Word of the Day... May 2, 2013


A Prayer For America The Beautiful…

Today I lift up the United States of America to You Lord. I thank you for your goodness and love and ask that You intercede for America as it teeters on disaster. The people of America have turned their backs on you and have put their idols in your place. Celebrities, rock stars,   athletes and the love of money are just a few of them. They have disregarded Your laws and have promoted sexual perversion, the destruction of millions of babies through abortion, sexual immorality is rampant in so many relationships and there is a blatant disregard of God's standards for marriage and family living. The dependency on material things and failure to trust God for physical, economic, and national security.

 I pray for our President and ask that his heart be open and sensitive to the Lord Jesus.  I pray that the Lord give him wisdom for all of the decisions that he must make as our leader.  I pray God’s protection over him and his wife and daughters so that no harm will come to them.

 I pray for all of our leaders in the Congress and Senate.  I ask the Lord to work in the hearts of those who do not know Him that they would recognize their need to repent and trust Jesus Christ for salvation. I pray that the Lord will provide them with protection and spiritual strength.

I also lift up our warriors in the military.  I pray that you provide spiritual strength and protection for all of them as they face war and conflict. I pray that the persecution of the Christians in the military will stop and they will have the freedom to worship the Lord Jesus as they see fit.

I ask the Lord to convict the people of this nation of their sin. I ask Him to soften all our hearts and make them open to the Lord. So that God will release those taken captive by Satan and give sight to those who have been spiritually blinded.  I pray that He will bring a great revival to the hearts and lives of the people of this country and they will turn to Jesus Christ by the thousands.  I pray for the Lords protection over this country and ask that our Father to protect us from physical attack.  I pray that He will give us a spirit of patience and calm throughout the land.

I pray For Our Churches that they will get on fire for the Lord and boldly preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone.  That the Lord will help us trust Him and His sovereign control over the world. I pray that He will fill us with compassion for those who are suffering because of recent events and I ask the Lord to strengthen the hearts of God's people, giving courage and persistence. I pray that all of His children experience His peace that passes all understanding, that it would guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

I pray that the promise given in 2 Chronicles 7:14 is threefold: the Lord will hear our cry, forgive our sins, and heal our land. I believe that if enough people cry out to the Lord, He will restore our country and make us into a nation that honors Him again. I challenge all Americans to kneel before the Lord and cry out to Him on behalf of the United States. Ask God to send another Great Awakening to revive America so that we can once again become the great nation that once honored God and was blessed By Him for it.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen and Amen…  God bless you all!!!
