My brother, Your child, is defending our country overseas. Lord, I just received word about his capture. Father, I am sick to my stomach! Lord, protect my brother in his incarceration. Lord, I beg You to allow him to return home safely! While he is there I pray that he will stay strong in his belief in Jesus.
Lord, he believes every word in the Bible and I pray that You will give him the right words to speak every single second that he is in that torturous place.

As I walk through this life, I pray that I will not be the reason for anyone to sin, especially the little children that look up to me! I want to be the best role model I can for them. I want them to see Jesus in me, Father.
I ask for Your patience with me as I am still learning daily to become stronger through Your word. Lord, I will sin again, and I pray that when I do, I will be a good example to these kids about what forgiveness is all about.

Our country is a train wreck! Our government is flawed! Moral decay is rampant here! Father, I pray that You would draw our leaders to You. I pray that You will soften the hearts of any official that is against You.
Father, PLEASE show Yourself in a mighty way to the leaders in our government so that they have no option but to say, “My Lord, my God, I have been so wrong! Forgive me of sin! Show me Your will for this country and I will follow!” And give us the strength to always forgive them when they pass horrible laws that affect the unborn and homosexual marriages. I love You! Amen
No Words Are Necessary

Lord, Jesus said, “Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
” (Matthew 5:16) I do not want to put out this light in me! I want to let it shine bright today! So, Father, if it be Your will let me be a guide for You today, that others can be led to Jesus because Jesus lives in me. I love You! Amen
Whatever your situation is in life you can always use guidance daily from God. If you are in a leadership role of any sort, give your role to God and let Him show you how to guide others His way. God bless you as you live a life worthy of the calling!
