Pray For Our American Heroes and Our Nation





Psalm 25 (Excerpt)



A Psalm of David.

1. To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
2. O my God, I trust in You;
Let me not be ashamed;
Let not my enemies triumph over me.
3. Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed;
Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.
4. Show me Your ways, O LORD;
Teach me Your paths.
5. Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation;
On You I wait all the day.
6. Remember, O LORD, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses,
For they are from of old.
7. Do not remember the sins of my youth,
nor my transgressions;
According to Your mercy remember me,
For Your goodness’ sake, O LORD.


Help Us, LORD, to Stand Firm in Our faith,
In Jesus Name,
Amen.

God Bless America!

Our Father,
Who Art In Heaven,
Blessed and Hallowed Be Your Most Holy Name!
You Are My Refuge and my Strength,
My very Present Help In Times Of trouble.
Your Are The One Who trains My Hands For War,
and Comforts My Heart in times of Stress.
You Are My Rock and My Redeemer,
My Strength and My Song,
My Fortress and My High Tower,
My Sword and My Shield.
I Will Not Fear The Enemy,
For If You Be With me,
Who Can Stand Against me?
For It Is Not By Might,
Not By Power,
and Not even by superior firepower and technology
that we shall overcome,
but By Your Holy Spirit,
Precious LORD, My God!
You Alone are My Strength and Song.
Some trust in Chariots,
Some in Horses,
but I depend upon You,
and You Alone.
Keep Me in Your Tender Care, Dear Father,
Keep Me In That Secret Place Under Your Wing.
Cover me With Your Feathers,
Make Me invisible to the enemy.
Keep me silent when I need to be silent,
Strong when I need to be strong,
Yielding when I need to be Yielding.
Give me the full Support and Prayers
of my People and my Government,
so I will not feel abandoned or alone.
Give me Wisdom and Power in the face of evil,
and Compassion and Kindness when it is called for
Lead me not into temptation,
and guard my heart and mind from depression,
anxiety,
loneliness,
frustration,
worry,
false religion,
and evil thoughts,
that I may be a righteous warrior for You and My People.
This I Pray in the Name Of Jesus.

Almighty and eternal God, Protect our military as they discharge their duties. Protect them with the shield of your strength and keep them safe from all evil and harm.
May the power of your love enable them to return home safely to the people who love them and to the gratitude of the American people.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

May God Guide And Heal Our Nation

Arrogance And Pride

July 21, 2013

In The Screwtape Letters written by C.S. Lewis, a senior devil urges his young protégé to divert a Christian’s thoughts away from God and focus instead on the faults of the people around him at church.

During a Sunday service, I found myself distracted and somewhat annoyed by a person near me who sang loudly off key and was out of sync during the unison readings. But when we bowed our heads for a time of silent prayer, it struck me that the Lord must surely be more pleased with that other person’s heart than with the judgmental feelings He saw in mine.

A few days later I happened to read Proverbs 8 and was struck by verse 13: “Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate.” Throughout this chapter, wisdom calls to us to gain an understanding heart (v.5) and to find life and obtain favor from the Lord (v.35). The alternative is to go through life with a superior attitude while dying inside in the process (v.36).

Pride is a sword that wounds the person who uses it along with those against whom it is used. Arrogance robs us of all God longs to give us, but “by humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life” (22:4).

Oh, just a bit of Thy meekness, my Savior,
To be the least when of self I would boast;
Finding my glory and strength in Thy favor,
Know in my weakness Thy grace can do most. —Bosch
Pride brings shame. Humility brings wisdom.

Read: Proverbs 8:12-21

Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate. —Proverbs 8:13
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 29-30; Acts 23:1-15

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.



SHADOWS AT ARLINGTON
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.

"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)

Thank you for leading us today in prayer...I join you in prayer this Lord’s Day:

Proverbs 4:23 Above all that thou guardest keep thy heart; for out of it are the issues of life. . . Psalm 119:30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness; Thine ordinances have I set [before me]. 31 I cleave unto Thy testimonies; O LORD, put me not to shame. 32 I will run the way of Thy commandments, for Thou dost enlarge my heart.

Proverbs 4:23 Above all that thou guardest keep thy heart; . . . 2 Peter 3:17…be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness, 18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Lord and Savior Yeshua the Messiah. To Him be the Glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

OH LORD, and how does a man guard his heart with all diligence…by choosing the way of faithfulness. OH LORD, we thank YOU for YOUR GREAT FAITHFULNESS toward us, sinners saved by GRACE. There is no greater choice in all this life than to choose to follow YOU, choose to receive such a GREAT SALVATION, choose to submit to THY WILL for in it is the issues of LIFE now and in all ETERNITY..AMEN. THANK YOU LORD, for YOUR FAITHFUL CALLING UPON US, YOUR CHILDREN, for without it this choice would never have been made…AMEN and AMEN. Now Dear LORD, as we rest in our SALVATION, help us to work out our SALVATION with fear and trembling for partnered with Praise and Thanksgiving for MERCY and GRACE and JUSTICE and RIGHTEOUSNESS are YOUR GREATNESS OH GOD..AMEN.

We pray over our soldiers this very day. As each one, including my own, joins in worship and fellowship to YOU OH GREAT AND AWESOME and GOOD ETERNAL GOD, help them to guard their hearts. Keep them mindful of YOUR COMMANDS, reach out so that they may cleave unto YOU in TENDER MERCY, forgive them any sins that bring shame upon their hearts and minds, redirect their wayward steps so that the command of THY HEART is in them…OH GOD…enlarge their FAITH and HEART so as to see YOUR GLORY in all they do. Amen and Amen.
