Pray For Our American Heroes and Our Nation

Offer the sacrifices of the righteous
and trust in the LORD.

Psalm 4:5 (NIV)

----


TOPICS: Prayer
KEYWORDS: military; pray; prayer; troops

The last line of the Declaration, under which our founders signed their name:

And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Please check out the video clip below -
What happened to the signers
of the Declaration of Independence
as presented by the late Paul Harvey

----

1 LORD, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
Who may live on your holy mountain?

2 The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart;
3 whose tongue utters no slander,
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others;
4 who despises a vile person
but honors those who fear the LORD;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
and does not change their mind;
5 who lends money to the poor without interest;
who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

Whoever does these things
will never be shaken.

Psalm 15 (NIV)

----

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

Heavenly Father –

As we have passed another anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, may we remember those who paid a high price to take a stand for liberty – with their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. And these men and their families had everything in this life to lose and nothing to gain – nothing but the precious gift of freedom.

Yet, Jesus said – So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. May we repent and have the chains of our sins broken so we are free to do good, but not be slaves to evil. May we be filled with Your Spirit to live the victorious life.

With those who serve to protect our nation, may we also serve to wield the full arsenal of spiritual weapons to bring down the strongholds that are set against You.

We ask for your mercy on our land and a revival in our country, starting in our own hearts, our families, our churches, our communities, our nation.

In Jesus’ precious Name,
Amen

Keep praying for America

Please join us in praying for America and our American heroes

Fight the good fight of the faith.
Take hold of the eternal life
to which you were called
when you made your good confession
in the presence of many witnesses.

1 Timothy 6:12 (NIV)

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.

"Riamh nár dhruid ó sbairn lann!

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)

Today I will thank God for our spiritual ancestors who brought God’s Word to our land. . . Dear LORD, I must pray a prayer of repentance over this America. In Thanksgiving and Praise ALWAYS FIRST, I thank YOU for our beginnings…in adherence to YOUR WORD, in the shadow of THY TRUTH, the Constitution was written, the FREEDOM to WORSHIP was established…IN GOD WE TRUST was our motto and our FAITH HOPE AND LOVE. And now this verse rings over us instead of the LIBERTY BELL’S Glory…

These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised… Hebrews 11:39

Did they work in vain, have our soldiers died in vain, do those who fight for our freedom fight in vain…for the freedoms that our leaders are putting forth are for so many abominations…OH GOD, help this country to be restored to the FAITH OF OUR FATHERS…Bless those in our Military who hold these truths DEAR, and HOLD YOUR TRUTH dear, and lay down their own lives as living sacrifices for such and for us. Amen.

Blessings, Jeanbl, for your constant prayers in upholding our country, our heroes, our people.

In God we trust - for it is better to trust in God, than put confidence in man.

Amen

Amen to your beautiful prayer.

Continued prayers for our selfless heroes who honor God the Father, as well as each and every one of us by what they’ve done and what they continue to do.

May our own prayers and actions, along with the those of our heroes, allow God’s love to be spread throughout His kingdom endlessly and in abundance.

In God we trust!

In Jesus’ holy name we raise our voices together.
