Blessings to you all! This Thursday is National Prayer Day and I encourage you all to participate. It won’t take up much of your time. President Bush has issued an official proclamation. He is asking all Americans to: keep mindful in prayer the families and victims of Virginia Tech and to pray for our Armed Forces.
Dr. Charles Swindoll is one the spokespersons and he leaves this daily devotional for you:
|2007 Prayer for Our Nation|
Almighty God, we pause to reflect on Your character as we seek wisdom for such a time as this.
In these unsafe days,
You remain all-powerful and able to protect;
In these uncertain times,
You remain all-knowing, leading us aright;
In the unprecedented events we’re facing,
You remain absolutely sovereign.
Our times are in Your hands.
Therefore, our dependence on You, is total, not partial
. . . our need for Your forgiveness is constant
. . . our gratitude for Your grace is profound
. . . our love for You is deep.
We ask that You guard and guide our President
and all who serve the people of these United States.
May uncompromising integrity mark their lives.
We also ask that You unite us as truly “one nation,
under God.” May genuine humility return to our ranks.
And may that blend of integrity and humility
heal our land.
In our Lord’s name we pray,
There is also an Online prayer rally. Please view the side panel on this Blog for the link.
You are encouraged to count your Blessings. All is well.
