A Prayer For Immigrant Families Along The U.S. Border

Gracious Father, we thank You for the signing of the executive order for immigrant families to stay together.  Thank You for being concerned for all humanity, including immigrant families.  Thank You for Your presence, love and mercy towards these families.  Lord God, Your ways are perfect.  All of Your promises prove true.  You are a shield for all who look to You for protection.  There is no God except You, Lord.  You are a solid rock. 

Righteous Father, we command justice to continue to run down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream for the immigrant families entrenched in the current atrocity that separated children from their parents in America!  Lord, we rebuke the spirits of obstinance, chaos, and confusion and command peace to be still in the processing of these families.  Lord, continue to hear the cries of these families and rescue them from trouble.  We expect that You will meet their needs speedily from Your glorious riches which have been given in Christ Jesus. 

Holy Spirit, help President Donald Trump and Congress to reach a scriptural resolution for this issue.  Give them no rest until it is done!  Touch the hearts of the United States Border Patrol men and women and help them to treat the families, especially the children, fairly and with compassion.  Remind them of the legacy of America in which many families have found better economic opportunities and refuge throughout history.  Lord, please have mercy on our nation!  Convict the hearts of those who are preying on the fears of these families to manipulate them.  As the Body of Christ, please show us what actions we are to take and how we are to extend Your love and grace to these families. 

Abba Father, forgive our leaders for the dehumanizing and unscriptural acts of separating immigrant families. Holy Spirit, help our nation to be forgiving.  

Holy Spirit, help our citizens not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.\

Triumphant God, You are King!  The mountains melt like wax before You, Lord.  The heavens proclaim Your righteousness; every nation sees Your glory!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Declaration for Justice

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 118:1-9, Psalm 140

 

Reflections of the Heart:

“Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.  Romans 12:19

 

Scriptural Prayer:

 

Eternal Father, we thank You for being the just Judge.  Thank You for hearing us when we call to You for help for our nation.  Thank You for moving on the hearts of Your people to establish peace, justice and righteousness in the earth.  Lord, we will praise You with all of our hearts.  Your love for us is so very great, we will give glory to Your Name forever!  Lord, You have rescued us from the depths of death.  We will sing of Your unfailing love forever. Young and old will hear of Your faithfulness.  Your unfailing love will last forever.  Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens.

 

Immortal Father, we command justice to run down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream within our judicial system in America. Your Word says that justice and righteousness are more acceptable to You than sacrifice. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne. We confess that justice and righteousness will prevail in our nation, homes, workplaces, churches, schools and communities.  You are the Lord who loves all of humankind; You are no respecter of persons.  Lord, You created us in Your image and it is Your desire that we, Your creation, love each other as we love ourselves.  Lord, we believe that You will raise us above the injustices of racism that our nation has witnessed lately.  And because Your Spirit dwells within us, the Body of Christ, we confess that we will walk in righteousness and integrity.  We will not discriminate against anyone because of their race, their sex, or their age.  We will not pay back evil with more evil, but we will always do things in such a way that everyone can see that we are honorable. 

 

Holy Spirit, as I watch the news, show me how to pray about the injustices in our nation:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Holy Spirit, please help our nation to heal from the wounds that the instances of injustice have inflicted on the American people.  Remind the members of the Body of Christ to not sin by letting anger control them. Grant each of us the desire and commitment to daily walk in Your justice and righteousness without prejudice or partiality.  Deal with the hearts of those Christians who practice this ungodliness.  Remind them to walk in Your Spirit and not in their flesh.  Guide parents on how to talk with their children about this subject in a way that will not instill fear, anger, or hatred.  Holy Spirit, I ask that You search my heart for areas of hidden discrimination or bias and remove it immediately from me.

 

Abba Father, forgive us for any acts of racism, sexism, and ageism.  Forgive our nation for its injustice, prejudice, and oppression.  Forgive our nation for loving power and things instead of people.  Please forgive those persons who are presently practicing racism, sexism, and ageism.  As the Body of Christ, we renounce the gods of racism, sexism, and ageism.  Forgive me, Father, for not acknowledging that when I make blanket statements about race, sex, or age that I am discriminating.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.

Triumphant King, You are greater than any other god. You do whatever You please throughout all heaven and earth, and on the seas and in their depths.  You cause clouds to rise over the earth. You send lightning with the rain and release the winds from Your storehouses.  Your Name, Lord, endures forever, Your fame is known to every generation.  Yours, Lord, is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Declaration for Healthy and Happy Marriages in the Body of Christ

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 98, Genesis 2:15-25

 

Reflections of the Heart:

Marriage is not just a relationship; it’s a covenant. You’re not just committed to a person; you’re committed to a purpose − one that God designed from the beginning to bring Him glory. Since it was designed by the Creator Himself, He alone is the best reference for maintaining and enjoying it.

 

Scriptural Prayer:

 

Exalted Father, thank You for Your great love that continues from generation to generation!  Thank You for the married couples in the Body of Christ. Thank You for encouraging and blessing our marriages.  With our whole being we praise You. We rejoice in knowing that You are our God, and that we are the people You watch over and the flock under Your care. Thank You, Lord!  We bless Your holy Name!  We stand in awe of You and Your unfailing love for us. You are the Master who motivates our hearts toward all that is good. We acknowledge Your sovereignty over our marriages. We will sing a new song to You, Lord, for the wonderful deeds You have done. We shout with joy and worship You with gladness.  We come before You singing with joy.  You are the Lord, our Father, who made us and we are Yours!

 

Holy Spirit, as the Body of Christ, we expect You to lead us into all truth as it pertains to the covenant of marriage. We confess that our married couples are never subject to the spirit of fear; but they have power, love and self-discipline to help them keep their covenant pure. Lord, we confess that our husbands will live with their wives according to knowledge and they will cherish them as the manifested gift of God’s favor. We declare that our wives will honor their husbands and will adorn themselves as Sarah did, not with material elegance, but with a quiet and peaceful spirit which You love, Lord God.  As the Body of Christ, we confess that our married couples will daily aspire to the greater love that Jesus personified and live a servant’s life before one another. We declare that they will provoke one another to good works and celebrate one another’s gifts. We confess that they will commit to encourage and build one another up in the Lord!

 

Holy Spirit, help each spouse to keep a heart of unconditional love for their mate. Reveal creative ways for our married couples to love and enjoy each other. Heal wounds and hurts and rejoin marriages that seem to be walking down separate paths. Teach them to freely issue mercy and to forgive quickly without allowing grudges to form.  Magnify the model of marriage through those who have healthy marriages, so that others are inspired and encouraged.  Anoint their unity together as husbands and wives, so that their children will be given stability and assurance, and the unsaved will be given hope concerning the sanctity of marriage. Re-light the passion and fire for those who are struggling sexually and emotionally. When our married couples speak of one another, whether in public or private, please season their tongues with grace. Help our married couples to stay committed to truth and to cover one another’s weaknesses with unyielding love.

 

Father, as a spouse, I commit to making my marriage better by:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Father, as a single person, I commit to praying for the following marriage(s):

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Holy Father, forgive our married couples for being too stubborn to offer grace and mercy to their spouses when they should have.  Forgive those who have neglected their commitment to their spouse, sexually, emotionally and relationally. Where those couples have grown cold-hearted, make their hearts tender toward their spouses. Forgive them for the times they’ve become so distracted with the cares of this world that they have neglected their responsibility to one another. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our married couples of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help our married couples not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.

 

We worship You, O Great Deliverer! All praise belongs to You. You are the Lord God of Israel who alone does such wonderful things.  We will praise Your glorious Name forever.  Let the whole earth be filled with Your glory, in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

A Christian Organization Prayer of Love for God and Their Neighbor

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 138:2, I John 4:7-21 

 

Reflections of the Heart:

The fruit of the Spirit is Love.  Only as we live in God’s love, can we fulfill His will in our lives. The believer must become Love-inspired, Love-mastered and Love-driven.

 

ONE Prayer:

 

Almighty Father, as Christians, thank You for loving us despite the way we sometimes act or think.  Thank You for giving us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with Your love, so that we may share love with others.  Thank You for helping us to be more loving and compassionate towards others. Lord, we come before You clapping our hands and shouting joyful praise to You.  You are the great King of all the earth.  You subdue the nations before us and put our enemies under our feet. Our hearts are confident in You, Father.  Because of this confidence, we will sing Your praises. We will wake the dawn with our song, Lord, among all the people.  We will sing Your praises among the nations for Your unfailing love is as high as the heavens.  Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

 

Glorious Father, as Your dear children, we commit to loving You with all our hearts, and with all our souls, and with all our minds. This is the greatest and most important commandment of all.  As a Christian organization, in the same Spirit, we also commit to loving our neighbors as ourselves.  We confess that the Holy Spirit fills and controls us as we commit to doing Your will.  We will be patient and kind instead of acting jealous, boastful, proud or rude.  We will not demand our own way, but we will be considerate of others and their opinions.  We will not be irritable or keep a record of being wronged.  But we will be joyful and quick to forgive. We commit to living a righteous life. We will be patient and will not return evil with evil.  As a Christian organization, we will let our light shine so that people will see our good works and glorify You, our Father. 

 

As a Christian, how do you show your love for God and for your neighbor by your actions?

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Holy Spirit, reveal to us those habits, mindsets and attitudes that prevent us from being truly surrendered to the Father.  Help us to not deceive ourselves by thinking we are walking in love while using our tongues to curse those who have been made in the Father’s image. In this world where we are told to put ourselves first, help us to truly put the Father first in our lives, and to esteem others better than ourselves. 

 

Exalted Father, we ask Your forgiveness for our sins.  Forgive us for, at times, being irreverent and apathetic towards You.  Forgive those of us who murmur and complain and do not show our love and appreciation for all that You do.  Forgive us when we are impatient with our neighbor. Forgive us when we pick and choose to whom we will show love.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, as Christians, remind us of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, as Christians, help us not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.

 

Eternal Lord, You are God alone.  You created the heavens and the earth; You put everything in its place.  You made the world to be lived in, not a place of empty chaos.  You are the Lord and there is no other.  You only speak what is true and declare only what is right.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer Against Hurricane Irma

Dear Believer,

 

Stand in your front or backyard, extend your hand in the direction of the Gulf Coast and speak to the storm.  In Mark 4:35-39, Jesus Christ spoke to the weather and commanded it to be calm.  So, as believers, we are following His example.  Pray with the authority that has been given to you in Jesus Christ and pray in faith. Please pray this prayer out loud and with fervency and determination.  God has placed His power in our verbal expressions, so lift up your voice.  Believe that your prayers will produce results in Jesus’ Name.  Please pray this prayer.

 

Thank you, in advance, for standing on the wall for our region.

Your mercies are fresh every morning.  We praise Your great and awesome Name.  Your Name is holy!

 

Eternal Father, using the authority given to us in the Name of Jesus, we speak to Hurricane Irma, and we command peace, be still!  We command the winds to dissipate and the barometric pressure to rise and normalize. By faith, we declare that this storm will not reach north or south of Puerto Rico or hit the U.S. mainland.

A Prayer for the United States of America

Scripture Reading:
I Chronicles 16:23-34, Psalm 51:10-11

Reflections of the Heart:
This is the ______ day of the Omer. “We praise You, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us by Jesus Christ, our eternal Redeemer and Savior, and commanded us to count the Omer. By faith, we wait with joyful hearts to celebrate the sending of Your Holy Spirit.”

Scriptural Prayer:

Almighty Father, we thank You for blessing the United States of America with abundance and prosperity. Thank You for surrounding our nation with Your favor, grace, and mercy. Thank You for our military personnel who sacrifice greatly to protect our nation. God, You merely spoke and the heavens were created. You breathed the Word, and all the stars were born. You assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs. We praise Your Name forever and ever, for You possess all wisdom and power. Lord, You are glorious and more majestic than the everlasting mountains. You sit on Your holy throne and reign above the nations. All the kings of the earth belong to You. You are highly honored everywhere.

Heavenly Father, let Your Kingdom come and Your will be done in our nation. Father, unless You build the house, the work of the builders is wasted. Unless You protect our nation, guarding it with sentries will do no good. While many citizens may worship other god’s in our nation, we proclaim that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. By faith, we declare that as Jesus Christ is lifted up in our nation, all people will to be drawn to Him. We decree that we live in the shelter of the Most High and we find rest in the shadow of You, the Almighty. God, You are our refuge, our place of safety. Lord of Heaven’s armies, You are our God and we will trust in You. Lord, we confess that no evil will come upon our nation; neither will any plague come near us. Your Word states that You have given Your angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways. We expect that You alone, will make us dwell in safety. Father, we expect Your Spirit to be poured out upon our nation. On today, the National Day of Prayer, we are expecting to receive Your Spirit abundantly. We declare that people in our nation will be set free today; for where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Come, Holy Spirit, come!

A Prayer Against Terrorism

Our Father, we thank You for being our Protector. Thank You for extending Your mercy and grace towards the nations around the world who are experiencing terrorism. Thank You for helping military personnel, law enforcement and intelligence agencies as they root out the people who are involved in these horrendous terrorist attacks. Thank You for hearing the prayers of the righteous worldwide and sending Your angels to fight supernaturally. Thank You for protecting our nation. We realize that it is only by Your grace that we are not experiencing the same acts of terrorism. We give thanks to You, Lord, for You are good and Your mercy endures forever. By Your Word, the heavens were created. You merely spoke, and the heavens were created. You breathed the Word, and all the stars were born. You assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs. Let the whole world fear You and let everyone stand in awe of You. When You spoke, the world began and appeared at Your command!

Almighty Father, by the authority given to us in Jesus’ Name, we command peace be still! We rebuke the spirit of terror and cancel the schemes and assignments of every evil spirit, including the spirits of deception, rebellion, and confusion that are in alignment with the spirit of terror. We command every person worldwide who is plotting against the good of humanity be exposed and captured. We decree that the love of Christ will saturate this international crisis. We declare healing to every person who was injured in the bombing attacks and, in Jesus’ Name, we speak healing to the minds and souls of the families who are mourning the death of a loved one. Lord of Heaven’s Armies, we are expecting to witness Your mighty power against this evil and see a mighty outpouring of Your love through the Body of Christ.

Holy Spirit, please comfort the citizens of Paris, France regarding the recent bombings. Confuse and scatter the masterminds who are behind the evil works of terrorism. Continue to work with authorities to uncover and destroy the network operations of ISIS and all other terrorist groups. Touch the hearts of family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers to report person(s) who are involved with any terrorist organizations. Holy Spirit, amplify the voices of Your missionaries who are praying and teaching the Gospel in this part of the world. Please protect them as they carry out Your work. Touch the hearts of all Christians to pray for all the nations, including our own. We ask You to increase Your discernment, wisdom, knowledge, boldness, confidence and peace in our President and all world leaders as they collaborate to combat this seemingly impossible dilemma. Father, with people some things are impossible, but with You all things are possible. We are trusting in You!

Merciful Father, forgive the terrorists for their murderous acts. Forgive us all for our many sins. Forgive those who rebel against You and Your Word. Please extend Your mercy to all the nations of the world who have been attacked by terrorists; to refugees fleeing the violence; and those who have lost loved ones. They need Your help! We all need Your help! Forgive those of us for not consistently praying about terrorism in the world and for being insensitive about the injustices and atrocities occurring in other parts of the world. Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to forgive.

Holy Spirit, help those devastated by terrorism to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Great and marvelous are Your actions, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints. Who will not fear You and glorify Your Name? You alone are Holy. All nations will come and worship before You, for Your righteous deeds have been revealed. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
