Pray for our American Heroes

For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them. (Psalm 44: 3)

KEYWORDS: military; moveamericaforward; pray
Oh, Mighty Champion of our Salvation, we come to You in unity praising You for all You have given us as a Nation. You have been so very good to us and we are a grateful people. As we gather to celebrate the birth of this Country and our Independence, Your people acknowledge that it was by Your hand alone that our victory was won. We continue to look to You for keeping and spreading Independence and freedom from oppression. “Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us. For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me. But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.” (vss. 5-7)

Today we pray for those You are using to tread our enemies under our feet. They are Your instruments, so keep them protected and victorious, and help them to keep their eyes on You. Order each one’s steps as they each function in excellence—a well-oiled military machine guided by Your hand. Strengthen each one by Your Spirit in his inner man as day by day You draw each closer to You as Your Spirit and Your Word flow in their midst.


We also pray for Move America Forward in their “commitment to supporting America's efforts to defeat terrorism and supporting the brave men and women of the Armed Forces”. Teach them how to increase in fruitfulness, grant them favor and keep the doors open for the good work they do. We pray that all their financial needs would be met and that their physical bodies would remain strong for the work to which You’ve called them. Give them Your wisdom and understanding, Sir. We pray for a mighty move of Your Spirit among each member of their staff. If any have not yet met Jesus as Lord, enlighten the eyes of their understanding and send them Your Word to bring them saving faith.

We honor You and celebrate, along with John Adams, July 4 as “the ‘Day of Deliverance’ by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.”

We pray and agree together in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

“Our heart shall rejoice in Him.”
- Psalm 33:21

Blessed is the fact that Christians can rejoice even in the deepest
distress; although trouble may surround them, they still sing; and, like
many birds, they sing best in their cages. The waves may roll over them,
but their souls soon rise to the surface and see the light of God’s
countenance; they have a buoyancy about them which keeps their head always
above the water, and helps them to sing amid the tempest, “God is with me
still.” To whom shall the glory be given? Oh! to Jesus-it is all by Jesus.
Trouble does not necessarily bring consolation with it to the believer,
but the presence of the Son of God in the fiery furnace with him fills his
heart with joy. He is sick and suffering, but Jesus visits him and makes
his bed for him. He is dying, and the cold chilly waters of Jordan are
gathering about him up to the neck, but Jesus puts His arms around him,
and cries, “Fear not, beloved; to die is to be blessed; the waters of
death have their fountain-head in heaven; they are not bitter, they are
sweet as nectar, for they flow from the throne of God.” As the departing
saint wades through the stream, and the billows gather around him, and
heart and flesh fail him, the same voice sounds in his ears, “Fear not; I
am with thee; be not dismayed; I am thy God.” As he nears the borders of
the infinite unknown, and is almost affrighted to enter the realm of
shades, Jesus says, “Fear not, it is your Father’s good pleasure to give
you the kingdom.
“ Thus strengthened and consoled, the believer is not afraid to die; nay,
he is even willing to depart, for since he has seen Jesus as the morning
star, he longs to gaze upon Him as the sun in his strength.
Truly, the presence of Jesus is all the heaven we desire.
He is at once

“The glory of our brightest days;
The comfort of our nights.”

Thank you all for your resolve, your Spirit, and your love.

These poems are not of me. They are truly of God. I am only one of many messengers, as are you dear sisters and brothers.

This one arrived this morning, after a mid-night note.

YES, there was Jesus
He took the fall
He died for sinners
He gave His all

But, He is risen
Some don’t believe
If you don’t know Him
Just sit down and grive

Acts Chapter 8 tells the story
Of one convicted man
To eliminate Christians
Was in his grand plan

Paul was a scholar
Who knew his Word
Jesus was not a part of
Any Kingdom that he’d heard

As he sought out Christians
Toward Damascus he would go
On his way he met the Spirit
And then he would know

That Jesus was not just a man
Who died on a cross
Because He had arisen
To replace God’s Laws

Paul was a changed man
From that day ‘til he died
His brethren did’nt trust him
New Christians thought he lied

So he walked throughout his known land
Brought Gentiles to the fold
Jesus lived in his heart daily
The Spirit made him bold

He wrote many letters
To churches he had born
To help them grow in godliness
To mend those that were torn

So if you try your Bible
Many letters you will see
By a man who truly loved God
For the sake of you and me

If you don’t believe in Jesus
Then try to understand
How one man’s life changed forever
As he firmly grasped God’s hand

God made him a story
A God fearing Jew
Who became a Christian
Like me and, hopefully, you

No matter your story
Or what you have done
Jesus will forgive you
As He shelters everyone

You will still have burdens
As Paul did in his time
But, with God’s Spirit in you
Your life can be sublime

Just take His hand He’ll take your heat
He’ll make you stand Your sin depart

Just keep your eyes Following God
He’ll show the Way That should be trod

Trust in His love His saving grace
His light will shine Upon your face

Give thanks each day For the love He gives
He’ll show the Way That you should live.

Thank you all, for your gifts, your love, your patience.

God bless our troops, our saints walking daily in His Word, and GOD BLESS AMERICA. Amen.

Dear God, who suffered
torment, agony and death upon the Cross
to free our souls from the chains of iniquity;
protect and defend our troops.
Guide them in the performance of
their Duties.
Strengthen them to endure hardship,
danger, and deprivation in
Your service.
Let their efforts free the people
of Iraq from the chains of terror
and slavery, foster a lasting peace
in the region, and bring all to a
greater share in Your mercy.
