NOTE: When I was emailed with the idea of including a prayer post, I thought it was a great idea! The hope for this prayer and others like it that you might find on this website and receive through subscribing to the email list, is that it will provide the Christian Prepper with a prayer that would start their week or even start every morning or prayer time. Feel free to include your own prayer in the comments if you feel led to. Also, please feel free to forward this link or email to your praying friends!
Dear Heavenly Father,
We praise you and thank you for Your wonderful Salvation and the blood of Your Son Jesus, that cleanses from all sin. We thank You for the cross Lord God, and we thank You for the eternal Truths of Your Word and Your Spirit that leads us into those Truths. Lead us into those truths this day, Lord and give us right discernment of those things that are daily come upon us to terrorize, deceive, beguile, and lead astray.
Father every day we see more and more violence in our land. It’s like watching a pot that is slowly boiling. Each violent bubble rises to the top and bursts; first one then another and another. Oh Lord, how soon before the entire pot grows so violent everything boils over?
We pray for those who have been touched by violence, especially the family and friends of the Marines who were killed in Chattanooga, TN by the madman who followed another god. We hold up the dear ones of those lost and harmed for your special attention, Lord. Please comfort them; send them solace and heal them of their loss, just as we also pray for the killer’s family, that they may see how Christians handle grief, loss and sorrow for such a heinous act and that they turn to You Lord God, for their True salvation. We pray for the peace of Jesus to calm and soothe all those who need rest.
Father, we are reminded again how far we have fallen into apostasy as a nation and ask for Your forgiveness. We pray that all Your people may humble themselves, turn from their wicked ways and seek Your face continuously. We believe Your promise Lord, that if we do this, You will hear our prayers and heal our land.
In Jesus’ Name,
