14 Bless those who persecute you [who are cruel in their attitude toward you]; bless and do not curse them.
17 Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is honest and proper and noble [aiming to be above reproach] in the sight of everyone. 18 If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for [Gods] wrath; for it is written, Vengeance is Mine, I will repay (requite), says the Lord.
20 But if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head.
21 Do not let yourself be overcome by evil, but overcome (master) evil with good.
Father God, we are so grateful for Your Word to guide us! Sometimes we rejoice over it and sometimes our flesh wants to stumble over it. However, we remember that it is always for our good and for that we give you thanks.
Father, we confess that Your body here in our United States is angry over what we see happening in our Nation, but we choose to thank You, as Your Word commands. We will not repay evil for evil, but will do what is honest, proper and noble. We will live at peace with everyone. We will trust You to execute vengeance on our enemies and we will be kind to our enemies. We will master evil with good! Hallelujah! You have given us the weapon of love, which never fails!
We pray for our military men and women today. Let Your Word have free course among them. As jeanbl prayed yesterday, give favor to those who preach Your Word among themin season and out of season. We honor and bless You for each one who preaches Your uncompromised Word. If there are any hirelings among them, we pray for their salvation by the enlightening of the eyes of their understanding by the Holy Spirit.
Thank You for answering our prayers and for this year of Grace and unprecedented favor. We pray in Jesus name. Amen.
God bless your time of prayer for our military and our Nation today.
Amen to Every Powerful, Anointed Word of your Heartfelt Prayer, Dearest Sister His Kid.
Standing with you in 100% Agreement, with Thanksgiving for your Wonderful Prayer Ministry.
'May God's Blessings Surround you.' (Col.4:18)
Thank You for this reminder Hiskid...vengeant hearts spew vengeant words and as our LORD reminds us, Matthew 15:18 But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these things defile a person. Today I feel guilty as charged. My son and daughter came home from school and I went off attacking all those who stand against Christ...in the government, in our schools, in our homes. But, as the HOLY SPIRIT always does for us when we grieve HIM, he reminded me of this one thing: “But for the GRACE of GOD go I”, and with that I echo Job 40:4...I put my hand over my mouth to silence myself. Dear LORD, forgive me for any shadow of self righteousness I may shed over these two young soldiers my Jake, and his Courtney. With all that is attacking our military, they surely don’t need a over zealous mother. Give me wisdom to speak truth in LOVE not only for them but for others. OH LORD, they will need you as well as all our soldiers in so many different circumstances, and solid FAITH in YOUR GOODNESS and YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS and YOUR SALVATION has be their foundation. Help us pray for this, speak this for those we love, and walk this before all we come in contact with. I LOVE YOU GOD, ONLY because YOU HAVE FIRST LOVED ME...AMEN and AMEN.
May I pray for the lost more than I accuse them; I pray that I work in positive ways to change things that are wrong, rather than vent. May I examine my heart before judging others. God please allow people across this country wake up and see the evil that is being unleashed on this world and feel the need to pray. I pray that we all humble ourselves, see our own sins, repent and turn to You, God for forgiveness and hope. Have mercy on this nation and help us to walk in Your will and Your ways. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
I love joining in on the discussions, praying and hoping that God will intercede, but do become frustrated when it appears evil is not being stopped. (Too many times I try telling God how He should do things-Please turn Mikey Weinstein into another Paul/Saul, God.) It's hard to trust and pray when it seems evil is winning. I know evil will be defeated eventually, I just want "thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven" today, now and always. If anyone catches me with angry smoking fingers that are out of control, please remind me of my prayer. Thanks for being here.
