Prayer Thread For Our Country and Tomorrow's Voting
2-13-12 | Brad's Gramma

Posted on 03/13/2012 12:45:31 AM PDT by Bradís Gramma

Kids, it's time to get REAL serious with our prayers for tomorrow's voting. We all know what's at stake here. Obama the socialist, Romney with the socialist-light (cough) agenda.

Our children, grandchildren, WWII vets and their wives...deserve better than what they're getting, or if this whole thing goes south, with what we're ALL going to get!

There is SUCH a darkness hanging over this land. God Himself gave this to us and we've squandered it. I don't know if we've reached the point of no return with Him or not.

All I ask is that we ALL get on our knees and pray for forgiveness. Pray that He will heal our land.

Lord GOD, please heal this land, please forgive us our sins, please let us have ONE MORE CHANCE to stand as men and women of faith and never EVER let this happen again. Father...hear our prayers. In Your Name, Amen

I hear ya. It may help us to remember this passage:

“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

2 Chronicles 7:14

Romans 8:38-39 also..

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,

39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Prayer and changed heart is the only real hope for our nation. In it's darkest days of it's founding a General later to become our nations first President was seen kneeling in private prayer at Valley Forge. His troops lacked food and provisions for the winter. But The Lord provided.

Our nation has taken a very severe moral decline the depths of which unseen since it's founding. There has always been immoral persons. But it is the heart of this nation as a people which is growing cold. The nation which has allowed the very government we elect to remove all mention of our creator GOD from our nation.

I'm not a Biblical Scholar by any stretch. But I read in The Bible where nations were judged and what they were being judged for. We are in serious jeopardy of our nation being judged and I don't say that lightly. Our leaders in a very real sense are our judgment. So has it been through the ages.

A profound statement and a lesson we ignore at our peril. We are truly at a crossroads, a real war between good and evil. We can NOT allow evil to be victorious.

Lord Jesus,

As the morning now approaches we are very much mindful of the opportunity to bring to you the voters of this day who will be selecting a candidate at the ballot box...we ask you give them wisdom to discern the significance of this election and all which stands in the balance for our country.

Lord, we believe fully that you raise up the leaders of all nations , just as your word does say....we also recognize that this is sometimes to correct us for having refused your rightful place among us..... Forgive us Lord for not seeing or standing as we should for you when it was time that we should have......but we are doing so now... and this to give you back the Glory of this Nation under Your sovereignty and leadership once again.

Choose then Lord, the man who will best serve your purposes.... for You, for this country and it's citizens...that we may once again BE One Nation Under God.

In Christ's name, who redeemed us from death, also now do so for our country....Amen.

Very interesting to read your post After posting a prayer concerning our nation. Thank you for writing that as it needs to be said..and that more often.

It’s not only morally that this nation has stooped so low....but in every area of life . And I’m not so sure it’s the bad peoples fault....we’ve let it happen by not taking stands in force when we should have.

We’re all afraid to make judgement calls on that which should not be tolerated...and we let them use the “Don’t Judge” stance which is nonesense. We are called to make righteous judgements as His ambassadors to a dying world, yet at every turn the peoples hands and mouths are sealed by stupid and frivilous laws and lawyers eager til fill their coffers with bogus lawsuits against the common man.

I was told not to interfer again after I had interferred when a father was abusing his son in my place of business or I would loose my job if the father sued the company. well you know what...I told them if I was faced again with that situation I would act accordingly just as I had done this time. They were silent and I am still working.

For Mr. Santorum will not initiate anything, Mr. Gingrich should do the followings:
1. Announce that HE WILL ONLY campaign in Louisiana, NY, Arkansas, TX, New Mexico, and Montana.
2. Encourage his avid supporters like myself to vote for Santorum in Missouri, Wisconsin, Penn., West Virginia, Cali., Kentucky, South Dakota, Nebraska.
3. Tell Ron Paul’s supporters that he will make Dr. Paul the Secretary of Treasury in his administration to reign on the Fed if he get elected.
4. Tell Santorum’s supporters to see them and Mr. Santorum in the brokered convention if they work hard for him in the states he will campaign.

There is no chance both Mr. Gingrich and Mr. Santorum can force a brokered convention if they divide the conservative votes between them, in reality, divide delegates equally 3-way among them and Romney in all conservative states and yield all delegates to Romney in more liberal primaries. Please check the numbers here:
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2857828/posts
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2857882/posts
They have to take turn to beat up on Romney to force a brokered convention where they can have a chance to fight another day. Otherwise, it is all over soon as Romney will have more than enough delegates to clinch the nomination.
I can’t stomach my priests having to give out Communion to lesbians or marry homosexuals in church and force my kids to sit there and watch, or to witness them kissing each others in public.
All the sexual promiscuities will take place if Romney nationalizes same-sex marriage as he did in Massachusetts.

Praying continually for G-D to forgive us of our national sins and that He would not turn His face away from our nation. Rather I pray that He would smile on us and raise up the right leader to restore us as One Nation Under G-D. I'm convinced that Newt is that leader. Let G-D arise and let His enemies be scattered.Psalms 68:1

I have been praying and praying for a long while that we would have a righteous candidate, someone after God's own heart.

You all know who my chosen candidate is...

..but while I petition God for him.....most of all I pray

GOD'S WILL BE DONE!.....

God is sovereign...His ways are not my ways....

America was chosen to be GREAT....
..but America corporately has allowed over 55 million deaths of the most innocent...

...We need forgiveness...AND mercy!

Blessed is the Lord our God Creator and King of the Universe!

Not my will Lord but your will be done.

Thank you for giving us a land that has prospered us.

Please give us a cup that we can drink from during this election season. If you could allow the cup that currently resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to pass from our lips, that would be greatly appreciated. And if it is your will to keep another cup like it from entering the same abode, that would be appreciated too.

I pray with all the love in my heart for my brother and sisters who will have to drink from the cup that is given to us.

Father, thank you for giving us your Son. Thank you Jesus for doing the Father's will and sending us the Holy Spirit. And thank you Holy Spirit for guiding our hearts and comforting us.

May your name forever be glorified!

Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord

Amen

Father God, Creator of all mankind, we come before Your Throne and acknowledge that You alone can change the course of our beloved USA .

We have wandered far away from You, forgetting You and have become pleasers of ourselves, selfish, indifferent to Your Word and wayward. Forgive us , I pray. Have Mercy on us oh Almighty God.

I pray today that You will cause a mighty victory in the election. Lord God stay the hand of the enemy and bring victory.

Lord God be with the voters today, and bring victory for rightousness and conservatism. Protect us from those who would take us down the road to ways that are not Your Ways.

In the Precious Name of our Savior Jesus Christ,
Amen

To: Brad's Gramma; All
Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.

Dear Lord, we are learning the lesson of Proverbs 29:2 the hard way. The wicked are ruling our land and your commandments are being broken without a second thought. We need to return to righteous leaders and living ... we want to return to You. We have been created by You with certain inalienable rights .... and we need leaders who recognize this and who are willing to stand up for those rights and who are willing to govern this Nation as it was founded ... one Nation, under God, with Liberty & Justice for all. We beseech you to hear our prayers and give us and those who seek to be our leaders the courage to do Your Will. You alone can see into the hearts of those running for the Presidency of our country and I ask you to give us a leader who will lead this country out of the Godless darkness that we are now in for only You are the Way, the Truth and the Light. We love and praise you dear God and ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord & Saviour ....Amen.
