O that thou hadst hearkened
to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river,
and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea: (Isaiah 48:18)
KEYWORDS: heroes; nation; pray
Do not withhold Your mercy from Your children in this Nation, O Lord. May Your love and truth always protect our American Heroes. Help us to learn how much Your truth protects us, Father. Without it, we are vulnerable to the enemy and to our own flesh nature. O God, send forth Your light and Your truth into our lives. Let them guide us; let them bring Your children in this Nation to Your holy mountain, to the place where You dwell. Surely You desire truth in our inner parts. You teach us wisdom in the inmost place. Please expose to us the deeply embedded lies we've believed, Lord and replace them with permanently engraved truth.
We call on You, O God, for You will answer us. Give ear to Your children in this Nation and hear the prayers of all of our American Heroes. Show the wonder of Your great love, You who save by Your right hand those who take refuge in You from their foes. Keep us as the apple of Your eye. Hide us the in the shadow of Your wings show us Your ways, O Lord. Teach us Your paths. Guide us in Your truth and teach us, for You are God our Savior, and our hope is in You all day long. Remember Your great mercy and love, for they are from old. Remember not the sins of our youth and our rebellious ways. Instead, remember us according to Your love, for You are good, O Lord. In Jesus name, we pray Amen

Great Is Your Reward
February 7, 2012
Many businesses have points programs that offer rewards to loyal customers. You can stack up these rewards by using their companies services, like eating at local restaurants, staying at certain hotels, or flying on particular airlines. Choosing to spend your money this way makes a lot of sense.
God has a rewards program as well. Jesus often spoke of His desire to reward us for loyally serving Him. When we are persecuted for His sake, for example, He says to rejoice . . . for great is your reward in heaven (Matt. 5:12). In contrast to the Pharisees pious habit of giving, praying, and fasting in public, Jesus instructed us to do these things privately, because your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly (6:4,6,18). When it comes to living for Jesus, faithfulness never ultimately puts your life in a deficit position, regardless of what it costs.
But we dont serve Jesus for the rewards. When He died for us on the cross, He did far more for us than we deserve. Loyalty to Him is an act of worship that expresses our loving gratitude for His love toward us. In return, He delights to encourage us with the assurance that ultimately His rewards will outweigh whatever we have given up for Him.
Live for Jesusregardless of the cost.
Our service for the Lord will be
Rewarded one day openly,
By God who sees in secrecy
All sacrifice for Him. Sper
What is done for Christ in this life
will be rewarded in the life to come.
Read: Matthew 6:1-6,16-18
Your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly. Matthew 6:4

PRAYERS GOING UP FOR OUR AMERICAN HEROES AND FOR OUR BELOVED NATION!
GEORGE WASHINGTON THE PRAYER AT VALLEY FORGE
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.
In like manner, let our prayers now rise for our heroes in the American military 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 keep them in the shelter of Your Healing Wings. Bless and uphold them in the performance of their Mission. Through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Amen.
SHADOWS AT ARLINGTON
Heavenly Father, Lord of the Nations, unto Your Divine Mercy we commend the souls of these 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 Your Son, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever, Amen.

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)
