Spiritual Sundays


I'm joining Charlotte's (CharlottesWebspot blog) Spiritual Sundays, go here for more inspiration.

Today I have composed a prayer from someone else's post. I plan to use this as one of my many prayers crying out to God to save our country. See below for the credits.

Dear Lord God in Heaven, save us from the deception that charismatic preaching is using to lead us on the wrong path. Stop those who take God out of our country and our government. Raise up good men to lead us and protect us.

Father, forgive us for our complacency of sitting an allowing things to happen, for not taking a stand and fighting for our rights as Christians. Please give us the strength, the courage, the wisdom, and knowledge of what you want us to do.

Dear Lord raise up a mighty army to defend us and to protect our country as you did in days of old. Let us be victorious beginning NOW! The battle is Yours. We, your children, are calling on you, in prayer and fasting! We believe you will do this! “I believe, help thou my unbelief!”

Thank you, Lord, for hearing our prayers, and answering us!! Thank you for our victory!
Amen.

The prayer above was composed from a post I read while visiting Charlotte's other blog (At Home in Scottsdale) "Time For Christians to Seriously Pray" posted on October 25. An exerpt from that post is below:

Excerpt from “Time For Christians to Seriously Pray” (go here to read all of the post Charlotte posted October 25:

Excerpt: “OK, prayer warriors, here is your challenge... Start those prayer chains. Get the spiritual power working on our behalf and stop Barak Obama the proper way, by calling on our God to save us from the deception that charismatic preaching is using to lead us on the wrong path. Stop those who would take God out of our country and our government. Raise up good men to lead us and protect us. But we should not rest on our laurels and allow ourselves to be taken further off the path of Christianity and to have God removed from our presence in our schools, courts,
government and businesses.

Invite God into the fray. Ask that His power rest upon us and give us the victory. Ask him to raise up a mighty army to defend us and to protect our country as he did in days of old. Let us be victorious beginning NOW. The battle is His but we must call on Him without ceasing and unite our voices and hearts in prayer and fasting.

Please pass this around to all people of prayer that you know and maybe, just maybe, we'll bring a victory for us and ultimately for Him. AMEN!”
If you would like to type up one of your prayers, send them to me, and I will post them here.
This is the second post I've done today, please read the post below too! Thanks!
