Father, there is another shooting in Texas. God, hear our pleas and cries for Your help and mercy.
God, we lift each family who is affected by this horrific tragedy. Holy Spirit comforts each of them. Do not their hearts fill with anger and hate to seek retaliation in any way.
God, give each of them Your peace. A calming peace that only comes from You. Ease their pain. Disperse their confusion, anger, depression, and suffering! God, shower them with Your love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
God, why does this keep happening? Show us how to stop this. God, reveal to us what is driving this violence that causes death and destruction in the lives of innocent people.
Father, show us the root cause of this.
Father, make our leaders work together to agree on sensible laws that will work, etc. Stop them from blaming each other.
Stop them from hating each other and pointing the fingers of blame on each other.
God, we know that our actions produce reactions.
Father, let us seek You for the forgiveness of our sins and the sins of this nation.
God, we as a people and a nation continue to sin, and we think that sin does not have consequences, but they do.
Our sins open doors to consequences that are too much for us to pay.
People mock and laugh at us as we continue to pray for answers. They tell us our prayers are useless. They say that if prayers worked that these tragedies would not happen in the first place.
The truth is that all of our sins have painful consequences that are too much for us to bear. God’s word tells us that the wages of sin is death (Rom6:23), BUT we are blessed with a gift of Jesus, our Savior! Amen, amen, amen!
Our unforgiven sins will continue to bring mass suffering, despair, and destruction, but most people don’t want to hear that.
They can’t handle the truth and do not wish to know the truth. The truth is all the sins of the world have attributed to the current state of our nation and our world. The price of all these sins is too much for us to payback! We can never repay what is owed for each one of these sins!
God, thank for our Savior! Because of Jesus, the precious blood He shed on the cross, we do not have to repay those sins! He did this for every one of us. He shed His blood for us and took the place for each one of us. But, we do have to repent and seek true forgiveness!
What is the cost to repay for every baby America kills via abortions? I am not referring to abortions for one year or the total abortions in your lifetime. I am talking about ALL the abortions combined since they started happening. I can’t even imagine what that cost is. What is the price to repay for their baby parts to be sold to companies to research so they can profit from future prescription sales and profits? These acts are ghoulish!
What is the cost to repay when our government looks the other way as children are sold into slavery via human trafficking?
And don’t mistake what I am saying about our government. I am not talking about one particular person in the government like blaming this all on our current President or his administration. I am referring to the years and decades of our government doing nothing while these atrocities take place. I am also referring to our role in these atrocities. I am not saying that we had a direct hand in all abortions or trafficking, but we have an indirect hand in it.
We sit back in our comfortable homes and look the other way as these things take place. We need to say something! Write a letter, an email, etc.. to your congressperson, the mayor, the governor, or your local representative. Let your voice be heard. Even if nothing changes, at least you know you tried and God will also know.
God help us never to stop praying. You tell us to pray without ceasing(1Thes5:17). We cannot give up on or abandon our prayers! Do not let anyone silence our prayers.
Father, forgive us! Father, forgive our sins that we have committed against You. Father, forgive our nations for the sins they have committed against You. God, heal our lands. God, bring peace and love back to all of our hearts. God, send wisdom and knowledge to us. God, help us stop these acts of violence, expose the plots and plans of evil people, stop our children from being killed in our schools, and stop these acts of murder in our malls, shopping centers, etc. God, help us voice our displeasure that You have been banned from our schools. God help us express our anger of all these things! God, make us bold with loud voices to tell those in charge that we do not like our money being used to murder innocent babies, that we do not like the fact that prayer and God have been removed from our schools. Father, let us seek You and Your word diligently!
Father, do not let our hearts and souls grow cold towards You and towards each other.
Holy Spirit, convict those who mock us as we seek God relentlessly.
Father, we ask all these things in the name above all names, Jesus.
