June 29: A Prayer for Our Disabled Veterans

Most Holy Father, thank You for all of our disabled veterans. We thank You for their unstoppable spirit and loyal service to The United States of America. Thank You for Your hand of grace which has preserved their lives. What awesome miracles You perform for Your people! Our lives are in Your hands and You keep our feet from stumbling. You have tested us and purified us like silver. We glorify Your wonderful Name. Your faithfulness to Your children is never-ending. We are grateful to belong to You. Your salvation surrounds us like city walls and praise flows from the lips of all those who enter Your presence. You are our everlasting light and glory.

Almighty Father, we decree that the disabled veterans in our Church Family are the apple of Your eye. You are faithful to them and have delivered them from the wicked with Your sword. We confess that they are Your treasured ones whose hunger You always satisfy. We declare that their children have plenty and they will leave an inheritance for their descendants. We decree that when our disabled veterans are surrounded by troubles, You will protect them from the anger of their enemies. The power of Your right hand saves them. We declare that You will work out Your plans for their lives. Because of Your faithful, enduring love they are never abandoned, for you made them. It was nobody but You who redeemed their lives and snatched them from the power of the grave. We declare over them that despite physical loss, they are overwhelmingly victorious through Christ, who loves them. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither their fears for today nor their worries about tomorrow – not even the powers of hell can separate them from Your love, Father.

Holy Spirit, I commit to pray for the needs of the following disabled veterans today:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, please encourage and uplift the hearts of those disabled veterans who feel lost, unappreciated, and rejected. Save those who don’t know the Lord Jesus in the pardon of their sins. Please help our Church Family to embrace our disabled veterans with love and honor for their sacrifices on our behalf. Help us to incorporate them into the ministry, encouraging them to use their gifts to Your glory. We ask you to lead and guide President Barack Obama, and our military and congressional leaders to develop and implement effective programs that will aid in sheltering our homeless veterans, providing proper mental and physical healthcare to them, and supplying them with fair funding for their continued education. Let the peace that comes from Christ rule in the hearts of our disabled veterans.  May they always be thankful. Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill their lives.

Gracious Father, forgive the sins of our disabled veterans. Forgive those who are so scarred with disappointment and confusion that they reject Your love. Forgive those who have not been obedient to follow the instructions of their physicians. Forgive them for purposely neglecting their mental and physical health needs. Forgive those of us, Lord, who have ignored and abandoned our disabled veterans. Forgive us for not honoring them for their service to our nation. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our disabled veterans of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help our disabled veterans not to yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Magnificent Lord, You are a warrior. Yahweh is Your name! Your right hand is glorious in power. It smashes the enemy. In the greatness of Your majesty, You overthrow those who rise against You. The strong right arm of the Lord is raised in triumph. The strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

November 15: A Prayer for Our U.S. Military Personnel

Heavenly Father, we thank You for our U.S. Military personnel.  We thank You for blessing our armed forces throughout history. We thank You for making our nation a mighty power in the world. Thank You for our men and women who are returning home from Iraq.  Lord, we praise and honor Your Name. Your Name is the Lord and we rejoice before You.  You have been our home through all the generations.  We praise You, the God of Israel, who lives from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and amen!  O Lord, what a variety of things You have made.  In wisdom, You have made them all.  The earth is full of Your creatures.  Lord, You are a faithful, loving and compassionate God and we bless You.

 

Righteous Father, we declare that You are the light and salvation of our military personnel; they will not be afraid. You are their fortress and their protection from danger; they will not tremble. Any enemy or foe who comes to attack them will stumble and fall. Our soldiers will trust in You with all of their hearts and they will not depend on their own understanding. They will seek Your will in all that they do, and we know that You will show them which path to take. We declare that our military personnel are blessed and highly favored. They will submit themselves to God, resist the devil and he will flee from them. With the authority given to us, we cancel the assignment of anxiety, depression, anger, fear and confusion and declare that no weapon formed against them will prosper. We command God’s order to prevail within the Veteran Affairs system.

 

List the name(s) of the active or inactive military veteran(s) you know and insert their name(s) in the prayer:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Worthy Father, please continue to provide for the families of those soldiers who have been deployed to war.  Holy Spirit, help our veterans who have returned home to process all they have experienced. Heal any physical and emotional wounds. Please help them with their familial, social, and professional relationships.  Lord, we ask that the wait times for appointments at the VA Hospital will be shortened and that each veteran will be treated with dignity and respect.  Holy Spirit, please give our government officials the wisdom on how to cut down on the red tape that ensnares so many veterans from receiving all of the benefits they are entitled to.  As a nation, help us to not overlook or discount the sacrifices our military veterans have made for the freedom of our nation.

 

Forgiving Father, please forgive our active and inactive military personnel for their sins.  Forgive them for lying, cheating, stealing, slander, strife, malice, envy, jealousy, selfishness, disobedience and rebellion.   Forgive our nation for hypocrisy, slander, greed, racism, injustice, elitism, hatred, and violence.  Father, forgive the media for misrepresenting the truth.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed.)  Holy Spirit, remind our active and inactive military personnel of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive.  (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help our active and inactive military personnel to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Lord, You reign.  You dwell between the cherubim; let the earth be moved.  You are great in Zion and high above all people.  Your name is so great and awesome.  You are Holy.  Yours is the kingdom, the power and glory, forever.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for U.S. Military Personnel and Allies

A Prayer for U.S. Military Personnel and Allies

Scripture Reading:  

Psalm 89:11-18, Psalm 91

Reflections of the Heart::

Our U.S. military personnel and allies have been fighting courageously for our freedom.  The least we can do for them is to pray!  Let us remember the sacrifices of our military personnel and allies in our daily prayers.

 

Scriptural Prayer

Heavenly Father, we praise and honor Your Name.  Your Name is the Lord and we rejoice before You.  Blessed are You, Lord God of Israel, who lives forever from everlasting to everlasting.  What a variety of things You have made.  In wisdom You have made them all.  The earth is full of Your creatures.  Lord, we thank You for our U.S. military personnel and allies.  We thank You for protecting our armed forces throughout history.   Thank You for exposing evil plots to destroy the United States.  We thank You for blessing our nation to be a mighty power in the world.  Lord, You are a faithful, loving and compassionate God and we bless You.

Father, do not be silent, deaf or quiet.  Don’t You hear the tumult of Your enemies and see what they are doing?  They have devised crafty schemes and plans against Your people; they conspire against Your precious ones.  Father, the enemy says, “Come let us wipe out Israel as a nation.  We will destroy the very memory of its existence.”  Lord, this is their unanimous decision.  They have signed a treaty as allies against You.  Father, as a nation we are trusting in You and we are looking to You to deliver our military personnel and our allies from evil.  We are depending on You to rescue them from evil people and preserve them from those who are violent, those who plot evil in their hearts and stir up trouble all day long.  Their tongues sting like a snake; venom as a viper drips from their lips.  Lord, by the authority You have given to us, we command peace to be still in the earth.  By faith, we are expecting peaceful resolutions throughout the world.  Let God arise and His enemies be scattered.

List the name of a  U. S. military  person who has served or is presently serving our country.  Call or send a note to thank him or her today:

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

Father, Lord of Heaven’s armies, we ask You to deal with our nation’s enemies, both inside and outside of our borders.  Holy Spirit, expose every plot before any destruction occurs.  Touch the hearts of our allies to stand strong with our nation.  Increase the courage and strength of our servicemen and women as they continue to fight courageously in battle. Father, we ask You to protect them and their families.    Please protect innocent citizens during this time.  Let Your favor surround our nation like a shield.  Give our President, his administration, leaders of the U.S. Armed Forces and our allies increased wisdom and discernment.  Holy Spirit, we ask You to intervene and confuse the enemy.  Please clear the way so that the Gospel is preached throughout the world.  Father, as Your Gospel goes forth, touch the hearts of the unsaved to receive it.  Lord, we ask You to continue to provide basic needs for our military personnel, allies and their families.

Father, please forgive our military personnel and allies for their sins.  Forgive them for lying, cheating, stealing, slander, strife, malice, envy, jealousy, selfishness, disobedience, and rebellion and any abuses of war.   Forgive our nation for hypocrisy, slander, greed, racism, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, injustice, elitism, hatred, and violence.  Forgive the media for misrepresenting the truth.  Forgive us for not praying for local, national, and world leaders, especially President Bush and his administration.  Holy Spirit, touch the hearts of our military personnel and allies to forgive others; and help them to forgive.

Lead all our military personnel and allies not into temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Lord, You are King.  You sit on Your throne between the cherubim; let the whole earth quake.  You sit in majesty in Jerusalem, supreme above all the nations.  Your Name is so great and awesome.  You are Holy.  Yours is the kingdom, the power and glory, forever.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
