We praise you for your love this morning. Your love that never fails. We praise you for your faithfulness. It is new every morning. And it is new again today. We praise you for your goodness. You’re a good good Father. Oh yes! You are. Even in these trying days and troubling times. You save. Heal. Deliver. Forgive. Restore. You are good!
We ask you once again. Most Merciful Father. Forgive us our sins. They are many as a nation. As the church. As individuals. Forgive us! Oh Merciful One.
We cry out to you. Oh Father. Like the psalmist David. Listen to my prayer, O God. Do not ignore my cry for help! Please listen and answer me. I am overwhelmed by my troubles. My enemies shout at me, making loud and wicked threats. They bring trouble on me and angrily hunt me down.
My heart pounds in my chest. The terror of death assaults me. Fear and trembling overwhelm me, and I can’t stop shaking. Oh, that I had wings like a dove; then I would fly away and rest! I would fly far away to the quiet of the wilderness. How quickly I would escape far from this wild storm of hatred.
Oh Father. Your Word speaks to us. Your Word stands true. From age to age. It is still the same. It does not change. It is hope and help. You do not change. You are the one constant in the ever changing turmoil that is whirling and swirling through America. Thank you! Oh Merciful One! Thank you that we can always depend on you.
We declare your Word over our enemies! In Jesus name! Confuse them, Lord. And frustrate their plans. For I see violence and conflict in the city. Its walls are patrolled day and night against invaders, but the real danger is wickedness within the city. Everything is falling apart; threats and cheating are rampant in the streets.
We declare victory over our enemies. In the mighty name of Jesus. We declare over satan. The evil one. The old slew foot. The accuser. We are aware of your schemes! Almighty Lord of the Angel Armies! Confuse them! Frustrate them! Cause them to stumble and fall! Chase them out with your mighty warring angels! Chase them down to the pit of destruction!
We rise up! We rise up as your people in this epic battle of good and evil over America and this President. We rise up and call on the name of the Lord who is mighty to save us. Come and rescue us! Come and heal us! Come and deliver us! Rise up! Oh! Church of the Living God. Rise up and stand! Armored up and prayed up. Rise up and walk into your destiny!
We call on you Lord in the morning, noon and night. We know you hear us. You will rescue us from our enemies. You have ransomed us and we are yours. Even though the battle rages and we want to fly away to rest. You will strengthen us. You will empower us. You will keep us from falling. We will not bend. We will not bow.
In Jesus name. Amen.
