Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
Great are You, our Lord, and most worthy of praise. Your greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend Your works to another; they will tell of Your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and we will meditate on Your wonderful works. They will tell of the power of Your awesome works, and we will proclaim Your great deeds. They will celebrate Your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of Your righteousness. You, our God, are the Rock. Your works are perfect, and all Your ways are just. You are a faithful God who does no wrong. You are upright and just. In Jesus name, Amen
come and pray
Praying with you for our Heroes and our beloved Nation.
Amen to your Beautiful Prayer, WhatNot! Thank You for leading us today.
If youre a fan of Shakespeare, you know that his heroes always have a serious character flaw. It makes for a good story and teaches some important lessons. The same is true of our Bible hero Abraham. His flaw? Fear.
Twice Abraham succumbed to his fear that a ruler would kill him and steal his wife (Gen. 12:11-20; 20:2-13). Fearing for his life, he deceived both Pharaoh and King Abimelech by saying, She is my sisterin essence welcoming the king to take Sarah into his harem (20:2). With fear dictating his actions, he put at risk Gods plan that through him and Sarah a great nation would arise (12:1-3).
But before we judge Abraham, we should ask ourselves a few questions. For fear of losing our job, would we compromise our integrity? For fear of appearing old-fashioned, would we set aside our values? For fear of being ridiculed or misunderstood, would we neglect sharing the gospel and put someones eternity at risk? Only one thing will conquer our fears: tenacious faith in Gods presence, protection, power, and promises.
If your fear is putting Gods wonderful plans for you at risk, remember that He will never ask you to do anything He cant bring to completion, even if it requires miraculous intervention on His part.
Read: Genesis 20:1-13
I come in agreement with my brothers and sisters in Christ that You are a great and Holy God who deserves all glory and praise. You loved us, even when we were sinners, and in the future you know we will fail you; yet you promised to always forgive us when we come to you with a repentant heart. Thanks you.
We lift up our troops asking that you be with them through the dangers they face. Give them the wisdom and discernment to know how to react when confronted by the enemy. Give them strength and courage to do what they must and give them Your presence so your peace washes over them. Bring them home soon with the honor they deserve for their sacrifices. Be with their families as they are away and meet every need they have. Bless them all abundantly.
Father, we need you hand to fall upon this nation. May you open up hearts and minds to your truths and remove the scales from eyes who are blinded by lies. Let all people see that you are a God of love, mercy, forgiveness and peace. Help them to see you are the reason we are here. Give us your children your hand and feet, your words and love to lead others to you, a God who sent his own son to die for the world. May those caught up in false religions see that you are the one and only true God.
Protect our nation and keep us a light in a lost world. Give all our leaders the wisdom, knowledge and understanding they need to make right decisions for our country. Give us leaders who does what is right and makes laws that are in line with your will and ways. Stop anyone who attempts to harm this nation in any way. Our nation is blessed because of you, let people know that.
Bring a revival to nation. May all people hear the gospel clearly and understand what it means in their lives and after they die. Help them to see that all will face you one day, either as savior or as judge.
In Your Son Jesus’ name we pray.
AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!
AMEN to both prayers! Thank you for leading us by the Spirit of God.
Amen to your Powerful and Beautiful Prayer, Brother WhatNot.
Standing with you in Agreement, with Praise for your Wonderful Prayer Ministry.
