Patriots' Prayers for the Week of 4-2-2017
What is wrong with America goes well beyond politics & economics. It is a spiritual sickness which infects the USA. No politician, no election, no piece of legislation, will cure spiritual sickness. We must appeal to a Higher Authority for that kind of healing. Please join me in praying for America.
Prayer for America (short version)*
God, we have sinned and deserve the just punishment for our sins as a nation who has rejected You in every possible way. And yet, Lord, I cry out for mercy for myself, my family, and this nation. Forgive us, and help us to turn oonce again to You. In the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
*This short version of the Prayer for America is intended to be easy to memorize and use as a daily (or nightly) prayer for those who might want to do so.
Have mercy, O Lord, upon the whole clergy of Your Church in America, and grant them the wisdom, courage, and strength needed to boldly preach Your Word and do Your Will during these perilous times.
Grant, O Lord, blessings and mercies to all current and former members of our armed forces. Save them, protect them, and keep them safe.
Bless, O Lord, and have mercy on those who serve as police officers, fire fighters, paramedics, and other first responders. Keep them safe as they perform their often dangerous duties.
Please read the Word of God this week!
Reading the Bible on a regular basis is something everyone needs to do. Not just occasionally. Not just once a week. Daily reading of God’s Word is essential for building a solid relationship with our Father in Heaven. If you are not doing so already, please make daily Bible reading a part of your life. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of Bible reading plans you can follow. Your personal Bible may contain a daily reading plan. Several reading plans can be found at the Bible Gateway website. You can ask your pastor or priest for one. Or simply design your own reading plan, as random or as organized as you wish. Whatever plan you choose, please start reading the Bible every single day.
