Pray for our American Heroes and Nation

TOPICS: Prayer
KEYWORDS: military; pray; prayer
Father God, we continue to marvel at the extent of Your mercy, compassion and loving-kindness. Were it not for Your Word continually assuring us that You are Love itself, it would be completely beyond our comprehension. What can we say but, “How Great Thou Art”.

By Your command, we are here boldly before Your throne to call upon Your mercy and grace on behalf of our Nation and our beloved military men and women. It is only by grace that we are saved and it is only by grace that we can stand. Father, our hurting Nation needs GRACE. Revive Your people and show us what our part is in Your plan to bring multitudes into Your Kingdom and to let righteousness and truth prevail, overcoming evil with good. Lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Teach us how to love our neighbors into Your Kingdom. In the midst of all the evil reports, help us to keep Love in the forefront of our thinking.

How we love and appreciate all the military men and women that You have called to protect and defend us. Deliver them from evil and give them their daily bread. Let Your Kingdom come in each one’s life and amongst them, and let the peace that comes from forgiveness rule and reign in their lives.

We worship You, our God, as we look forward to an eternity of praising You for Who and all You are. Thank You for the blood and name of Jesus Christ by Whom we can fellowship with You. We pray in His name. Amen.

“How we love and appreciate all the military men and women that You have called to protect and defend us.”
Amen!

Dearest HisKid, I love your entire prayer.
Amen, Amen, Amen.

We are surrounded by evil, yet His word and Love must prevail, so long as we keep praying!

Lord, hear our prayers.

Stand Firm

July 10, 2013

As our final project for a high school earth science class, a friend and I built a stream table. With extensive help from my father, we built a long plywood box with a hinge in the middle. Then we lined it with plastic and filled it with sand. At one end we attached a hose. At the other end was a drainage hole. After assembling all of it, we raised one end of the stream table, turned on the water, and watched as it created a path directly to the hole at the other end. The next part of the experiment was to place a rock in the stream and watch how it changed the path of the water.

This project taught me as much about life as it did about science. I learned that I can’t change the direction things are going if I’m on the bank of the river. I have to step into the stream of life and stand there to divert the flow. That’s what Jesus did. The Bible refers to salvation as a rock (2 Sam. 22:47; Ps. 62:2,6-7), and the apostle Paul clarifies that Christ is that Rock (1 Cor. 10:4). God placed Jesus in the stream of history to change its course.

When we remain steadfast in Christ, abounding in the work of the Lord, God uses us to change the course of history through acts of obedience that turn others to Him.

The Master is seeking a harvest
In lives He’s redeemed by His blood;
He seeks for the fruit of the Spirit
And works that will glorify God.
—H.S. Lehman. © 1924 H. S. Lehman
Be sure to put your feet in the right place, then stand firm. —Abraham Lincoln

Read: Colossians 1:19-27

Be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. —1 Corinthians 15:58
Bible in a Year:
Job 41-42; Acts 16:22-40

Amen.

Heavenly Father, please hear the pleas of your humble servants, that You may grant Your veil of protection and everlasting love for our American Heroes past and present. We feel imminent danger of despair and defeat upon our backs. Please guide our heroes, and ourselves, to peace and safety.

We ask for Your blessings in Jesus’ holy name.

Amen

....being confident of this very thing, that He who hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the Day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6 KJ21

Dear LORD GOD, I echo the Praise and Glory of the Depth of YOUR LOVE over us and over those who YOU have called to be servants of this country and for that matter, eachother. OH LORD, we are confident in YOUR GRACE and MERCY, we are confident in YOUR STRENGTH and POWER, and we pray OH LORD, that YOU WILL give them this same confidence within themselves to work the work that YOU have given them, knowing all along that it is not by power or by might but by YOUR SPIRIT to the Glory of YOUR NAME, the good of their souls, and the forbearance and betterment of our nation. We are every Grateful to YOU and grateful to those who serve...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, albeit weary, ill-equipped, and untrained volunteers who straggled into Valley Forge on 19 December 1777 arose, with the help of some gallant friends from across the waves, the cohesive fighting force that became the United States Army, global defender of Freedom and scourge of Tyrants.



AS GENERAL WASHINGTON lifted his prayers on high in that bleak Winter, 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.

God Of Our Fathers, Whose Almighty Hand

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.
