A Daily Prayer based on Revelation 17 for 7/25/2016

Lord Jesus, I worship you this day as Lord of lords and King of kings. You are the Lamb who will overcome the beast and the kings of the earth who use their authority to make war against you. We know that you use even the unbelieving powers of the world by putting it into their hearts to carry out your purpose. Help us to see your hand in history. I pray in your name for myself and ______________________ , that in you we will overcome all spiritual powers that make war against us and our families. May we always be among those you have called, and may we continue to hear your voice as you speak to us. I pray that our names will be written in the book of life. Inspire us to bear witness to you even when it requires great courage. Keep us from being deceived and becoming intoxicated with the spiritual adultery of the world. May we continually be filled instead with your Holy Spirit so that we will continue to be your called, chosen, and faithful followers. I pray that we will always find great security in having been chosen by you. By your grace and power may we follow you faithfully today and every day. Put it into our hearts to accomplish your purpose until your words are fulfilled. Amen. Revelation 17 The Woman and the Beast 1One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters. 2With her the kings of the earth committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries." 3Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a desert. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. 4The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. 5This title was written on her forehead: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus. 7When I saw her, I was greatly astonished. Then the angel said to me: "Why are you astonished? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast she rides, which has the seven heads and ten horns. 8The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and will come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because he once was, now is not, and yet will come. 9"This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. 10They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for a little while. 11The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction. 12"The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. 13They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. 14They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings--and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers." 15Then the angel said to me, "The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. 16The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to rule, until God's words are fulfilled. 18The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth."

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.
