Government

 

As citizens of the United States, we are priviledged to participate in the legislative process through our vote.  As believers in Jesus Christ, we have another way to participate - through prayer!

Eph 3:10 tells us that "His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms.."

God's church, His people are the legal voice on earth to speak God's will.  In this section, you will find prayer alerts and guides to prompt you as you pray for our local, state and federal government.  Take time to listen for God's voice, to know His will.  Then, decree it to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms.  If you are speaking God's Will,,,,it will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free. Amen!'
With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire, so that we once again can be called 'One nation under God!'

The 1st Day of Prayer

The First National Proclamation of Thanksgiving was given by the Continental Congress in 1777 from its temporary location in York, Pennsylvania, while the British occupied the national capital at Philadelphia. Let it be a reminder to us that our government has historically turned to God in times of need.

Delegate Samuel Adams created the first draft. Congress then adapted this final version:

FOR AS MUCH as it is the indispensable Duty of all Men to adore the superintending Providence of Almighty God; to acknowledge with Gratitude their Obligation to him for Benefits received, and to implore such farther Blessings as they stand in Need of: And it having pleased him in his abundant Mercy, not only to continue to us the innumerable Bounties of his common Providence; but also to smile upon us in the Prosecution of a just and necessary War, for the Defense and Establishment of our unalienable Rights and Liberties; particularly in that he hath been pleased, in so great a Measure, to prosper the Means used for the Support of our Troops, and to crown our Arms with most signal success:

Pray For Those In Authority

Posted in Government

God has been really pressing me for about 6-8 weeks about how we view Authority.  We love to think we are under proper submission to authority but then it presses us to do what we don't want to do and we think we have the right to run but the reality is that authority is not authority until it tells us to do what we would not ordinarily do of our own accord.  That is where the rubber meets the road.

Bosses receive our bad mouth either directly or indirectly, parents do as well, not to mention civil leaders such as our President.  This is where God has been pressing me.  Do I give them the respect they are due or do I voice my opinion in ways that are less than flattering?  I am not saying that we can not disagree but do we do so in a humble manner?  Humility is the true test.  We can obey but if we are not humble in our hearts while doing so we miss an opportunity to release true honor and respect.

Almighty God,
You are our Mighty Fortress,
Our refuge and the God in whom we place our trust.
As our nation faces great distress and uncertainty, we ask Your Holy Spirit to fall afresh
upon Your people —convict us of sin and inflame within us a passion to pray for our land
and its people.
