A Prayer for our Nation – January 22, 2021
**This prayer was originally posted on FOXNEWS 1.20.2021 – http://ow.ly/JPMw50DdGI8
There are times in prayer when I seem at a loss for words. This is one of those times. With all of the turmoil, confusion, anger, fear, division and upheaval as we transition to a new administration; with COVID keeping us confined and separated from each other, I know I need to pray, but how? And so I have turned to the familiar prayer that Jesus taught us to pray, putting it into my own words:
Note from Anne
Now Moses used to take a tent and pitch it outside the camp some distance away, calling it the “tent of meeting.” Anyone inquiring of the Lord would go to the tent of meeting outside the camp. Exodus 33:7
The atmosphere in our world is explosive. Toxic. Dark. Dangerous to the extreme. And at this very moment when our nation should be standing together against wickedness and lawlessness, we are seriously divided. It’s time to “inquire of the Lord.” Now! It’s time to humble ourselves and pray and seek God’s face and turn from our wicked ways, so He will hear from heaven and forgive our sin and heal our land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
My desire for this webpage is to serve as a Meeting Place for Prayer. I will post some of my own prayers here, and provide space for you to post your prayers also. I will post blogs or thoughts about prayer as the Spirit brings them to my mind. My purpose is to encourage you and myself to remain faithful, focused, and fired-up in prayer during these dangerous, dark, and divided days. Then remain attentive to what God may say to us in reply.
As Moses went into the tent, the pillar of cloud would come down, and stay at the entrance, while the Lord spoke with Moses. Exodus 33:9
