Praying for... 'Courage for Christians in America' - Friday Jan. 28 2011




This week we pray for 'Courage for Christians in America' - Friday Jan. 28 2011

Contents on this Blog are from 
'Praying for Muslims: A guide for effective Intercession 2011'

I will be trying to post from this book every week....
Please join in each FRIDAY in INTERCEDING and FASTING(one meal) for Muslims and those on the FRONT LINES reaching out to Muslims.   





Info:
America was established on godly precepts. The framers of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and other such early documents drew heavily on the rule of God and his Word in forming the new nation.  Somehow in recent decades American Christians have abdicated their responsibility and allowed their country to go down a precipitous path from God.

What is the result?  The rise of secularism, accompanied by actions and statements that demean God and Jesus, and most dangerously, the rise of Islam in America.  I realize that America in not the Kingdom of God, but it did start as a 'city on a hill."  Sadly, it has allowed its light to grow dim!

Promise:
You will call, and the LORD will answer.  You will cry for help, and he will say "Here I am!" (Isaiah 58:9, GW)

Prayer:
You alone are God.  Blessed be Your glorious name from everlasting to everlasting.  It is exalted above all blessing and praise (Nehemiah 9:5-6).  You are the One who allowed America to come into being.  That is why we humble ourselves, come to You and repent.  Help us, O God of our salvation!  Help us for the glory of Your name.  Save us and forgive our sins for the honor of Your name (Psalms 79:9).

You saw the misery of the children of Isreal in Egypt, and You heard their cries.  You manifested Your mighty power with signs, wonders, and miracles against Pharaoh, his officials, and all his people, for You knew how arrogantly they were treating Your people (Nehemiah 9:9-10).  So, today we ask You to help Christians in America to stand up for righteousness and for Your Word.  Give us boldness to speak out for the truth, defend Your reputation and honor Your name.  Give us the courage to die, if need be, for the sake of Jesus our Lord.  May nothing separate us from the love of Christ- no trouble, no calamity, no suffering, no persecution, no hunger, no danger, no threat of death, absolutely nothing! (Romans 8:35-39
