Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
Our Father in Heaven,
This day we humble ourselves and ask your forgiveness for our sins against You
alone. We are weak and fallen creatures needing Your divine touch of restoration.
We have engaged in combat against an enemy instead of following your direction
to love one another.
More of us are now awakening to the fact that we are fighting against ourselves.
These are our brothers and sisters with whom we have a momentary disagreement
over an issue or a candidate. Lord, empower us with Your Spirit to fulfill Your will
for each of us.
Forgive us for failing to believe Your Word affirming that You and You alone raise
up kings and remove kings. Forgive us for not trusting Your promise that You
indeed work ALL things together for good for those who love You and are called
according to Your purposes.
Father, bring each of us to our knees with sorrow for offending You. Grace us with
Your Spirit that we may trust again. We live to please you now here on earth and
forever more in Paradise with You face to face.
Bless our patriots, our military and all our families. Bless those now serving in
elected office throughout our land. Bless all of the men and women running for
elected office this year. And grant us Your strength that we may walk worthy before
You and our fellow man; that observers will be compelled to ask, why we are so
different from others in the political marketplace to which You have called everyone
sharing in this prayer.
In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

So many times we Christians hear about the word faith and what we may think it is as instructed by Jesus to his apostles, but just how does it related to human interactions today? I submit the following. In Hebrews 11:1 we learn that faith…Continue
Mother's Day gave me the opportunity to appreciate my mother, applaud my wife for the most excellent job she has done as a mother and admire my daughter as she is experiencing motherhood with a two year old. Last…Continue
