Dearest Heavenly Father;
Sovereign Lord, King of Kings we praise You and exalt your most holiest of Names! You are ever worthy of our praise and we magnify You in all things. Even though You are our Father and we Your children, we worship You in all that we try to do. Heavenly Father, help us to be the shining example of You to the rest of the world and those we come into contact with.
Lord, we know beyond all shadow of doubt that You are ALWAYS in control no matter the situation and no matter how things might look to us. You are and always have been seated on Your Heavenly Throne able to see all the comings and goings of mankind. There is NOTHING that escapes Your eyes, for You even see into the heart of mankind and are able to see the hidden things there that man thinks to plan in his own limited “wisdom.”
We know dearest Lord, that you see the hearts and motives of Your righteous children and those who have chosen to pursue their own paths. There is nothing in the heart of man that is or can be hidden. Father, this is a great assurance and blessing to those of us who call You Father! There is a joy and a peace, that Your written Word says passes all understanding, when we rely and trust WHOLLY in You! As we continue to walk daily in trusting You in all things, continue to bathe and flood us with that joy and peace and help us to ever be pleasing to You as we do walk this journey in faith.
Father, You see the apprehension that some of Your children have in not knowing all the details of the things happening around us. We might not know all the ins and outs of the political world system or the natural world order filled with unknown and hidden dangers. Forgive each and everyone of us for our doubts and fear, for we know that Your Word tells us that You are NOT the author of fear, but rather You provide Your children, with power, love unconditional and a Godly and SOUND mind, one that is wise in Godly wisdom from on high. You give us the strength and the power to be righteous, not in our own selves, but in the Spirit that You have so graciously endowed each of Your children with.
Your Holy Spirit is our counselor and comforter, but even more so, He is our guide and leads us into ALL truth, even truth that we may not be aware of in the circumstances that panic the rest of the world! All we have to do is listen and hear, open our eyes and see. Help us by Your Holy Spirit TO see and TO hear Your Words, despite what the world and the enemy of our souls would like us to hear.
Your glorious and life-giving Word tells us that You, Your Holy Spirit within us is greater than ANY thing, ANY threat, ANY circumstance that the world or the enemy can throw at us! Your Word has proven itself to us and to past generations over and over again, without fail. We as Your children are without excuse when it comes to fully trusting in You and Your Word and the love that You have so graciously and mercifully shown to us time and time again. Today is no different. Today is nothing greater than we have faced in the past, but rather today is another day in which to “practice” walking in trust and faith in Your ability to keep us. You have promised and have delivered more than once, to never leave us NOR to ever forsake us. Even today, Your Words hold true in blessed promise!
Bless our Brothers and Sisters no matter the stage they are in their faith. Increase their faith, and be with them as they walk through the storms that life throws at them, with You ever by their side. Let them sense and be aware of Your loving presence through all things. Let their joy be full and complete in You!
Forgive us for our sins, hidden AND acknowledged, known and unknown with which we might have offended You AND our Brothers and Sisters. We open our hearts with love towards others in forgiveness of hurts and slights that they may or may not have knowingly committed against us. Help us with Your unconditional love to love each other unconditionally, NOT expecting anything in return that in faith, again, we might be pleasing to You.
Your Word tells us that You have ordered our paths; You KNOW what is in store for our futures though we do not. That causes us to trust in YOU and NOT in our own knowledge and since You have prepared our paths in advance, help us to see each step with our eyes of faith that as Your Word states, You can delight in us.
Dearest Heavenly Father, we may not know what your plan is for the rest of today, for tomorrow or the weeks to come. We do not know if this is the beginning of judgement on a nation and country that has turned its back on You, be we DO know that You love Your righteous children and will shelter them under Your “wings.” We pray and intercede for our nation, for our leaders, for those in the spotlight who have the ears of the people of this once blessed nation and we pray that their eyes would be opened spiritually by whatever means necessary so that they have the ability to choose for themselves which way they will go so that they are without excuse. We pray for revival, true, spiritual, Holy Spirit anointed revival that will change hearts and lives eternally.
Father, Your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, Savior and Redeemer has always directed our sight to You and has shown us Who the Father is. We know that He IS the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and End of all things. We continue to look towards You for grace and mercy and in so dong cry out, “Come quickly, Lord Jesus!” Amen and AMEN in Jesus’ Exalted and most Precious Name!
