“The universe, they say, is so vast, it makes man utterly insignificant. Why would God have bothered to create such a microscopic speck called the earth and humanity and then get involved with us? Beneath this question is a fundamental failure to see what the universe is about. It is about the greatness of God, not the significance of man. God made man small and the universe big to say something about himself. And he says it for us to learn and enjoy—namely, that he is infinitely great and powerful and wise and beautiful. The more the Hubble Telescope sends back to us about the unfathomable depths of space, the more we should stand in awe of God. The disproportion between us and the universe is a parable about the disproportion between us and God. And it is an understatement.” (John Piper, Don’t Waste Your Life, 34)
Target: Illegal Immigration
Lamentations 5:1-2 Remember, O LORD, what has come upon us; Look, and behold our reproach! Our inheritance has been turned over to aliens, And our houses to foreigners.
Founding Father Quote: “No country upon earth ever had it more in its power to attain blessings than United America. Much to be regretted would it be were we to neglect the means to depart from the road which Providence has pointed us to so plainly. I cannot believe it will ever come to pass.” -George Washington
Prayer: Father God, we have become complacent and neglected to protect our precious “American way of life.” Our Founding Fathers used direct quotes from the Bible in 34% of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The cornerstones of our very existence as a nation are based upon Biblical principles. These formidable documents were intended to encourage Americans to live their lives according to Your Word or forfeit our blessings to the enemy. Forgive us for allowing unrighteousness to infiltrate our society and to threaten our very existence. We have not been good stewards of our borders. Help us to secure our national borders and enforce the immigration laws currently in place. May those wishing to become a part of our United States choose to enter legally, and may they bring with them a deep respect for our Judeo-Christian values. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Founding Father Quote: “Oh how I wish the people would awake up from their lethargy and come out soul and body for Christ…the more my ideas develop, the more beautiful and grand seems the plan I have laid out to pursue, or rather the one God has destined for me… (Let us pray that the Lord will completely guide us in all things, and that we may gladly be led by Him.)” -George Washington Carver: Born a slave in 1864, he became world renowned, addressing presidents and kings. As a scientist at Tuskegee Institute, he discovered 300 uses of the peanut and 100 uses of the sweet potato.
Prayer: Jesus, You are the Creator of the universe, and all good and perfect gifts come from above. You have formed man in your own image, as a creative being. Forgive us, Lord, for allowing our own foolish greed and selfish ambition to precede our desire for You. Your Word clearly says to seek first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness, and we have sought everything but You. We are a people in search of a purpose, when You have given us a design destiny that we have all but avoided. May we return to seek Your perfect will and purpose for our lives. Today, we call on Your hand to direct us in every future endeavor, that whatever we put our hands to will prosper to the glory of God the Father. Reveal to us the person You would have us to be. We seek Your face, expecting that Your supernatural revelation for our lives is already on the way. You have given us a future and a hope, and we ask now that You begin to birth that hope anew in our hearts. Bless us in our businesses, that the work we do will bring honor and glory only to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Target: Court System
Psalm 2:10 “Now therefore, be wise, O kings; be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear and rejoice with trembling.’
Founding Father Quote “While we are using the means in our power, let us humbly commit our righteous cause to the great Lord of the Universe, who loveth righteousness and hateth inequity.”
-John Hancock, Signer of the Declaration of Independence, President of Congress
Prayer: Father, our judicial system has become prolific in spreading unrighteousness throughout our nation. Your Word says that righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Our nation is in a state of turmoil, because we have been unfaithful to follow Your commands. Because of our foolish choices, we now have men and women with no regard for your Word in seats of judgment. We have allowed the laws of our land to become perverted by these rulers, when we should have spoken up during local, county and national elections. Forgive us for our silence. We humble ourselves, Lord, and ask for Your merciful intervention. If we are to survive as a nation, we need to change the ungodly policies that are currently in place. Though we deserve Your judgment, we are asking for a full pardon. We have become a nation who has turned her back on You. We ask that, like David, You renew a right spirit within us, that you return us to the one true God of our forefathers. May the judges and attorneys that walk the hallways of our courthouses put You first. May the lawmakers put You first. May Your outstretched arm once again cover us as a shield. And may Your blessing be upon our lawmakers as they take us back to a country that is one nation under God, for the people and by the people. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
