Prayer - 03

{DAY 3 PRAYER} 

Prayers for the attacker(s) and the assailant’s family. May the Lord give them guidance and strength to come to terms with this act of violence. Forgiveness is given to all who had been involved in this wrongful act, including the murder(s) themselves. This person is fully responsible for their evil act and justice will win in the end. They are fully accountable for themselves and will deal with the consequences of their actions. Their immoral act will never be excused or ever forgotten. May God forgive them (Luke 23:34).

“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” –Ephesians 4:31-32

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Forgiveness doesn’t excuse their wrongful behavior and their evil act. Justice will prevail in the end. Forgiving those who have wronged us prevents their behavior from destroying our hearts.

{DAY 4 PRAYER}

The sad truth is that violence is escalating in our country so much that it is becoming a consistent headline in the media.  May we not grow passive to these wicked things. Instead, may we stand up for our freedoms, may we stand united as Christians, as well as, citizens of the United States of America. We must all come together as ONE.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves
and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin
and will heal their land.” –2 Chronicles 7:14

*** PRAYER ***

Dear Lord,

Today we come together in prayer to seek wisdom and guidance from you. May we all be able to work actively together, as one, in our local communities. God, please free our hearts from anger and bitterness toward one another. Also, may we rid ourselves of any passive behavior, aggression, and apathy. Open our eyes and hearts Lord so that we might display empathy for our neighbors daily. Teach us how to live in peace by exercising generosity and love for one another. If there is any strife of any kind amongst us, we ask that you, God, give us wisdom and self-control to talk out our differences and to confront any issue(s) in a kind and loving manner.

We humble ourselves and seek your wisdom daily. Lord, please protect us from the enemy. Let us be watchful and aware. Have angels watch over us and our families daily. May no harm come to us, as we look to you for refuge. May peace and protection prevail over our towns, schools, businesses, and homes.

Amen.

Dear Lord,

As you gather us together in this life’s journey, we trust in you. Let our Christian faith mature as we exercise Christ’s love for our neighbors. Help us to be strong for each other, as we live amongst each other. Let us live out the “Golden Rule” which you had taught us in the Book of Matthew. Let us exhibit respect and kindness to our fellow neighbors always. May we never lose hope in each other. Lord, give us patience and strength as we walk the Christian faith daily.

Amen.

{DAY 7 PRAYER}

Prayer for our Nation.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He choose for His inheritance.” Psalms. 33:12

In 1952, President Harry Truman, signed a bill into law, making the National Day of Prayer for America an annual event on the first Thursday of May, encouraging millions across our nation to unite together to pray.

Need I say this? Please don’t wait for this Thursday in May to come each year. Our country, our citizens, our communities, you and I, you and your family need to hold steadfast in the power of prayer daily. PRAY DAILY.

May peace be with you and your family.
May this cloud of self-distruction be removed from our nation.
