maker of heaven and earth,
please help my words to be few
and my prayers to be many.
never fully understanding the alchemy of prayer,
but never doubting your power;
I ask your complete blessings
on the Comey, Obama, Clinton, and Trump families.
In Jesus name, amen.
I pray that you bless
the Obama, Trump, and Clinton families
with the wisdom that is possible
only from truly knowing you.
Help me Lord–
there is one person
over whose moral and religious choices I have control:
and it is I.
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people”.
It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
– John Adams
I pray that you bless
the Clinton, Trump, and Obama families this election night.
Please meet their needs with your amazing grace.
Lord, thank you for the grace and humility
we have heard in the very recent words spoken by
President-elect Trump, Secretary Clinton, and President Obama.
Thank you, Father, for answering our prayers.
In Jesus name,
Lord Jesus, please keep me focused on what’s truly important in this dash of time we call life. Please remind me daily of this undeniable truth: one nanosecond after I leave this life, it won’t matter a hill of beans to me who was elected president of the United States in November 2016. Thank you, my Abba Father.
For our present troubles are small
and won’t last very long.
Yet they produce for us a glory
that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!
So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now;
rather, we fix our gaze on things
that cannot be seen.
For the things we see now will soon be gone,
but the things we cannot see will last forever.
2 Corinthians 4:17-18
we don’t deserve any of your blessings
because we’re all sinners in need of your grace.
In full acknowledgment of that truth,
but because you say in your word
that your mercies are fresh every day,
I ask your blessings on our country
and those who lead
and will lead our nation…
the Obama, Clinton and Trump families.
Father, please keep my focus on the important things–the ones for whom I pray–keep them safe, by night and day. Give each of us an intense hunger and insatiable thirst for you. And, Lord, thank you for your reminders; and please use my moment well.
We are here for only a moment,
visitors and strangers in the land
as our ancestors were before us.
Our days on earth are like a passing shadow,
gone so soon without a trace.
1 Chronicles 29:15
