DAILY/HOURLY Prayers for Newt Gingrich and Our Survival As A Free People
Free Republic ^ | 1-30-12 | All Praying Freepers

Posted on 01/30/2012 7:32:15 PM PST by Bradís Gramma

Edited on 01/30/2012 7:52:37 PM PST by Jim Robinson. [history]

I am calling all praying Freepers, Jewish and Christian, to this thread...as a place to gather to offer our prayers to God's Heavenly Throne for prayer for our nation. For prayers for Newt Gingrich, that he can withstand the forces of evil that are surrounding him.

Obama's acting like a dictator. Romney's just plain being mean. Some of the talk show hosts are disappointing us. Yet WE, few but mighty, can help our country and Mr. Gingrich through prayer. It's MY belief that we wouldn't be in this mess in the first place had we all been doing just that.

As I said in the first thread, this is a PRAYER thread...please come here to offer them to God. We need His help SO badldy. We've failed Him by allowing the leftists to chip away at our society. We've not gotten on our knees and asked for forgiveness for our sins.

Please join in prayer..."Wherever two or more are gathered in My name..."

" I am praying for God to help us out of this mess but I’m not going to try and tell God how to do it."

I think your words sum up what most of us feel even as we are REALLY praying for Newt's victory tonight. Afterall, we ARE told to ask!

But--we also know that His will, not ours, must be done. And that can be a pretty bitter "cup" to swallow at times. Yet I truly believe that when such a cup is given--no matter how "galling" it may taste (as would be the case if Romney wins Florida, and--worse--the nomination), it is meant to somehow "work together for good" for those who love God.

Now as to just exactly how?

I HAVE NO CLUE!!:)!

Just because an outcome to the worlds happenings does not play out as we determine it shoud does not mean that God has not intervened,...in all these you listed how do you know that HE did not intervene?....

God entervened in Noah's Day...and again in Sodom and Gamorrah...and ceertainly at Jesus Birth, death and ressurection....but it was not as Man determined...He did not come as a King...nor did HE leave as the King people thought he should have been.

So how do you know if God hasn't intervened in this election?.... I say because we see plenty of evidence there's warfare occurring you can pretty much establish He is a part of this...

If you are relying on Newt to save the Republic then you are extremely misguided.

Dearest Lord, hear our prayer.
You have promised us that “lo, I will be with you always, even until the end of the world” so abide with us as the darkness deepens, for your presence is needed to comfort us tonight. We look forward to the dawning of a new day and we pray for your blessing and ask you to shine the light of your favor upon us as we battle on in the fight to save our nation. Today was not the end, but yet another beginning and only with your help can the evil that besets us in this most desperate fight be foiled. We love you, we praise you and we thank you for your most precious gift, Jesus Christ, your son, our Lord and in his name we pray. Amen.

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

I need Thy presence every passing hour.
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

MagnoliaB....I must apologize to you. You can call that post...posting while semi-awake. :(

Seriously..I am very very sorry. There was a person on here who ended up being zotted. I read your question, which WAS, I see now...incredibly innocent. And I was an incredible dweeb and “heard” you wrong.

Now...to have the mods remove my post. Please forgive me.

I’m relying on whomever God chooses, if He does so...to save the Republic.

That’s why we’re all praying.

Perhaps it’s His will NOT to save us...perhaps we HAVE gone too far, too long, down the wrong path. History has shown that when I country turns it’s back on God...it falls.

We’re praying for that not to be the case here.

Father in Heaven, We place this country into your hands, trusting you to watch over those of us that call you by YOUR Name.
We place Newt Gingrich in YOUR care as well. We know YOU claimed him as your own when he repented of his sins and accepted YOUR SON, Jesus Christ as his Saviour.

Guide Newt Gingrich and his family. If it be YOUR will lead him to the presidentcy of the United States so that he can help bring this country closer to YOUR Direction.

“think your words sum up what most of us feel even as we are REALLY praying for Newt’s victory tonight.”

You know, sometimes God may not grant a prayer request for a specific reason.

Perhaps He wanted Newt to lose tonight, because a loss at the hands of a sleezy campaign by Romney may just fire up Newts support in states more friendly to his conservative message and put Newt over the top in the end. I know I am angry and fired up!

I’m in Southern California in a pretty conservative part in eastern LA county. We are the last primary. We very well be the deciders in this fight. If that is the case I can assure I will be volunteering ever minute of my free time to help NEWT!

That poster is zot, dearest caww.

I’m about to sign out for this night.

Newt Gingrich had a tough day, so I’m praying extra for him and his family tonight.

God give them strength to carry on and grow stronger. He’s carrying our battle against the evil establishment that’s fighting the radical change Newt knows we need to save and restore our Republic.

God be with Newt.

Lord hear our prayers.

May God bless and protect Newt Gingrich, all of his patriot supporters and everyone here.

Sorry, perhaps I should have been more specific. We should be investing in ourselves as the saviors of this Republic. No one politician, especially a career pol like Newt is going to help us. We can’t rely on the Presidency, Congress or the Judiciary any longer, they are all far too corrupt. The individual.. Mr and Mrs John Q Public is what is going to save this country.

Your apology is most certainly accepted. It is easy to misread what someone types sometimes as opposed to a face to face conversation where you can hear the voice and see a person's facial expressions. I have had to apologize at times also. Forget about it.

God helps those who help themselves.

You are, of course, correct. The safety, welfare and sanctity of any democracy is in the hands of the people of that country.

In the case of the USA, your President is seen as the representative of the people. Their avatar, if you like. It sounds strange, I know, but not to anyone from a democratic or semi democratic monarchy - which well over half the world is.

Who you elect shows the color of the nation’s soul. Have you not noticed a huge increase in the perception (abroad) of Americans as entitled, vapid and spoiled since 2008?

Of course it isn’t correct for the huge majority, I know that personally.
But the perception is there, thanks to your public face - your president. That is who we see, and who we foreigners judge you by. Hollywood is fake and most TV is fake - everyone knows that. Your President is real.

Newt is a flawed man. Ain’t we all? But to me, he epitomizes the one truly outstanding aspect of the average American. He is PROUD to be American. The sort of guy who, when you have a problem, says “Stop whining and let’s fix it. Here is how.”

I will keep praying - not just for Newt, but for the millions of Americans who ARE the country.
And keep phoning when I can, writing as and where I can, contributing where I can. We can ask God for help. It is always provided. It does not excuse us from working as hard as we can.

Sorry for the aside. Not quite a prayer, I know, but something I feel strongly about.

Someone said on a thread and my response...

“I don’t know, but it is certainly possible that some Evangelicals felt that Newt should have honored the Ten Commandments. Some religious people are funny that way.”


Your SINS are worse then my sin kinda thing?

THAT sure isn’t scriptural, EVERYONE of us have broken the ten commandments. Seems to me some, even on FR, need to check their hearts and renew their relationship with Jesus Christ.

In fact as I was praying for this country last night and for Newt Gingrich. It occurred to me that many are revealing their true “lack of” walk with God and just maybe that is why there is a Santorum, Romney, and Newt Gingrich.

Where is our FAITH in GOD? Maybe THAT is what God is doing to this Country and to you and to me and everyone else individually.

The Scripture “IF my people, who are called by MY NAME, Shall humble themselves (Check their own heart, motives, attitudes, sin, and confess pride, hate, judgmental attitudes, etc against a brother/sister in Christ) and pray....

GOD will hear from Heaven and HEAL their LAND.


LORD forgive us for failure to walk uprightly with YOU.
Forgive us for our Judgmental attitude towards each other
and the ease in which we will trash a brother in Christ just because we don’t want him as our choice to vote for Or because he or she will not vote for our choice.
Help us keep our EYES on YOU and teach us to be a light to this Dark Country and World we live in.

Then, as YOU said in YOUR word, YOU Father, thru your Son Jesus Christ will HEAR FROM HEAVEN and HEAL OUR LAND.
