[Beginning 9/25, and continuing through Election Day, November 3rd, Give Him 15 is joining forces with many other national prayer ministries in 40 Days of Prayer for America. Lisa Crump, Vice President of Volunteer Mobilization, National Day of Prayer, provides today’s prayer focus.]
“This year, namely this spring and summer, has been a time like no other. Much of the Bible has come alive before our very eyes and ears. Scriptures about lawlessness, pestilence, God giving people over to their own devices (Psalm 81:12), what is evil being called good and what is good being called evil have taken on fuller meaning.
“But have you found your way to flourish spiritually in this year? Personally, I confess moments when I was in despair. Yet, the Lord is great in faithfulness, relentless to rescue and to save. Maybe you are like me, and you have learned a steady diet of the daily dose of ‘bad news’ doesn’t feed the heavenward soul. The good news of the gospel always saturates in His presence and peace. Basking in passages of worship and adoration prayer like Revelations 4 and 2 Chronicles 29:10-13 with King David’s prayer have kept the focus on the great I AM. Let’s go together to fresh depths of worship where we are warriors with the Lord of Hosts. Let’s ask the Lord to show us how He is working and deploying the armies of heaven coming to aid in literally pushing and holding back the lies, the deception, the fear, and the dismay. Worship Him! His glory will invade our senses, soul, and flesh, igniting adoration and alignment with His call in our appointed days.”
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.” (Revelation 4:11b; NIV)
Points for Prayer (By, Lisa Crump):
Before we raise our head for the day, let us linger in awe of the Lord: eternal, steadfast, everlasting love, faithfulness, forgiving, protector, comforter, and more.
Before we drift to slumber each evening, let us recount answers to prayer. Let us meditate in the fact that every day is bringing us closer to the Lord’s return. He hasn’t changed.
Worship Him. Worship disarms the enemy and enforces our rightful place as His children.
Just say the Name of Jesus, over and over.
Meditate on His free gift and smile with joy at the gift that cannot be taken away.
A Prayer You Can Pray:
Lord, You are Wonderful, Counselor, Prince of Peace, Almighty God. You are eternal, knowing the end from the beginning. You are steadfast, everlasting, never changing, and our strong high tower. We are safe in Your love and faithfulness. You are our salvation, always forgiving, and You are our Comforter when we are hurting. You are God Most High, the Maker of the heavens and the earth. You are so worthy of our worship. How can we not be thankful in exalting Your name, Jesus?
We will wake up and praise You. We will fall asleep praising You. We will worship all through our day. Our gratitude will rise up to You as incense, Lord, for You care so deeply for us. You have worked miracles on our behalf, some of which we will never know this side of heaven. You provide all that we lack. You heal us when the enemy has attempted to traumatize us through attack, pain, and loss. We can imagine his dismay when we are able to look to You and worship You in the middle of his attacks. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, how wonderful Your name is! Fill us with Your great joy and may the enemy never be able to steal it from us! Amen.
Let the nation benefit from our worship! To God be all our glory, exaltation, and honor!
