Pray For Our American Heroes and Our Nation

He has saved us and called us to a holy life,
—not because of anything we have done,
but because of his own purpose and grace.
This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,

2 Timothy 1:9 (NIV)

----


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

John Newton (1725- 1807)

But by the grace of God I am what I am,
and his grace to me was not without effect.
No, I worked harder than all of them—
yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.

1 Corinthians 15:10 (NIV)

Please check out the video clip below

which has whipped up racial hatred and division in America -

Amazing Grace

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

Heavenly Father –

As some media pundits continue to magnify and distort selected events that fit “a narrative,” it seems that, as a people, we have drifted far from the pursuit of truth and become a divided nation. We confess our national sins, which have left festering wounds and reopened deep scars that have never been healed. And may we resolve to oppose those with perverse motives of self-aggrandizement and promotion of unholy agendas, who have widened our division with the wedge of misinformation and emotional manipulation.

May we turn to you, Father in Heaven, for healing, which only Your Son can offer in the balm of His sacrifice for our sins. May a moving of Your Spirit arrest the evil machinations that are set against You and Your people and promote the sin of mob rule.

We ask for a heart of discernment – to know right and wrong as You have decreed it in Your Holy Word. The moving of Your Spirit is the only hope for unity and healing as well as to bring back our nation to the purpose, which you have called us from our founding.

Bless all those serving others, who stand in the gap to protect us from harm on all fronts – from attacks instigated by the Evil One upon our minds, our bodies, and our souls. And through Your amazing grace, may a spark set ablaze a Revival in our country and ignite another Great Awakening.

In Jesus’ precious Name,
Amen

Keep praying for America

Taking Root

July 26, 2013

A small area of my yard just couldn’t seem to get going. The grass always seemed sparse in that spot, no matter how well I watered it.

So one day I stuck a shovel into this troublesome real estate and discovered the problem: Just below the surface was a layer of stones about three inches deep. This led me to replace the stones with rich topsoil in which new seeds could take root.

Jesus talked about seed and soils. In a parable in Matthew 13 about what happens when the seed of the gospel is sown on various kinds of ground, He said that seeds that land on stones and “not much earth” grow quickly but then die in the sun (vv.5-6). He was speaking of one who has heard and received the gospel, but in whose life the message doesn’t take root. When trouble comes, this person—who is not a genuine believer—falls away.

How grateful we can be for Jesus’ words that conclude this parable: “He who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the Word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit” (v.23). What a reminder of both the privilege and the responsibility that accompanies our salvation.

Praise God for the seed of the gospel and the soil of spiritual growth.

Lord, I would be soil in which You can plant
Your Word with its promise of fruit;
I want to be open to You every day,
So what You have planted takes root. —Hess
A heart open to God is soil in which the seed of His Word can flourish.

Read: Matthew 13:1-9

Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up. —Matthew 13:5
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 40-42; Acts 27:1-26

So very AMEN Dear NEWwoman for this prayer and petition before the FATHER of ALL MERCY, the LORD of AMAZING GRACE, the SPIRIT of TRUTH...ONE GOD FOREVER AND EVER AMEN.

Dear LORD, we lift up our very beings before YOU today, hands, hearts, minds, souls...all that we are, asking YOU to shower this country once again with AMAZING GRACE and DIVINE MERCY for we have left our first LOVE. Dear LORD, as we look into YOUR WORD, as in the past, we know that it could only take ONE RIGHTEOUS MAN working in the POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, humble and willing to move in YOUR GREAT WILL to do the miraculous. We look within the corridors of the Hall of Faith in Hebrews and know this is possible...we LOOK INTO THE FACE OF CHRIST and KNOW IT HAS BEEN DONE for each of us to the GLORY OF HIS GREAT NAME, THE GLORY OF YOUR GREAT SOVEREIGN WILL, THE GLORY OF THE SPIRIT’s WORK. Amen. OH LORD, we ask for great faith to arise in the hearts of our men and women in service. We pray for their SALVATION and ask that they become the very catalysts who will lead this country back to being a country dependent upon YOU. OH LORD, I stumble at praying for our President, to my own shame...because I know that ALL POWER is YOURS and his heart can be either be changed in an instant or hardened as well. So, we lift him up before YOU, OH SOVEREIGN LORD, and ask that THY WILL BE DONE upon him, for the SPIRIT KNOWS how to pray when we ought. Amen.

Heavenly Father,

We continue to be amazed by the depth of Your love and compassion. We are forever grateful for the favors You have bestowed upon us. We promise to show our gratitude by honoring, loving, and proclaiming Your glory every waking moment and unconditionally.

We humbly ask you to shield our American heroes from harm, and to embrace America, holding it in safety against the evil with which satan and his minions attempt to defile it. We place our trust in You, dear Father, that you will deliver us and our heroes from the darkness.

We ask these favors in Jesus’ Holy Name.
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.

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.

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)
