Prayer of Our American Heroes and Nation
July 16, 2013 | Jeanbl

Posted on 07/16/2013 3:01:45 AM PDT by Jeanbl

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God...

Ephesians 3:16-19



TOPICS: Prayer
KEYWORDS: military
'Boldness is not bravado, but is rooted in deep conviction based on deep relationship and unswerving obedience. And it's effects resound through history.' . . . Oh LORD, throughout the glory of our nation, we have had men and women of faith serve this great country from hearts that have cultivated an intimate relationship with YOU, and had been ready to be launched into the arena of death-dealing humanity. Whether it be from land, sea or sky, their lack of fear and Your love for others revealed JESUS to many souls. Amen.

OH SAVING LORD, OH VICTORIOUS CHRIST, in the POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, I pray for this generation of men and women. Dear LORD, I pray for a FULL and COMPLETE range of GLORY to be revealed in each of their hearts to the PRAISE of YOUR NAME and the Good of their souls. I pray for a depth of faith so deep that nothing, noone, no power, nor force and pluck them out of YOUR HAND, OH GOD. Fill them with the fullness of all that is theirs in CHRIST JESUS, OUR LORD, OUR KING, OUR SAVIOR, OUR FRIEND, OUR GOD...for their is no VICTORY outside HIS PRECIOUS NAME...Amen.

In the rising of the sun and its going down;

We remember them.

In the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter;

We remember them.

In the blueness of the sky and in the warmth of summer;

We remember them.

In the rustling of leaves and in the beauty of autumn;

We remember them.

When we are lost and sick at heart;

We remember them.

When we have joys we yearn to share;

We remember them.

So long as we live, they too shall live;

We remember them

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.

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.

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)

Hard Way To Strength

July 16, 2013

Diamonds are beautiful and valuable gemstones, but their beginning is common carbon—black, dirty, and combustible. Through years of intense heat and high pressure, they become pure and strong. This makes them a good metaphor for spiritual strength; God uses intense outside forces to rid us of impurities and to perfect His strength in us.

God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness, says the apostle Paul (2 Cor. 12:9). I wish this were not true because I hate being weak. Chemotherapy and radiation treatments taught me more than I ever wanted to know about physical weakness. Then a minor event plunged me into a state of emotional weakness that caught me off guard. After losing 3 feet of hair and being bald for nearly a year, one bad haircut should not have been a big deal. But it was, and I felt silly for being so weak. Some of us are able to create an illusion of strength and self-sufficiency. But sudden loss of health, employment, or a treasured relationship is a startling reminder of our total dependence on God.

When we experience the fiery furnace of suffering—whether physical or emotional, whether persecution from without or humiliation from within—God’s loving purpose is to make us pure and strong.

God uses testing in our lives
To rid us of impurity
And teach us that our strength’s in Him
And not in self-sufficiency. —Sper
Suffering is the fire that God uses to purify and strengthen us.

Read: 2 Corinthians 12:1-10

My strength is made perfect in weakness. —2 Corinthians 12:9
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 16-17; Acts 20:1-16
