I am back after taking a week off from writing my blogs, but I probably should have been writing or doing something besides watching the Politics of our country. A very you wise young man (Steve N.) stated that he had to back away from the ongoing dialog of Politics because it pulled him into their narrative and he became as angry and they were. I should have remembered – LOL…..
I do have to say that the Leadership of our Country needs our prayers really bad at the present time. I like the current direction the country is going but the anger and division at the top of our government is not good…. By the way I normally stay away from writing about Politics, but I believe this is something I need to say.
The one thing I know is that we have to start praying now!!! Pastor Jay has a program for Cheyenne that is “Cover Cheyenne” and it is a good program that I believe is needed now for our Country. Pastor Jay has prayer points that he sends out every month and I believe we can take a few of them and utilize them when we pray for the Leaders of our Country. Here are a couple of them (my revised version).
- Power – Pray for the Lord God of Heaven to release of the power of the Holy Spirit for quick healing and deliverance for our Leaders.
- Unity – Pray for Jesus Christ can be the center of our country once again. Pray that He will bring forth unity rooted in the submission of our leaders to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Head.
- Fullness – Pray for the Lord to bring the bride of Christ into its fullness in our Country. Pray for hunger and thirst for the Wisdom of Christ in the decisions that they are making.
- The Great Commandment. First Love – Pray for the Church of Cheyenne to fulfill the greatest commandment to love God with our whole hearts and to obey Him in all things. Love Others – Pray for the Church of Cheyenne to love our neighbors and those who are different from us and show this love in practical ways. LOVE THE UNLOVEABLE.
- Pray for God’s people in our Country to be positioned strategically in the social structures and institutions of the USA. Pray for the influence of the Kingdom of Heaven to increase in families, churches, education, media, entertainment economy and government in our Country.
- For our Leaders – Pray for protection for President Trump and all three branches of our national government in Washington, DC to be filled with the wisdom of God. Pray for the leaders in Federal, State and local government as they make decisions that will affect all of us for years to come. Pray for salvation for those in positions of authority.
- For the Church in Cheyenne to Pray – The church has a mission in the eternal plan of God to be a house of prayer for all the nations.
- Healing of Division – Pray for the God of Peace to come and heal the deep divisions that are so prominent in our Country. Pray against the plans of the enemy to deepen division and bring violence. Pray that members of the body of Christ would extend shalom into a broken world, to the glory of God.
This is a good list of items to be praying about but go where your heart leads you to pray. The Holy Spirit will give you the insight on the struggles of the day that need Prayer…
Remember: 2 Chronicles 7:14 – 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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
