Cause us to vote for righteous leaders…

“Since they show no regard for the works of the Lord and what  His hands have done,  He will tear them down and never build them up again.” Psalms 28:5

Father we repent for electing officials that are not qualified to hold their present offices, and that do not honor You and Your plans for the United States.  If the church had been awake in Spirit they would not have been elected. We pray that the Holy Spirit will stir the church, so we will participate in the coming election and play a decisive role in electing God-fearing men and women to replace those that are ungodly on Tuesday, November 2nd.

Lord, we  pray that You will help and guide us to vote for the leaders that You envisioned, those who will honor and revere You and seek Your wisdom in all decisions for our nation, its states, counties, parishes and cities. We ask for Your help in selecting judges, school board members, elected and appointed officials, and for any and all positions that have legal authority over us as American citizens. Oh Lord! Let the Holy Spirit guide churches throughout our Land! Let the church help change ungodly leadership into Godly in America through this opportunity so that the church will begin rebuilding our nation on the rock. Lord let this day be the D-Day of the beginning of a new journey of our return to You Lord!!

Let the good movies shine…

marquee“Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable.” Matthew 13:34

Father, thank you for the power of good stories to communicate truth and for the examples you gave us in the scriptures of using stories and parables to teach us.

We pray for good movies, those that are well done, display your goodness, and reveal truth, to take over the entertainment headlines and the marquees in our city.  Let them draw the biggest crowds and encourage the studios to produce more like them.  Let those who view them be drawn to you and be motivated to seek out the truth.

May the generations turn to each other…

“See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse.”  Malachi 4:5-6

Father, we thank you for your spirit of adoption, that when we come to you, we are adopted into your family and you give us spiritual fathers, mothers, brothers, and sisters.

We pray that the children of Colorado Springs will turn their hearts to the fathers and mothers of this city, opening their hearts to be adopted, whether it be legal or informal.  Let your healing power move through those relationships, to replenish their souls and to bring them into maturity.  Let this be a city where children grow up in the security of knowing they are loved.

Father, cause us to cherish life…

“I AM the Resurrection & the Life.” Jn. 11:25

We say “LIVE” over our soldiers today & “STOP” to the enemies schemes to steal, kill, & destroy. The life Father gave each of us is precious, good, & perfect. Cause our troops here & in theater to be keenly aware of their battle buddies behavior. Let them “see” who is suffering to such an extent that suicide is being contemplated. Make a hand extended in love & compassion be part of the military motto of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, & integrity. May these values never be forgotten in peace time & in war.

 

Lord, carry our government…

“..of the increase of His government & peace there shall be no end”.  Is.9:7

As Your people, we want Your holy choices in November. Help us to remember to pray before we vote so Your will be established in our city, county, & state…that justice & righteousness prevail here. We know Your zeal  & love for us will perform it for Your word says so. Amen.

Keep our students safe . . .

“For He will give His angels charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways.”  –Ps 91: 11

Father God, we pray for safety in all our places of education in our city.  Place your angelic guard in and around our schools from pre-school through college to protect students, teachers, and staff from those with intent to harm.   Thwart evil plans before they are executed.  Keep our students safe as they travel to and from school on buses, in cars and on foot.

We pray for businesses in the news…

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

Father, thank you that we can turn to you for wisdom in our every day decisions and that you care for us.

We pray for the 9% of us in the city who are looking for work.  Show us how to engage, what to learn, where to look, and how to connect with your provision.

We pray for the owners of Chapel Hills Mall, General Growth Properties.  Give them your wisdom on whether to keep the mall, to sell it, or to turn it over to the lenders.

And thank you for the county leaders’ commitment to buy local, helping to reduce unemployment here in our city.
