I suffered through the news last night with great anxiety about the future of our Country. I believe this coming election, the general one, will be the most important in our recent history. It isn’t just the economy, stupid… No, this time the sanctity of human life is up for grabs along with the Bill of Rights. We are just one Supreme Court Justice away from a potential constitutional crisis.
So, I need to make a list of prayer intentions for our Country. Because ultimately, God is the one in charge. Sometimes in this crazy secular world, I forget that very thing. That needs to change and prayer is the best way to do that.
- Mathew 5:14 “But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” This is a tough one, but He commands this of us. I know for a fact I do not do this very often, if at all. That’s why I put it first on the list.
- Pray that God will help our elected officials make wise decisions.
- Pray that the sanctity of human life, in all forms, will be respected and protected from this day forth in our Country.
- Pray for the safety of our soldiers overseas and our policeman here.
- Pray that our 1st amendment right to freedom of religion and the free exercise thereof, will no longer be infringed upon by special interest groups or the government itself.
- Pray for our spouses, children, families and friends.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “ Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
