Worrying about your situation changes nothing. Prayer changes the pray-er.
PSALM 102:18 Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the LORD.
ISAIAH 33:22—The Three Branches of good governance:
For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; it is He who will save us.
(Three branches of government—judicial, legislative, executive)
Galatians 6:9 -10 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good.
Hebrews 4:14-16 Let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it.
Romans 8;28 (Because) … we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all He has done. 7 If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Isaiah 55:8 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. 9 "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
2CH 20:15 …This is what the LORD says to you: `Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's. … 17 You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm... Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. …the LORD will be with you.' "
Ephesians 6:10-13, NIV Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground.
Your Word blesses us and we turn to You for wisdom and guidance for the votes that will take place this month—elections and legislation. Our country is turning a dangerous corner that will wreak havoc on millions of Americans and also the world. America has been blessed by You because of the hard work and sacrifice of our Founding Fathers. We confess that over the years many of us became complacent and apathetic—things were going good and we didn’t take a thorough look at our legislators or the laws that were being passed.
Until Now. A line has been crossed, and millions of Americans are now taking a stand for truth.
So we confess to you our weakness, our sin and our needs, collectively and individually. Our legislators neither represent us nor listen to their citizens; they represent special interests. The laws they propose are not Constitutional, and they seem intent on robbing this current and many future generations of our wealth which has benefited millions throughout the world. We ask that the current proposal for health care be voted down in the House and Senate in Washington DC. We need tort reform, competition for health insurance across state lines, medical savings accounts and a huge reduction in fraud. We don’t need government mandates that strangle jobs, innovation and raise taxes.
We ask that You confuse the plans of those legislators who operate behind closed doors in secret. We ask that all bad laws to be withdrawn or voted down. We ask that proposals to benefit Americans will actually be considered and voted into law, rather than be rejected in committee. We ask that Godly men and women make decisions to run for office at every level—from village to county to state to federal positions. We ask for honest elections, reduction in fraud, and that worthy candidates win elections. We ask that babies be protected in the womb. We cling to Your standard—one man and one woman constitute marriage and we accept no counterfeit. Lord, all of our religious liberties come from you, and we ask that faith in Jesus Christ does not become a crime, but a movement of revival that overtakes America. We celebrate our right to free speech and free press—may there be no hindrance in these rights.
All of our rights are blessings from You. We praise You for the Founders and their faith in You which led to blessing America and the world. Keep us focused first on You for wisdom and guidance. Give us strength and commitment to carry out the task that You have reserved for each of us individually. And may we follow through on Your will to return America to her blessed status in the world today.
In Jesus Name—Amen
