30 Days of Prayer - Day 24
Daniel 9 : 4 - 7 (This was Daniel's Prayer for his Nation)
I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed:
"O Lord, you are a great and awesome God! You always fulfill your covenant and keep your promises of unfailing love to those who love you and obey your commands. But we have sinned and done wrong. We have rebelled against you and scorned your commands and regulations . We have refused to listen to your servants the prophets, who spoke on your authority to our kings and princes and ancestors and to all the people of the land.
Verse 7 - Lord, you are right ; but as you see, our faces are covered with shame.This is true of all of us, including the people of Judah and Jerusalem , and all Israel, scattered near and far, wherever you have driven us because of our disloyalty to you. Skipping over to verse 9 But the Lord our God is merciful and forgiving , even though we have rebelled against him. Verse 12 You have kept your word and done to us and our rulers exactly as you warned . Never has there been such a disaster as happened in Jerusalem..
As you read the Word of God -- Does this not sound familiar today? We are living for ourselves, and rebelling against God as they did all throughout history , only to end up displaced or destroyed ! He has given each of us ample opportunity; to return to Him and repent through His Son, Jesus Christ. How long will He wait for those of us who continue to walk in rebellion ? This is a question- no one on earth can answer. (Only God Himself!) And that being said, "I am so grateful He is a patient Father (God)..
What must happen before one decides to wake up? Some of us seem to enjoy pushing the limit! I know I did, and don't like to admit it, but its true! I guess to some extent-- I thought in my youthfulness- I was invincible . Glad those days are over!!!! I know the only way for me not to fall back into old habits is- to consistently stay in God's Word, and to be persistent in prayer. As you repent through Jesus Christ and accept His forgiveness, and continue to read God's Word and pray ; you begin much quicker to repent and slower to anger. You really are a NEW creation in Christ Jesus! Praise God!!!
Lord God, Father, and Creator of All things, I come to You on behalf of our nation and surrounding nations, that every eye may be opened to Your righteousness and just ways. That we may no longer walk in darkness but be surrounded by Your glorious light. May our leader and the leader to come-- be righteous and just in all of his or her decisions. May they return this nation back over to You. We know as we pray to You ; we must confess our sins- before Your Son, Jesus Christ, acknowledging Him, to be the Son of God. We must surrender self, and ask for You God, to reveal Your will for each of us. I pray each will have listening ears , to hear Your mighty voice and to be prompted to obey and rejoice in your calling for their life.
I pray Lord Jesus, that there may be a worldwide repentance and forgiveness and love for You. Please continue to show us Your mercy as we come on bended knee with sorrowful repentance O'Lord. Thank You Jesus! Show each of us how to become more like You. (Christ like) Open our hearts with unyielding love to those who hate us and believe that we are against them. For You Father, Abba, God, are what is True, Righteous, Just, Loving, Forgiving, Compassionate, and Kind. And as Christian , we are taught to be the same. (Loving, forgiving, non- judgmental, kind, slow to anger, and compassionate.) For a Father awaits for his rebellious child in patience and love. Thank You Father God, for Your unbelievable patience for me and Your people. For Your love is unyielding and non-comparable to anything here on earth.
Lord God, I pray for all those who are sick, persecuted, addicted, poor, oppressed, abused, mentally ill, lonely, divorced , full of fear and anxiety and those who don't know who they are in You. Father, please bring healing to the sick, and comfort them today. I pray You bring those who are being persecuted home, and comfort to their bodies, and mind. I lift each captor up and pray you change their heart and mind, and forgive them Father. And I also lift the rest of those who are hurting Lord God, and ask You, to bring finances, comfort, peace, and joy. Removing every addiction and affliction, to their bodies and mind. That You may replace their sadness with hope. I pray against all mental illness and oppression against Your people. Thank You Father God. As You know Lord, I have not touched on every person or circumstance going on in the lives of Your people, but I do pray for healing over the entire Body of Christ. Thank You Father, God. We love You! I pray for all theses things to come to pass, In Jesus Holy Name, We pray Amen!!!
Moving Forward With You
Healthy Body, Healthy Mind, Healthy Spiritually!
May God protect you and those you love! Have a blessed day!!!
