Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word of truth and for the nation of Israel, through whom came the promised Seed - the Lord Jesus, our promised Saviour and God. We thank You that there has always been a small remnant of Israel, who never doubted Your words and through whose faithfulness we received the holy Scriptures, and were taught the truth of the gospel of grace. Thank You that none of Your blood-bought children will have to face the wrath of God in the coming time of great tribulation, but that we are hidden in Christ, and are not appointed to suffer Your wrath. May we live and work for Your praise and glory, and we pray that many Jews and Gentiles, who have not yet trusted in Christ, will come to faith in the days ahead, and escape the wrath that is to come - This we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Zephaniah 2:3
Loving Lord, I come to You to place the once great nation of United States of America at Your feet, knowing that our great country and it's constitution was made for a moral and religious people and is wholly inadequate for any other form of government, and yet we have strayed so far from the principles and practices of our great founders, who drew up our constitution based on Your Word.
But Lord, although this was once the land of the brave and the home of the free, sadly there is so much that is wrong with our country that I fear for its future. Lord, as a people we have walked away from You and discredited Your holy name by the way that we have conducted ourselves over the past few years and there is no health in our land.
Look down in pity on our people and our land, and protect us from those that seem determined on destroying our nation. Send Your Spirit I pray, through the land of America, and touch the hearts of all those that are called by Your name to plead on behalf our people. Convict those that are damaging our infrastructure and as a nation may we turn away from our wicked ways and return You to Your rightful position, in integrity and truth.
I ask this in Jesus' name,
