PRAYER Rx --- August 18
Dear Lord, as we pray for our nation's leadership, help us to realize, both as Christians and as citizens, that each one of us has a responsibility to our country. ... Help us to commit ourselves to pray daily for our leaders and for our nation's welfare. Let us recognize our country's waywardness, and repent and seek Your will that we may return to being bound by Your truths. ... As we pray for Christian revival around the world, let us also pray for Christian revival here at home. ... Open our eyes to see the subtle deceptions of the New Age philosophies that have already invaded our media, entertainment, businesses, schools and universities, and many of our church denominations, where too often freedom has been accepted to mean no boundaries, no absolutes, and no rules. ... Oh Lord, remind us that You are still sovereign; it is Your universe and Your world, and the Bible is Your "manufacturer's handbook." ... Remind us all that no society can long survive which ignores Your guidelines, for the concept of "no rules, no game" is as true in life as it is in football. Help us, Lord, for we are often deceived and misled.
In Jesus' name we pray.
