Posted on 12/31/2017 12:54:03 AM PST by Faith
Please join with fellow FREEPERS to pray for President Trump, Vice-President Pence, and for America: Government, Family, Military, Business, Education, Churches, and the Media.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. (I John 5:14)

As we come to the end of another year, we look back only with gratitude for the faithfulness You have shown us, and with heartfelt thankfulness for Your grace, mercy, and love. Your Word teaches us to forget the failures, the frustrations, and the mistakes we have made; and instead to stretch forward to what is ahead. Lord, we know that the greatest force of the present and the future is You, and we look forward with confidence to all that lies ahead in the New Year. Thank You, Jesus, for the provision that has already been made for our needs and our growth because of Your finished work upon the Cross.
We come together across this nation today to pray to You, to magnify You, and to exalt Your Name. We are grateful for Your compassion and love, Father. Your eye is upon all those who fear You, upon those who hope in Your mercy.
Lord, we rejoice in the good things that are happening in America and the boldness You have given to President Trump. Thank You for the many ways You have given him strength, endurance, direction, wisdom, discernment, protection, and grace. We ask You to look with compassion upon each of our military men and women. Redeem their souls, Lord, and let none of them that trust in You be desolate. Father, for those who do not know You, may there be new opportunities for them to love and accept You as their Lord. Guard their hearts from the evil one who seeks their destruction, and lead them to the living waters of Your Spirit.
Lord, may Your people Israel be blessed beyond measure. May You be their hiding place and keep them from trouble. Compass them about with songs of deliverance.
We pray for laborers for the harvest that awaits in every part of the world. Call Your people, Lord, and send them forth. Show each of us what You would have us to do for Your glory.
Help us always to be glad in You Lord, and to rejoice in You. Let Your mercy be upon us, as we hope in You. And now, let us enter this New Year of our Lord with confidence in Your promises and hope in our Precious Savior's return. Great is Your faithfulness now and evermore. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

To the leader: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.
1 In Judah God is known,
his name is great in Israel.
2 His abode has been established in Salem,
his dwelling-place in Zion.
3 There he broke the flashing arrows,
the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war.
4 Glorious are you, more majestic
than the everlasting mountains.*
5 The stout-hearted were stripped of their spoil;
they sank into sleep;
none of the troops
was able to lift a hand.
6 At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
both rider and horse lay stunned.
7 But you indeed are awesome!
Who can stand before you
when once your anger is roused?
8 From the heavens you uttered judgement;
the earth feared and was still
9 when God rose up to establish judgement,
to save all the oppressed of the earth.
10 Human wrath serves only to praise you,
when you bind the last bit of your* wrath around you.
11 Make vows to the Lord your God, and perform them;
let all who are around him bring gifts
to the one who is awesome,
12 who cuts off the spirit of princes,
who inspires fear in the kings of the earth.
Praise God! Thank you for organizing this and for such a wonderful prayer.
Jeremiah 29:11New International Version (NIV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
we gather here to praise all You have given this nation. YOU are so needed in this land of takers and hate. Please instill hope and YOUR word in the hearts and minds of men who do not, as yet, know you. There is much suffering throughout this nation. Suffering experienced by many who do not know where to turn and go for wisdom and guidance. Please show them your path. Father, give us strength and conviction to know what must be done and teach us the courage to do it.
We pray in the name of JESUS,
Joining you in prayer, Dear Faith, in Jesus Holy Name, Amen.
Amen to your beautiful prayer, dear Faith!
Prayers always. God bless.
Happy New Year!
Amen to your prayer, V K Lee. Much to be done. Lord, we look to You for the strength, wisdom, and boldness to return to the center of Your will. In Jesus Name!
Thank you, A.W. Love the old carols and the stories they tell. Happy New Year!
Thank you for posting Psalm 76, DV. Happy New Year!
