A prayer for Peace
Today, I’ve been reading about the many riots and protesters in several cities across our nation. I’m also reading they may be supported and possibly paid by groups such as moveon and BLM. This is not right and I know of no one personally who would participate in a violent riot of any kind. This is also a holiday to remember and honor the veterans of our country. They put their lives on the line for us and they deserve to be remembered. Mr. Trump continues to work on his transition and new cabinet positons. These are the things I pray about today.
Lord, I do come again to You today lifting up my beloved country, the United States of America. However, there are many people across our nation angry and fearful and showing it in very unacceptable ways. I lift up these people to You, those of Your children who are sincerely angry and fearful, I pray You will send Your Holy Spirit to convict them of the truth of Your will for our nation and that You are always with those who call You Lord and Your Son their Savior. I pray they will receive comfort and assurance that You will never leave or forsake them and that You are in control of everything – nothing happens unless Your allow it. I pray also for those who live in darkness and are not followers of Your son. I pray they will be burdened with the weight of their sins and of their need for You in their lives. I pray they will not be able to relax until they repent of their sins and turn to You for forgiveness and accept the free gift of salvation through Your son Jesus. I pray You will send Your children to them to help them know about You and Your gift of mercy and salvation.
Lord, I pray You will bring all those who serve evil and are involved in the harmful rioting to light so that the public is aware that this is an attack from evil and corrupt people within our nation. I pray that those who hate peace and our nation will be stopped and brought to justice through Your divine intervention.
I pray for our policemen and women and other law enforcement men and women who are in harms way because of these evil instigated riots and protests. I pray You will send Your mighty angels to protect them from all harm and plots aimed at them. I pray for their families and others who are innocent – that they and their businesses will not be harmed by this evil violence in our land.
I pray You will begin to destroy the corrupt men and women, groups and businesses that are in existence across our nation – that their support and finances will dry up and they will collapse from lack of funds and supporters. I pray You will disrupt each new scheme to harm our nation and our elected officials and that the organizers themselves will be found out and punished for their evil deeds.
I pray for Your protection again for Donald Trump, Mike Pence and their families and those who are working with them to put together a new administration. I pray You will guide and direct each word, meeting and plan made, so that a smooth transition will be made. I pray especially today that You will bless and guide Mr. Trump and his new administration in planning ways to help our veterans and our wounded warriors to receive proper medical care and help in living in our land with their wounds – both physical and mental. I pray for their spiritual health also, that they will receive love and help from Your children throughout this land and that each one will come to know Your son as Lord of their lives.
I pray again for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, for You to open their eyes to Your existence and Your love for them even now, and that they will turn from their wicked ways and beliefs and that they will seek Your forgiveness and the great salvation You offer them through Your son Jesus. I pray their lives will be so miserable and uncomfortable that they will seek out You and Your precious Word to be part of their lives.
I pray for each congressman and woman who serve all across our land, that those who claim to follow You will renew their faith and their trust in You and seek forgiveness and mercy for any sins and corrupt deeds and that they will turn to You and serve and worship You in spirit and in truth. And for those who do not know You, I pray they will feel truly convicted by Your Holy Spirit of their need for You in their lives and that they will seek You out and seek out Your forgiveness and mercy and become new followers of You. I pray that our nation will become truly “One Nation Under God” and that God is You.
Lord, lastly I pray for Your protection of our land and our peoples from our enemies, both without and within who serve that ancient evil one who wanders this earth seeking to main, kill and destroy.
Lord, please forgive me of my sins and shortcomings and show me where I need to change my deeds and thoughts so that I can honor You in my life. I ask all of these things in the name of Jesus, my Savior. Amen.
