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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Words to Pray By

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are all Americans! We have a right relationship with each other and we have a right relationship with God the Father Almighty because of what His Son, Christ Jesus our Lord has done for us that we could never ever do for ourselves. Amen! Instead of casting doubts and fears about what may happen on election day-2008 and even after election day, we as Americans need to celebrate the fact that we can vote for the candidates of our own choice.

We are not told who to vote for by some military officer. We are not threatened with loss of life, if we do not vote for some dictator. We as Americans have just as many rights and privileges to encourage each other to vote for any candidate that we may endorse. We are free to disagree!

However, we have a patriotic duty and responsibility to vote! We cannot remain "undecided" about any of the people that are seeking public office in the Congress of these United States of America. These people will have the stewardship of this nation and the governing rule of authority over us. We must all pray for them, no matter who gets elected. Hebrews 13:17-25

This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it! Psalm 118:24 Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His Holy Name. For His anger is but for the moment, His favor is for a life time; Weeping may endure for a night, but JOY comes in the morning. Psalm 30:4-5 Heavenly Father, we need You! We trust You with all of our heart! Lord God, FORGIVE us all of our sins of omission and commission; having left undone those things that You have given us to do and doing those things that You instructed us NOT TO DO. Have Mercy upon us, most merciful Lord.

Pardon and Deliver me from the consequences of all my sins in the authority of the name of Christ Jesus my Lord and my Savior.Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart BE always acceptable in Your sight, Oh Lord, my Strength and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14 Yours is the Kingdom that we want to be part of here on earth; Yours is the Power that we need each day to overcome the doubts that are in our minds with the absolute faith that is in our hearts;Yours is the Glory that we give to You by doing what You have created us to do, in obedience to Your Word.Bless the Lord, oh my soul and all that is within me BLESS HIS HOLY NAME!

Bless the Lord, oh my soul and forget not ALL of HIS BENEFITS! Psalm 103:1-2
Amen and Amen!

Prayer from Mark -- In Harmony...

...let GOD know who we want... McCain and Palin 2008.

PSALM 27 A Psalm of David. "THE LORD [is] my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD [is] the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell. Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I [will be] confident. One [thing] I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD. Hear, O LORD, [when] I cry with my voice! Have mercy also upon me, and answer me. [When You said,] "Seek My face," My heart said to You, "Your face, LORD, I will seek." Do not hide Your face from me; Do not turn Your servant away in anger; You have been my help; Do not leave me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation. When my father and my mother forsake me, Then the LORD will take care of me. Teach me Your way, O LORD, And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies. Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries; For false witnesses have risen against me, And such as breathe out violence. [I would have lost heart,] unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!"

Be gracious to us our LORD our GOD. Be gracious to John and Sarah. Grant our humble petition, in JESUS Name, AMEN...

Prayer from Sheila in Gig Harbor, Washington

Dear Lord, Thank You for our wonderful country and for the many who have worked and sacrificed to create her and to keep her safe. I ask Your continued protection for our country during these dangerous times. I pray for our troops and their loved ones and that You comfort the injured and the families and friends of those who have died in battle. I ask that You bring John McCain and Sarah Palin to the White House. I pray that You bring new Republicans into the House and Senate so that President McCain can get the job done that needs to be done. I pray for the safety of our troops around the world and for our continued victory in our war with terrorists, and that You lead us to it's end. I pray that You bring enlightenment and light into the darkness of the minds of the jihadists who have been so indoctrinated and manipulated in their belief system. I thank You for guiding our wonderful President George W. Bush on his difficult journey these past 8 years. He has served our country with every fiber of his being, doing what he knew to be right in spite of the ceaseless and viscous attacks against him by the media and politicians on the left. He has remained steadfast and true in his faith in You and in our country. Thank You for comforting us through him after 9/11 tore our hearts open and connected us all in grief. Please bless him in every way for all the days of his life, and may it be a long and happy one. I ask that You let him know in his heart how beloved he is by many, that the media and the voices of the left that rail against him are not the majority. I ask that You wake people up to the realities of the dangers we are facing in the world before November, so that they may clearly see how important it is that John McCain defeat Obama because John McCain can be the strong leader we need to conquer the evils arrayed against us. I thank You for guiding John McCain to pick Sarah Palin as his running mate. I pray for the Iraqi people, that they find peace together and cast all foreign terrorists from their midst so that our troops can come home. I pray for peace in Afghanistan and Pakistan and that You lead us to victory there by removing the Taliban and Al Qaeda terrorists from the mountains and enclaves from which they wreak such evil acts. I pray that good prevails against evil. I pray that You unite the American people to this cause and bring peace and harmony to all. With love and gratitude, Amen.

A Concerned American Prays...

Almighty God, Heavenly Father, You Who raises up kings and takes them down again, look with mercy and pity upon our country, the United States of America at this time of our greatest need. On behalf of the citizens of this country, we repent of the many national sins we have committed in this land, especially the sins of sodomy and bloodguiltiness (abortion). As much as we may deserve Divine wrath, stay Your Hand in the merits of those who are truly righteous Americans and who have spoken out and worked against these and other evils. You promised Avraham Avinu (Abraham our father) that if he could find ten righteous in Sodom, you would spare that city. We pray that between all the religious Jews and religious Christians in our great land, You may find at least ten righteous in whose merits You may have mercy and decide to spare our land. We pray against Barack Hussein Obama, the evil now facing our nation. Stand in his way, Lord, prevent him from seizing the Office of the President. Punish the corruption, the lies, the vote fraud, all the laws this man and his followers have broken to to illegally steal the highest office of our land. Do not let this punishment come upon us! Almighty God, Master of the Universe, forgive us our national sins, hear our prayer, and heal our land. Amen.

Sparrowgirls Prayer Group

Father God, there are so many souls that are in flux tonight as we approach the day of voting. Some have already voted, and we just pray that they had pure hearts when they made their selections. There are so many people who are to affected by the many people we elect to office. I pray that you are with not only the whole United States of America, but also with those battleground states where the heavy decisions will be made. Amen.

Dear God, we pray for Americans to have good wisdom and judgment when entering the voting booth, we pray so that they can think of you while making their decision and that they realize there is much at stake. Many people have heard Sen Obama's words and tonight saw his infomercial, please allow them to see through the words and into the character of the man. Please give them information and wisdom to make the correct decision. Please open their eyes and help them through this decision. We all here have noticed how he twists the truth and he has a way with words, but please give voters the wisdom and judgment to make the right decision. Amen. Lord, I am praying tonight for Fairness in the Media. We feel that the media is not being fair in covering our candidate John McCain and, as a result, people are uninformed and cannot make a proper decision. We ask you Lord, to expose the hearts of the media, to move their hearts to genuine love of country and their countrymen by renewing within them, a sense of Fairness. Let them no longer have a bias in one direction or another.

We pray for the electorate to care enough, to be informed, to strive for truth as well. The media tries to distort the truth and suppress other truth. Lord, we pray that the hearts of these media people who have so much power, become responsible to their civic trusts. We pray that from now on, they take their responsibilities much more seriously, so as to give fair hearing to our candidates John and Sarah without distortion. We pray that the voters will take their responsibility as citizens seriously and truly vote with the good of the country in their mind. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Dear God, Thank you so much for John McCain and Sarah Palin. We ask that you give them strength, an extra measure of energy, and Your perfect wisdom in the coming days. On election night, give them peace as they anticipate the results of the polls. I pray that you will bring to light anything else that needs to come to light about Obama in these final days before Americans make their final decision on election day. Any that are undecided, guide them to people or information on the internet or in newspapers that will help them make the best choice in this very important election. Please protect John McCain and Sarah Palin and their families. We have seen some very disturbing things taking place during this election, on both sides. I pray for protection over all of our country and that whatever the final result, people will not resort to violence but place their trust in You and Your will. In Jesus name, Amen.

Lord, we ask for your loving hand to be over the states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Nevada, N. Hampshire, Florida, N. Mexico, N. Carolina, Colorado, and Virginia. We ask for your love to be showered over the people of these states as you bring forth the prayer warriors that are praying through the election. That through turning our eyes to you that you will not turn from us. We feel so strongly that your favor is on this election result. Keep the candidates strong and healthy, free from distraction so that they might do your will. Please let those of us who have been called to volunteer either vocally or silently to do your will that will glorify you and lift you up, as all praise is due to you and you alone. Amen.

Prayers Offered By Sparrowgirls' Prayer Group

Dear God... I praise you tonight for your faithfulness through good times and bad in our great country...Father, I place my trust in You. For our country, our people, the affairs of the nation. You are worthy of all trust, Father, we thank you for all the blessings you've given us, both seen and unseen, you are so good to usI pray tonight that...God takes care of us and gives us the help John McCain and Sarah Palin overcome the great odds......and if we are successful...I promise to get religion - honestly and not jokingly.

Lord, we confess as a nation that we have sinned in many areas. We are not perfect as a nation or as individuals. We ask for your forgiveness. We need revival in America and true repentance in the hearts of your people all across our land. Lord we have not kept your ways. We have turned to false idols. We worship flesh and material goods more than we worship you. Father, we are so selfish in so many ways, and it must cause your heart to break when we do not listen carefully to your direction and choose to do for ourselves. Please forgive us for our selfish ways and choosing to do for ourselves, instead of depending on your loving guidance.Thank you, dear God, for America. Thank you for the leadership you gave us in President Bush for these past eight years. Even though many in our country have not agreed with him on many things, I am thankful that he was our leader during the horrible tragedy of 9/11. Thank you for the men and women serving our country in the military to preserve our freedom and to help others gain freedom. May many Iraqi's come to know You and spiritual freedom through the political freedom they now have. Lord from north to south, from east to west you have given us such a beautiful country, full of bounty and promise. The people you have chosen to come here have all come with dreams. Each group has contributed to our great nation. Lord we ask you to bless us and make us right again. To become your people again.

Thank you, dear God, for America. I am so thankful for your Word because it is good and always true. I thank you for those you've brought to the forefront to serve our country and its people, to try to bring order back to this chaos. We thank you for the service in John McCain and for his family who stands strongly behind him. We also thank you for bringing Sarah and her family to the call. We are so grateful for those who have also heard the call to serve, be it the military or the media to bring us the truth. Make them strong to bear the brunt of evil that comes up against them. We thank you for your Heavenly Guard that protects us night and day.

Lord, I pray for this election. This is a difficult time for us, for our country. We have experienced a lot during President Bush's term, and we know the challenges that face our next Commander-in-Chief. Ultimately, we pray for Your will to be done. And if it is Your will, we pray for success for John McCain and Sarah Palin. We have observed over the campaigning season the ways of all candidates on both tickets. We believe that John McCain and Sarah Palin are what our country needs at this moment in our history. We believe that their policies on certain issues honor You. We believe that they will bring a breath of fresh air to Washington and hold the politicians there accountable to do the job that they have been elected to do. Please give all voters wisdom when they enter the voting booth to truly make the best decision for this country. Bring to their minds anything that might help them make that decision. I pray especially for all of the battleground states.... Lord, I beg you, that against all odds, our people will realize that they are about to embark on a dangerous course for our country. One that may bring them closer to godlessness. They will rend our nation. Evil nations will seize upon our weakness. Lord I ask for your protection for our great land. We have such fine people as John and Cindy, Sarah and Todd who want to protect Your beautiful America. Before it is too late, cause the hearts of Your people to come to a right judgement. Lord, there are times when to heal us, You have to break us. Please give us the strenght to withstand this. Please do not let us descend into godless communism. But Your will be done, Lord. We meekly submit ourselves to Your hand. But with all my heart, I pray for America. Please Lord, grant us the grace of good judgment. Please let us continue as one nation under YOU. Father, it is with Your guidance that You bring us together in support of one another, just as You did the early Christians in their despair when Your Son was crucified on the cross. You nurtured them, led them to hear the words that had been softly spoken in their ear when they walked with Christ during His ministry. I ask of you Lord, to please continue to nurture us, let that small voice become louder in our ear so that we do not fear to stand together as a nation who is ever so grateful for what we have worked so much to strengthen. Please be with us, surround us all with protection on these long nights before Nov. 4th. Please let blind eyes be open, deaf ears opened to hear that the choice they are making will be so strong of an impact on not only us, but nations throughout the world. May we continue to bring honor and glory and praise to Your Holy Name.

Please bless President Bush and thank you, Lord, for giving us this fine man during these crisis years. He has had quite the burden. So many times I have thanked You for giving us President Bush at a time like this. Keep us strong in the days ahead. In Jesus Name, Amen. Yes, Lord. Thank you for Your church...People who love You and seek to honor You and to live a life that is pleasing before you...Thank you for our country's Christian principles on which we were founded. I pray that Your church will stand strong for You once again in this election. I pray that we will be a light to others and be unified in our efforts. I pray that the purpose You had for America when she was born will be fully realized....I know that You had something special in mind when America was born. Despite what some are saying about America's "image" in the world, America has always stood with Israel...I pray that this will continue through the next Presidency. I pray that Your church will be strengthened through this election and that America will continue to do the good in the world that we are known for doing, yet, as John McCain has pledged, that we will not just give so much of the resources You have entrusted to us to countries that HATE us and want to destroy us. America must stay strong to fulfill the purpose you have for her. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Sunday Prayer -- Please Keep In Mind

Matthew 22: 34 - 40

"But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sad'ducees, they came together. And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, to test him. Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law? And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets."

Dearest Father who is always Just and who is slow to anger and merciful to all who seek you. Look not upon our sins but hear our prayer for Senator John McCain and Gov. Sarrah Palin that our country choose rightly in this election and that your will be done. We ask heavenly Father that you give unto our Country change for the good and we trust in you. Regardless of the outcome of this election, we will has a people, strive to live by these words of your beloved son. For the sake of his sorrowful passion, have mercy on us all and on the whole world.


No idle word should be uttered. I understand a word to be idle when it serves no good purpose, either for myself or for another, and was not intended to do so.

-- St. Ignatius of Loyola

The highest degree of meekness consists in seeing, serving, honoring, and treating amiably, on occasion, those who are not to our taste, and who show themselves unfriendly, ungrateful, and troublesome to us.

-- St. Francis de Sales

God's Plan: William's Prayer for All

Be compassionate, care for others, treat others fairly, study Scripture, apply the teachings of Jesus in your life, search for God in difficult times & good, help the needy & your health will return, feed the hungry & God will Bless you, give the hurting attention & you will be lifted up, seek to do right, seek truth but be graceful with it, help others in humilty, not to gain recognition, with a humble heart seek God's will for your life.

Let the light of Jesus encompass you. Love others even when they dont love you back. Do you know what God's plan is for your life? The plain teachings of Scripture is for us to give glory to The Lord, & to be a witness to a lost & dying world. Finding God's plan for your life is realizing how to be a witness, as we all have different gifts. The fruit of the Righteous is a tree of life, & he who is wise wins souls.

Proverbs 11:30 -- Let the hope of Christ return fill your heart, & start by praying to the Lord that he come into your heart to reign supreme, to forgive you of your sins, confess that you believe Jesus lived, died, & rose again that you would be freed from the bondage of sin & believe with all of your heart that he is now King of your life. Amen.

If you prayed this prayer & believe it with all of soul, you are now a new creature, start by going to a Gospel believing church & reading the Holy Bible.

Sunday Night Prayer from Mark

Many people awake and about... Since we stir, let us stand...

Father, we are so greatful that you have given us a choice for president that looks unto you. For the McCain and Palin family and those who stand with them - we ask for supernatural strength, wisdom and courage...

Let not the anger get the best of us, I stand in the thoughts of Inchristalonewilliam, and I agree.

Hebrews 12:1 -3 says - "THEREFORE we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares [us,] and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of [our] faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls."

We stand united in this promise, knowing that this crowd of witnesses not be weighed down, through the carelessness of sin, but be encouraged by those who stand as our candidtates, outnumbered by 'polls' that means nothing - because you triumphed over evil using only two sticks and three nails.

UNDERDOGS - UNITE... Let us no longer be the UNDER DOG but be UNDER GOD instead... IN GOD WE TRUST...

In JESUS Name, AMEN...

Sunday Prayer from Deborah, Ohio

Dear Heavenly Father,
I humble myself today and ask for your divine wisdom in this upcoming election. I pray for grace and patience as we move towards Nov 4. We as a nation are so divided and I pray for your hand to touch each of us so that we can come from a place of love not fear. Father, we need a miracle! Please give John McCain and Sarah Palin the right words to say so that America can hear the truth and know in their heart that McCain and Palin is the right choice for America.

Our country was founded on Judeo Christian beliefs and I feel that it is being threaten. I want to be able to worship you and practice my beliefs. I pray that our core values and principles of our nation remain intact. I pray for peace and brotherhood with all men. I pray that we all get it, father. We need pure understanding. For the first time in my life I fear oppression of free speech. I ask that you guide all of us in the coming days and give us the strength and words to be able to combat the naysayers. I pray for your will to be done and I am so grateful for your love and support in my own life. Father, I give my life to you and want to follow your wishes not my own. Please give America the direction that you will have her take. Put the people in my life that will serve your purpose and your will. I thank you for allowing me to be part of a plan that is for the better good. My life is great because of you. Thank you for giving me such wonderful friends and a business relationship that is far better then I ever imagined. " where 2 or 3 are gathered together there am I in the midst of them."

Sunday Prayer from Ohio

Heavenly Father,

I pray for the nation today and for all the adversity that surrounds us. I ask for your hand to be placed on the upcoming election.

Father, only you know our hearts and our true desires. I pray for each and every American as they go to the voting booth that they would call on you for guidance. I pray that Americans hearts and ears be open to the truth.

I pray for John McCain and Sarah Palin as they need your strength to get through the next few days. Please surround them with your light and love and protect them from harm. I ask you to give them the right words to say so that American can hear the truth.

I also pray for Barack Obama that you would touch his heart and make him realize that he needs to speak the truth. Father convict his heart and bring him to his knees. I ask for your hand to protect him from harm.

Father, I thank you for giving us freedom and for all the wonderful gifts you have given us.

In Jesus Name, Amen!

Sunday Prayer from Sharon, Oklahoma

Father, We pray for our great nation. "one nation under God" Founded by your providential will...........a nation that has grown and prospered in spite of our sin, and rebellion.

We pray that your "people who are called by your name will humble themselves, and pray, and seek your face, and turn from their wicked ways, and that you will hear us, forgive our sin, and will heal our land". II Chron.7: 14

We pray for our leaders who want to uphold our constitution as it was intended by our forefathers. That you will protect them and keep them "under the shadow of the Almighty"

That we once again will unashamedly call on you for our wisdom, strength, forgiveness, cleansing.

That we will once again believe that you are fighting our battles as you did for the Israelites in th Old Testament.

That we will call on you to show us our own wickedness outside of Christ, and repent as a nation.

That we will repent for the backsliding of our nation, that you might hear us and forgive us.

That your Word will once again be our guide of what is right and wrong, of what we need and don't need.

That all of our inalienable rights are written in your Word and some are written in "The Declaration of Independence" ie. "that all men (including women and children) have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Our first and most important right and freedom is to worship God.

Our sole purpose, both here and throughout eternity, is to glorify God and to enjoy Him.
We pray that you by your grace will show each of us your plan to glorify your self through us as a nation and individually, and also as the church, your bride. Amen

Sunday Prayer from Ohio

With a concentration on GOD'S Word respecting the sanctity of life... Let's Pray,

LORD, As we stand here in Your awesome presence - there stands before two choices; before this country who professes to TRUST in You; A man of integrity - who has choosen a counterpart of like mind - who demostrate a sincere belief in YOU - and the latter, a man who says he belongs to You - but his heart remains far off from You. He does not hold the sancitity of life dear, he does not take into consideration what You have said regarding INFANTS. His counterpart whom he has chosen questions his own ability to lead LORD...

It bothers us LORD, that Satan has blinded the minds of those unbelieving into raising this man up as a leader, when his track record is well established as a FOLLOWER...

Hold true to your word Father at PSALM 119:126 - "[It is] time for [You] to act, O LORD, [For] they have regarded Your law as void. "

Let the truth be established at PROVERBS 25:19 - "Confidence in an unfaithful [man] in time of trouble [Is like] a bad tooth and a foot out of joint."

Do not Let the United States be brought down as in Ecclesiates 8:9 - "All this I have seen, and applied my heart to every work that is done under the sun: [There is] a time in which one man rules over another to his own hurt."

Let us stand in your presence and proclaim... 1 John 5:4 - " For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world--our* faith."
Keep us faithful and hear our prayer on behalf of John McCain and Sarah Palin...

In JESUS Name, AMEN...

Mark, Ohio
