Prayer for All Mankind

In the Old Testament times, God's armies were always led by the priests. When the waters parted in the Jordan it was the priests' feet which first hit the turbulent river. In the New Testament times, Christians were also referred to as priests. We must, therefore, go in first. The call to action is our call first as civilians in the Army of God. All we need to do is place that heavenly call. It is simple, no need for a cell phone, no need for pen and paper. The call is simple, it is prayer backed by faith. Therefore the line of communication is open, the number is dialed and this is our conversation: Father in the name of Jesus we are calling for Your protection and Your guidance. Holy Spirit breathe Your breath on the paths of our current President and our governing officials both Republican and Democrat, on the national, state, and local levels to make clear their paths and remove obstacles that may be there before them. Give to them the knowledge for what is best for our peoples and what is best for our country and not for personal gain or vendettas. Give to them the wisdom to use that knowledge wisely. Without wisdom Lord, that knowledge is useless. We are also calling on Your protection for the innocent, Lord. Wars do not protect all involved. Innocent lives are always at stake. Wars are not always the ones fought on battle grounds. Wars are also those unseen in the emotions, in homes, people starving, people homeless, people jobless, people destitute, people hopeless, the unborn child that people want to abort. We need new life to our dreams, to our hopes for a better tomorrow Lord. Open the eyes of those who do not know You and who are not fully involved in helping our country to overcome the trials and tribulations that have come upon us as a nation. Give new strength and courage to those who do know You Lord and who are striving to help this great nation of ours. Give them the courage to stand tall and speak up and be bold as Paul was during Biblical times. We need men and women of courage to help our new leaders. Bring us all together as we should be for we are all one united in fellowship with You, when we kneel and pray. We are calling to pray that You in Your mighty power bring to justice what is truth. Pierce the hearts of those who mean harm, dear Lord, so deeply as to convict them of their evil ways. Bring about confusion to their greed for power, for control of Your peoples. This nation has long been turning to selfishness and too much greed, what is in it for me with less concern for our fellowman, our neighbor, and our friends. Not only is it hands across the table but hands across the waters for we should be reaching out to all peoples, all mankind. It is way past time to stop bickering, stop spreading falsehoods and twisting what is truth to make it evil. For too long, Lord, too many people are turning their backs on You. They are opting for the quick buck, the quick fix, the quick anything. You, Lord, are not a machine we can turn to and expect answers to our prayers in a microwave minute. Then too, there are many who only pray for selfish reasons not even thanking You for prayers answered. How many people donít even realize how many miracles have occurred in their own lives? Prayers answered are in Your timing. The universe, planet earth was created in Your timing. Too many people are not setting good examples for children, their co-workers, their friends, their relationships, their family. It is too often the Ďwhatís in it for me first, then maybe I will help you. You never know when the person you help today will be the very person you will have to depend on for help to maybe save your life. Think about the lady you were rude to in the grocery store. She just might be your nurse or doctor someday. So we ask for patience Lord. We are praying for wisdom and revelation instead of love, compassion, and courage. Lord, we know that knowledge without wisdom is really useless. Wisdom helps to know how to use that knowledge. Revelation reveals how to use that wisdom to know how to show love, to show compassion, and to be courageous. Wisdom and revelation go together and without them love, compassion and courage are virtually empty. Come Holy Spirit, without your revelation for how to use wisdom, we are functioning under your own power, not the will of God. Reveal in us the wisdom needed to use the knowledge needed to correct the turmoil in our land. In advance we thank You for You are almighty and powerful. Only You are more powerful than anything the enemy may toss at us. You Lord are more powerful than any illicit drug, illicit affairs, illicit sex, unlawful acts, lust for money, lust for power, control over people, and vicious acts. You, Lord, had Gideon reduce his army from 32,000 to 300 men. They were equipped with nothing but trumpets, pitchers, and torches. When Gideon gave the command, You made the enemy flee, crying and turning on each other. You, God, messed with enemy plans. We are calling on You to mess with the enemy's plans. Our government, our country and our military need our prayerful support. Itís a long prayer, Lord, but we are long on problems in the world. America is not alone. These are universal problems. So say a prayer for all mankind. Thank You for hearing our call. In sweet Jesus' name we complete this call. Amen and Amen.'

Spend a little time with Jesus 'cuz he spends a lot of time with you. So can you not tarry an hour? Start in baby steps. Ten minutes can grow to an hour. In the garden Christ asked could you not tarry an hour?

If you are not in prayer daily why not? The first thing you do in the morning when you get out of bed controls you. That does not mean putting your feet on the floor or going to the bathroom. It means do you spend time in Facebook first? Do you turn your television on before praying? Is your cup of coffee and/or cigarette your lord? This list could go on and on and on. That's how we try to start our day. Before I get out of bed I say The Lord's Prayer to clear my head. My husband gets up earlier and stands before the manger scene still on our fireplace mantle and prays. That is why we keep it there. It also does not mean we are without fault. But this is our usual routine. What is the first thing you do when you get out of bed? Think about that question honestly.
