PRAYER Rx --- July 27
Most gracious Lord, remind us that we who call ourselves "Your people" on Sundays are required to live by Your guidelines seven days a week! Both as Christians and as citizens of this great nation, we need to remember that it was founded on Your moral principles. ... We each need to be honest and trustworthy in all of our daily dealings. No nation, no society, no marriage, and no family can long survive without honesty and trustworthiness! ... Open our eyes to see that too many times we give You honor on Sundays and then accept our daily newscaster's "take" on weekdays as our "gospel." Quite often we are misled and deceived! ... Remind us of our grandparents' truism that "Two wrongs do not make a right!" ... Help us to demand of our leaders the same integrity that You expect each of us to demand of ourselves, whether as Christians, as citizens, or both. Help us to seek the truth and Your guidance, lest we be deceived.
In Jesus' name we pray.
