40 Days To Save America Fast & Prayer - Day 22
Four Things Every Christian Can Do As A Patriot To Their Nation
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalms 33:12
These words of an American apply to Christian patriots in every nation: “Ask not what your country can do for you but ask what you can do for your country.” There are four things every Christian can do as a patriot in their nation:
1. Pray for righteous persons to be placed in leadership at all levels of government. “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth, for there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus” (1 Tim. 2:1-4).
2. Pray that your nation and your community will be a friend to Israel and to the Jewish people. The Abrahamic covenant is the basis for salvation which has come to us in Jesus Christ. God has sworn to uphold His promise to Abraham as an eternal pact that shall be fulfilled to the utmost. Part of that spoken promise is: “I shall bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you.” Individuals, groups, communities and nations who plot destruction of Israel of the Jews bring themselves under a curse.
3. Share Christ at every opportunity the Holy Spirit gives for God desires “all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
4. Be thankful! In times of difficulty and oppression sometimes it is difficult to open your mouth in praise. Thanksgiving is the gateway to God’s Presence. When a Christian praises God his heart is flooded with relief and grace. When we offer praise, God is enthroned, the atmosphere begins to change, and God’s salvation will appear. “Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; and to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God” (Psalm 50:23).
Prayer Day 22
Lord Jesus, we stand as Your ambassadors on behalf of our nation. In Your name, we bind back every power of darkness that would wrestle America from her Judeo-Christian foundations. We plead Your blood over the upcoming elections and to give us leaders from the top down that will bring back financial integrity and lay the ground for a restored economy. We pray that you would exalt those who stand with Israel so that we may continue to walk in Your blessing, and we pray that you would pull down those who are opposed to You and Your people Israel. Give us leaders that will preserve our liberties to worship You. We praise You and thank You for Your victory in the battle for America’s future.
