Fourth of July Prayer 2018



Dear Reader,
I ask you to pray in agreement.
Happy Independence Day 2018.
~~~~~

Father God, 
I thank you for the privilege of living in the
greatest nation in the world.
I know that Jerusalem, Israel
is your chosen capital for the world.
But you have blessed the United States
in a way that no other country in history has been blessed.

We were founded on freedom.
We were founded on Biblical principals.
We were founded on equality.

Father God, 
I thank you that you have given us a true
American president. 

President Donald Trump 
is doing everything he can to make America great again.
He is also bringing you, God, back into America.
I am thankful for that.

I ask you to bless him, his family, 
Vice-President Pence and his family,
and those who are trying to truly do what is best for 
our country and for our Christian faith.

Lord, You have been so merciful to our country.

We, as a country, have enemies.
The most dangerous enemies are those
within our own borders.
The most dangerous enemies are those
who choose to destroy our 
faith, our freedom, our social infrastructure,
our borders, our values, our work ethics, 
our marriages, our families, 
and especially our children.

There are powers that are using media, television, 
movies, magazines etc. to destroy America.
They are promoting division of every kind,
hatred, bigotry, racism, 
violence, disrespect, and every evil they can 
imagine.

Father God, 
please forgive those who have chosen
to hurt us all for their own perceived good.
Turn them from their wicked ways.
May your Holy Spirit lead them into truth
and repentance.

Father God,
please forgive us.
Forgive us who call ourselves Christians.
Forgive us for not truly following Jesus.

Father God, 
we are your people.
May each one of us who call you Father,
who call ourselves Christians,
turn from our wicked ways.
We have called on your name,
but we must repent.
We must look different than the world.

Father, forgive us for we have sinned.
Holy Spirit, please speak to each of us
individually.
Jesus, thank you for your salvation.

"For God so loved the world
that he gave his only begotten son
so that whosoever believes in Him
shall have eternal life."
John 3:16

Help us Lord!

God bless America!

  7. Amen, well put.
    It was easy to pray, harder to live it. I've become so used to watching, listening, etc things that I shouldn't, it is just second nature.
    You remind me that things aren't "just so" and there are things that I need to change in my own life & heart. Then concentrate on changing other things!
    Thanks for reminding me again, Laurie

  9. We are to pray for these things. God puts leaders in charge of us and He guides us. Our country needs prayer and I couldn't think of a more fitting thing to do on the 4th than pray. Thank you Laura for sharing at Home Sweet Home, I will feature this week.

Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
