Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx (Third of 3) --- February 20

Dear Lord, remind us that many men and women of high principles have worked and prayed, and some have sacrificed their lives to preserve the dreams that our founding fathers had for this nation, and You have heard their prayers! ... Bring us to our senses today before we unknowingly lose all that we have inherited! ... Someone once remarked that "Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; rather it has not been tried!" ... Help us to see, Lord, that those who believe that nothing is worth dying for very probably have no beliefs worth living for! ... For those of us who believe You when You said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me,"* we ask that You help us to be Your ambassadors, that we may tell others of Your healing love, Your forgiveness, and Your amazing grace! ... Help us as a nation to realize that You are indeed faithful to Your Word. Help us to return to the faith of our fathers, lest we all become losers and sacrifice the future of our children.

This we pray in Jesus' name. Amen.

     * (John 14:6)
