We thank You from the spiritual heritage from our founders and their faith in You, from which comes the fountainhead of liberty. Though pop culture is filled with propaganda and distractions, may we never forget who we are. While we will eventually be removed from this mortal life as sure as the grass withers and the flower fades, only Your Word endures and will last forever.
May Your Word revive us and guide us throughout the challenges that seem to have no resolution. Enemies - home and abroad - seem so formidable. But You are our only hope in this life as well as the life to come and the only power that can overcome the evil in this world.
Bless all Your servants, home and aboard, who stand in gap as a hedge against the full fury of the evil one. Protect Your servants who put themselves in harms way. And with Your infinite grace and mercy restore the virtues that our nation was founded upon through the power of the Holy Spirit.
In Jesus precious Name,
Continuing prayers for those who give so selflessly for our freedoms. May He bless our servicemen and women for their sacrifices, and our nation that they serve.
Blessings, Jane Long, for your prayers for our nation and all who sacrifice to keep her free.
I join in prayer for our heroes and nation!
Blessings, Alamo-Girl, for your prayers for our heroes and our country.
Blessings, fieldmarshaldj, for your steadfast prayers.
Amen to your thoughtful prayers, dearest NEWwoman.
In our troubling times, it’s important to remember that Jesus only had 12 followers when he started out, so evil cannot prevail if we keep praying.
Lord, hear our prayers.
May God always bless and keep everyone here.
Joining in prayer for our Heroes and our beloved Nation.
A beautifying project on the main road of my town prompted the demolition of a church built in the 1930s. Although the windows of the empty church had been removed, the doors remained in place for several days, even as bulldozers began knocking down walls. Each set of doors around the church building held a message written in giant, fluorescent-orange block letters: KEEP OUT!
Unfortunately, some churches whose doors are open convey that same message to visitors whose appearance doesnt measure up to their standards. No fluorescent, giant-size letters needed. With a single disapproving glance, some people communicate: Youre Not Welcome Here!
How people look on the outside, of course, is not an indicator of what is in their hearts. Gods focus is on the inner life of people. He looks far below the surface of someones appearance (1 Sam. 16:7) and thats what He desires for us to do as well. He also knows the hearts of those who appear to be righteous but are full of hypocrisy on the inside (Matt. 23:28).
Gods message of welcome, which we are to show to others, is clear. He says to all who seek Him: Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters (Isa. 55:1).
Read: Isaiah 55:1-9
Blessing, The Mayor, for your prayer and continuous prayer thread.
On this day, and all days, we humbly ask that you shower Your Divine Mercy upon our country and our heroes. We pray that You will protect us all, especially those who give selflessly to ensure our freedoms and safety.
As Your loving children, we beseech you to wrap our heroes in Your arms and let them feel Your warmth and guidance.
In Jesus’ Holy Name, we pray.
Blessings for your lovely prayer of intercession for our country and our nation, dansangel.

Blessings, Irish Rose, for your prayers upholding our nation and our heroes.
Thank you NEWwoman for reminding us to pray for the soldiers. It feels as if too many people forget to pray for our men and women over seas. I thank God for them and I pray that they will be able to overcome the enemy and return home safely.
Blessings, prpltnkr, for your prayers and your heart for our soldiers who serve home and abroad. May we stand in the gap for their safety.
Praise God for all the new intercessors on this thread.
Blessings, Hiskid, for your prayers upholding our nation and our defenders.
