Day 29 praying for election, 11 to go.

Praying girlLift us up that we may boldly proclaim Your truth each and every day.  

Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. (Matthew 21:21-22)

Oh God! There is no god but You.  You are the Almighty! You are the living and the eternal creator of all.  Father, all things in the heavens and on earth are Yours. There is no one that can intercede in You presence except as You permit.  You, Oh God, know what is before or after or behind us all. Your throne extends over the heavens and the earth, and You are the Most High, the Supreme.

Whoever rejects evil and believes in You, Oh God has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that never breaks.  Lord, You hear and know all things. You, Lord are the protector of those who have faith; from the depth of darkness, You will lead us forth into light. For those who reject faith the patrons are the evil forces that prevail.  We praise You; We praise You, Oh God.

Almighty God, please forgive us.  Our country has sinned against you, Lord. Instead of focusing on You, Lord we focus on ourselves and a life of greed and pride.  We have become a corrupt nation, Lord. No longer is prayer allowed in our schools. No longer is Sunday honored as a day of worship where no work is done. In a nation where we are supposed to have freedom of religion it is coming to the point where Christians are persecuted for following You, for speaking of You and for trying to lead lost souls to You. We have nearly lost all that our forefathers fought and lost lives for.  Lord help us.  Heal our land dear Lord.  We need your help, Lord. We need your healing hand. Forgive this nation, Lord, for the many sins committed each day. Guide this country and our election for President as we seek to turn this country in the right direction. And that direction is towards you, Lord.

Lord we give thanks. Father, we know that our bounty did not come from Washington DC.  It came and it comes from You, Oh God alone.  Our founding fathers understood that perfectly, Lord.  Because of our heritage and faith in You we can still worship at a church, synagogue, or mosque of our choosing every day or once a week or not at all. Please protect that freedom dear God.  Thank you that we can still express ourselves openly in open forums such as blogs, meetings, rallies, and other venues.  Thank you that we can still own our own firearms and use them for sport or for protection. Thank you that we can still own property and are free to move about the country.  Thank you that we can still look at one another and know that each of us are among the most generous people on earth. Thank you that we can all be proud of our young men and women in the military and thank You, God for them. Thank you that while almost 1 in 5 of us are without jobs, there are friends, relatives and neighbors in our communities ready to help out the less fortunate.  Thank you, Lord that by all standards, we live in a country where all are equal. We have many things too great to mention Lord, we are so thankful for Your grace.

Oh, God, please strengthen our faith.  Protect our nation and our people. Guide the results of the election in 11 days. Help us to never doubt Your Word or Your faithfulness.  Lift us up, Father, that we may boldly proclaim Your truth each and every day. Let us be sensitive to the leading of Your Spirit and never forget that, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13). Dear Lord, we praise You, Your mercies are new every morning and Your faithfulness is great.  Father, we bring these prayers to you through Jesus Christ, Amen.
