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,
Lord, as Creator of all things we know you see us and know our thoughts, our words and our deeds. You know what we do in private when we think no one is looking. It is sobering to know that you read our hearts. It is even more sobering to know that despite what You know, You still love us.
Father, we are in the midst of a societal upheaval that threatens us in a way that only pure evil could devise and implement. We are beginning to see the scabs of old wounds get ripped off and the mask of tolerance come away to reveal the ugliness of people and all sins exposed.
Like Elijah, many of your remnant are confused, sad and depressed to learn that so many of our friends, neighbors and co-workers, who we once believed thought kindly of us and our faith, in reality do not love You or believe in You and in fact, hate You. And that hatred is now being openly visited on us. Although You told us in advance to expect this, we grieve that it has come to this, especially to this country. Lord, we pray for our lost country on this remembrance of Her founding.
Father God, we ask you to change us, to help us conform more to the spirit of Jesus so we can minister clearly, honestly, soberly, morally and lovingly to those who hate You; to those who are lost. Help us develop a humble and patient spirit in the face of the evil onslaught, so that we better reflect Your light shining in the darkness. Strengthen us for this battle Lord, as we put on Your whole armor, the victory be Yours.
Lord we ask for the loosing of the Holy Spirit throughout our land to bring home all the strays from Your sheepfold. We ask You to bind the efforts of our enemies who seek nothing less than to remove Your name from above all names and to slaughter your sheep. We take comfort in knowing this will never be accomplished because You are God Almighty, who already told us how this will all end, according to Your Sovereign Will.
In Jesus’ Name
