A Prayer For Emotional Strength

Dear Heavenly Father, 
We ask for your help today.  We live in a world where anything that happens anywhere is visually brought into our homes. We witness the horror of war that takes place on the opposite side of the globe. We see the crying mothers, brothers, sisters and fathers who lose a family member to violence. We empathize with those who experience pain and loss even though we have never met them, speak their language, or live in their country. Our only relation is that we are fellow citizens on planet earth. Help us never become callous to the emotions of others. Give us the emotional strength to maintain compassion and love for all. Help us to be sustainers of civility. Enable us to be a positive support to those in need and enhance your kingdom on earth.

God Is blessing you.   Pastor RAS

Atonement In Jesus

"The Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak."  Mark 14:38b

Dear Lord,
Our nation is lost in secularization. We are consumed with consumption. We are motivated with excess. We are overcome with too much technology while always looking for more. In our quest for improvement nothing is satisfactory. Materialism is necessary for us to live in a material world so help us to manage it in such a way that it does not ensnare us. May we find our fulfillment not in fashion but in faith, not in style but in substance, not in appearance but in aptitude, not in our image but in the image of Jesus. Forgive us for not putting our trust in you before all else. Strengthen our spiritual muscles to lift the burden that you have for our contentment. 
We pray this in your name Lord.

  "My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.  He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world."    1 John 2:1,2

God is blessing you.  He loves you and so do I.

Redeem Our Nation

Dear God, Our Creator, 
 You formed the earth from nothing. You created the heavens with a word. You fashioned the beauty of nature from a command. We pray that you will now take the negative, the ugly and the profane within our country and overshadow it with the positive, the beautiful and the holy to produce a government that is powerful, productive and secure. 
 Like light in a dark room allow your creative power to transform, redeem and resurrect our nation. You can do far more than we can ever even image so we ask you to touch our nation, like you touched a lump of clay and made something great.  Breathe within our nostrils the breath of renewed life and resurrect the United Stated of America like you resurrected the first man.  
In Jesus name,  Amen
