Prayer for America ~ 2016

Our Father, reigning in Heaven
Creator and Holy God
We come before Your throne
Humbled and on our knees 

Lord, we plead for our nation
Praying that You would intervene
That You would send peace and calmness
Where there is anger and rage
That You would send patience and hope
Where there is impulsiveness and fear
That You would touch and soften the hearts of people
Who have hardened their hearts toward You and others
That You would open our eyes, ears, and minds
To see, hear, and help those who are in need
To stop focusing on ourselves and reach out to our neighbors
To speak words of encouragement rather than criticism
And replace name-calling and rebellion with grace and love 

Lord, we confess our sins and unrighteousness
We plead for Your forgiveness
Which You made possible through Jesus, Your One and Only Son

You have blessed us with a great responsibility
The opportunity of having a noble nation
Help us be a people of integrity, obedient to Your instruction
We ask for Your wisdom and guidance, discernment and discretion
And may we choose to live for You alone

Above all else, we pray that You would be honored and glorified
And that Your will would be done in America
Through the most powerful Name of Jesus we pray
Amen

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used offensively to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems/song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website may always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
