+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Collect: Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
(1979 Book of Common Prayer)
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 (NLT)
These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. In the end they will get the punishment their wicked deeds deserve.
“Leaked emails reveal Hillary Clinton’s life of deceit”
By Michael Walsh | 15 October
Hillary has long believed that “the personal is political,” especially when political power can benefit her personally. Indeed, as the emails show, her public career has been based on showing one face to her gullible supporters and another, more ruthless one to allies and adversaries behind closed doors.
Prayer: deceitful workers
Almighty God: You know our hearts, our desires, and our secrets; all are laid bare before You. And now, in these last few weeks before the election, Hillary Clinton’s secrets are being laid bare before the American electorate.
+ Thank You for revealing the duplicity of Hillary Clinton – one face to gullible supporters, and another more ruthless one to allies and adversaries behind closed doors.
Almighty God: Give Your people the discernment to recognize the lies, deceit and corruption infecting our political system.
+ Reveal the deceitfulness of corrupt officials who have gotten rich while serving in public office.
+ Reveal the shameless deceit of corrupt officials who use world-wide tragedies to enrich themselves and their cronies under the guise of charity.
+ Reveal the deceitfulness of corrupt officials who participate in “pay to play” schemes designed to gain access and favors in order to enrich themselves.
+ Reveal the bigotry of “deceitful workers” toward socially conservative Catholics and Evangelicals who have opposed their “progressive” social agenda.
+ Reveal the schemes of “deceitful workers” who have connived for years to rig the system and undermine our electoral process.
+ Reveal the collusion of the “deceitful workers” in the media that has become a propaganda arm of the State – hiding the truth concerning corruption at the highest levels of our government from the American people.
Almighty God: I pray for the souls of these “deceitful workers… who disguise themselves as servants of righteousness.” Convict them of their sin – that they may repent of their service to the Evil One, and turn to You for mercy and forgiveness.
+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit – one God forever. Amen.
