Pray for our American Heroes and Nation
6/12/13 | Hiskid

Posted on 06/12/2013 8:13:44 AM PDT by Hiskid



TOPICS: Prayer
KEYWORDS: military; pray; prayer
Father, we know that “every word of God proves true” and that “You are not a man that You should lie”. “Yes, and, in You, Amen”. You inspired Paul to pray for a greater knowledge of You and Your plans for us so that we can receive these great and precious promises. God, You are awesome!

Today, Sir, we think about all of the promises that are accompanied by Your word, “Surely” as we pray for our beloved American military and our Nation. With You, we confess for our military that surely goodness and mercy shall follow them all the days of their lives: and they will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. We also confess that Surely You shall deliver them from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. Thank You for being their defender.

For our Nation, we believe that Your light, Your power, Your truth is greater than the darkness and lies that have clouded many of our citizens and leaders. Send forth Your Light! Send forth Your Truth! Oh, mighty God, how we need You. Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, That glory may dwell in our land.(Psalm 85:9).

We honor You and Your Word today and thank You for all that You are surely doing to save our people. Our trust is in You. We pray in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

PRAYERS ASCENDING ON HIGH 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. From the brave, untrained volunteers who strode into Valley Forge that Winter arose the cohesive fighting force that became the United States Army, world-wide defender of Freedom and scourge of Tyrants.



AS GENERAL WASHINGTON lifted his prayers on high, let our prayers now rise like 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 envelop 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.

HEAVENLY FATHER, Lord of the Nations, unto Your Divine Mercy we commend the souls of these valiant 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)

Unfinished Business

June 12, 2013

At age 99, Leo Plass received his college diploma from Eastern Oregon University. He had stopped working on his teaching degree during the 1930s when he left college to earn an income in the logging industry. Seventy-nine years later, he completed the three credits necessary to graduate and resolve this important unfinished business in his life.

Many of us can relate to Leo. Our unfinished business may include apologies left unsaid or, even more important, unfinished spiritual decisions. One of the criminals who was crucified with Jesus needed desperately to make such a decision. Just a few breaths away from eternity, he realized who Jesus was and wanted to be with Him in heaven. He recognized his sin and Jesus’ innocence, and said, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom” (Luke 23:42). Jesus replied, “Assuredly, . . . today you will be with Me in Paradise” (v.43).

God does not want anyone to perish (2 Peter 3:9). His offer of salvation is open to anyone, regardless of age, health, or stage in life. His offer is open to you. Don’t delay receiving Jesus as Savior (2 Cor. 6:2). Resolve this important, unfinished business, and you’ll look forward to eternity with Him.

Time after time, He has waited before,
And now He is waiting again
To see if you’re willing to open the door;
Oh, how He wants to come in! —Carmichael
To be saved here means to be safe hereafter.

Read: Luke 23:32-43

Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom. —Luke 23:42
Bible in a Year:
Ezra 3-5; John 20

Thank you, again, for your beautiful graphics and faithful prayers.

Isaiah 63:7-9
I will recount the loving-kindnesses of the Lord and the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, according to all that the Lord has bestowed on us, and the great goodness to the house of Israel, which He has granted them according to His mercy and according to the multitude of His loving-kindnesses. For He said, Surely they are My people, sons who will not lie [who will not deal falsely with Me]; and so He was to them a Savior [in all their distresses]. In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the [a]Angel of His presence saved them; in His love and in His pity He redeemed them; and He lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.
