Pray For Our American Heroes and Our Nation (6/14/2013)

Pray For Our American Heroes and Our Nation

Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves
in every way: in great endurance;
in troubles, hardships and distresses;

in beatings, imprisonments and riots;
in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger;

in purity, understanding, patience and kindness;
in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love;

in truthful speech and in the power of God;
with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left;

through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report;
genuine, yet regarded as impostors;

known, yet regarded as unknown;
dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed;

sorrowful, yet always rejoicing;
poor, yet making many rich;
having nothing, and yet possessing everything.

2 Corinthians 6:4-10 (NIV)

(text from video clip)

The Spirit of man has awakened
The Soul of man has gone forth

Grant us the wisdom and the vision
to comprehend the greatness of man's Spirit
that suffers and endures so hugely for a goal
beyond his own brief span …

We are all of us children of Earth
Grant us that simple knowledge
If our brothers are oppressed,
then we are oppressed …
If they hunger, we hunger …
If their freedom is taken away,
our freedom is not secure ..

Grant us a common faith,
that man shall know bread and peace …
That he shall know justice and righteousness,
Freedom and security, an equal opportunity,
and an equal chance to do his best,
not only in our own lands, but throughout the world.

And in that faith, let us march, march toward the clean world,
our hands can make.
Amen

Remember me with favor, my God.

Nehemiah 13:30 (NIV)

------------------------------

Heavenly Father –

Over seventy years ago, President Franklin Roosevelt expressed hope for a better world even as the world convulsed in the intense battles of World War Two. And on Flag Day, may we remember all who exemplify man’s spirit - that suffers and endures so hugely for a goal beyond his own brief span.

Yet, there is no peace for the wicked, and no hope for peace without the Prince of Peace reigning in our hearts. Give us a spirit of repentance and dependence on You, Father. May Your Spirit fill us and equip us to fight the mortal enemy of our souls, who has spiritual strongholds in high places of our country and the world.

May all of God’s people be united in Your Spirit. For only You, Father, can bring forth justice and righteousness, freedom and security, an equal opportunity - all these things yearned for in FDR’s Flag Day prayer.

Bless all Your servants, home and aboard, who put themselves in harm’s way to serve and protect us and keep us safe. Also, bless the families of those who serve, who also sacrifice. And bless our country – though so undeserving – by Your infinite grace and mercy.

In Jesus’ precious Name,
Amen

Keep praying for America

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.
