Bible Prayer for our Nation

Let the peoples of God cry out before the Lord and pray: Spare us, O Lord! Help us to be above reproach. Do not let us be ridiculed among the nations - nor a mockery among ourselves! Let us not be ridiculed nor a joke to unbelievers anywhere. Why should anyone ever say, “Where is their God?” Mary Harwell Sayler , ©2018, prayer-a-phrased Joel 2:17 from many of the numerous translations on Bible Gateway . …

Global Day of Prayer

On this Global Day of Prayer, may 2 Chronicles 7:14 move us to pray as God guides in Jesus’ Name. If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves - If My people who are called by My Name will call on Me – If My people will turn from their wicked ways – I will hear from the heights. I will forgive and repair the separation that comes from sin. I will heal the lands. ©2014 Mary Harwell Sayler prayer-a-phrased 2 Chronicles 7:14 from the many translations found on Bible Gateway . …

James calls us to pray

In one of today’s timely readings, James exhorts Christians with this timeless, biblical word on prayer: Are any of you suffering? Pray! Are any of you cheerful? Sing songs of praise! Are any among you sick? Call the elders of the church to pray over you and anoint you with oil in the name of the Lord. Pray in faith to save the sick. Pray, and the Lord will restore you, and sins will be forgiven too! So confess your sins to one another. Pray for one another, so you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous has power! The prayer of the righteous has a powerful effect. Remember Elijah? He was human like us, but he prayed with passion for no rain to come, and no rain came for three and a half years! Then Elijah prayed again, and the heavens released their rain and the earth released its harvest. Oh, child of God, if any of you wander from the truth, bring them back! You will save a sinner's soul from death and cover countless sins. James 5:13-2
