Prayer for Life for our Country By Brenda Drake

It is not time for us to give up our freedom.  We need to remember our forefather’s faith and desire for a nation that trusts in God.  As a whole we as a nation have embraced doctrines of devils.  We have laws that blatantly thumb the nose at the Bible and its principles.  How do we fight to keep our Country?  Repent, pray, and make a stand for what you believe before it is too late.  

Prayer for Life for our Country

Father, tear down walls of division, turn our Country back again.
Show the light of truth and reveal and open eyes to hidden sins.
Direct our step give us a clear path to victory.
As we fight our battles on our heart’s knees.
As the days ahead unfold its secrets give strength to carry on.
Let us remember the foundation our life is built upon.
Lift up our hearts in faith see and to understand,
That truly we are held in Your hand.
Let us recall the days of innocence when in freedom we could sing,
An anthem of praise; in allegiance to our Country, and to Jesus our King.
Allow us now Lord to inspect our hearts and agree,
We have sinned against your Word…Lord, hear our repentant plea.
Heal our land my Lord and help us to again be strong;
Ready to do what is needed and to turn away from wrong.
We will look up to where our help come,
We pray in Jesus name Thy will on earth as it is in heaven be done.

2 Chronicles 7:13
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Broken Heart Come Back By Brenda Drake

God is for us, not against us.  I believe this as a follower of Jesus and for a Country that places God first.  When we as a Country have placed our own ideas and convictions above the Word of God, it is as disobedient as the strong-willed disobedient child. When correction is administered by the loving parent the broken heart is encouraged to return to the loving arms of the forgiving moms or fathers loving embrace.  It is also even more so by the most loving God that died to pay for and to ensure forgiveness for our sins.

Broken Heart Come Back

Your heart is breaking; it is very heavy in your chest.
You walked the way you should not; you followed the leading of the flesh.
The road though very colorful is not the way that is right to go.
It seems to promise good things but as you know,
The way of disobedience is not by Him blessed.
There is only one way out of your troubles, repent and your sins confess.
Admit you are a sinner and that you have been led astray,
Set you mind on Jesus and prepare to His Word obey.
Oh the sweetness of grace – taste it once again;
Take it, and make it the place to again begin.
Crucify the flesh… from the devil flee.
Put your trust in Jesus and His strength will set you free.
Only after true repentance are you allowed under God’s safe cover:
Completely forgiven and restored and with your God a lover.

I John 1:8-10
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Calm Your Troubled Sea By Brenda Drake

In one of my tipsy-turvy times when trying to figure things out on my own; because of the churning in my spirit I was not even able pray.   The Lord revealed how to get back the peace I once enjoyed in His presence.  All it really takes is a humble heart that fully admits its inability to go it alone, and that truly repents of it sins and its self-assured ways. 
When we trust and speak the truth of the Word of God , we are able to effectivly use the name of Jesus in our prayer requests.  Even if we do not have all the answers we can know God is in control. We are able to rest in His care and will for our life.

Calm Your Troubled Sea

A storm rages, there is a troubled sea,
Within you it is not calm or at peace.
Your thoughts are uncertain; blowing with the wind,
Some wrong emotions are bottled up within.
Tossed to one side, then to another,
Rocking in a vessel but seeking cover,
But it is not a pleasant journey at all,
If you attempt to stand you stumble and fall.
This is not a word of rebuke as you might suppose,
It is a word to assure you, all things God knows.
What can be done about this trouble within?
Admit your attitude is indeed sin.
Admit your faith needs working on,
And that you are weak not all that strong.
As for the troubled waters about you;
Something can be done for that too.
 Jesus’ love provided your redemption.
He broke the chains and bondage of sin,
He deposited new authority to your new inner-man.
He offers His name to make your demands.
In Jesus name, declare to the raging water, peace be still;
Perfectly fitting in the Father’s will.
The enemy will surely torment the heart that allows him to.
This need not be, heed this word is delivered to you.

John 16:23
Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
