Join Your Prayer because We Are All in This Together

White.

Blue.

Those colors hold more meaning than a child simply looking into a Crayola box. Injustice and division are heavy on our hearts. Tragedies have interrupted our lives once again. I’m not going to link to any news articles, as you can find those yourself. The point of this blog is not to deal with current events, but today we are. I don’t want to get into debate of any issues on this post. I feel part of the solution is PRAYER.

The Holy Spirit is calling us together to PRAY.

My dear sister, Kela Nellums is joining me on the blog today:

My heart hurts and grieves over what’s going on. I pray for everyone that has been directly affected by the tragedies that have been happening in our nation. I don’t know details of what happened, but we don’t have to understand everything in order to stand in agreement in praying.

I’d like to ask you to take a few moments to join me in prayer. As believers, we have the right to go straight to the Throne room. Let God hear us!

Father, the evil of this world is getting darker and darker. We see it moving across the land. It angers everyone that cares, but Lord, may we be mindful to exercise righteous anger instead of fleshly anger. Hearts are broken. Hope seems to be losing ground, but Lord, we know to cling to You. You are our salvation and we trust You.

As many of us move into action, may we consult with the Holy Spirit; to get direction from Him. May we be Your vessel of peace; to use Your word to sooth the hurting souls that are seeking answers.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

{Kelly again}

Father, we lift up our voices and cry out for Your hand to move. Bring healing and comfort to all who are affected by the tragedies of the last few days. Heal wounds both internal and external. You are the God of all Comfort. Comfort those who have lost dear ones. Wrap them in Your loving arms. 

Injustice and division have run rampant. We ask that You come and bring Your presence and power into the midst of all evil and bring justice, healing, and reconciliation. We pray for Your will to be done, not ours. Let us respond with love. Help us to see Your hand moving. 

And, Lord, we pray for salvation for those who don’t know You. We pray for laborers to enter the harvest and fulfill Divine appointments. Prepare hearts to hear and receive You. 

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Now join your prayer in the comments because we are all in this together. If we really want to see change, then much prayer is necessary! 

Note: We ask that comments be only your prayers to God. This is not a place for debate on the issues at hand. Any comments spewing hate will be deleted (even if written into a prayer).

  2. Lord, fill us with your Spirit, your love, and your grace. Change what needs to be changed, heal what needs to be healed. We are yours, Lord, and we need you so badly. Bless us according to our needs and your plan for us. Give us hope, Lord. Lead us into love, peace, and light. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Thanks, sis. We need prayer and God’s healing grace now more than ever. Blessings to you!

  3. Oh ,Father in heaven! Thank You for knowing every details, seeing every heart, and hearing every prayer. I ask that Your church would fall to her knees in prayer now, seeking your direction and obeying Your call to serve those in need. May Your church bring Your message of hope to those who are wounded, hurting, scared, and tormented. May this crisis reveal to us how desperately we need You always. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.

  4. Father,
    Heal our broken hearts. Lead us to walk in love and compassion. Teach us to act justly, love mercy and to walk humbly with you. Bring grace and mercy to this great nation. Build your kingdom in us. Comfort those who are hurt, mourning, oppressed, and fearful. Deliver us and make us to see your grace today.
    Amen.

  5. Father God,
    We trust in Your plan even though we cannot possibly comprehend it. Your wisdom is beyond us in every way. We hurt, Father, and we desperately need You. As we recover from the shock of this tragedy, we ask You guide us. Show us how to cope, and show us how to graciously love one another in our diverse nation. Heal us, Father God. Surround us with Your love. Be with those who have lost a loved one. Protect the men and women who serve to protect us. Help us, Father, that we may not be overwhelmed. Turn our eyes to You, that we may gain confidence to boldly proclaim Your goodness, and be Your Light and Your Peace. Give us strength to meet the days to come.
    In Jesus’ name, we pray ~ AMEN

  6. Father- You are good! You have us all in the palm of your hands.
    Lead us back to you. We wonder why sin is so prevalent and evil is progressing, but we have run so far from your ideals. We each have the choice to return. Give each of us the passion to shine bright for you. Renew our hearts and lead us to show Christ to those within our reach. You taught us how to love, have compassion and become servants to those around us. We desperately need your help. We can’t do this without your help. In your precious name. Amen

  7. Lord,
    Let us not shrink back when we see how ugly our hearts are, but let us pull closer to you and to each other in love. You are as present now as always; let us see you so we can see each other through your eyes. Peace. Grace. Love. Faith. We need your gifts; please help us receive them.

  8. I declare and decree unity and power in Jesus name. I ask that you bring us togther and not apart in JESUS name . I ask that we love and not hate in JESUS name. But most of all , lets make peace and not WAR in JESUS name .. Amen
