Prayer for Our Leaders

This Letter to God is Letter Five under Letters to God, however I felt that it was so significant that I wanted to put it in this blog and hope you will read, meditate and comment on it.  Thanks.

Read Nehemiah 5:14 and 7:6

 Dear Lord,

 Nehemiah was Your man for the hour in which he lived.  He was a humble leader who did not put himself above his people.  He was a man who put his hope in God rather than wealth and riches.  Our riches are in You.  If men used their wealth to do good deeds with it, how blessed they would be.  Nehemiah taught against the selfish use of personal wealth, and he would not let his enemies side track him.  O Lord, that we too would be dedicated, focused and determined as Nehemiah to continue in Your strength to finish the tasks set before us.  Though the enemy comes and plots against us to take our souls, we will not be discouraged.  Lord, give us godly leaders like Ezra and Nehemiah who were determined to do Your will.  May they be men of integrity who bring honor and glory to God in their position; men who fear God, and not the opinions of other men.  Give us men, Lord, who lead us in Your wisdom, and men who carry their responsibilities through.  O God, we pray that our leaders will no put personal interests and personal gain above the interest of good.  Lord, remind our leaders that they are servants who provide the political and administrative stability of a nation.  Thank You for men who lean on You with courage and who will fight for social, political and religious reforms that we are so desperately in need of.  O God, give us leaders who seek You with the right motives in their hearts.  2 John 2:15 says, “If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  The world’s desires pass away, but the leader or man who does the will of God lives forever.  Amen.

 In prayer,

Ida, Pat, families, households and offspring in all generations.

All glory to God!  Amen.

(Please pass this on to your friends.  Be Blessed.  Thanks.)

The Sword of the Lord

At prayer meeting the Lord reminded me of the song, The Sword of the Lord.  The Sword of the Lord is moving in the camp of the enemy, the sword of the Lord is moving mightily, arise, you are victorious, for the the Sword of the Lord is moving in the camp of the enemy.  Next verse, the Sword of the Lord is moving in the camp of the righteous, that’s us.  Let Him help you with the Sword of the Lord, the Anointed Word of God to cut out the tares that have moved into your field so that you will be victorious.  The enemy is defeated and we win.  We need to look at Matthew 13:25-40 with new eyes.  Let the Holy Spirit show you who and what the tares are in your life.  Sometimes, we keep people and habits in our lived out of guilt, pity or something else, but they are bringing you down.  Yes, we minister to all people, but we are not supposed to hang around and become bosom buddies with all people.  Let God choose your prayer partner, you soul mate, your friends.  My pastor preached a message that reminded me that God wants to bless us in our land, our field, and wants to expand our coasts.  He has promised “rain” on our field that will produce God’s favor.  Pray about this, let Him show you what you need to do to get where He wants you to be.   What are you dealing with today?  Let God help you; let Him equip you and give you the wisdom, the sword of the Lord that you need to take back your land and let it prosper.   I wish you a beautiful, blessed day.

Psalm 3

Sometimes, when problems come, you can’t think beyond the problem, you lose sleep and when you lose sleep the problem becomes bigger.  God has the answer already for us.  No matter who or what is against you, no matter if they say there is no help for you in God, He is still and always will be your shield, He is your glory and the one who lifts up your head. Cry out to the Lord; He hears and answers. He will give you rest and sustaining sleep. Read Psalm 3, meditate on His goodness and willingness to deliver us from the works of the enemy and know that God has defeated the enemy for you. Do not fear, only call on Him, trust Him and He will take care of you.  Praise Him in the midst of your storm, reach out first to God and then to others.   No matter what your circumstances are, God wants to help you.  Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  I know you have questions and problems doing this.   Talk to God, send in your prayer requests and Trust Him always.

He is Our Refuge and Our Shield

I want to encourage you to worship the Lord with all your heart!  Make time everyday for communication with Him.  Meditate on this scripture and be reminded of His love for you. 

“Let all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You and be in high spirits.  For You, Lord, will bless the (uncompromisingly) righteous (him who is upright and in right standing with You); as with a shield You will surround him with good will (pleasure and favor).” Ps. 5:11-12  Amp. 

Lord, help us to remember that You are our covering and that You surround us with a shield.   We will sing to You and shout for joy because You are our refuge.  Amen

Believe His Word and Give Thanksgiving!

God has riches laid up in heaven for you and He wants to bless you according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  He will bless you and provide for you, not because you say so, but because you believe what He said in His Word.  Believe Him, even in the midst of the storm.  He said the flood will not overtake you.  Whatever the flood is in your life today, thank Him because He said He will save you, He will rescue you, He will lift you up and bless you according to His Word.  Praise Him today for what He has done and for what He is doing now.
