Heavenly Father, Creator of the universe and all that is in it, I lift my eyes and voice in praise. Your faithfulness, loving kindness, and mercy has no bounds for which your people are truly grateful. As one of the people that you know by name, I humbly repent of my inequities and ask that You bless my country once again by healing this land of the evil that has infected so many. Soften their hearts, Abba, so that we as a nation may lift our eyes, ears, and voices to You in praise and thanksgiving.

In the name of your Son, Yeshua, I pray.

Heal The Land

I heard on TV last night from a credible source that instead of Haiti celebrating Carnival (Mardi Gras), the President of Haiti canceled the event and called for three days of fasting and prayer. Over one million came, fasted, and prayed for God to heal the land as per II Chronicles 7:14:

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 I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."

The New King James Version. Nashville : Thomas Nelson, 1982, S. 2 Ch 7:14

Now, remember that these people are half-starving since the earthquake and still were willing to pray and fast three days! I did a Google search and the event was canceled as per my source and CNN along with a couple of other web sites witnessing the prayers and fasting.

I add my prayers to the Haiti voices of supplication to heal the land.

In the name of Jesus, I pray.

We Turn Our Eyes Upward

Heavenly Father, Creator and King of the universe, we turn our eyes upward and ask that You continue to awaken the people of this nation to educate themselves in civic affairs. We lift our eyes towards You for guidance and wisdom in our every day activities and relationships. May we recognized and have grateful hearts for the many blessings You have bestowed upon us as an individual, as a people, and as a nation.

Soften our hearts and open our ears so we may hear your voice of compassion, mercy and be a reflection of Your light towards our fellowman. We humble ourselves before You, Father, and ask that you heal our land.

In the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I pray.

Here is the Manhattan Delcaration: A Call of Christian Conscience, signed by laity, pastors, bishops and archbishops of all denominations. The Church is standing up and ready to go to jail if necessary. Enough is enough.

Here is a new song written by Keith Carradine and performed by 14 singers, musicians and two choral groups. It will bring tears to your eyes.

One God, Many Names

Rise up, O Shophet* of the earth;
pay back to the proud what they deserve.

How long will the wicked, O Lord,
how long will the wicked be jubilant?

They pour out arrogant words;
all the evildoers are full of boasting.

They crush your people, O Lord;
they oppress your inheritance.

They slay the widow and the alien;
they murder the fatherless.

They say, "The Lord does not see;
the God of Jacob pays no heed."

Take heed, you senseless ones among the people;
you fools, when will you become wise?

Does he who implanted the ear not hear?
Does he who formed the eye not see?

Does he who disciplines nations not punish?
Does he who teaches man lack knowledge?

The Lord knows the thoughts of man;
he knows that they are futile.

Blessed is the man you discipline, O Lord,
the man you teach from your law;
you grant him relief from days of trouble,
till a pit is dug for the wicked.

For the Lord will not reject his people;
he will never forsake his inheritance.

Judgment will again be founded on righteousness,
and all the upright in heart will follow it.

Psalm 94:2-15

Heavenly Father, Creator of the heavens and the earth, our Shophet, and the Living God, I lift up our elected leaders for your guidance in their making wise decisions for our beloved country. You have blessed us beyond anything ever seen; the prosperity has turned our eyes away from You; we have become arrogant, prideful, greedy, and liars; but Father, we repent and lift our eyes back towards You and ask that You be merciful to this nation. Those of us that love you are increasing and we need your light to brush away the darkness that has settled over our nation.

In the name of your Son, Jesus, I pray.

*Judge, Hebrew

Heavenly Father, we need your help. The country is swiftly sliding into ruin. We ask that you soften the hearts of our leaders so that they make decisions for the good of all Americans. Guide us, Most High, through one of the most difficult times in our history.

There are more than 10 righteous people on their knees asking for guidance, wisdom, and intervention to turn this country around to continue being the light of the world. We turned from you to serve the Babylonian gods of wealth, fortune, status, luxury, self instead of acknowledging that those things were added because our eyes were on you and followed your path. When the Jews repented, you sent a judge. Jews and Christians alike are repenting and we ask that you intervene to turn our downward slide into an upward climb as we shift our eyes away from the gods of Babylon toward you.

I ask in the name of my Lord and Your Son, Jesus. Amen

Prayer For Our Nation

I found this Jefferson prayer today on the Net.

Thomas Jefferson
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
