Hidden Treasures

The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

Prayer for America

"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice:
but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn."
Proverbs 29:1

GOD OF OUR FATHERS
Daniel C. Roberts

God of our fathers, whose almighty hand
Leads forth in beauty all the starry band
Of shining worlds in splendor through the skies,
Our grateful songs before Thy throne arise.

Thy love divine hath led us in the past,
In this free land by Thee our lot is cast;
Be Thou our ruler, guardian, guide and stay,
Thy Word our law, Thy paths our chosen way.

From war's alarms, from deadly pestilence,
Be Thy strong arm our eversure defense;
Thy true religion in our heart increase,
Thy bounteous goodness nourish us in peace.

Refresh Thy people on their toilsome way,
Lead us from night to everlasting day;
Fill all our lives with love and grace divine,
And glory, laud, and praise be ever Thine!

Heavenly Father,

We thank you that we can call you our Father because we come to you through the merits of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, who died and rose again to save us from our sins.

Thank you, Father, that you invite us to come before Your throne of mercy with all our burdens that we may find grace to help in time of need.

We thank You that America was founded by men who honored You and Your Word. We thank you for the way You have led us through difficult times when our nation was almost destroyed by hatred and division from the Civil War to our present time.

We thank you for brave men and women who have fought and sacrificed their lives to defeat the enemies of freedom. Almighty God, as you fought on behalf of your people in Bible times, we look to you now to strengthen us in our war against devilish terrorism. Bless the people of Iraq and other nations of the Middle East with Your peace and with the freedom of self-government. Rid this world of tyrants now as you helped us rid the world of Hitler and other tyrants of the past. Thank you for helping us rid Iraq of Saddam Hussein. Bring peace to the Middle East. By Your might, bring the reign of terrorism to an end that the world may know that You are God and beside You there is no other. Speed the day when our service men and women may return home safely to their families.

We pray for our President as he leads our nation and as he appoints judges and other office holders. May there be cooperation in Congress and may good men and women be confirmed to their offices. Remove from office those who have godless agendas and rebel against Your Word.

We pray for the godless of our nation who want nothing to do with You or Your Word and who bitterly hate those who love You. Cause them to come to the end of themselves and fall on their faces before You and see themselves as Your enemies, headed for eternal destruction. Cause them to see that their only hope is Jesus Christ. Father, allow whatever it takes to bring people to see their desperate need of You.

We rejoice that You are still sovereign and one day Jesus will return to this earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We thank You that we who trust and love you are on the winning side; that soon we will be in Your presence, free of sin and war and terrorism.

We offer these requests with thanksgiving and praise to You, our almighty , all wise and loving Heavenly Father through the merits and in the name of our Saviour Jesus Christ. AMEN
