[Hebrews 13:20-21]I praise YOU Father as the God of peace who by grace gives us every good thing we need so that we can do what pleases You. I praise thee Father for raising Jesus from the dead and for accepting His precious blood as payment for our sins. I pray Father that you continue to work through Jesus Christ Your beloved Son to do the things that PLEASE You. To HIM be glory forever. Amen!

LORD, You are God and we bow to no other. We know that You are holy and that You will judge all sin and transgression. We know that You are longsuffering and merciful and that is for our sakes but we are weary of the wicked, tired of tyrants who rule us instead of serve us. They are haughty and arrogant: they have no fear of You or accountability to You. They think that you do no see the evil they do or hear the arrogant words they speak. Our leaders glorify things that are an abomination to You. They laud same-sex marriage and promote the murder of the innocent unborn. They have taken good laws and perverted them, twisting them to suit their evil ways. LORD we know that You are holy and you do not aid and abet crooked judges–those who make laws that hurt and injure other people like Roe V. Wade. The scripture say that “You will not be allied to a throne that is evil”. The things that our leaders are doing are not inspired by YOU! You have never commanded the sacrifice of innocent babies. Father we know that the days of the wicked are numbered. We know that their diabolical kingdom will not stand. Like Hitler, Stalin and all the tyrants they have proceeded them, they will disappear like a puff of smoke. Even so Father, we pray for justice to return to our land, integrity to the courts and truth to our class rooms. We pray for America to repent of its sins, to acknowledge that You are God and that the unborn are persons made in Your image. Father our survival depends on REVIVAL and YOU and YOU alone can send revival. We may not deserve it but we are in desperate need of it. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!
LORD God almighty, we know that you have the power to save–You are not impotent. We know that you can hear us when we pray. Our problem is not that you cannot hear or save us; our problem is our sin. We growl like an angry bear and moan like a sick dove but we are our own worse enemy. It is our sins that have separated us. Our hands are covered with the blood of the innocent unborn. We not only tell lies, we teach them in our class rooms of higher education. We have become totally untrustworthy, we cannot be trusted. We create chaos, we produce pain, we hatch evil, run to evil and do evil. Our sin is causing massive destruction to our culture and country but we don’t seem to care. We are destroying the future of our children and our children’s children. We do not know the way of peace and we refuse to acknowledge it’s Prince. Justice stands at a distance–truth has fallen like a soldier in battle–Goodness is not recognized or appreciated. We hope for light but all we see is more darkness. Our own sins testify against us. We know we are guilty and we know that we have sinned. The only plea that we can make is for MERCY. LORD God have mercy on us; forgive our sins and heal our land. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!
[Isaiah 33:2-3]LORD, be kind to us. We wait patiently for Your help. Give us strength every morning. Deliver us from the temptation and trouble we face. Your word has planted fear in our hearts: we do not want to go against Your will. Your power causes nations to crumble and fall, so who are we to oppose YOU. You have first claim on our lives: be it unto us according to your will.
[Based on Revelation 19]We praise You Father because all glory, honor, power and salvation belong to YOU! All your judgments are true, right and just. YOU will bring down the world system that operates like a prostitute by corrupting everything that it touches with lust. We praise YOU that one day You will separate us from all those who hate and despise Christ. We long for the day when you bring all of us together who love and adore YOUR SON. We praise YOU God for all those who honor the name of Christ, those who humbly obey His commands and share His good news. We praise YOU that there is none beside You and none above You: You are the LORD God omnipotent, the almighty, the all-powerful One. Father You are greater than any problem and more powerful than sin itself. We rejoice in Your omnipotence and we are happy to give You glory. All glory and praise to the LAMB that was slain, who has cleansed every sin and removed every stain. Hallelujah, You deserve the glory. We rejoice and praise You for choosing us to be the bride of Christ and for providing for us a wedding garment, the precious blood of Christ. Father, we worship and adore YOU, we lay our lives before YOU. LORD Jesus, we worship and adore YOU and lay our crowns before YOU. You are our only sovereign: we need no crown. Glorify Your name in us O KING of kings and LORD of lords.
Father, You and You alone can transform a desert into a garden. You can change a barren land into the plains of Sharon or the forest of Lebanon. Father you can make our weak arms strong again; You can strengthen our knees and replace our confusion with courage. Father make us strong and unafraid; open the eyes of the spiritually blind–help them see Jesus clearly as we see Him. He lived in our behalf a life that was well pleasing to You. He opened the eyes of the blind; He opened the ears of the deaf; and He made the lame to dance like a deer. He gave people hope that had no hope. He gave the mute a song of joy. He is the HOLY HIGHWAY to home and heaven. Only those who humble themselves and believe walk on this road that leads to the land of joy and gladness and it is far, far away from the land of sorrow, sadness and sin. Father, thank YOU for Jesus, our Spring in the desert, the Rose of Sharon; our Savior and Guide.
