TOPICS: Prayer
KEYWORDS: military; pray; prayer
To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. We worship You, and thank You for the encouragement You give us to come boldly before Your throne to receive help and grace. We rejoice in this audience with the King!!

We are here to receive help and grace for each member of our United States military men and women. According to Your promise, marvelous God, we speak to them to “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Thank You, Sir, for going with them and never leaving nor forsaking them! Cause each one to be a success at what they do and let Your angels keep guard over them.

Today, Father, we pray for Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Eric K. Shinseki. We pray That Your Holy Spirit would reveal Yourself and Your goodness and holiness to Eric Shinseki, his wife and his children, drawing them closer to Yourself and Your grace. We pray for wisdom and integrity for Secretary Shinseki as he leads the activities of the Department of Veterans Affairs.

We pray today also, Sir, for the Peace of Jerusalem and the salvation of all Israel. “Blessed be the LORD, who has given rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of all His good promise, which He promised through His servant Moses. May the LORD our God be with (them), as He was with their fathers. May He not leave them nor forsake them, that He may incline their hearts to Himself, to walk in all His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, which He commanded their fathers.” (1 Kings 8: 56-58)

Thank You for answering today’s petitions as we pray together in Jesus’ name.

Not All Empty

December 18, 2013

Read: Psalm 107:1-9

He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. —Psalm 107:9
Bible in a Year:
Obadiah; Revelation 9

Our granddaughter Julia spent the summer working in an orphanage in Busia, Uganda. On the final day of her internship, she went to the children to tell each one goodbye. One little girl named Sumaya was very sad and said to her, “Tomorrow you leave us, and next week the other aunties [interns] leave.”

When Julia agreed that she was indeed leaving, Sumaya thought for a minute and exclaimed, “But we will be all empty. None of you will be left!” Again, Julia agreed. The little girl thought a few moments and replied: “But God will be with us, so we won’t be all empty.”

If we are honest with ourselves, we know that “all empty” feeling. It is an emptiness that friendship, love, sex, money, power, popularity, or success can never assuage—a longing for something indefinable, something incalculably precious but lost. Every good thing can remind, beckon, and awaken in us a greater desire for that elusive “something more.” The closest we get is a hint, an echo in a face, a painting, a scene . . . . And then it is gone. “Our best havings are wantings,” said C. S. Lewis.

We were made for God, and in the end, nothing less will satisfy us. Without Him, we are all empty. He alone fills the hungry with good things (Ps. 107:9).

Dear Lord, fill me with Your goodness and love.
I desire nothing in heaven and earth but You.
Without You, I have nothing. Thank You for the
abiding satisfaction that we can find in You.
God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself because it is not there. —C. S. Lewis

Joining in your prayers over our military, our veterans, over Israel. May we never forget...any of them. May our petitions be always before the LORD for BLESSING. Amen.

The Lord commands us to Bless those who Persecute you, Pray for those who harm you. I struggle with that when it comes to praying for the nations….and as I prayed about “that” today….I opened up a study I am doing and the title for today was: God’s dealing with the Nations, and Isaiah 19:18-25 was referenced. The author of the study spoke of a visitation of God’s power and Spirit coming to the Arab world. . . That God loves all peoples the same . . . God promises redemption to Israel and to bless the surrounding nations . . . That this awaits the fulfillment in the Messianic Age . . . That God will strike the Arab world to heal them . . . Israel exists as a blessing to them too. <3 LORD, help me to overcome and teach me to pray for the Arab nations as well. OH LORD we look for the fulfillment of THY KINGDOM COME..Amen.

Isaiah 19:18-25 In that day five cities in the land of Egypt will be speaking the language of the Canaan and swearing allegiance to the LORD of hosts; one will be called the city of Destruction. In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD near its border. And it will become a sign and a witness to the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the LORD because of oppressors, and HE will send them a SAVIOR and a CHAMPION, and HE will deliver them. Thus the LORD will make Himself known to Egypt, and the Egyptians will know the LORD in that day. They will even worship with sacrifice and offering, and will make a vow to the LORD and perform it. And the LORD will strike Egypt, striking but healing, so they will return to the LORD, and He will respond to them and will heal them. In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrians will come into Egypt and the Egyptians into Assyria, and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians. In that day Israel will be the third party with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth, whom the LORD of hosts has blessed saying, “Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My Hands, and Israel My inheritance.

"Let Tyrants Shake Their Iron Rod"
William Billings
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.




FROM THE BRAVE, albeit weary, ill-equipped, and untrained volunteers who marched 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.

God Of Our Fathers, Whose Almighty Hand
Morman Tabernacle Choir

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)
