PRAYING FOR GOD’S PEACE OVER OUR FAMILIES AND OUR NATION:
SCRIPTURES: Romans 15:33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
Romans 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
Romans 15:5 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
THOUGHT: Our world and our nation are filled with turmoil, fear and strife at this time. The nation is divided on so many issues and many are taking things into their own hands without respect for the impact on their neighbors. Everyday the news recites a litany of horror stories that repeat themselves over and over. There seems to be no solution and it is all causing an increase in stress and anxiety for the average person.
The God who created us is Love, Peace, Joy and Hope. Turn to Him in faith, trusting and obeying Him and see that He will protect and preserve you through the present crisis.
PRAYER: LORD, it appears that our leaders are seeking solutions from everywhere but the source from where all true wisdom flows. We pray for an intervention from heaven upon the hearts of those persons who make laws and major decisions in this nation. Bring them back to You and to Your Wisdom and plan for this country. In Jesus’ Name.
LORD, we repent and renounce our wandering as a nation and continue to intercede for an intervention in the course of events to bring this nation back to You and to the issues You care about. Please give this nation hope, love, joy and peace. 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!
