Religion Forum threads labeled "Prayer" are closed to debate of any kind.
"Leading our nation through its darkest periods proved to be a nearly unbearable burden on both men, yet each is celebrated. Despite very different upbringings and theological backgrounds, it was a common faith in God that sustained them through the lowest points.
Washington and Lincoln spoke publicly and wrote extensively about their faith and the role of religion in a free society. Ironically, today some attempt to use the Constitution written at a convention over which Washington presided to exorcise all references to faith from the public square, ban the faithful from public office, and relegate religious liberty to the smallest corner of the American mind never to be spoken or lived outside houses of worship. In 1789, Washington addressed the General Committee representing the United Baptist Churches of Virginia, but the prescience of his words speaks to the attacks on religious liberty today:
GEORGE WASHINGTON SAID: "If I could have entertained the slightest apprehension that the Constitution framed by the Convention, where I had the honor to preside, might possibly endanger the religious rights of any ecclesiastical Society certainly I would never have placed my signature to it; I beg you will be persuaded that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against every species of religious persecution."
At the close of the Revolutionary War, George Washington sent a message to every governor: "I now make it my earnest prayer that God would have you, and the State over which you preside, in his holy protection ... that God would most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind, which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without an humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy nation."
During the height of the Civil War in 1863, Abraham Lincoln issued a formal proclamation, creating the first annual National Day of Thanksgiving. That proclamation is focused on to whom Americans should be grateful as opposed to what they should be grateful for:
Lincoln stated: "I do, therefore, invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens ... (it is) announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations are blessed whose God is the Lord. It has seemed to me fit and proper that God should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart and one voice, by the whole American people."
HYMN: Seek Ye First

HYMN: Amazing Grace
Almighty God we praise you for your loving faithfulness to each of us and this nation. We are thankful you have heard our prayers to intervene bringing full acquittal for President Trump to end this amoral impeachment. We continue to pray for your intervention and defense against all our national enemies foreign and domestic: Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but to Thy name we give the glory. We find peace with the knowledge that greater is the Spirit of God within us through Christ, than the evil one who is in the world.”
The political Left thrives on Hate to an extreme degree.
For the past three years, this Evil deep-state that is embedded within our government having attempted a political coup against our nation. The national print and broadcast media knowingly collaborated with the “deep state,” also within the FBI and Justice Department, releasing false narratives from the uncorroborated dossier compiled by the former British spy, Christopher Steele to discredit and discredit President Trump and his Administration. We pray for President Trump and Vice President Pence to continue to be given your strength, mental and spiritual protection. Let them clearly hear your voice of wisdom to guide them in the midst of all political noise. Help them both to stand firm with courage and resolve to govern in their appointed roles.
Preserve our nation. End the corrupt deep-state swamp of foreign and domestic traitors selling their services to the highest bidder for their own personal wealth and prestige.
We pray for justice against these traitors to end their corrupt deep state agenda. Restore the Constitution re-ordering our judicial and legislative governmental systems. End the complicity of national news sources acting as domestic terrorist agents spinning false flags meant to distract, deceive, and disguise Truth from the American public. Recreate our free-press to report truth-filled news with honor and integrity. Give Attorney General Barr supernatural clarity focus through the fog of lies & distortions. Help him discover truth to fact-find and bring to justice all corrupt agencies and individuals.
We ask your wisdom for our government to address the public need to develop medical protocol to address the potential coronavirus pandemic. Protect our military and first responders that put themselves in harms way to defend our nation overseas and at home. Help them address the issues of human and drug trafficking Continue to help complete the border-wall construction for our national security to reinforce the difficult work of the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement [I.C.E.]. in securing the U.S. Border.
Holy God, listen to the cries of those who pray to you. Teach us to choose your blessing of life rather than death in sin so that we might walk blamelessly. Help us share knowledge of your great love that has given us your Son Jesus Christ to save us from our sin. With acts of justice and mercy bring healing to all our wounds; making whole all that is broken; and revealing the knowledge of the power of your great love at work in the world. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Evangelical Women Pray over Trump: Holy Father We Thank You for His Courage
At least a dozen evangelical women prayed over President Donald Trump when he made an unplanned appearance Wednesday at his hotel in Washington, DC.
Holy Father, we thank you so much for this evening. We thank you for this man of God. We thank you for his courage of standing up when others would rather stay seated.
Father, we ask you that you protect him. That you lift him up, that you give him strength and know that he must be tired at times. And we just pray that you give him power like none other. We love him, we hold him up, and we thank you. Amen.
Thank you so much UMCRevMom.
So beautiful. Amazing Grace is my all-time favorite hymn as it is for so many other people. You know, well you probably do, that it was written by a man crossing the Atlantic Ocean from Europe to North America, to the future United States and there was a terrible storm at sea and everyone was afraid they were going to die.
It was kind of like that beautiful play by Shakespeare, Twelfth Night. By the way, if you have not seen it, I highly recommend the film Shakespeare in Love. A beautiful movie.
Anyway thank you so much as always, gathering up all this lovely information I don’t think we can ever thank you enough. Take care love, Julie

Having prayed the complete above prayer out loud, so that it is clear to the “cloud of witnesses” comprising the hosts of Heaven and Hell that we are standing in agreement here, I add the prayer below to these:

PRAYER FOR LEADERS
Lord, we pray that leaders who govern unjustly will make many mistakes in
decisions, especially involving world evangelism (Psalm 109:29);
leaders who despise You will fall from power through improper advice (Psalm 5:10, 19:14);
leaders who are truly searching for understanding will find
knowledge and wisdom in Your word (Proverbs 28:2).
Let the leaders who live in darkness receive a personal message of Your love (Psalm 52:15);
leaders who live in war-torn nations will grow weary of
continual bloodshed (I Kings 5:3-4);
leaders who lead corrupt governments will recognize their evil ways and turn to You (II Chron 33:12-13);
leaders who boast of power will realize that their earthly kingdom was given to them by You (Daniel 2:19-22).
In the Name of Jesus Christ, amen.
From this version of “Warfare Prayers” by Win Worley, booklet #4, page 10, pdf here:
Thank you. Joining in prayer.
Joining all in Prayer.
Thank You, Father, for Your Grace.
Amen to your prayer and your beautiful celebration of Presidents' Day, dear UMCRevMom!
2 Corinthians 10:3-6
3Indeed, we live as human beings,* but we do not wage war according to human standards;* 4for the weapons of our warfare are not merely human,* but they have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments 5and every proud obstacle raised up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to obey Christ. 6We are ready to punish every disobedience when your obedience is complete.
Joining you in prayer, Dear FRiend, in Jesus Holy Name, Amen.
Joining all in prayer, that the enemies within will be defeated, that this nation will be revived, One Nation Under God.
Amen to all. Please hear us O Lord!
