Pray for our American Heroes

Sing to God, sing praise to his name,
extol him who rides on the clouds –
his name is the LORD –
and rejoice before him.
A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,
is God in his holy dwelling.
God sets the lonely in families,
he leads forth the prisoners with singing;
but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
(Psalm 68:4-6)

Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your kindness, and we seek You in Jesus' Name.

Father, we say a special prayer today for those among our troops who serve You. Guard their faith, and teach them to express it in wisdom and love. Make them shine Your light.

Lord, we pray for Davion Navar Henry Only, that You would provide a home and a family for him. We ask that You would be a Father to him, and bring him into Your household.

O God, whose Name is the LORD, who rides on the clouds, on the ancient skies above – we extol You and sing praise to Your Name. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling. You set the lonely in families and lead forth the prisoners with singing, but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land. Many, O God, will rejoice before You, because of Your great mercy and love. You seek the lost and the straying; You make the poor rich, the blind to see, the sorrowing to rejoice, and the sinful to be pure. We thank You, Lord, and praise You in the Name of Christ Jesus, who carried our sins and our sicknesses, Amen.

How Long?

October 19, 2013

For 9 long years, Saul hounded David as “one hunts a partridge in the mountains” (1 Sam. 26:20). “How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever?” David prayed. “How long will You hide Your face from me? . . . How long will my enemy be exalted over me?” (Ps. 13:1-2).

Prolonged affliction often vexes us as well. We want a sudden solution, a quick fix. But some things can’t be fixed. They can only be borne.

But we can complain to God in our troubles. We have a heavenly Father who wants us to engage with Him in our struggles. He understands His children as no one else can.

When we turn to Him with our complaints, we come to our senses. In David’s case, his thoughts went back to life’s certainty: God’s love. David reminded himself: “I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me” (vv.5-6). Sufferings may persist, but David could sing in the midst of his trials, for he was God’s beloved child. That’s all he needed to know.

A. W. Thorold writes, “The highest pinnacle of the spiritual life is not happy joy in unbroken sunshine, but absolute and undoubting trust in the love of God.”

Even in our troubles, God’s love can be trusted.

O yes, He cares; I know He cares,
His heart is touched with my grief;
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary,
I know my Savior cares! —Graeff
God’s love stands when all else fails.

Read: Psalm 13

How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? —Psalm 13:1
Bible in a Year:
Isaiah 56-58; 2 Thessalonians 2

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"

Mixed District Choir, Fairfax, Virginia

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.


Lafayette

Steuben

Pulaski

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.

Standing with you in 100% Agreement, with Thanksgiving for your Wonderful Prayer Ministry.
