“A Heartfelt Prayer”

September 15, 2016
This morning we will be taking the train from Mount Joy into Harrisburg to participate in a prayer rally at Noon at the Capitol. The event is part of the Decision America Tour which is sponsoring prayer rallies in each state capitol throughout the country. Then we will be having a meal with the Pennsylvania Family Institute, which contends for Biblical and traditional values here in Pennsylvania

Here is a prayer Brooksyne wrote and we prayed together this morning before leaving. Perhaps you would like to join us.

Father in heaven,

Scripture informs us that we are in a wrestling match, not the blood and flesh kind but a spiritual wrestling match where our opponent is determined to capture and destroy our soul and our very lives, if possible. The apostle Paul writes that our opponents are wicked spirits in high places working in conjunction with the rulers of this world’s darkness.

Though Jesus came as a light to those walking in darkness so many have chosen the darkness over the light.

My spirit asks, why do people choose darkness over light? Because the powerful king of evil, Satan himself, is behind all human weakness and wrongdoing. The nations rage and peace is unachievable within our own hearts when we turn away from the light of the gospel and look to the world’s empty way of life-destroying answers for that which ails our sin sick soul.

It’s no wonder the nations rage and are out to destroy one another, for when we are not at peace with the King of kings and Lord of lords we are not at peace with each another. We are desperately in need of a worldwide revival where people surrender their hearts to You, Almighty God, where they turn away from the ravaging darkness of sin and turn to the eternal brightness of life through Jesus, Your resurrected Son. It’s our only hope for peace in this life and for all eternity.

Amen.
