Lord, we pray for all our military men and women, that You would give grace to each one of them, and be with their families as well.
Lord, as violence continues in Ukraine, we pray that You would restore peace to that country, that You would give wisdom to its people and its government, and show them mercy.
Father, there have been many gods and many lords worshiped and followed on earth so-called gods, perishing rulers, idols that are nothing at all in the world. You are the only true God, the one God the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live. And there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. All other gods, which did not make the earth or the heavens, will perish from the earth and from under the heavens. But You, the Creator of all things, reign eternally, and there is none for us but You our God, by whom and for whom we live, through Jesus Christ our only Lord, Amen.
A call to prayer.
Joining with you in prayer for Our American Heroes and for Our Beloved Nation.
Amen, Irish Rose
Praying for peace in Ukraine and other places (like Venezuela) which don’t make the news. May we turn to the Prince of Peace.
Lifting up America and her heroes as we may turn from false gods to the One Living God.
Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake of Jamaica made history when they finished first and second respectively in both the mens 100-meter and 200-meter race in the 2012 London Olympics. Despite their rivalry on the track, Bolt paid tribute to Blake as a training partner: Over the years, Yohan has made me a better athlete. He really pushed me and kept me on my toes. Its clear that the two spurred each other on to greatness on the track.
As believers in Christ, we have the privilege and responsibility of encouraging one another in our faith. The writer of Hebrews said, Let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works (Heb. 10:24).
The church is not just an institution or a mere social club. It is where we, who have been brought near to God and washed from sin, can help one another grow in Christlikeness. The purpose of meeting together as a corporate body is to exhort and encourage one another (vv.19-25).
No believer can function alone. To live as our Lord Jesus wants us to, we need the community of believers. As you meet with other believers, think of who you can come alongside and encourage by your words and actions to be more like the Christ we love and serve.
Praying with you for our Heroes and our beloved Nation.
I join in prayer for our heroes and nation!
Joining you in Prayer and Praise, Dear Servant of our King.
Amen to Every Power-Filled Word of your Anointed Prayer.
