May God's Divine Wisdom, Inspiration and Guidance be with us all as to the path that God shall lead us on as we try help save our country from complete destruction. The below prayer I find to be beautiful and inspiring and I do hope it will be shared by many. God bless.
The Touch Of God Upon Our Nation
Most Precious Lord Jesus, Gentle And Wonderful God, Truly Awesome And Ever-present Holy Spirit, I love You, Lord Jesus. Please bless this nation in which I live. Please pour out Your Spirit upon this nation's people and upon its leaders. Our nation has had times of trial and times of blessing. At this moment, we are facing grave dangers and trials we have not seen in generations. Because of this dark hour in our nation's history, I seek Your Touch upon this nation and its citizens. Touch the heart of every man, woman, and child who lives within our borders. O Lord, open our heart to You and to Your Love. O Lord, open our heart to You and to Your Will for our people. Protect us from the looming darkness that threatens us. Protect us from the evil that lurks about both from within and from without. Protect our people. Protect our leaders. Inspire in all of us, the desire to do Your Will and only Your Will. Keep us on our knees before Your Cross. May Your Touch open the floodgates of our creative spirit, our imagination, our inventiveness, our growth, and our unlimited hope for the future. Inspire in us a heart to turn from every corruption. Inspire in us a heart to turn from every temptation. Inspire in us a heart to do and live only Your Will each day. All these things I humbly pray in the Name of my most Blessed Lord Jesus Christ, my Mighty God, and my Ever-present Holy Spirit upon Whom I can rely. Amen.
A beautiful Prayer Suzanne, thank you for posting..
Thank you for your comment. The prayer is very touching and to me brings forth the actions that we are hoping will be permitted to encounter once again within our beloved nation. God Bless our America and all of our fellow Americans and our legal immigrants who some have sacrificed much to live here within our America.
Praise God--"how beautiful the feet...." We tand in agreement in this beautiful prayer. As it ihas been lifted up so let it be.
"No one can rejoice more than I do at every step the people of this great country take to preserve the Union, establish good order and government,and to render the nation happy at home and respectable abroad. No country upon earth ever had it more in its power to attain these blessings than United America. Wondrously strange then, and much to be regretted indeed would it be,were we to neglect the means, and to depart from the road which Providence has pointed us,so plainly:I cannot believe it will ever come to pass. Th Great Governor of the Universe has led us too long and too far on the road to happiness and glory,to forsake us in the midst of it. By folly and improper conduct, proceeding from a variety of causes, we may now and then get bewildered: but I hope and trust that there is good sense and virtue enough left to recover the right path before we shall be entirely lost
George Washington,June 29,1788
And it will be the Prayers of Godly Founders, and the Blood of those shed to protect it, for the Freedom to Worhship Him, which will petition for our mercy, not the good we've done. We'll never deserve the mercy God showed on that cross, let alone for our nation.
This is so inspiring to hear the words of the greatest leader of our nation, George Washington. Thank you for posting this. I will share with other sites too.
Yes, May our Founding Fathers Faith and Labor never be forgotten. The following prayer was written by Thomas Jefferson.
Prayer for the Nation
Almighty God, You have given us this good land for our heritage. We humbly ask You that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Your favor and glad to do Your will. Bless our land with honorable endeavor, sound learning and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion, from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties and fashion into one united people the multitude brought here out of many nations and tongues. Endow with the Spirit of wisdom those to whom in Your Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that through obedience to Your law we may show forth Your praise among the nations on earth. In time of prosperity fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble do not allow our trust in You to fail. Amen.

Amen, Suzanne, the Fountains Water is bubbling up with force, all across the nation, and with a vibrant power, 'n strength, the adversary theorized had been shut down to a trickle his weak lemmings could control.
Oh, Merle may the Fountains Water never stop bubbling with God's Force of his Given Principle upon our Nation and within each of us. God Bless and Protect our America.
Just what I needed after a day of working on OAS and nothing else.
Thank you Suzanne.
David, I am so glad that this prayer filled you with some peace and inspiration. We Know that God is with us, but when we are going through the type of turmoil and uncertainty that has come about within this once great nation, our Faith and Hope need to be reinforced in our Loving Lord. God Bless you. Thank you for your loving commitment.
