Pray for Our American Heroes
September 10, 2012 | faith

Posted on 09/10/2012 9:06:52 AM PDT by Faith

I exhort therefore, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. (I Tim. 2:1-2)

KEYWORDS: america; pray; troops
Heavenly Father,

Your desire is that we as believers co-labor with you to bring Your Kingdom to this earth. And Your command is that we pray for all of our leaders---those placed in positions of power and authority, so that we may all reap the blessings of a quiet and peaceful life. Father, we know that when the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people mourn. Grant that the hearts of our leaders would turn to You for wisdom and understanding. We ask You to help us make wise choices as we approach the time when we elect new men and women as our leaders in this nation. We are well aware of the critical nature of the choices before us. Help us as Christians to be instrumental in returning this nation to You, Father, that the heart and soul of America would reflect Your very nature and desires for us.

Holy God, we love this precious country that You have given us, and we long for our nation to be restored in every way. You have promised to heal our land when Your people humble themselves and pray and seek Your face and turn from their wicked ways. O Lord, we confess Your healing over this country day by day, week by week, heart by heart. Help us, Lord, that we may receive Your complete restoration and that we may be stiff-necked no longer.

Grant Your blessings and tender care over our brave men and women in the military. Thank You that the angel of the Lord encamps around all those who fear You, and You deliver them. Guard these patriots as a mother hen watches over her chicks and a shepherd watches over his sheep. Thank You that You cover them with Your feathers so that under Your wings they safely trust. We ask You to send wonderful helpers to their families to help ease the pain of waiting for their loved ones’ safe return.

Father of lights, with Whom there is no variableness nor shadow of turning, we rejoice that You are the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Thank You, Father, that You are all that we need --- the Alpha and Omega, the eternal I AM. We serve a Mighty and Awesome God and we give You thanks for Your faithfulness in all things. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

PRAYERS GOING UP FOR OUR AMERICAN HEROES AND FOR OUR BELOVED NATION!



GEN. GEORGE WASHINGTON
THE PRAYER AT VALLEY FORGE

"Let Tyrants Shake Their Iron Rod"
William Billings
Mixed District Choir, Fairfax, Virginia
(Click)


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 lie a fountain for our Heroes in the American Armed Forces 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, with the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever, Amen.




SHADOWS AT ARLINGTON
God Of Our Fathers, Whose Almighty Hand
Morman Tabernacle Choir

Heavenly Father, Lord of the Nations, unto Your Divine Mercy we commend the souls of these brave men and women 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 Jesus Christ Your Son, with the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever, Amen.






Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem 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)
