Tuesday’s Prayers for America (6/10/2014)

Dolly 77

 

“You are that man!” Nathan said to David.

I have often been there. So I know what it is like to have the Holy Spirit point out my hypocrisy and sin. I understand just how crushed David felt when Nathan confronted him with the murder of Uriah and his adultery with Bathsheba.

Oh, I may not have committed murder or adultery, but like David, I knew that I had sinned against the Lord. It sickened me to realize how easily I forgot all the Lord had done for me and how simple it was to fall into temptation and then into sin.

Today, I prayed:

Lord, I pray that we American Christians recognize our rebellion so that it haunts us day and night. Help us to realize we have sinned against You and have done what is evil in your sight. Then, give us a broken and repentant heart before You. (Based on Psalm 51:3-4, 17)

What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?

Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for America.

  1. Mr. Larry, this post and prayer reverberated within me .. .and had me repenting and asking for forgiveness for an act I had committed recently.( which I wanted to believe I had every reason and right to do)
    I prayed from Matthew 15:11, about how it’s not what goes into us but what comes out of our mouths that defiles us. So I was praying too, that we/I would be humble and repent of what comes out of our/my mouth, and ask to be purified . ..and that our words be few. (as I leave a long comment!)
    Thank you and God bless you!!!
    p.s. is that Dolly in the photo at the top of the page?

  2. Debbie,

    I probably should tape this prayer to my forehead so I see it when I look in the mirror. Then, maybe I will finally get it myself.

    Yes, that’s Dolly, named after Dolly Parton because she was blond when she was a little kitty. The brownish cat is Lucy, probably named after Lucy in Peanuts comic strips. God bless you.
