Prayer for America

Prayer for America

Father, in the name of Jesus, and according to your Word, we pray for those in authority in our nation. We lift up President Donald Trump, his family, his staff and cabinet members. Let Your Word cling to them and let them not depart from your plan. Strengthen them with mighty power by your Spirit to stand against wickedness, lies and deception.

Guide President Trump’s decisions; let Your light shine upon his path and show him the path of reversal for every evil way. Continually surround him with godly men and women who impart wise counsel to him.

Cause the way of the wicked to be set to confusion and come to nothing. Deliver us from the traps and snares the enemy has laid for us, and let the wicked be caught in their own devises and be brought to shame. We take authority over the plots and plans of the enemy against this nation. Let prideful and lying lips be silenced in Jesus’ name. Slanderers will not be established in America.Continue reading

Your Authority Has Not Changed

Your Authority Has Not Changed

It is difficult to have the right words to say after deliberate acts of evil. It is heartbreaking to see so many people hurt. We must remember that God is the God of peace, comfort, and hope. As Paul reminds us, God is the “God of all comfort, who comforts and encourages us in every trouble.” I pray that those who have been affected by the violence in Orlando will have that become a reality for them.

May the believers, in particular, find the attributes of the Holy Spirit becoming real to them; He is our Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener, and Standby. We need our family in Christ to have the strength to stand up and be light in the middle of that dark situation!Continue reading

Your Role as a Watchman

Your Role as a Watchman

“And the lookout shouted, “Day after day, my lord, I stand on the watchtower; every night I stay at my post.” (Isaiah 21:8)

“I’ve posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem. Day and night they keep at it, praying, calling out, reminding God to remember. They are to give him no peace until he does what he said, until he makes Jerusalem famous as the City of Praise.” (Isaiah 62:6-7, Msg.)

 

In Old Testament times, watchmen were stationed on top of the walls of a city. They would stand atop those walls and look out into the distance to see what is coming.

If an enemy came and shot a fiery dart, the watchman had a bucket of water on hand to pour over the fire so it didn’t burn a hole in the wall. If the watchman saw an army coming, he would give a warning. If he saw friends coming bearing gifts, he would alert the gatekeepers to let them in.

The watchman’s responsibility was to guard the goods of the city.Continue reading
