Posted on 11/02/2008 10:11:53 AM PST by kingattax
America has been greatly blessed by God and has stood as the greatest country in the history of the world for over 200 years. America has many foreign and domestic enemies that are seeking her destruction.
This thread is a daily call and reminder for people of faith who believe in God and in the power of prayer to make a commitment to intercede for America at this critical time in her history
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Samuel 24:25
David built an altar to the LORD there and sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. Then the LORD answered prayer in behalf of the land, and the plague on Israel was stopped.
if we stay faithful in prayer and intercede for america as king david interceded for israel, we will see God's answer.
May God bless America
1.The LORD is my light and my salvation
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life
of whom shall I be afraid?
2.When evil men advance against me
to devour my flesh,
when my enemies and my foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall.
3.Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then will I be confident.
4.One thing I ask of the LORD,
this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.
5.For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle
and set me high upon a rock.
6.Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the LORD.
7.Hear my voice when I call, O LORD;
be merciful to me and answer me.
8.My heart says of you, "Seek his face!"
Your face, LORD, I will seek.
9.Do not hide your face from me,
do not turn your servant away in anger;
you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
O God my Savior.
10.Though my father and mother forsake me,
the LORD will receive me.
11.Teach me your way, O LORD;
lead me in a straight path
because of my oppressors.
12.Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me,
breathing out violence.
13.I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living.
14.Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD

A Prayer for the Nation
Almighty God, Who has given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech Thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Thy favor and glad to do Thy will. Bless our land with honorable ministry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion, from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people, the multitude brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endow with Thy spirit of wisdom those whom in Thy name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that through obedience to Thy law, we may show forth Thy praise among the nations of the earth. In time of prosperity fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in Thee to fail; all of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.*
Washington D.C., March 4, 1801

May God bless America and empower our people to make a wise decision on Tuesday.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Gods people need to ignore what we see and hear from polls and the media. we need to be strong in faith and encourage those around us about what we believe.
fear not, our God is omnipotent and in control and He hears and will answer our prayers
"If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."
Prayers for our candidates. Amen.
We come before you and we ask that only your perfect and divine Will be done in America. We are so grateful for this blessed land, and we see how the Enemy has come so near to our gates and we are in danger of losing the blessed gift you gave us in that divine document, the Constitution.
Father, we are mindful of the deal you cut with Lot, whereby you told him that for the sake of the 10 righteous men, the city could be spared. Father, in that day the 10 righteous men could not be found, but in this nation, there are surely the 10,000 or 1 million or even many others who are on their knees praying for your intercession, who love you, who love this nation and her blessings and who in this day would fulfill the requisite of that bargain you made with Lot. We plead with you this day to spare our nation for the sake of the fraction of the population who still adore you and appreciate and love the flame of Freedom which you have given us here. We beg you to allow the preservation of the cradle of Freedom for this world, the United States of America, governed under that magnificent Constitution.
You have been ever mindful of the prayers of your children. Beloved Father, hear us now, we beseech you! We know that there are many of your lambs who are praying and fasting. For the sake of these who do understand the need for repentance and for the renewal of our commitments to you, hear us!
Please enter into our election process and let ALL the candidates of your choice be the ones carried to Victory. Place the Light of your Wisdom and Illumination upon all of our people. If there are those who are seeking to divide our people from the inner knowledge of your laws and Will, cut them free and let them be moved to vote according to thy purpose and the highest good for this nation.
We ask that you would intercede into the entire matter of the possible vote fraud which we see displayed on our TV sets. We ask that in the face of this darkness, you will shine the Light and render any and all violations of the sanctity of our ballot boxes ineffective. Place your hand on the shoulder of those poll workers and others who might be tempted or even have intentions to overlook or even participate in underhanded activities with those ballots.
Blessed Father, send your angels to overshadow our entire nation in the days to come. Especially, Father, we ask that you will intercede in the consciousness, being and world of your precious children who have been manipulated into feeling such anger, frustration, anxiety, and injustice toward this country - so much so, that they threaten rioting and violence if they do not get their way. Heavenly Father, bless these and all of your children in this nation with the gift of Divine Unity.
We magnify your Name, and in the name of your Son, our Lord and Savior, we gratefully accept thy deliverance this day.
Lord Jesus, we’ve got 2 days until the election. We ask, in Your Name, that You will help us win!!! VICTORY IS IN SIGHT!!!! YES, LORD!!!!

Amen. Thanks Tex, I needed that!
Lord, in Jesus’ name I ask you for mercy on this sinful, rebellious nation. We have been living on, and enjoying the fruits of the “borrowed righteousness” of previous generations who feared and humbled themselves before You. We observe the masses of those who support turning this republic over to our enemies, both temporal and spiritual, and we grieve.
We ask you to keep the forces of the enemy from our government, from the presidency, from congress, and from all judicial branches.
We also ask you to pour out Your Spirit upon this wicked culture, and we ask for a spirit of repentence upon all fifty states.
“Then I turned my face to the Lord God, seeking him by prayer and supplications with fasting and sackcloth and ashes.
4.I prayed to the LORD my God and made confession, saying, “O Lord, the great and terrible God, who keepest covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments,
5.we have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly and rebelled, turning aside from thy commandments and ordinances;
6.we have not listened to thy servants the prophets, who spoke in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.
7.To thee, O Lord, belongs righteousness, but to us confusion of face, as at this day, to the men of Judah, to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to all Israel, those that are near and those that are far away, in all the lands to which thou hast driven them, because of the treachery which they have committed against thee.
8.To us, O Lord, belongs confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.
9.To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness; because we have rebelled against him,
10.and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD our God by following his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.
11.All Israel has transgressed thy law and turned aside, refusing to obey thy voice. And the curse and oath which are written in the law of Moses the servant of God have been poured out upon us, because we have sinned against him.
12.He has confirmed his words, which he spoke against us and against our rulers who ruled us, by bringing upon us a great calamity; for under the whole heaven there has not been done the like of what has been done against Jerusalem.
13.As it is written in the law of Moses, all this calamity has come upon us, yet we have not entreated the favor of the LORD our God, turning from our iniquities and giving heed to thy truth.
14.Therefore the LORD has kept ready the calamity and has brought it upon us; for the LORD our God is righteous in all the works which he has done, and we have not obeyed his voice.
15.And now, O Lord our God, who didst bring thy people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast made thee a name, as at this day, we have sinned, we have done wickedly.
16.O Lord, according to all thy righteous acts, let thy anger and thy wrath turn away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy hill; because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people have become a byword among all who are round about us.
17.Now therefore, O our God, hearken to the prayer of thy servant and to his supplications, and for thy own sake, O Lord, cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary, which is desolate.
18.O my God, incline thy ear and hear; open thy eyes and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name; for we do not present our supplications before thee on the ground of our righteousness, but on the ground of thy great mercy.
19.O LORD, hear; O LORD, forgive; O LORD, give heed and act; delay not, for thy own sake, O my God, because thy city and thy people are called by thy name.” - Daniel 9: 3-19
