This Morning’s Prayer

Here is the prayer that I prayed at this morning’s national prayer service:

Our Father in Heaven and God of compassion,

Our prayer today is that You would be near to all who call upon Your name, that is the name above every name.

We pray that, in their daily life and work and service—in whatever form of service they are engaged in—that they would be devoted to our nation.

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, we commend to Your gracious care and keeping all the men and women of our armed forces at home and abroad. Defend them, day by day, with Your divine protection, in places of danger. Give them courage and loyalty.

And guide those also who represent our nation as members of the diplomatic corps, that they may be ambassadors of hope, working for peace and goodwill among all people.

Give us grace to do Your will in all that we undertake.

Almighty God, we also pray that You would instill in the governors of states, and the mayors of cities and towns, and civil servants, those that serve in school boards and councils, and all administrative and governmental authorities, that they would have the spirit of wisdom, and love, and justice, and compassion, that with steadfast purpose they may faithfully serve in their offices to promote the well-being of all people.

Give us grace to do Your will in all that we undertake.

I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

    Luke 10-19. Thank you Greg for your faithfulness. I hope you have the opportunity to share with our President. That Nehemiah was a great leader & also built a wall. However they were always against him. But he prayed while he worked & worked while he prayed. God bless you
