CONTINUED PRAYER FOR AMERICA
God answered the prayers of Christian people like myself and installed Donald Trump into the Oval Office over the cheating and lying of Hillary Clinton, the democrat political machine, and their propaganda arm they call the mainstream media. I am thankful for those answered prayers and continue to ask God to bless this nation. One of the churches I belong to, CedarPoint Church in Claremore, Oklahoma is having 8 weeks of prayer, Monday through Friday, until Easter. We are praying for the nation, our political figures, the military, law enforcement, firefighters, the body of churches as the “Bride of Christ”, our church in particular, and for individuals that we know who need prayer for personal issues. I continue my own prayer here hoping that people will embrace the idea and join in as they have time and inspiration. We can never pray too often and God will help us as we seek Him.
Father God, I come to you again, giving you praise for Your holiness and Your mercy toward Your people. I thank You for this nation, the second greatest gift you have given the world, only eclipsed by Your son, Jesus, sacrificing His life for our eternal salvation. You were with our founding fathers as they sought Your face in their quest for liberty and a nation that would proclaim Your glory to all mankind. I know that the last 50 years or so have been a time of the nation turning away from You as Israel did many times in the Old Testament. I ask Your forgiveness and mercy upon us as many of us are doing our best to try to turn the nation around. I recognize that we cannot do it by our own power but that You can so I ask again for You to show mercy on the USA and restore the nation to the greatness You gave our founders. Thank You for allowing Donald Trump and Mike Pence to win the election last November and I ask You to guide them and grant them favor as they honor You from the highest elected offices in the nation. I thank You also that You gave Melania Trump the courage to open that rally in Florida by reciting “The Lord’s Prayer” so unashamedly, out loud and in public, despite knowing she would be attacked for doing so. That act of defiance against political correctness to honor You brought joy to my heart and I know it brought joy to Your heart also. Please continue to strengthen, protect, and guide them so they will continue to give You the honor and respect You so richly deserve. I also ask that You would give all Christians in the nation the courage to stand behind the Trump/Pence administration and let them know we are with them. In addition, I pray that You will protect our brave military people and extricate them from the wars in far off lands. Those who denigrate faith, prayer, and Your holy name do not speak for the majority of American citizens and I implore You to punish them individually rather than punish the nation as a whole. I realize that there have been times in the past when I have been part of the problem, seeking what I desired rather than seeking You and Your Kingdom first. I again offer my humble apologies and know that I was forgiven the first time I apologized and asked for forgiveness. I also ask forgiveness for those who ridicule and mock me for my stand, calling me a “self-righteous hypocrite” because they aren’t wise enough to realize that I have no self-righteousness, that I am righteous only through the blood of Jesus that was shed for all mankind. My goal is to honor the sacrifice Jesus made for me and to help restore this nation to You. I ask that You would touch their hearts and enlighten them to my true self, a faithful servant of Jesus. Many in the nation need Jesus but are either too ignorant of it or too arrogant to accept it. I ask that You would have mercy on them and visit them in their dreams to let them know the truth that they refuse to hear from me. I also ask that members of Congress be touched by Your hand and turned away from their pagan and/or treasonous ways. Too many of them choose to ignore Your Word and look only for power and wealth for themselves. Some of them are downright evil but many are merely deceived into thinking that satan’s lies are truth, believing that they are the ultimate authority when they are merely sitting in appointed seats that can be taken away at any time by the Creator of ALL things. I ask You to bless those who do now or will follow Your promptings and ask that those who refuse be removed from office by whatever means You choose. I am appalled at the attitudes of so many who have attained positions of power only to use those positions to either deny or denigrate Your esteemed position in the past and future of the nation. Father, Our nation is in desperate need of Your blessing and “the protection of Divine Providence” more than ever before and I humbly and prayerfully ask for it now in the Name of Jesus of Nazareth, the name above all names.
I have said before and will continue saying that praying and living 2 Chronicles 7:14 is a major key to seeing our nation restored. I urge everyone who reads this to take that verse to heart, learn it, pray it, and live it. In that verse God gives us His promise of how to gain His blessing as He gave His blessings to Israel when the turned from their wicked ways and turned back to Him, and that was long before Jesus came into the world as a human being. I also ask that you will share this everywhere you are able to share it so our voices can be multiplied many times.
I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect
