Pray for our American Heroes and Nation
9/5/12 | Hiskid

Posted on 09/05/2012 7:39:25 AM PDT by Hiskid



TOPICS: Prayer
KEYWORDS: military; pray; prayer
Great Savior and King Jesus, we bless You today and come to the Father in Your name. We offer You our love and devotion and confess our complete dependence on You and Our Father’s Kingdom. We have learned by Your grace that “the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]— do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself]” and that they fail.

And so we come to You, feeling over burdened and heavy laden as we see with our physical senses the negative things that are happening in our world and to people we love. You are our refuge and strength and our ever present help! We are here to cast our cares upon You because You care for us, our American military and our Nation! We are here to pray in agreement with Your Word and with the power of Your Holy Spirit to change what we see with our natural senses to be in conformity to Your will! How awesome is Your power and Your love!

Our love for the men and women who have stepped forward to defend this Nation doesn’t compare to Your love for them. We trust Your love, but come to You because You’ve asked us to present our prayers and petitions to You. Pour out of Your Spirit on these men and women. Enlighten the eyes of their understanding to recognize Your love and willingness to protect, defend and usher them safely into eternity with You. Strengthen them all and give them the wisdom and skill that they need to be a success in their assignment. We ask You to surround them with whatever support that they need—leadership, supplies, encouragement or support. Thank You for all You are surely doing.

It appears to us believers that You are drawing a clearer line between right and wrong in our Nation’s politics and yet so many appear to be blinded. Let Your Word have free course and let the Spirit of Truth shine brighter and brighter so that more can see the correct path. We pray for a cleansing among those in leadership. We crave leaders who will know and be strong to actively pursue and acquire righteousness for us. Thank You for giving us those leaders. We believe we receive.

Amen.

The Hidden Door

September 5, 2012

It wasn’t the first time it happened in sports, and it certainly won’t be the last. But perhaps mentioning it again can help keep us from making a similar shameful error.

A college coach—one noted for his Christian character—resigned in disgrace after it was discovered that he had violated rules clearly spelled out by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. One magazine article concluded: “His integrity was one of the great myths of college football.”

This was certainly an embarrassing time for the coach, but here’s the most sobering part: It can happen to any of us. The temptation to go behind the hidden door of secrecy in our lives and do things that dishonor the Lord haunts us all. Indeed, we are all capable of turning our own integrity into a myth—of turning our testimony for Jesus into a sham. No matter what the temptation, we are all vulnerable.

So, how do we avoid giving in? We acknowledge the universality of temptation (1 Cor. 10:13). We recognize the dangerous results of giving in to sin (James 1:13-15). We keep accountable to fellow believers (Eccl. 4:9-12). And we plead with God for help not to fall (Matt. 26:41). Only God’s grace and power can keep us from falling and pick us up when we do.

The devil is clever, deceiving us all,
He cunningly causes the strongest to fall;
But we his sly methods are sure to discern
By making God’s warnings our daily concern. —D. De Haan
Each sin has its door of entrance; let’s keep that door closed.

Read: James 1:12-21

Blessed is the man who endures temptation. —James 1:12
Bible in a Year:
Ezekiel 4-7
