Pray For Our American Heroes and Our Nation (6/13/2014) [Prayer]
13 June 2014 | NEWwoman

Posted on 06/12/2014 9:36:42 PM PDT by NEWwoman

Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves
in every way: in great endurance;
in troubles, hardships and distresses;

in beatings, imprisonments and riots;
in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger;

in purity, understanding, patience and kindness;
in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love;

in truthful speech and in the power of God;
with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left;

through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report;
genuine, yet regarded as impostors;

known, yet regarded as unknown;
dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed;

sorrowful, yet always rejoicing;
poor, yet making many rich;
having nothing, and yet possessing everything.

2 Corinthians 6:4-10 (NIV)

Remember Flag Day – June 14th

Please check out the video clip below -
an excerpt from FDR’s Flag Day Speech – June 14, 1942
with actual footage of soldiers during the war
from the ending credits of World War II in HD :

(text from video clip)

The Spirit of man has awakened
The Soul of man has gone forth

Grant us the wisdom and the vision
to comprehend the greatness of man's Spirit
that suffers and endures so hugely for a goal
beyond his own brief span …

We are all of us children of Earth
Grant us that simple knowledge
If our brothers are oppressed,
then we are oppressed …
If they hunger, we hunger …
If their freedom is taken away,
our freedom is not secure ..

Grant us a common faith,
that man shall know bread and peace …
That he shall know justice and righteousness,
Freedom and security, an equal opportunity,
and an equal chance to do his best,
not only in our own lands, but throughout the world.

And in that faith, let us march, march toward the clean world,
our hands can make.
Amen

Remember me with favor, my God.

Nehemiah 13:30 (NIV)

----

------------------------------

Heavenly Father –

Over seventy years ago, President Franklin Roosevelt expressed hope for a better world even as the world convulsed in the intense battles of World War Two. And on Flag Day, may we remember all who exemplify man’s spirit - that suffers and endures so hugely for a goal beyond his own brief span.

Yet, there is no peace for the wicked, and no hope for peace without the Prince of Peace reigning in our hearts. Give us a spirit of repentance and dependence on You, Father. May Your Spirit fill us and equip us to fight the mortal enemy of our souls, who has spiritual strongholds in high places of our country and the world.

May all of God’s people be united in Your Spirit. For only You, Father, can bring forth justice and righteousness, freedom and security, an equal opportunity - all these things yearned for in FDR’s Flag Day prayer.

Bless all Your servants, home and aboard, who put themselves in harm’s way to serve and protect us and keep us safe. Also, bless the families of those who serve, who also sacrifice. And bless our country – though so undeserving – by Your infinite grace and mercy.

In Jesus’ precious Name,
Amen

-----------

Give thanks to the LORD,
for he is good;
his love endures forever.

Psalm 118:1 (NIV)

Keep praying for America

It’s my fervent prayer every night before I go to sleep that the dear Lord bless us and watch over us, that he protects those true, brave men and women who are the boots on the ground of America, who are fighting for us and this country.

Amen. Amen.

Father, we also pray that You would cause that love that is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit to abound. Keep us from bitterness and anger against those in leadership, especially for the cause of those lost in defending freedom. Thank You for completing the work You have begun in Your children. Amen.

To you, too, NEWwoman. It seems to be one of the first things on my mind when I awake in the morning, and the last thing at night.
