SUNDAY PRAYER

Dear, Father, God,

I humbly come before your throne with prayers for our nation.  There seems to be so much hatred and violence in the hearts of our people.  We can place the blame on this and that, but the truth is, we are all guilty and have fallen short of what you expect of us.  Hate was never part of your original plan.  You created this world to be perfect in every way.

But there was one who thought he was wiser, smarter and more powerful than you.  When he entered your perfectly created domain, sin also came with him.  Today we see the results of that original sin in the minds of all people, in the hearts of those who aren’t getting their way, in the actions of those whose minds have been twisted by the evil that permeates our civilization.

There is no one here we can trust.  Even our churches, schools and workplaces are at risk of becoming victim to terroristic attacks.  You are the only One to look to when times get out of hand like they are today.  You, who thought nothing of sacrificing your own blood for the forgiveness of sin, are the only answer when things seem hopeless.

We as a nation, need to turn back to you for help.  We can’t overcome the evil alone.  Even though the devil was defeated when Christ conquered sin and death, he still is allowed to roam the earth until the end of time.  We continue to need your protection from the madness around us.  We pray for your intervention in a world seemingly falling to the pit of hell.

I know that you love us, even when we are unlovable.  I implore you to plant the seeds of love back into the hearts of men.  Help us to work together, even when we’re not always united in our thinking.  Someone once said, “what the world needs now is love.”  This is so true, but we must remember that it has always been available to us through you.  Draw us to you. Cleanse the evil from a world that has forgotten or given up on you.  Only you can bring love to the world again, as you did when you first sent your Son to us.

I pray this in His holy name.  Come again, Lord, Jesus.  AMEN!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Living less than 25 miles from the Tree of Life, I agree and join you in this prayer. We have abandoned God so that we don’t offend people that do not believe. Yet, if they do not believe, why did they become offended? In hindsight, we can see Satan at play. And as Julie was writing not long ago about not being silent, we let this happen without a whimper. Now there is no moral high ground to turn to when violence reigns.
