Sparrowgirls Lifts John and Sarah

Dear God,

The LORD is Sarah's light and her salvation -- whom shall she fear? The LORD is the stronghold of her life -- of whom shall she be afraid? When evil men advance against her to devour her flesh, when her enemies and her foes attack her, they will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege her, her heart will not fear; though war break out against her, even then will she be confident.

One thing she asks of the Lord, this is what she seeks: that she may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of her life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep her safe in his dwelling; he will hide her in the shelter of his tabernacle and set her high upon a rock. Then her head will be exalted above the enemies who surround her; at his tabernacle will she sacrifice with shouts of joy; she will sing and make music to the Lord.

Hear her voice when she calls, O Lord; be merciful to her and answer her. Her heart says of you, "Seek his face!" Your face, Lord, she will seek. Do not hide your face from her, do not turn yur servant away in anger, you have been her helper. Do not reject her or forsake her, O God her Savior. Though her father and mother forsake her, the Lord will receive her.

Teach her your way, O Lord; lead her in a straight path because of her oppressors. Do not turn her over to the desire of her foes, for false witnesses rise up against her, breathing out violence. She is still confident of this: She will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Amen, and for John, too, Lord.

ADORATION
Dear Heavenly Father. We adore you. You are so mighty and powerful, and yet you long for us to approach you. You have no need of our adoration, but as it says in the Bible, you delight in the sons of men. Lord, we are so happy to be in your presence. We are filled with light as we contemplate you in your holy temple. Open our hearts to your presence and your Holy Spirit tonight. We know how much you love us and want us to be happy and to be holy. Thank you Lord for always being faithful. Amen

CONFESSION
Lord, we come to you on bended knee and with humble hearts as we look to your favor. You are always so loving, blessing us even though we are so undeserving. We ask your forgiveness for those words or thoughts that were hurtful in your eyes. As you love others, so must we love them, no matter how much our emotions are stirred from the news that surrounds us like bees of a hive. Please have mercy on us, Lord Jesus. We love you and only wish to please you. Please, we beg of you to put your Light in our hearts so that we might not be sinful in your eyes with thoughts, words or deeds. Have mercy on us, please forgive us. Amen.

THANKSGIVING
Dear Heavenly Father, we want to give you this thankful prayer. We thank you so much for giving us Your Son. You are our only salvation. We thank you for this wonderful country based on Christian principles, and we pray that we will Do Your Will on election Day. We thank you for the result you will deliver to us. We know that Your will be done, and we love you and praise your name always. Thank you for our lives and our families. Thank you for John McCain and Sarah Palin in this time of our countries need. We praise you and thank you for all of the ground swell that we feel in this election. Thank you for this wonderful group of women who love you and support one another. Thank you for the fire in our bellies and the opportunity to spread you Word during this tough time. Thank You ThankYou ThankYou. In Jesus name, Amen.

SUPPLICATION
Father, I ask for your peace to rule and reign in the hearts of your people. I plead the blood of Jesus over the sins of our nation and its people. Thank you for its cleansing power that enables us to receive your blessings. May hope and faith rise up in our hearts. May your Spirit impress your children regarding the importance of this election. Guide us in paths of righteousness for your name's sake. Consider the meditations of our hearts in the matter of this election. Hear our prayer, O Lord. Amen.

CLOSING PRAYER
God grant John, Sarah, the u.s. citzens of America and I the serenity to accept the things we cannot change; This verse just came to mind. The eyes of the Lord run to and fro over the whole earth to show himself strong on behalf of them whose hearts are perfect toward him.courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Amen and now a reading from Proverbs 3, 5-6: Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths. Amen.

May this prayer also go out to Sarah, John and all Americans.
