For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds (2 Cor. 10:4)
As we meditate on Your commandment to walk in Your love towards others, todays scripture holds particular significance. We look at the decisions some of those in authority are making. We look at the enemies of our military men and women, and we are tempted to be angry at their behavior and what they profess. Greater are You, our God! Your light, Your truth, Your love, Your power is superior to darkness, lies, and hatred. We proclaim Your Power! In that understanding, we have confidence and faith in Your Word and love.
We pray for our enemies, knowing that they are behaving in a manner that proves they are motivated by Your enemies. You love them. We pray Your Word in Psalm 106: 7-9
Our fathers in Egypt understood not nor appreciated Your miracles; they did not [earnestly] remember the multitude of Your mercies nor imprint Your loving-kindness [on their hearts], but they were rebellious and provoked the Lord at the sea, even at the Red Sea. Nevertheless He saved them for His names sake [to prove the righteousness of the divine character], that He might make His mighty power known.
Despite our enemies rebellion and provocation of You, save them for Your names sake and prove the righteousness of Your divine character and make Your mighty power known.
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. We bless them and pray for Your rain upon them.
While You are doing that, Father, we pray for Your protection for our military men and women and for those in authority who are laboring in righteousness. Cause them all to be successful.
Thank You for answering our prayers in Your love and great mercy and in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Forgive my late posting! Please come and pray today for our Nation and our military men and women.
Praying for our Heroes and our beloved Nation.
Blessings to all, etabeta
Thank you for your beautiful, thoughtful prayer, dearest Hiskid.
We thank Him for His abundant blessings and ask Him to bless and protect our brave heroes.
Praying With You For Our American Heroes and For Our Nation.
We agree with our sister’s fervent prayer. We know, Lord, that on days such as today, it is especially difficult to pray for our enemies. But You give us more grace. You enable us to do that which we could not do without You. Thank You, Father, that we can lay at Your feet the situation in our beloved America and those who are forcing their own agenda upon the people of this nation. Grant us the courage to keep praying for those who spitefully use us, and help us to continue to bring everything to the foot of the Cross. You are able, Lord, to bring good out of what is intended for evil. We trust in You alone. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Amen to your Most Beautiful, Heaven-Enabled Prayer, Dearest Sister Hiskid.
Standing with you in 100% Agreement.
God Bless your Wonderful Prayer Ministry Always.
'God's Grace be with you All.' (Heb.13:25)
Thank you, Heavenly Father, for hearing and answering our prayers. May no harm come to Your servants unless it is in Your Providence to work a greater good.
In Jesus Name,
I join in prayer for our heroes and nation!
2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. 5 We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ
Dear LORD, I was thinking hard over this very thing yesterday. With all the strife going on in America right now over the constitution, laws, executive orders and alike what if the enemy is within. What if our soldiers are commanded to do that which they deem unrighteous. OH LORD, may their hearts, souls, minds and strength remain in YOU alone. OH LORD, as we see the day drawing near, I pray for GODLINESS among our troops solidarity and prayer among our troops commitment and honor among our troops all in the NAME OF THE LORD. I pray this so deeply for my Jake and our friend Alek. May there never be a time when this type of battle would take place among our own country .AMEN
WOW! Amen, Jeanbl. Thank you so much for your prayer. I hadn’t thought about the potential challenge our military might face as their commands might conflict their righteous hearts. Amen and Amen.
Amen, dear Faith.
Amen to your prayer. We must give this to God and trust in Him. Help us, Precious Lord.
Hi...just read your message and was told my account is to new to respond...so I’ll try here. I think I googled Praying for Jerusalem and Free Republic showed up. I looked into it and am so happy to be part of a praying group of people for the Peace of Jerusalem and or American Heroes...especially because my son is in the National Guard, I am a prayer warrior for a boy from our church Alek, and I volunteered in Israel for with Sar El and have a heart for the IDF...these are my loves and my passions. Glad to be here :)
