Posted on 07/25/2013 9:16:56 PM PDT by NEWwoman
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,
I join in prayer for our heroes and nation!
A small area of my yard just couldnt 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 doesnt take root. When trouble comes, this personwho is not a genuine believerfalls 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.
Read: Matthew 13:1-9

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.
Amen to your prayer, In Jesus Name.
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.
Joining in prayer.
