are, how wonderful Your ways!! We choose to stop for a moment and simply give thanks for all You did. You brought soooo many good people to stand up for our military. And with their action came good report that everyone acted in a way that honors You. No one stooped to the ugly tactics of the enemy - operating in hatred, anger or bitterness. And there was a spirit of unity among those who came. Boldness in standing up for our military and yet a joy in the work. Thank you God for every single person who came and every single person who provided prayer cover or helped in any other way. Lord God, please bless each one of them and their families.
You promise that when we follow where You lead, You will be our Protector and Provider, meeting all our needs sufficiently. Meet the needs of those who serve You in this country, Lord God. Meet the needs of those standing up for our troops here and for our troops and their families who are fighting the War On Terror in every capacity.
We thank You for Your Sovereign hand in our lives. We thank You that through You there will be victory.
Continue raising up those who will do the work. Bring more to each rally.
Thank you for the media coverage. Continue to break through in a way people will know it was by Your power to cause more TRUTH to be reported.
We wait in joyful hope for what You will do next and bow in thanksgiving for what You have done - both seen and unseen.
Hear our prayers. Protect all those who are serving in dangerous places and uncover the enemy. The battle is Yours, Lord. Thank you for being our God, our Mighty Warrior King - Lord of the armies. In Jesus’ name, Amen
Prayers for our troops, allies, vets, families and friends.

Lord God, Heavenly Perfect King, You are Lamb of God who was slain for our sins. You are the Victor who sits on the throne with everything, including death under Your feet. Lord God, we continue to try to walk out the work You give us, but You know our efforts our futile if Your power is not in them. Lord God this goes especially for our troops serving overseas. Lord God many of the enemy represent a supernatural evil. We cannot come against this and hope to win in our own strength. And so we call out to You, to draw more and more troops to faith in You, that they might call to You and enlist Your support, Your supernatural invading their natural to have lasting effect on the enemy’s turf in this way.
Lord God, we ask the same for those who support our troops. Father, we are not unmindful of how You have answered our prayers and brought people to the recent rallies. Indeed, we thank you for all you have done!! But the task is not complete. God, Father God, we ask You to put Your sovereing protection and provision around all those who love You in accordance with Your promises and where the people ahve been faithful to You and Your principles, do the work and cause progress to be made. We cannot do this but You can!!! We ask Your special blessing on events beginning Monday and through the week regarding Gen. Petraeus’ hearing before Congress. Lord God, cause them to vote in favor of continued funding. Silence the mouth of the accuser and slanderer in the House testimony sessions. Give Petraues words from You that carry Your power on them and cause the enemy’s voice to be STILLED! Lord God, bring just who You intend to D.C. for the calling on congressmen on Monday and Vets on the Hill as the week ensues give all travelling mercies that they might find safe passage there and back. Cause there to be unexpected results in a way which reveals Your hand in this!! Put watchmen on the walls who will understand how important it is to stand faithful in prayer even as others are walking out the work in the natural.
Lord God thank you for bringing so many of the 3rd LAR home safely next week to TwentyNine Palms. Cause them to know how much we appreciate them!
Lord God comfort those whose sons, daughters, husbands, wives, etc have made the ultimate sacrifice recently as well as the Maupin family whose son’s remains were just found this week after he was kidnapped four years ago.
Lord God, You must fulfill Your promises, so over time, use all these things which cause us to grieve so much for good!!! We must trust in You and believe You will do this!
Father God, we also pray for safety for our warriors still in harm’s way and that Osama Bin Laden would be CAUGHT!
Father, encourage those who are injured that their lives still have divine purpose and give them strength and a knowledge of you to perservere.
Thank you for all those who stand up for our troops, especially those at Walter Reed every Friday night FReeping who celebrating a special birthday of consecutive weeks of service at the end of March. Lord God bless these people richly.
WE stand in awe of You, Lord. Do the work. We will tell the story and You will be glorified. In Jesus’ mighty Name, Amen
prayers up! AMEN!
Amen and Amen!
Ping to Eaglesnest1’s prayer on post #237. Very powerful!
Thanks for the Ping, Flyer
Prayers for our troops & their families.
Our prayers are going up !!!
Heavenly Father, awesome Lord, we give You all praise. Nothing is beyond You. Nothing is before You. Nothing is above You. You createde the heavens and the earth. No one else. Only You hold the power of life and death, only You are love and have the power to save.
Oh, how we adore You! How can we do anything else! In awe of You, we come gleefully before You as Your beloved children and bow reverently before You. Only One who is holy, we are not worthy, but by the sacrifice of the blood of Your Son, Jesus Christ we gain entrance into Your holy sanctuary.
Father God, You know. You understand. Our battles here on earth are not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities and powers in the heavenly realms, against this present darkness. This is the root of all wars and nothing else. As long as we are on earth, not in heaven with You, there will be war and we will have to fight for freedom. This is not a fight where we can be victorious unless You are with us.
Oh Lord God, You know the war we are fighting right now to stop terror from spreading and You know the battle we fight here at home to enable those who fight for us over there to continue their work! Lord God, we cannot make progress without Your power, without Your strategy, without Your provision and protection. And so we come before You know and ask for Your Holy Spirit to descend with all of Your attributes with increase in our circumstances, to release strategy and to do the work. Lord God, be with our troops overseas. Be their covering. Be their Guide. Let Your favor surround them like a shield according to Your promises. Where there are those who do not yet know You, cause them to know You with increase, little by little, day by day. Give them pockets of time in their day where they can be drawn to Your Word. Show them passages which speak directly to their hearts. Give the chaplains the words and opportunity to reveal Your Truth.
Lord God, give the officers Your strategy to win this war. Give them Your strategy for progress and protection for the troops. Give them Your strategy to continue equipping the Iraqis to fight for their own country and give those in Afghanistan Your next steps. Write Your strategy and Your truth on their hearts!
Lord God, guide and direct the steps of each troop, that they may walk in increased safety. Show them that You are there so that they may trust more in You and thus seek to hear and obey.
Be with every member of every military family. Be their comfort. Show them how You would have them live in the absence of their deployed family member. In Jesus’ name, remove all fear. TEach them how to walk in less worry - though this will only be possible by Your power, certainly not our own.
Be a comfort to the families of those troops You have called home to be with You already in eternity. Lord God this hurts!!!! They are so missed here!!!! Only You can provide comfort and only You can give these family members their new purpose to keep going - a purpose which can only be found in Your purposes. Teach them, dear Father, that they may day by day make it through and eventually move on -walking forward in Your work for them, while never forgetting.
Bless our wounded. Be their ROCK. Help them to see Your hand in their recovery. Let them see that there is still great purpose for their lives. Surround them with those who support them and can speak life to them.
Lord God provide Your strategy, covering, protection and provision for those who are standing up at home for our troops overseas. Thank you for each and every one of them. Thank you for the Gold Star families fighting for the troops to fight to victory and for the HONORED memory of their loved ones. Thank you for blessing the visits last week to D.C. by Vets For Freedom, Gathering of Eagles, Free Republic, Band of Mothers and so many, many others. Thank you for what You did both seen and unseen in these visits and stands for freedom.
Thank you for continuing to bless and provide for all the FReeps - Walter Reed, Olney, and Westminster just to name a few. Lord God raise up those to do the same on many street corners across America. Let those who are called hear the cry to arms by Free Republic members and now Eagles Up.
Lord God, all this is not just for our troops and our freedom. You use ALL things so people would come to know YOU! Do the work. Work through our obedient circumstances to reveal the wonder of who You are by doing things differently, by causing impact and victory for these groups who support our troops, when everything logical says it should not worl. Logic is not Your Wisdom. Your Wisdom and Ways are SUPREME!
We wait in joyful hope and expectation of what You will do next. We commit to go joyfully through our days, trusting in Your perfect provision and protection and strategy. We commit to tell the story of how You have worked when You are done so ALL will know You alone are LORD. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen
What an amazing prayer! It only comes from an intimate relationship with our Lord and you have proven that you know Him well. Thank you for such beautiful and anointed words. Maryxxx
