Pray For AMERICA

Prayer comes naturally to Christians. It’s like talking to a good friend–someone you love and you know loves you. When Christians want to talk to God we do it through prayer.

Talking to God regarding personal troubles, family situations, or job related problems is natural because these situations involve us. We all have some sort of issue close to our heart that needs fixed: complicated personal decisions, family situations which create tension, job issues that affect our future or someone we dearly love. So we pray. We ask for God’s guidance, deliverance, and strength.

Praying for personal issues close to our hearts is usually what most people pray about. We do this because we need help, and we believe God cares for our needs. But are you remembering to pray for issues wider than your intimate world?

AMERICA – Meditate On The Mighty Word Of God

The Bible tells us we should meditate on God’s law, but what does it mean to meditate? Often, people think of meditation as chanting, an act of trying to relax their body and mind. Chanting is popular in some forms of yoga. But meditation also has another meaning. Not to simply relax–but to focus. To focus one’s mind on one specific thing; thinking deeply about that topic for a period of time while trying to come to an understanding of its true meaning.

America, we could certainly benefit from some deeper thinking of the Bible in Washington D.C. right now.

Scripture frequently mentions meditating on the teachings and laws of God. As we think more qualitative thoughts, and reflect on what we believe His word signifies, we can better understand the importance of living righteously and following the truth of the lessons God shares with us in the Bible.

AMERICA – 5 Bible Verses God Cares For You

Do you feel life is a burden and not a pleasure? Are family, friends, work, and even your government not giviing you the delight or peace of mind and protection that you believe they should offer? I’ve felt that way before. I’ve felt let down and that personal and social circumstances are out of control.

The good news is, we don’t have to feel that way. God did not create us to be in distress. He creates through His love; giving ability to us to receive His love.

When you love something, you don’t turn your back on it. You nurture it. You remain close, never abandoning your creation. You draw near and care for it.

God Bless America

In His omniscient, all-knowing power (Psalm 139:1-24), God knew the problems citizens of a nation would face. In accordance with His all-loving nature, God gave instruction on how to live with justice for all.

Deuteronomy 16:18-20 Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes in every town the LORD your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly. Do not pervert justice or show partiality. Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the innocent. Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Please, take this opportunity to ask God to change negative hearts of all leaders corrupting our nation; that those leaders may humble themselves, see their corruption, then take steps to correct any deceit. Pray these leaders may decide to fully accept and invite Jesus into their lives as their Lord and savior.

Also pray for any specific law for justice you believe needs to be passed, or any injustice you believe needs corrected in America.

God desires us to rely on His glory to save us, not ourselves. 

Humbleness pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and come to a knowledge of His truth.


ARE YOU A FOLLOWER OF JESUS?

If you’re not certain you’ve ever invited Jesus into your heart, now is the perfect time. Pray this sinner’s prayer found at Gotquestions.com. Through Jesus you will receive the hope that He alone offers.

“God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided for my forgiveness. I trust in Jesus and Jesus alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen!”

AMERICA – God Hears and Listens

Do you know God is omnipresent? He is everywhere at the same time. How awesome is God? This means when we pray to Him from anywhere He hears us. My husband and I have trouble hearing each other when we are in the same room, but not God. Even in the darkest places, places we would never tell our best friend that we have wandered into, God is there and He hears and listens.

Hearing and listening are two separate abilities. Hearing is the perception of sound through the ear canal while listening takes skill. Listening processes what is being said. I guess the truth is my husband and I do hear each other, we just don’t process the words.

But not God. God listens intently. In fact He desires us to pray to Him anytime we choose; communing with God strengthens our relationship with Him.

America, we need to commune with God everyday so that our relationship with Him grows stronger.

AMERICA – Offer God His Glory

God, the magnificent Creator of all things seen and unseen, is everlasting holy glory. God’s glory is not a seeable or touchable object like shiny gold. His glory is more precious than any weight of gold. God’s glory is who He is; His glory is His character. And His character is unmatched, no man will ever replicate God’s character–not even esteemed kings or preachers.

God’s glory is His faithfulness, His truthfulness, the solidity of His Word. God’s glory is the same today as it was yesterday and as it will be tomorrow.

Everything God made, and He made everything, contains His glory. The heavens, animals, plants…they all contain His glory and were created by His glory.

So the beautiful thing for America is: God created America for His glory.

AMERICA – Only God Can Save Our Nation

There comes a time in the affairs of men when they must prepare to defend, not their homes alone, but the tenets of faith and humanity on which their churches, their governments, and their very civilization are founded.

The defense of religion, of democracy, and of good faith among nations is all the same fight. To save one we must now make up our minds to save all.” President Franklin D. Roosevelt

President Roosevelt included those words in his State of the Union address to Congress in 1939, two years before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Clearly, Roosevelt understood the importance of keeping God in high esteem within the family and within governments.

So why does it seem our government has abandoned God?

AMERICA–Stand Up For Christian Freedom

Whenever and wherever a Christian service takes place in America we have laws stating all are welcome to attend. How wonderful it is to have this freedom. The freedom to openly worship God and hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.

No matter if it’s Lutheran, Methodist, Pentecostal, Catholic, Episcopalian, Baptist or any other Christian denomination, I know I’m free to openly carry my Bible into the building of any church in any state and praise the LORD!

Freedom to openly worship in church in America is important to Christians, but open worship has two parts. True open worship means we also, as followers of Christ, have freedom to live the biblical teachings we learn in church. This means allowing Christians to openly live Godly lives; to make family decisions, educational choices, businesses dealings and health options based on what God’s Word tells us.

America Needs Revival

Let’s put the righteousness of God back into America.

Are you discouraged with what’s happening in Washington, D.C.? I know I am. Not only do new national laws reflect departure from God, but American family values continue shifting farther left. More and more young people whose parents worked for a living now want everything for free, this means less and less young people will learn their self worth instilled in them by God.

If you expect to escape life’s chaos at home–don’t bother turning on your family TV. Most television programs created for family viewing are a disgrace; expect violence and vulgarity with no shame. And social media? When no one is actually face-to-face with the persons they disagree with, politeness and morals are not part of the conversation. That’s just a sampling of the bad news in life right now.

But thankfully, the Good News still reigns–Jesus is alive and waiting for our call!

OBITUARY of Jesus the Christ

Easter is the holiest of celebrated holidays to Christian believers. It is the resurrection of Jesus our savior—The One who was crucified then came back to life three days later—that is the core of Christianity.

Through Jesus’ resurrection mankind receives salvation—deliverance from sin. We come to understand this truth through Bible study, attention to biblical sermons, and heartfelt prayer. God’s word truly is a love letter to us.

The Bible is a love letter. From its beginning, God promises that though we sin and fall short of His glory, He provides a redeemer.
