In chapel the other day, PRAYER came up as a topic of discussion. Mizael, our oldest student, was surprised when I mentioned that some people have a goal of praying for long periods of time. The next day, four of us sat together and each prayed. How quickly time goes when you pray with a group.
This week, the USA is celebrating the National Day of Prayer
Mizael and I are signed up for three time slots on the Presidential Prayer Team webpage.
And I have prepared a handout/prayer guide from the HOW TO PRAY FOR AMERICA webpage. If you are reading this, you KNOW American needs prayer.
JOIN US! Maybe your prayer life will find a new vigor as you join with others to pray for our country. Only GOD can turn the divisions we are seeing into DIVINE APPOINTMENTS for His Grace.
2021 NATIONAL PRAYER FOR AMERICA
Lord, we look up and see the billions of stars
You created, and we praise You. We look
around and see the billions of people You
created in Your image; uniquely, fearfully,
wonderfully, and we thank You. Wrap us in Your
Spirit and unite us in Your family, Lord.
Thank You for loving us first. In Your love for the
whole world, You sent Your Son to save us.
Jesus, in You alone we have abundant and
everlasting life. Thank you for teaching and
leading us to love and live, fruitful, and faithful.
In Your life, death, resurrection, and ascension
You are our Lord, our love, our life, and our
liberty. You came to “bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to captives and
freedom to prisoners.” You have freed us from
the penalty and shame of our sin; free to live
life as You designed and Your destiny for our Nation.
Spirit search us, convict us, as we repent for
our sin and the sins of America. Please cleanse,
fill, and send us. We rejoice, knowing that Your
forgiveness makes us acceptable and effective
vessels for Your love, life and liberty in our
family, church, education, workplace, military,
government, art, entertainment, and media.
We pray that America will be united in love to
serve You with all our hearts, all our ways, and
all of our days. Unite us to pray, love; to live and
walk by the Spirit. Conform and transform us
as we pray and proclaim, “Now the Lord is the
Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
We pray this is the name of Jesus, Amen.
