Prayer for Nations and Leaders


Psalm 2:8

Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance,

and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

Father you urge us to pray for all people. We intercede on their behalf to give thanks for them. We ask you to help all government leaders and those in authority. May they live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. Lord you are the God of our fathers and you alone are the God in heaven. The kingdoms of this earth are under your rule. You are powerful and mighty and no one can stand against you.

We are your people who are called by your name. We humble ourselves to pray and seek your face. We turn from our wicked ways so you will hear our cry in heaven. Thank you for forgiving our sins and restoring our land to righteousness. The earth is the Lords and everything in it, the world and all its people belong to you. You ask us to remember Israel and pray that they be saved and to pray for peace. You take great delight in Israel. We pray for every nation, tribe and tongue of the earth.

Your word says that when there is moral rot within a nation, its government is easily toppled. When the wicked are in power, the people groan. We pray for wise and knowledgeable leaders. When the godly are in authority there is stability and the people rejoice. Blessed and great is the nation who has a god near to them as the Lord our God. You are near us whenever we call on you. You are the Lord God both in heaven and on earth and there is none other.

We are a people of this nation who know their God, so we are strong and will resist the enemy. Set us apart as holy to you Lord, and choose us from all the nations of the earth to be your own special treasure. We are not prey for other nations and wild animals will not devour us. We live in safety and no one frightens us. Nothing will hurt or destroy us because we dwell in your holy mountain. Just as the waters fill the sea, so will the earth be filled with people who know the Lord.

We go out and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We declare and decree that our president, government leaders and those who have authority over the people of this nation will speak with divine wisdom. Our leaders follow your judgments that are fair, detesting wrongdoing. They will not violate their conscience to rely on prayer and the word of God.

Strength, courage and wisdom in decision-making are based in spiritual principles. Their conscious is rooted in the foundation of truth and justice. Lord you are pleased when words come from righteous lips, speaking honestly. Our leaders are godly men and women who live in the land and their integrity remains in it. Every wicked leader will be removed from the land and their treachery will be uprooted. Each leader is accountable to Almighty God for their positions, and for the way they handle themselves. Unfailing love and faithfulness protects our leaders and they are made secure when they demonstrate love for your people and this nation.

God Is… Each & Everyday (Intro Excerpt)


To follow is an excerpt of the Introduction to the devotional “God Is… Each and Everyday”

If I asked the question, “who do you think loved God the most in the bible, besides Jesus,” I believe the overwhelming response would be David. The Book of Psalm, being the evidence, bears his passionate expressions of love, devotion, dependence, and submission to a holy God. The scriptures attributed to his writing, demonstrates an earnest heart-to-heart connection between God and man.

Throughout the bible God declares how much He loves us, and how He pursues us for reciprocation of that love. He gives us advice, instruction, precepts, and examples on how we can fall in love with Him and sustain that love. Each day, we have access to an open-book (Bible) examination to measure our level of faithfulness and devotion to Him.

When we accept the love of God by yielding our hearts to Him, accepting the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, we tend to fall in love with Him so easily. Of course it is the indwelling presence of His Holy Spirit that is our divine assistance to do so. We are so in love with God that we run and tell anyone who will listen how wonderful we feel. “God is so great and I will never stop loving Him” might be your easy, daily testimony and confession.

How wonderful it is to be smitten like never before because you now know what true and eternal love feels like. You profess that you will love Him more than your physical stuff.

Some poetically declare to themselves and others, “I have put away the idols. Nothing and no one comes before the Lord my Maker. Gone so far away from me are the things that are temporal, that gathers dust and perishes so quickly. Oh how my heart beats only for Him. I will never love anyone like I do Him, my beloved. He is perfection, He is true, and there is none like Him. I think of Him moment-by-moment, day by day, week by week. My thoughts of love and devotion never fails, because He provides for me, He protects me, He comforts and loves me with an everlasting love. When His name is spoken my heart skips, and I lie awake on my bed pondering what He will do next. I can’t stop praising and worshiping my God. So great is He, my possession and obsession.”

Did you or do you ever say or think that?

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear;
but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Romans 8:15 KJV

God Is… Infinite


GodIs_Infinite3

But to the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever.

You rule with a scepter of justice. You love justice and hate evil. Therefore, O God, your God has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.”

He also says to the Son, “In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundation of the earth and made the heavens with your hands. They will perish, but you remain forever.

They will wear out like old clothing. You will fold them up like a cloak and discard them like old clothing. But you are always the same; you will live forever.”
Hebrews 1:8-12

The Artist AKA Prince Might Be With The King


Many people all over the world are mourning the passing of the artist, AKA Prince. Personally, I hope he is in heaven, in the bosom of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Last night I watched one of the programs that profiled some of his life. He followed a principle I admire and that was if he had guests at his home, alcoholic beverages, smoking, cursing and cell phones were not allowed.

At the close of the program, they showed him making a comment that I liked. I might not have written what he said verbatim but here goes.

“Every night I pray. I don’t ask much. Then I thank Him.”

I don’t know anything about his spiritual affiliation but I was additionally touched by a song entitled, “THE CROSS” that he penned and set to music. And it follows:

THE CROSS
by Prince

Black day, stormy night
No love, no hope in sight
Don’t cry, he is coming
Don’t die without knowing the cross
Ghettos to the left of us
Flowers to the right
There’ll be bread for all of us
If we can just bear the cross

Sweet song of salvation
A pregnant mother sings
She lives in starvation
Her children need all that she brings

We all have our problems
Some big, some are small
Soon all of our problems
Will be taken by the cross

Black day, stormy night
No love, no hope in sight
Don’t cry for he is coming
Don’t die without knowing the cross

Ghettos to the left of us
Flowers to the right
There’ll be bread for all, y’all
If we can just, just bear the cross, yeah

We all have our problems
Some are big, some are small
Soon all of our problems, y’all
Will be taken by the cross

The cross
The cross

So I wonder if The Artist, AKA Prince just might be with the King. I think he would like it.

My Letter to a New Believer


Thank you for writing me with your concerns about developing a relationship with God. I am happy that you are a new Christian and are confessing Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. When you have done so the Holy Spirit comes to live in you. He is your comforter, helper and teacher and so much more. If you don’t have one, you should invest in a bible. You mentioned that you have difficulty finding a church. If you know someone who attends a church where there is sound biblical teaching, you should visit with them. Not just a Sunday service, but visit the bible study sessions. This is where you will learn about the character and nature of the trinity — God, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit. Scriptures will be explained to help you get a better understanding of how to apply the word of God to your daily life.

Learning and knowing the scriptures are a key to understanding that no matter what is going on in your life, God truly cares about you. He has an answer for everything, a solution for every problem, a blessing for every area of your life. Most of the time, our discouragement, hopelessness, sadness, loneliness is because we dwell too much on the unpleasantries of our past, and even present circumstances. This stifles our future. But God wants us to know and embrace right thinking. The scriptures says that we will have whatsoever we say. So we draw to ourselves or attract what we think and say about ourselves and our situations. I also suggest that you attend an intercessory prayer group that prays the word of God. Here you will learn how to pray and experience the presence of the Holy Spirit. He is that still small voice in your spirit who helps you make decisions, and gives you understanding about things when you ask.

If you want to learn how and what to pray, I include a link to my website that has prayer books to help you. All prayers are scripture-based and I provide a list of the scriptures that I used to create each prayer. Hopefully, they will give you a jump-start on having a prayer life that affirms the truth about what you might be experiencing. My inspirational book contains a few short stories where I share about some of my personal struggles. My past was a lot like yours, but now I have exceeding joy and freedom in my life.

For now I hope this helps you. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. I am not a bible scholar, but I share my Christian experience as best I can. It is because I want others to know about and trust the God I serve. He has helped me, healed me so many times, and blessed me, my children and grandchildren so much that I can never deny Him.

On the “Free Gifts” page of the website, are PDF versions of some of my other books. You can download (no strings attached). I just like to share to hopefully encourage others to trust and love God even more than I do. Bless you child of God and have a wonderful day. Don’t forget you have the Best Friend of all — the Holy Spirit of our God, Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. You will come to know Him as long as you desire to.

In His Love and Service, Christine
