We are weaker and weaker in our country…foreign countries are threatening in very real ways.   Racist ignorance has been encouraged by leadership and is responsible for the very recent deaths of police and two police who were just assassinated in cold blood.  College kids have suggested a kind of foreign exchange situation … trading Americans for illegal aliens.  We could all go on and on and add to this awful list of things going on in America today under this president’s influence.

So, today, I simply ask for prayers for America.    Could you write one here in COMMENTS?  Would you please keep them civil, powerful and righteous?

“The LORD is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayer of the righteous.” Proverbs 15:29

Please pray for our country.  May this Christmas Season be a time of joy, a time of prayer, a time of healing in honor of His birth.  Help us here with a prayer….

Have a blessed Sunday,  Z

  1. May God (Whose arrival as a man to deliver us from sin and give us liberty we celebrate at this time of year) deliver this country from the strife and stupidity it finds itself in.
    May His people (His Body) rise to direct their fellow countrymen to (and may this nation turn to) Him, the only Hope of deliverance from sin and depravity, Who brings healing in His wings and Who imputes righteousness to those who will receive it.

  2. May God, through the Holy Spirit, touch President Obama’s heart so that he may repent and believe.

  3. You’re a better man than I Dennis.

    Father, as we worship You this Sunday morning, please bring peace and comfort to the families that lost loved ones yesterday, due to the action of a thug that didn’t know the power of love. Be with our leaders, and give them wisdom, and the courage to stand against the evils that perpetuate in our daily lives. And, ditto, to Dennis’ prayer.

  5. Impertinent says:

    Ezekiel 25:17. “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon you.”

    Ed, I think your prayer is wonderful and powerful.

    Dennis…well said. And that he’d believe that God birthed this country and He is the only God, and that all he’s doing to this country is hurting us more than helping; that we have to fight harder against our enemies and stand up for this country and not apologize, not drive her into terrible debt, not allow its children the immorality taught in the name of a kind of freedom not meant for children. .. to allow God’s word in the public square to be chosen or not, but never allowed to be denigrated. To allow true freedom.

    Linda…beautiful. Thank you for that!

    Imp; fabulous scripture for today!

  7. Mustang says:

    Dear Father:

    Give us the wisdom to realize that before we may have Your blessings, we must seek Your forgiveness. Amen.

  8. Kid says:

    I can’t think of anything better than this – http://mrmadison.net/2014/12/21/psalm-28/

    So, I’m a kiss up.

    To which I add – Let the light of honesty and knowledge shine brighter.

  9. Baysider says:

    After reading Mustang’s post I want to copy a reply he said to you, “Lord, may we stop giving you the silent treatment.”

  10. “Please help us bring God back into our schools and the greeting “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays”.

  11. geeez2014 says:

    I got this from someone expecting me to release him and his comment into the GeeeZ family of commenters. I just had to post the comment alone because I think it’s important that we all understand that there are Christians and even non Christians who actually believe this that he said: “Obama has been, by far, a more ‘Christian’ President than the evil duo of Bush/Cheney.”

    They honestly, truly believe that Christianity is nothing but giving to the needy…and that’s it. And they’ll NEVER give Bush/Cheney credit for having done so much against AIDS in Africa (ask Bono how he feels about Bush), and apparently Bush/ Cheney just let people die and starve, right? (Smile).
    They don’t understand the concept of helping people stand on their own by not enabling them and how truly Christian that is; they don’t understand the concept of America being a righteous, amazingly giving nation founded on Judeo-Christian principles and which deserves to be considered exceptional,…there’a terrible “Sweet and Light” concept liberals seem to want to attach to Christianity without any of the repentance involved, none of the true hope involved. See, these same folks will never say that Christ is the savior…trust me, they do not and will not. Quite a sad thing. A real campaign of inaccuracy which leads to less believers and all that implies.

    – January 2011 – After a federal law was passed to transfer a WWI Memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S.

    – February 2011 – Although he filled posts in the State Department, for more than two years Obama did not fill the post of religious freedom ambassador, an official that works against religious persecution across the world; he filled it only after heavy pressure from the public and from Congress.

    – 2010 – While every White House traditionally issues hundreds of official proclamations and statements on numerous occasions, this White House avoids traditional Biblical holidays and events but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays, as evidenced by its 2010 statements on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.

    “Many of these actions are literally unprecedented – this is the first time they have happened in four centuries of American history. The hostility of President Obama toward Biblical faith and values is without equal from any previous American president.”

    obama talks about his muslim faith

    And why would John McCain talk about obama’s Christian Faith?? There would be virtually no reason for obama to utter any of this if he was of Christian Faith.

  13. bunkerville says:

    Almighty God, Who has given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech Thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Thy favor and glad to do Thy will. Bless our land with honorable ministry, sound learning, and pure manners.

    Save us from violence, discord, and confusion, from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitude brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues.

    Endow with Thy spirit of wisdom those to whom in Thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that through obedience to Thy law, we may show forth Thy praise among the nations of the earth.

    In time of prosperity fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in Thee to fail; all of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

    This prayer was not written or delivered by Thomas Jefferson. It is in fact from the 1928 United States Book of Common Prayer. Explanations of the 1928 revision of the Book of Common Prayer make no mention of an earlier source for the prayer,[1] which is identified simply as “For Our Country.”[2]

  14. Impertinent says:

    “The Obama administration denigrates other countries’ religious beliefs as an obstacle to radical homosexual rights.”

    And this is one time where I’d stand behind and support a fatwa issued on his bony arse.

  15. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, oh MAN, do I wish “JAMES” had a website…no URL on his information..just an email and I won’t get into emails with him but I’d copied your whole comment and was about to paste it to his website…but no go! Maybe he will come back, But I’m quite sure it’d be like a cross to a vampire, poor man. I hope I’m wrong but he’s nasty. He’s been by before, I think.

    Of course your comment ROCKS…and the video. HOW SAD the lie is that so many Americans believe Obama…..and on SO MANY things.

    Mal and Bunker….well done.

  16. Kid says:

    Thanks Z, And there have been lots more attacks on Christians by this administration and his evil minions that most of us are aware of..
    Yes Pathetic! Why would mcLame bring up someone’s Christian religion as a political attack in a Christian nation? Man, people are dumb. A $75 value…

    “September 2011 – The Army issues guidelines for Walter Reed Medical Center stipulating that “No religious items (i.e. Bibles, reading materials and/or facts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit.” I didn’t know THIS one. But what Obama has done to the chaplains in the military is horrendous.

    And Mal, I took note that this is the first year I have had NO ONE, nada, zip say “merry christmas” to me in greeting while I’m shopping, and out and about. It’s 100% ‘happy holidays.’ I’ve forgotten to say ‘which holiday did you mean?’ but your post reminds me of my duty, as an ambassador of the lord.

  18. Almost all “Merry Christmas’ s” today.
    one weird exception without even a happy holiday.
