A Daily Prayer based on Joshua 22 for 3/27/2017

Lord God, I pray for each of us – for myself and for ______________________ - that we will do all that you direct us to do, as you speak to us through your Spirit and through your chosen servants. I pray that we will not ever desert our brothers in Christ but instead carry out every mission you have given to us. May we serve side by side with our brothers as we engage in spiritual warfare until you give us rest. May we be very careful to keep the commandments you have given us in the Scripture. I pray that we will love you as the Lord our God, walk in all your ways, obey your commands, cling to you, hold fast to you and serve you with all our heart and all our soul. May we be blessed in Jesus' name with prosperity and security. Lord, we read here that civil war nearly broke out in the ancient nation of Israel over a misunderstanding. Please protect all of us from making assumptions and drawing conclusions before we have gotten all the information we need. May we be quick to seek understanding when others do things we do not understand and be slow to criticize and to judge. Protect us in our own families and congregations from internal division and strife that arises through misunderstanding and lack of communication. Please preserve peace and unity in our churches and in our communities and in our land. We pray also for our spiritual unity as a nation. We pray that you will open the eyes of our people to see the dangers of breaking faith with you by going after other gods and other religions. We pray that by the work of your Spirit we will all be careful to observe all the commandments and laws that you have given us in Scripture. May we love you and you alone as the Lord our God and walk in all your ways, cling to you, and serve you with all our heart and with all our soul. May we truly be one nation, under God. This I ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Welcome

Never before in the history of our country has America faced a moral crisis like the one before us today. The foundations of our government are crumbling right before our eyes. Our churches are abandoning God, our families are in shambles. There is only one hope for restoration - the Lord Jesus Christ. If we are to see restoration, it will come only by the grace of God's mercy. We have the assurance of Scripture that "if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us" (1 John 5:14). There is no better way to pray according to the will of God than by praying his own word back to him. These daily prayers are crafted, as much as possible, to incorporate the very words of the Scripture.
