Pray for our Nation & President-Elect Obama - Day 15

Posted on 11/18/2008 8:08:02 PM PST by Blogger

The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him. (Psalm 37:23-40)

TOPICS: Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You this evening, weary from a long day's work and a busy evening. It seems that so often, this is the story of my life. So busy that I either forget to come to You or meditate upon You or say more than a cursory prayer. Forgive me Lord for not being the Christian that I should be.

Lord, I pray for my nation which has sinned against You in many ways. She has substituted the moral principles found in Your Word with her own vain imaginations and justifications for sinful lifestyles and perversions of that which is good. Now, she is going one step further, committing violent acts against those who would dare call it sin. How much further can widescale persecution be?

Lord, we are living in fearful times. So much is at stake, and so few seem to really care. Revive this land. Wake up Your church, which threatens to become a corpse. Cause a revival of righteousness and truth to overcome the evil which we are witnessing. And start with us.

Save our President Elect. Take his heart, Lord, and make it truly Yours. Cause him to reject every false doctrine he has ever believed and to cast aside every policy which runs contrary to Your perfect will. I do not pray for his success in terms of his own agenda, but make him a successful follower of Your Son - that the World may see You are God.

Protect us from evil. Lead us not into temptation. Help us to be pure before You.

Go with us the rest of this evening and through the day tomorrow. Guide us into all truth. Help us to be wise stewards of that which You have given us; and help us to keep our eyes on You. Keep our faith strong.

For it is in the blessed name of Christ Jesus my Lord I pray these things, Amen.

Jeremiah 16:17-21

17For my eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from my presence, nor is their iniquity concealed from my sight. 18And* I will doubly repay their iniquity and their sin, because they have polluted my land with the carcasses of their detestable idols, and have filled my inheritance with their abominations.

19O Lord, my strength and my stronghold,
my refuge on the day of trouble,
to you shall the nations come
from the ends of the earth and say:
Our ancestors have inherited nothing but lies,
worthless things in which there is no profit.
20Can mortals make for themselves gods?
Such are no gods!

21 ‘Therefore I am surely going to teach them, this time I am going to teach them my power and my might, and they shall know that my name is the Lord.’

Lord, God Almighty of the Angel Armies . . .


INSURE . . . perhaps using the Supreme Court . . .

that ODeceiver will not live in the Whitehouse.

Give the Supreme Court fireceness in behalf of the Constitution.

Cause them to have backbones sufficient to stand up to the puppet masters and other forces railroading such a traitorous person into the Whitehouse.

Cause every evil deception to be exposed fully and broadcast abroad ASAP.

Cause the evil plotters to fall into the pits they have dug for the Nation and for Believers.

Cause all the lies to be fully exposed.

Cause the truth of his birth to be broadcast abroad with full disclosure and proofs and solid testimony.

Cause the Constitution to be fully defended and supported.

Cause even liberal idiots to increase their respect for the Constitution as a defense of their liberties as well.

Cause the more reasonable liberals to begin to fear the treasonous events of the Main Stream Media and other forces so recently successful and giddy in their evil glee.

Cause the enemy’s camp to eat their own and shred each other.

You have promised, Lord, that when evil floods the land, you would raise up a Standard against it. Please, Lord, let us see this valiantly and overwhelmingly well before 20 Jan 2009.

GOD HAVE MERCY ON OUR LAND, LORD. Is there not per capita more than 10 righteous folks in the land compared to Soddom and Gomorrah?

Father God,
I too come to you wearied after a very very difficult day's work. I feel even more weary after watching the video of gay thugs spewing hatred at Christians. Lord, it seems that evil assaults us on every side and is poised to overtake us. Perhaps the end of all things is near. If this is so, let us be clear minded. Let us have self control. Let us continue to love each other deeply.
Gracious Lord, we know we should not be surprised by persecution. You have told us we would suffer. Help us to rejoice, because we share in the sufferings of Christ. And if we suffer for doing good, how much more will evil doers suffer?
Help President-elect Obama to do good. Change his heart concerning abortion. And, yes, I pray for the protection of his life and his families lives.
Help us to get a good night of sleep. Protect us in the fortress of your love
In Jesus Name, AMEN

IF IT IS REMOTELY POSSIBLE FOR BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA TO CONFESS AND REPENT OF HIS SIN AND HIS EVIL HEART-—THEN WELL AND GOOD. May he then show godly wisdom & courage & be able to withstand and defeat the demonic forces that he allied himself with.


I pray he falls in the pit he has dug as soon as possible... And may as many of his cohorts fall in with him..

I pray as many of his schemes, goals and lies are spread vividly across the land and the world in neon lights as thoroughly and candidly as possible in all their horror..

I pray he is humiliated as the duplicitous scoundral and traitor to all that is good as thoroughly and quickly as possible..

I pray that the whitewash hiding his evil is washed away as quickly as possible.

I pray that some of his loudest supporters see his evil first and cry the alarm first.

I pray that his name becomes a curse word amongst the Hollyweed and media elite first and as soon as possible.

I pray that his arrogance and outrageously black hearted evil will cause his shallow mask to slip and fall utterly to the ground never to be able to be in place again.

I pray that whatever righteous and patriotic forces may be available and called on to do heroic work will hinder the worst of his evil in every honorable practical way possible.

I pray that his arrogance and power-mongering and control freaque-ism become so overblown and so outrageously extreme that he wholesale decompensates in prime time on CNN & all the DBM

May God have yet again at some point mercy on our land.

May this horrific judgment on our faithlessness to Him be short and limited.

Father God, You created the heavens and the earth, and since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with You our creator, through our Lord Jesus Christ. Your Word says in Isaiah 53,"Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" You Lord Jesus, You are the Lamb of God and You are the arm of God, for You created the universe, and everything that exists. How we praise You Father, that in Christ and through faith in Him we may approach You with freedom and confidence!

Lord, we approach You this day, and humbly ask for Your Help. We need You to help us to understand that the amount of faith we possess will greatly affect the freedom and confidence with which we approach You. Father, You have written Your Word to those of us who believe in the name of the Son of God so that we may know we have eternal life. This day Lord, Help our President-Elect, and those he turns to for advice to know and to cease doubting.

Lord Jesus, You are the Lamb of God, and it is by You and through You that all things were created. You are the arm of God that bled to death on a cross, and You are the power of the Almighty. Father, reveal to every authority in our land, that there is nothing greater in this world, no greater power in the universe, than the love of God manifested at Calvary.

Father, if our leaders, and the people of our country desire change, give them first the desire to change their lives, for in doing so, we can move forward as a great nation in changing the world, we can live in the power of the Your mighty arm, in the power of the cross of Calvary, and in the power of the blood of Him, who gave up his life for us, Amen

Amen to your fervent prayer, WhatNot, and to all those posted for our Nation and President-Elect.

Psalm 2

1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.

5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

7I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

10Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

May it be, Merciful Father, that the hearts of the wicked will be pierced by the Holy Spirit, that they escape the wrath to come. And may there be a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the Body of Christ, that the Light of Revival might fall upon the land. Amen ...

Amen Pegita, and another prayer bump for this great nation to return to the God of her Fathers! Please Lord, let our country forsake the god of this world.

I am really in a delima here.
THE ONE... what if, he is "the one" ... you know, the one You warned us about? Or, even a "foot soldier" of that one. Exactly how am I suppose to pray for "the one" that is "that one"? Well, all I know to do is lift it up to You. I am really trying, as flippant as this prayer may sound. But You, merciful God, know this is truly how I am praying. So, Thy will be done!

I love you, Lord. And pray that Your wisdom finds my brain... and his.

Thank You for being longsuffering and gracious! Amen

Father, Your Word says that You can turn the hearts of kings. I lift Obama up to You and ask that You reveal Your vision to him so that he is not dissuaded by forces of evil, yet instead becomes a righteous leader who will be a blessing to this nation. Lord, the government is upon Your shoulders. Let Your righteousness rule throughout this land.

Oh my Jesus, You have told us that whatever we ask in Your name will be granted. My Beloved Jesus, I ask You by the power of Your most precious Body and Blood to free Barack Obama from any evil spirits trying to bind or possess, harass or obsess him. I ask by the power of Your holy name that Barack Obama will come to know that You are the Way, the Truth and the Life.
