Posted on 09/26/2012 6:35:49 AM PDT by Hiskid
As we think today about our beloved American troops, we remember Your promise and thank You on their behalf for being the God that is with them, is their deliverer, watches over them and listens to them (and us). Surely if God be for them, who can be against them? Hallelujah and bless You, God Almighty to fulfill Your Word.
We pray for our Nation today. Because Your Word is Supreme, we boldly ask You for leaders who are servants. From Philippians 2, we ask that they would fulfill these directives:
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men 3Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
For Your body, we continue to pray from Phil. 2: Help us to do all things without complaining and disputing, that we may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom we shine as lights in the world,
Let fall in showers, you heavens, from above, and let the skies rain down righteousness [the pure, spiritual, heaven-born possibilities that have their foundation in the holy being of God]; let the earth open, and let them [skies and earth] sprout forth salvation, and let righteousness germinate and spring up [as plants do] together; I the Lord have created it. (Is. 45:8)
Let our coming elections be a glory unto You as things are done decently and in order with a just balance and clear wisdom for our people.
Thank You, Lord of the Breakthrough. We give You honor in Jesus name. Amen.
My wife, Martie, is a great shopper. When she shops for groceries, she reads all the nutrition labels and considers the best deal by looking at the price per unit. But her best trick is looking for the use by date. She doesnt just grab the first gallon of milk she sees, but rather she goes for the gallon with the latest use by date so she can bring home the freshest milk from the store.
In a sense, our lives are marked by use by datesexcept that none of us knows the exact date when our heart will expire or well take our last breath on this planet. Given that reality, shouldnt we try a little harder to capture the moments weve been given? Capturing the moment means that well do things like love more deeply, forgive more quickly, listen more carefully, and speak more affirmingly.
Paul gives this good advice: See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil (Eph. 5:15-16). He also instructs us to walk as children of light . . . finding out what is acceptable to the Lord (vv.8-10).
Since none of us knows our use by date, we should capture the opportunities to brighten our world with the love of Christ today!
Read: Ephesians 5:8-21
Praying throughout the day, especially with Iran announcing a missile test launch towards our ships.
Also, Please pray for 12 year old Abigale Lefevers who was abducted in NC on Monday by a sexual predator who lived with her father. Her mom died a while ago. They think she’s in SC.
Amen to every word of your heartfelt and encouraging prayer, Hiskid!
Grrr. This really makes you yearn for “the end of the age”, but we will exercise our rights as children of the Most High!
Father, we are here as Your anointed servants, praying Your will for Abigale Lefevers. Satan, we take authority over you and command you to release this child! Set her free in the name of Jesus! Angels, we give you charge concerning her. Bring her back safely and into a safe environment.
Father we ask You for physical and emotional healing for little Abigale and for a loving home in which she can grow to maturity. Let this be a home where Jesus is Lord and she can be brought up in the nurture and admonition of You.
Thank You for Your grace, Your goodness and Your wonderful love for Abigale. You are her protector, Shepherd and healer and for this we thank You in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Praying with you for our Heroes and our beloved Nation.
May God bless and keep you and everyone you love and everyone here.
I join you all in faithful prayer for our heroes and our Republic, and also for Israel.
Lord, hear our prayers.
I pray that Gods peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding would garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Amen. (Phil.4:6-8)
Amen..Joining with you in prayer for all our American Heroes and our Nation.
Heartfelt Amens to your Beautiful, Power-Filled Prayer, Dear Servant of Jesus Christ.
Your Ministry is a Heaven-Sent Blessing!
'How I Thank God for you.' (2Tim. 1:3)
