This Thanksgiving, while we were saying the blessing, I wondered how many families actually prayed for our soldiers, country and leaders during their Thanksgiving prayer. I really don't know how many prayed for that or if they even prayed at all (with the ACLU trying to take that away). So what I would like to do today is say a prayer.
Dear Heavenly Father, we come to You today to thank you for for all that you have given us and the wonderful freedoms we enjoy because You are so gracious.
We pray for our brave troops that are fighting for our freedoms and blessings and ask that You be with them in this fight they are fighting. That You keep them safe and help them to do what they need to do and come home.
We pray that You be with our leaders that we have chosen to lead this great nation that you have given us. We pray that You will give them the wisdom that is needing to lead in the way that You would have them lead.
We pray that You will give us the wisdom and strength to follow you in this lost and confused world. We ask that You help us to keep focused on You and not all the worldly things. To please You and not the world.
We thank You for what You have given us through Your Son, Jesus Christ. We know that we are not worthy of Your Son but are forever grateful. You have given us the greatest gift, and that gift has given us a light to follow in this dark world.
And lastly, we pray for our enemies who are lost in this world. We pray that You may soften their hearts so that they may come to know You.
We pray all this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ
