Prayer Prescription for This Date


PRAYER Rx --- July 2

Dear Lord, how we must grieve You! You had such plans for this nation. Our founding fathers recognized Your authority, that we were each Your creation. Even those who didn't know You well believed in the sacredness of life. ... Now, because we are so knowledgeable, we want to usurp Your position. We want to rewrite Your Word, and redesign Your family unit according to our own likings. ... Remind us, Lord, that if we who call ourselves Your people do not stand for Your moral principles, then we are no better than the leaders that we either voted for or elected by not voting at all! ... You speak to us in earthquakes, fire, floods, hurricanes and blizzards. How can we fail to see that You are still in charge? How many wake-up calls will You give us? ... Help us to have the courage to be fully Your people, to live holy lives because You are holy and You require holiness of us.*

In Jesus' name I pray.

Amen.

     * (See Lev. 19:2; I Thess. 4:7-8)
