A simple but powerful prayer of my friend Sharon:
Grant to me
the gift of hope
the gift of love
the gift of joy
the gift of unity with Your heart
Grant to me
my desire of humility
and the rich understanding of
the unworthiness of my soul
Let me see
the darkness of my soul is to be made
Radiant in unity with
the Father, the Son, the Spirit . . .One
Help me Lord to see my own unrighteousness. I am no better than any out there with hostile words of hate. I don’t live in some ivory tower; I know that I am imperfect, but Lord I bow before You asking for forgiveness for any arrogance I may have in my heart. Show me Your will and Your ways.
Grant to me the gift of hope, of true agape love, of Your joy Jesus, and unity with Your heart. Let me love what You love and hate what You hate. Bring my brothers and sisters under Your covering of hope and love shedding peace abroad into all hearts. You, my God, are mightier than the destroyer ever thought of being; You are the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the land and the seas. In You is all goodness and faithfulness! Lord God I know all this disharmony among Your children is hard for You to see; You are love. Demonstrate Your agape love to Your children, Lord. Send Your legions to clear out our cities, our states, our nation, and our world from the enemy and its demons of hate and destruction. I remind You Lord that this is Your nation, established with Your blessing to honor You and have You as its foundation. Return it to the original precepts on which it became a nation. Thank You Lord, my God. My friends, nothing and no one is mightier than our God. The devil thinks he is; he got evicted from heaven for rebelling against God trying to be mightier than Him. So satan came to earth to finagle Adam into giving him rule over the earth~ until Jesus came and took back the keys from him. Now the devil is a toothless dragon defeated by Jesus. My friends, do not allow the enemy to cause fear in your heart. Rather focus on Jesus and call on the Son of God to help you conquer any situation and be at peace. We humble ourselves and bow before God worshipping Him as our Lord Almighty. Let Him teach us and rescue us from the chains of the enemy’s hatred. Submit ourselves to the love of God, our Father, Creator whose love is bigger and deeper than we can imagine. I don’t know why, but He does treasure us as His beloved children. Let us love each other in obedience to His commands with thankfulness and humbleness of heart.
