You ask us to care for widows and orphans and also to have compassion and mercy on the needy. Let us look to You, Jesus as the example. Jesus I pray that over the next few years we as American Christians can help more of our people who silently live at or below the poverty line. Stir up a fire in Your church for those who don’t get to eat regularly. For those who don’t have a roof over their heads. For the ones who don’t have sufficient clothing. Show these groups to us Lord and compell us to be Your hands and feet so that we can help these people and, also show them the salvation that is waiting for them. Thank You Father that You gave us Jesus to model our lives after. I ask that you forgive us our sins, both known and unknown. Cleanse us of the stain of sin by the blood of Jesus. Equip us for the harvest Lord. In Jesus name, AMEN.
Father God, I thank You that I was born in the USA. I have a great love for my country. You sent those who were fighting for religious freedom and against high taxes to establish a country You could be proud of. Help us Lord to turn back to You! Let this nation all repent and ask for forgiveness. America has become defiled in every way Lord. Send a rushing wind to cleanse the lawlessness and corruption from our government. Let our leaders bow the knee only to You Almighty God. Strip the big tech companies of the power they hold over our representatives, congressman, clergy, judges, and Presidential offices. Bring the media mountain down to dust for misleading and lying to the American people and the world. Send a host of angels to protect those who still look to You Lord for wisdom and guidance. Let new people who love You be elected into offices that are for the people and not for themselves. Help is make America great again Jesus. Shine Your glory on the corrupt and evil dealings of this establishment and bring them all to justice. I pray Jesus that Holy Spirit wash over law makers and lead them in all wisdom. We desire a better country while we are still occupying this land. For we know and hope for our future place that is in heaven. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city. Hebrews 11:15-16 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/heb.11.15-16.ESV
We praise you for children. No child is placed in a mother’s womb by coincidence. You know every life, and in your mastery knit us into the unique threads of humanity we are purposed to be with Your great love before we breathed our first breath of earthly air. Father, mold us into mothers that reflect 1Corinthians 13:4-7 love. We want to honor You in the way we love our children. Help us to be patient, when the hours are long, the wait seems impossible, and our strength fails us. Fill us with kindness, when our urge to criticize overwhelms us.
Father, create in us a delight for your truth, and a will to worship You in seasons of suffering and moments of triumphant accomplishment. As You protect us, enable us to protect our children, Father. Help us to build a bridge of trust with our children, and to pave a pathway to hope for them to find and embrace You, their Father and Creator. Father, motherhood is so overwhelmingly hard. What we cannot find the strength to do for ourselves, let us persevere so our children may see Your love for them reflected in our lives. We pray today, Father, for You to keep our children physically safe, and guard their hearts and minds. May their friendships be godly and God-centered, their relationships and marriages built on kindness and upon seeking You first.
Bless them to hear Your voice above all others, and find their purpose and passions early in life. May they never stop pursuing You and the talents and gifts You have given them. Go before us and forgive our mistakes as we do our best to raise our children, Father. Thank you for blessing us with the privilege to be such an intricate part of Your creation. Help us be at peace with what we cannot understand, and driven to work hard with what we know.
Today we praise You for home. Bless this space we share with the people you’ve placed around us. Father, you always forgive us, and never love us less. Help us to embrace that mentality when we walk through the doors to our home daily. As Colossians 3:13 reminds, help us to“bear with each other and forgive one another.” Families share four walls that witness each of us in a way the rest of the world does not. Create a safe haven for us at home, Father. Ignite in us the ability to embrace and encourage each other, flaws and good qualities alike. May we recognize each other’s strengths more than we are bothered by weaknesses.
Father, we ask Your forgiveness today for the moments we have lost our patience in the past and to come in the future. Grow us in wisdom to be mindful of our words. Convict us to serve each other and put our selfish pursuits and agendas aside. You have forgiven us, so we too can extend forgiveness to each other every day.
Thank you for giving us a support system, and a small army to pursue Your righteousness. Bless our home to be a welcoming example of Your love. Bless all who walk through our doors, and us as we exit them and walk out into the world each day. May the love we absorb at home be enough to embolden and sustain us as we walk throughout days at school, work, and through the pursuit of our passions and hobbies. Help us to be outward facing people, noticing those You place in our paths and looking for ways to love them.
Keep our home safe. Protect it from intruders and invaders who wish harm upon us. Bless our home with Your presence, Lord Jesus. Guard our home against the evil that plots to derail and confuse us. Give us the discernment to see and recognize attacks for what they are, and the strength of faith to turn from temptation when it rears its ugly head. Keep us pure in mind, body and spirit, Father. Let our home be a welcome refuge of peace for all who visit.
