Christian's Choice

Recommended Posts

praying

Dear God, our father in Heaven and King of Kings,

 

Put the choice before each one of your people in America. Help those who call themselves Christians to see clearly the choices that you have graciously put before us: to choose a culture that values life or a culture that avoids consequences, to choose a culture that honors the God of Creation or a culture that utterly rejects God's design and accepts man's twisted design of same sex marriage. Put before us a clarity of what we are choosing. Lord, I pray that the consequences of our choices would come, either as a blessing on our nation and our people, a reawakening to your goodness, mercy and design, or as a curse.

 

But Lord , if our nation chooses the curse, let those who love you wholy and live wholy for you be blessed with your protection. Hide us from this curse. Let us be a light in dark days. Let us find shelter from man's hatred of the light that we shine. If our nation rejects your truth, I pray that your name would be glorified by the faithful. Send us witnesses that cannot be quieted who will shine the light on the sin of our nation and call for our repentence.

 

I pray for the security of the covenant of Jesus on our children. How can we bear to live if our children lose the truth of the Gospel? I pray that if our nation chooses the curse, that it won't fall on our children! How can I bear that?

 

In Jesus name

amen

Thank you, Whatevergrows. I was thinking of where to post a prayer I was thinking about last night. I'll just post it here with yours.

 

***************************************

 

I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed:

"O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with all who love him and obey his commands, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.

 

"Lord, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame—the men of Judah and people of Jerusalem and all Israel, both near and far, in all the countries where you have scattered us because of our unfaithfulness to you. O LORD, we and our kings, our princes and our fathers are covered with shame because we have sinned against you. The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him; we have not obeyed the LORD our God or kept the laws he gave us through his servants the prophets. All Israel has transgressed your law and turned away, refusing to obey you.

"Therefore the curses and sworn judgments written in the Law of Moses, the servant of God, have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against you. You have fulfilled the words spoken against us and against our rulers by bringing upon us great disaster. Under the whole heaven nothing has ever been done like what has been done to Jerusalem. Just as it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us, yet we have not sought the favor of the LORD our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to your truth. The LORD did not hesitate to bring the disaster upon us, for the LORD our God is righteous in everything he does; yet we have not obeyed him.

 

"Now, O Lord our God, who brought your people out of Egypt with a mighty hand and who made for yourself a name that endures to this day, we have sinned, we have done wrong. O Lord, in keeping with all your righteous acts, turn away your anger and your wrath from Jerusalem, your city, your holy hill. Our sins and the iniquities of our fathers have made Jerusalem and your people an object of scorn to all those around us.

 

"Now, our God, hear the prayers and petitions of your servant. For your sake, O Lord, look with favor on your desolate sanctuary. Give ear, O God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act! For your sake, O my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name." (Daniel 9)

 

With a humble heart, I pray the prayer of Daniel, Father. I know of your goodness and mercy. I know that you bless where blessing is not deserved. I also know that you will go to all lengths to save and restore. Be merciful to us, Father. And don't forget your servants. Remember us and sustain us with Your words and Your presence.

Lord God Almighty, Creator of the Heavens and Earth, we come before You to Praise You for Your Goodness. Your Lovingkindness is Everlasting. Your Mercy endures forever. We join together in these prayers of repentance for ourselves, our families and our nation. We have willfully and foolishly turned away from You and our leaders have twisted the arm of Israel to bribe her into giving away Your land. We have been complicit in murdering babies by allowing our leaders and politicians to remain in office. We have turned a cold heart to the poor and homeless without shedding a tear or giving of ourselves to bring comfort.

 

And yet, because of Who YOU are, we dare ask for Mercy. We ask for Mercy because of Your Faithfulness. Keep all of us under Your wings of protection. Hide us in the very folds of Your garments to be released as Your army of Light in Your day for Your purposes and Your harvest. Let us always remember that even Your judgments are redemptive in nature. Purify Your Bride in every single way that is necessary Lord to bring a Holy Spotless Bride to You. You alone are Worthy. May the Lord of the Harvest be magnified and Glorified. Let whatever happens be done by Your hand of mercy for Your purposes. Amen.

Well Father, here we are again, realizing how very much we need you and turning to you with eyes widened with anticipation. I'm going to keep looking at you Abba, when I can't bear to look at the mess we're finding ourselves in. Please forgive us for our complacency, for taking so many freedoms for granted that the rest of the world can only dream of.

 

I love You and I trust You. Help me to stay focused and peaceful, for I know you do not want me to have a spirit of fear. Help me to make wise decisions with any resources that you have put at my disposal. Do not let me speak hasty words and appear foolish. Please give me the strength to let Your light shine through me into the darkness of the days to come.

 

Open the eyes of the blinded Father. Let them clearly understand what and who they are voting into office as well as the many ramifications that could result. Help us to calmly face tomorrow and the days after tomorrow as we rest assured in Your Omniscience, Omnipotence and Omnipresence.

 

This is too heavy a burden for me to carry, so I gladly give it to You. It is not too heavy for You. You are able, You are more than able.

 

Please, once again, take the many things that have been done with evil intention and turn them for good, as only You can do.

 

One last thing Lord, please protect the children, the innocents, the elderly, the unclaimed, the unloved, the unwanted. I know in Your word you said that You are the Father of the fatherless, the wife of the husbandless, the protector of the downcast. Thank You for that Father, thank You for Your goodness, Your lovingkindness, Your Mercies that never end, Your Amazing Grace, Your plan for Atonement, and Your Willingness to Repair & Restore.

 

Amein and Amein

So be it
