INTERCESSION FOR A RESURGENCE OF LOVE, HONOR & FAITH IN GOD’S WORD:
SCRIPTURES: Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Psalm 119:11 Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Hebrews 4:12 For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Psalm 119:89 For ever, O LORD, thy Word is settled in heaven.
THOUGHT: The founders of this land had faith in God and in his Word. They saw the failings of Israel and the resulting punishments. As they prepared to enter this land, they made covenant with God that they would serve Him and honor and obey his Word. America rose to become the leading world nation in many respects.
Over the two centuries that have passed many other ideologies and faiths have risen up and captured the minds of the people, just like in the times of Israel.
We firmly believe that our nation must return to its roots of faith in God and His Word or we will continue to face problems in many areas of our society, leading to its utter ruin.
PRAYER: LORD, we pray for a turn about of the conscience of our nation and a return to You and to the knowledge of and value of Your Word. We pray that You will continue to raise up men and women who will champion Your Word and Your causes in the seven mountains or culture-shaping areas of influence over society—media, government, education, economy, family, religion, and celebration (arts and entertainment). In Jesus’ Name.
Turn us around LORD, that we as a nation turn back to the source from which we came. Let it be a Sovereign work of Your own hand to turn this nation around. In Jesus’ Name. AMEN!
