Day 25 praying for election, 15 to go.

WomanpraySpeak to our spirits with words of wisdom and direction.

And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. (Luke 11:1)

Father, we praise You dear Lord.  We bow before Your Holiness.  Lord, You are the greatest. You are our creator. Father, we worship You the most high.

Lord we confess our sins to You.  Please forgive us, Oh God.  Forgive our nation and our people for what we have done. We come to You with open hearts and ask that You speak to our spirits and our souls with words of wisdom and direction, that we may know how You desire for us to pray.

Lord, we thank You for Your grace. We thank You for Your abundance of love.  We thank You once again that we were born in America. We thank You for our freedom and protection of days past. We pray, Lord that You will protect us and provide for us in days future.

Lord, help Your humble servants to speak words of praise and adoration, for You are the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Teach us, Lord, that we may know You and the power of Your resurrection. Fill us with Your presence and forgive our shortcomings.  Lead us, Oh God, to a higher place, that You might be lifted up and draw all people and nations to You. Father help us, we so need Your help, Oh God.

Lord, we pray for this upcoming election.  We know Father that You are in control and will appoint or allow a person to be in that position.  What we do, individually, is of little consequence, Lord, when Your mighty hand of control and direction waves the future toward us. We pray, Father, the one who lives Your principles the most will be appointed in 15 days.  We pray for Your divine protection over our nation.

Lord, we pray these things to Jesus Christ who taught His disciples to pray:  Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Praying4Give Ear to Our Words O’LORD.

Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.  Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. (Psalm 5:1-3)

Father we adore you.  “You are holy, Lord, the only God, and Your deeds are wonderful.   You are strong.  You are great.  You are the Most High.  You are Almighty.  You, Holy Father are King of heaven and earth. You are Three and One, Lord God, all Good. You are Good, all Good, supreme Good, Lord God, living and true. You are love. You are wisdom.  You are humility.  You are endurance.  You are rest. You are peace. You are joy and gladness. You are justice and moderation.  You are all our riches, and You suffice for us.  You are beauty.  You are gentleness. You are our protector.  You are our guardian and defender. You are our courage.  You are our haven and our hope. You are our faith, our great consolation.  You are our eternal life, Great and Wonderful Lord, God Almighty and Merciful Savior.”[1]

We give thanks this day O’God for your love and for the many, many blessings you have given our land and our people.  Our greatness has come from Your grace, Lord. We beg You, O’Lord, to hear our supplications.  Hear our prayers dear Lord!  Let us come to you each day with our hearts full of joy, for You are our Most High God and everything we have comes from you.

Dear God, forgive our nation and our people for the destruction of millions of babies through abortion. Forgive us for the sexual immorality that is common in entertainment and so many relationships. For the tolerance and promotion of sexual perversion. Please forgive us Father for the dependency on material things and failure to trust God for physical, economic, and national security.  We pray you forgive us for the disregard of God’s standards for marriage and family living. We come humbly and in repentance to Lord.

Father in heaven we pray for Our President. We pray that the heart of our President will be open and sensitive to the Lord. We ask you, O’God to give him wisdom for the decisions he must make. We ask O’God for you to protect him from physical harm and spiritual attack. We ask you, Lord to protect his family from all harm.  For the election in 22 days, Father, we ask for your divine intervention that the winner of the election would be hand-picked by You.  We ask for your protection of our nation and we ask for a great leader.

We pray for our Nation, O’God.  We pray for the Holy Spirit to convict the people of our nation of sin. We ask Him to soften all our hearts and make them open to You, Lord.  We pray that You will release those taken captive by Satan and give sight to those who have been spiritually blinded. We ask for a harvest of souls.  We ask for You to bring revival to the hearts and lives of the saved.  We ask You, Father, to protect us from physical attack.  Please, O’God, give a spirit of patience and calm throughout the land.

We pray for our churches dear Lord.  We ask You Lord, to move Your churches to boldly proclaim the gospel to the unsaved. To help us trust Him and His sovereign control over the world. To fill us with compassion for those who are suffering because of recent events. To strengthen the hearts of God’s people, giving courage and persistence.  To help Your children experience You peace that passes all understanding, that it would guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.  We pray that the churches will be characterized by deep repentance and a return to the Lord. We pray that church leaders may be courageous, wise, and faithful in their proclamation and counsel.

Bless us, Father, that we might bless others.  Let us always look to You for every provision. Let us each be an open vessel filled with Your wisdom, that others might know Your saving grace.  Father we have come to You in obedience and humility to seek your face. We have asked for much this morning believing You will hear, provide and heal our land.  We ask all through Jesus Christ, AMEN.

Day 9 of Prayer for Election, 31 to go

praying_hands3powerO’Lord, Let Us Delight Ourselves In You.

The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. (Proverbs 15:8)  Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. (Psalm 37:4)

Dear Lord, You are glorious and all powerful, the almighty King.  Father, we are each here in our place where we choose to worship you.  We are in awe at the privilege.  We look up at Your Face and the radiance of Your presence is beyond description. You are real and You are in this place accepting our worship and prayer. O Lord, great and awesome God, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. We have not listened to Your word and we have not followed your commands.  Lord, you are righteous,  please forgive us and our nation for our unfaithfulness to you. O LORD, we are sorry Father, for we have sinned against you.

Dear Lord, Your Word says that if we delight ourselves in You, You will give us the desires of our hearts.  Please direct our path Lord, both our individual path and the path of our nation and our leaders.  Father we pray that Your will and Your way becomes our delight.  Lord, fill us with Your spirit, Your power, and Your presence.  Father, bind us together as a people of one nation under God.  Lord, we pray that each day You will be the glory for all the goodness and blessings that come our way.

We close this prayer by asking for You to shower Your blessings on those with whom we serve.  We pray for our national election and for our local government.  We pray they will draw closer to You and draw upon Your almighty presence. We pray You would renew their commitment to serve by revealing Your desires to them. We pray they will have a season of a fresh, new awareness of  Your beauty and Your ways, and that they will find they have a heart of worship that exceeds anything they ever thought possible.  It is all about You, dear Lord and it is You we worship.  You alone are worthy.  You alone are deserving of our praises.

To You be all the honor and glory, now and for all the rest of our days.  AMEN.

Prayer3Pray for the United States of America

“If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.” (John 15:7-8)

Dear Lord we lift your holy name on high.  Lord it is you alone that possess life within.  You alone are the true source of everlasting, abundant life.  We praise you, dear God.

Father we confess to you our lack of fruit-bearing.  We as a nation and as a people have been self –absorbed and distracted with selfish activities that bring only temporal value.  Forgive us Lord.

We thank you Father for your love and your life and we pray today that we may glorify you Lord.  You are the true vine. Live through us that we might bear fruit.  Father, even though we are over 2,000 years removed from the night you uttered those words, we know your work still marches forth.  We know, Lord, You are still working to accomplish Your work and Your will in the world today.  Work through us, Lord.

Help our nation to turn our hearts back to You and Your Word so the United States will bear the fruit of your righteousness and be set above all other nations.  Dear Lord, may the fruit we produce be honoring to you and may we bear fruit in abundance for and by you.  Father we draw our strength from You.  Strengthen us today, Lord.  Strengthen us with the power of Your Holy Spirit.  Help us Father, as we strive to abide in You and continue in faith that You will do more for us than ever imagined.

God bless the United States of America.

We ask all these things through Jesus Christ.


Prayer Day 6 for the Election, 34 more to go


“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28: 19-20)

Thank you for this day Lord.  We praise your Holy name.  You are the God of all blessings, the source of all life and the giver of all grace.  You are the eternal, loving God.

Father, in Matthew you commanded us to make disciples of all nations and we need to begin with ourselves. Lord, please transform our lives and help us to be more like you.  Forgive us Lord for our transgressions. You have promised to always be with us and we thank you.  Lead us Lord and protect us, protect our country.

Help us to turn our hearts to you with sincerity and courageously spread your good news.  Help us to take your message to the ends of the earth.  Father we trust in You to fill us and use us for without You we can do nothing.  Lord we ask that you place within us your vision for our nation. Open our eyes, dear Lord, so that we may see. Dear Father please help our nation (our people) to make the right choices. Surround us with your love, fill us with your grace, and strengthen us for Your service.

For all our blessings, we give you thanks and through Jesus Christ we pray.


Heal Our Land, 40 Days To Pray


We have an extremely important election this November that needs our attention.  I believe in the power of prayer and if ever our nation needed us to intercede with our creator now is the timeI am asking you to join me in 40 days of focused prayer for our nation and our leaders. I am asking all to pray for the healing of our land. Details below…

“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 will forgive their sin and heal their land”, (2 Chronicles 7:14) There is an absolutely beautiful and appropriate song we sing at church that was taken from this verse and with the name of the title of this post.  I am sharing the words with you here.

Heal Our Land by Robin Brooks and Tom Brooks

Lord heal our land, Father heal our land, Hear our cry, And turn our nation back to You
Lord heal our land, Hear us O Lord and heal our land; Forgive our sin, And heal our broken land.

If my people will humble themselves, Humble themselves and pray,
If they seek My face and humble themselves, And turn from their wicked ways
I will hear from heaven, And forgive their sin, I will hear from heaven, And heal their land.

Lord we bow our knee we humble ourselves, Humble ourselves and pray,
Lord we seek Your face, We humble ourselves, And turn from our wicked ways
Father in Your mercy forgive our sin, Father in Your mercy come heal our land.

The Power of Prayer: Right from the beginning of our nation great things have happened due to God’s almighty power and grace toward us.  Our land was sustained and protected through the power of prayer.  When the early documents were drafted and signed those great men did it prayerfully.  We triumphed over many days of darkness by the power of prayer.  Through diligent and intentional prayer we have brought the presence of God amongst us.  The possibilities are endless when we involve the power of prayer.  With God, all things are possible.  You and me, we all have an awesome power given to us by God Almighty.  As the verse and song says, “When we humbly seek His face through prayer our Lord will act on our behalf and will work His will for us.  When we pray for our leaders and for the direction of our nation we can have God’s power to change the direction our nation moves toward.

Please join me in a daily prayer beginning Friday, September 28 and culminating on election-day, Tuesday, November 6, 2012.  This is the most critical election in many years for our nation.  Join me as we pray for the United States of   America, for our leaders and those to be elected to shape the future of our country.  Let us claim the promise within 2 Chronicles 7:14. Let’s come together in humility and call upon His name.
