Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – John 8:31-32 (NLT)
“Never before have I seen such a sharp rift in the moral and spiritual fabric of our country. America the beautiful is under assault by rocks of terrorism, by dirty birds that feed on immorality, and by political correctness that tangles like briars, choking the very life out of a nation that once proclaimed ‘In God we trust.’”
– Franklin Graham (Rocks, Dirty Birds, and Briars)
Prayer: The Triumph of Truth
Merciful God: You alone have the power to spiritually transform America from a godless nation into godly nation. You alone offer freedom to all who humble themselves before You in repentance and prayer. In this spirit, I ask You to heal our broken land – politically, morally and spiritually. Intervene in this presidential election cycle that truth may triumph over lies to Your glory and honor.
+ Lord, embolden Your people to be sowers of the Gospel of truth even in this season of lies and deceit.
+ Lord, give us the discernment to distinguish between truth and lies and to speak and act accordingly.
+ Lord, shield us from evil rock throwers of accusation and the deceitful messaging that dominates the media.
+ Lord, protect us from evil thieves and predators who would steal our country’s heritage and leave us wounded and dying in sin.
+ Lord, deliver us from temptation and painful entanglements that drain our energy and leave us useless.
Gracious God: Draw us back to the truth of Your Word and enable us by Your Spirit to clarify eternal fact from contemporary fiction. Produce in us truthfulness, holiness and obedience that truth may triumph over lies to Your glory and honor.
+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit – one God forever. Amen.
