Praying for America- Moving Mountains Monday!
Hi friends, how was your weekend? Ready for another week set before us? Well, do you have some time to join me in praying for our country?
Today I am going to be focusing on giving thanks.
1 Chronicles 29:13
Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.
Join me or add what the Spirit has put on your heart for today...
Today we come before You to thank you for Your Goodness! Lord, You are so very good to us. Your favor indeed does last a lifetime and Your mercies are new each day. Father, we thank You for our nation, for it's leaders. We thank You for Your protective and guiding hand on our behalf. We thank You for the provision over our lives, our families and our friends.
Lord, we thank You for our churches, for our Pastors and for all they give to us, because of their love of You. Holy Spirit, please help us through today to give You thanks. Remind us of the good You have so generously poured out upon us. Enrich the ones You have called so they can teach us and grow us into a people who will follow You with all of our hearts.
We ask for Your hand upon us today, upon our President and those in authority in our country. Father, we have such abundance in America. I am afraid that having so much has made us forget how very good You are to us. Lord, so often it takes sickness, troubles or death to make us fall on our knees before You. Forgive us, for our short memories of Your faithfulness and provision to us.
We know You have made our country great. You have guided our steps and protected our borders. Lord, we thank You for Your hand upon our military and that You are giving the leaders wisdom and power to keep this country free and safe. We thank You for Your generous Spirit and that we haven't even been faithful when You show Yourself so faithful on our behalf.
Thank You Father for Your love. Help us to receive it and to live in it. Lord, open our hearts before You, cleanse Your people and draw others into Your family by softening their hearts. Make Your name bigger before our eyes.
Ultimately Lord, we confess our absolute need of Your power, love, and Presence in our lives, and in America. We ask for You to move mightily and to glorify Your matchless name!
In Jesus' Name...

under whose wings you have come to take refuge, reward you fully for what you have done.
