Tuesday’s Prayers for America (November 4, 2014)

On June 16, 1858, the Illinois Republican Party chose Abraham Lincoln as their candidate for the U. S. Senate to run against Democrat Stephen A. Douglas. That evening Lincoln addressed his Republican colleagues and stated the following:

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free.

I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided. 

It will become all one thing or all the other. (House Divided Speech)

Lincoln’s speech was considered too radical at the time, but Lincoln justified it by saying, “I will deliver it as written. I want to use some universally known figure, expressed in simple language as universally known, that it may strike home to the minds of men in order to rouse them to the peril of the times.”

Although Lincoln lost his senate race with Douglas, his words soon proved to be an accurate prophecy.

Today, I prayed:

Lord, whether our nation remains divided or not after today’s election is in Your hands, so I pray that we believers walk in such perfect unity that our communities will know that we are Your disciples because of our love for one another. (Based on John 17:23 and John 13:35)

What do you think and did the Lord speak to you today?

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

  1. What a perfect prayer for us today . . .thank you, Mr. Larry. My prayer was kind of in line with yours. I prayed from John 21, where ape tee asked about John’s future and Jesus told him ‘what is it to you . . .follow Me”. Praying for us each not to be overly concerned in a bad way (comparing and following each other) with what our brothers and sisters are doing, but follow Him. God bless you!

  2. Debbie,

    Thanks. Your prayer was awesome and I agree with it. God bless you.
