Praying For Our Nation
What does praying for our nation look like? I'll get to that in a bit. Why would I ask you to pray for our nation? Because as many empires and nations have gone before us- we too have fallen into the same pattern of greed and pride. Some believing they have the solution to a broken and diverse society. Adding and removing what they believe will help us succeed . The removal of God is one of the biggest atrocities today. We can Not continue down a road of rebellion and expect God to continue to bless us .
We live in a society that now embraces sin like the 'Norm", really ?? Is this really what is good for our nation? In my opinion, Absolutely Not!
Many bringing acceptance to all kinds of sin, in my opinion it is sickening. We must repent and return to what is righteous and just. We can Not continue down this road and expect for God to continue to bless a nation who loves sin and oppresses the poor. Do you want to live in a carefree society that removes prayer , and the very foundation in which this country was built on? Do you truly believe we are not in danger as past empires or nations? I pray you don't !
Before I go any further , I want you to know I have done my share in being part of the problem and not the solution. Keeping quiet and just closing my eyes to what is not good. I am not perfect and none of us are and will Never be!
This is not a call to put anyone down or smack a label on them! This is my prayer of an awakened spiritual life. That you may no longer be dead in your transgressions, but alive spiritually!
Nevertheless, I want you to know I have done drugs in my past and have done many things I am Not proud of. Probably to many to count. At times in the past you may have found me walking around hopeless and just going with the flow. Why?Let me open up and be honest- Its not because I didn't know of God and His ways, ( I grew up with a Mom who very much loved the Lord) My Dad knew of God, but didn't bring it up as my mom did by reading her Bible and praying) it was because I was ignorant, lost and prideful. I still wanted to have what I thought was fun. Past hurt and disappointments lead me to putting up many walls. Which of course lead me into drug use , and drinking and having a carefree attitude. Eventually I realized that only God himself could heal me and my past.That being said, God sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross to forgive me and you! This is great news!! Right?
It has given me hope and brought a purpose into my once lost past .
Now I believe society and our upbringing , as well as what we may have contributed ourself, has a played a huge part in the role of how we all ended up here. And that being said, you my friend- can Overcome anything with God who Loves you and forgives you for EVERYTHING! Everything You or I have Ever done! Praise Jesus! This forgiveness does not give us a free pass to willingly continue to walk in sin or rebellion, but it does give us freedom to live and break free from bondage and brings us eternal life.
Keep this in mind- you are going to still sin because we live in a broken world (Nobody is perfect) but you will not love the things you once loved and will not continue down the path of destruction. God's forgiveness brings us hope , purpose and eternal life. Will you repent as I did? Asking Jesus to come into your heart and forgive you, To change you, as only He can. From the inside out! I truly can't see why anyone wouldn't want this free gift. It frees us up from the bondage that we put ourselves in!
Please accept this free gift and pray for our nation with me!
My Simple Prayer..
Lord Jesus , may we return back to You and Your righteous and loving ways. May You shine your glorious light upon us that we may see again what is beautiful and right in the eyes of our Father God. May we love you and love your ways, which are righteous and just. Lead us away from temptation and the things that bring You no glory and harm to us and others. May we have a loving and forgiving heart like Yours. Rejoicing and walking in love. Please remove us from this bondage of sin that we seem to love. Thank you Jesus.
I pray for our current leader and the one yet to come, that he or she would be righteous and just as You are! May each of us be readers and doers of your beautiful and righteous loving word O' God. Please have mercy upon your people as we return back to You and repent and once again love You and love what you love. May your will be done as it is in Heaven. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen!
Healthy Body, Healthy Mind, Healthy Spiritually!
Moving Forward With You
God bles you and this nation!
