Father, today I receive by faith that You have shed abroad Your love in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. I can love my enemies with Your love. All of us here--born again with Your divine nature into the Kingdom of Your dear Son--can love our enemies. We choose obedience, and thank You for giving us the ability and strength to be obedient.
You are a holy and mighty God, worthy of all our praise and adoration. How awesome it is to be able to come before Your throne with our petitions. Today we pray for the safety and success of our United States military. From the least to the greatest, give them skill, understanding and wisdom to accomplish their tasks in excellence and with Your favor. Continue to increase the size and strength of Your Kingdom among them. Together, we do not cease to give thanks for each, making mention of them in our prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to them the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of their understanding being enlightened; that they may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
We pray for those in authority and those who are working diligently to undermine our pursuit of that which was set forth in the Declaration of Independence: that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. We pray for the salvation of those working against the foundation our forefathers established for us. Let them see You! Let them see the perfection of Your way of doing and being right! Save us from our internal enemies, oh God! Show them that You are the Greater One and that Your Kingdom WILL prevail.
Thank You for answering our prayers, mighty God, in Jesus name. Amen

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.
In Memory of my friend, SSgt. Leslie E. Little, USMC - 1947 - 2012.
May he rest in eternal Peace!
Etiam non princeps sed usque ad genua, Principis Pacis!
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)

May God Guide Our Nation
Almighty and Eternal God, protect our soldiers as they discharge their duties. Surround them with the shield of your strength and keep them safe from all evil and harm. May the power of your love enable them to return home safely to the people who love them and to the gratitude of the American people. We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
