Pray for our American Heroes and Nation
Hiskid

Posted on 01/15/2014 8:22:37 AM PST by Hiskid



TOPICS: Prayer
KEYWORDS: military; pray; prayer
Thank You, Father, for free access to Your throne through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. We come to You boldly this day with thanksgiving for all the men and women You have given us to protect our beloved United States of America.

We thank You for each member of our military who have given up their personal plans and purposes in order to defend us. We ask You for their protection whether or not they are in harm's way. We are asking for protection for them physically, emotionally and spiritually. Give wisdom to the leaders to devise plans and attacks in order to secure our victory. Let it be like Hezekiah said, "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him. With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the LORD our God to help us and to fight our battles." (2 Chronicles 32:7-8)

We pray also, Father, for others who are standing up where You have put them to say, "no" to those things which are working against the principles You gave our founding fathers. Today, Sir, I pray for Pastors and spiritual leaders who boldly speak out against Governmental plans and plainly show which ones run contrary to Your Word. We know that many are placing their ministries in danger by doing so. Show them favor with God and man and open doors of utterance for them. Our faith is in Your Word which, like a two-edged sword, cuts and divides. Encourage them by Your Spirit and through servants to keep up this good fight. We put You in remembrance of Your Word which says that they are blessed with Abraham and everything they set their hands to is a success. Provider, let the funds they need to stand and proclaim come to them freely.

We bless You for each and every one who loves our country and is obedient to do his part in working for her preservation. Greater are You in us than He that is in the world. Thank You in Jesus' name. Amen.

Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. Acts 5:29

Food In The Cupboard

January 15, 2014

Read: Matthew 6:25-34

Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about . . . what you will put on. —Matthew 6:25
Bible in a Year:
Genesis 36-38; Matthew 10:21-42

My friend Marcia, the director of the Jamaica Christian School for the Deaf, recently illustrated an important way to look at things. In a newsletter article she titled “A Blessed Start,” she pointed out that for the first time in 7 years the school began the new year with a surplus. And what was that surplus? A thousand dollars in the bank? No. Enough school supplies for the year? No. It was simply this: A month’s supply of food in the cupboard.

When you’re in charge of feeding 30 hungry kids on a shoestring budget, that’s big! She accompanied her note with this verse from 1 Chronicles 16:34, “Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.”

Year after year Marcia trusts God to provide for the children and staff at her school. She never has much—whether it’s water or food or school supplies. Yet she is always grateful for what God sends, and she is faithful to believe that He will continue to provide.

As we begin a new year, do we have faith in God’s provision? To do so is to take our Savior at His word when He said, “Do not worry about your life . . . . Do not worry about tomorrow” (Matt. 6:25,34).

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength. —Corrie ten Boom

Amen to your beautiful prayer, Hiskid
Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength
They will soar on wings like eagles.. Isaiah 40:31


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.

O Lord, Guide Our Nation

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.


Lafayette

Steuben

Pulaski

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.



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.

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)
