  • Saturday39s National Day of Prayer Repentence on Revelation 13
    This is a starting point for Nat'l Day of Prayer.

    Heavenly Father:

    In Jesus' Holy Name, forgive me for not bringing up my children in the Way, the Truth and the Life. Forgive me for not confessing my sins and for not bearing fruit worthy of repentance. Forgive us as a nation for our failure to properly parent 96% of our children and our children's children. Forgive us for our worldliness, for our pride and for our false idols. We ask that, through our children, you complete your Sovereign Will and command to Go and make disciples of all nations. Help us now to repent, personally and as a nation. We pray this prayer in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above all names, the King of kings and the Lord of lords, under which every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord. Amen

    Dear Christian Warriors:

    Sadly, some parents seem to teach this mantra: "Do what I say, not what I do." Unfortunately, this doesn't work. Even our Perfect Father God sent Jesus Christ as an example so that we would have a role model to follow.

    The cure for our failing national morality is for parents to REPENT FIRST and THEN the children will follow.

    Scripture tells us to bring our children early to the House of God (1 Samuel 1:24) and to train them in the ways of God (Deuteronomy 31:12,13; Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:4). Even at a young age children can seek and "speak" God's strength.

    We have now largely robbed children of that Promised experience. Recent statistics by George Barna show that only 4% of "millennials" have a Biblical worldview, 96% are open to the changing morays of a humanistic culture. Sin has almost disappeared as a concept. They don't know what they don't know.

    Join me in repenting in ways that we have failed as parents and as a culture to train our children to walk in God's Way, Truth and Life. Parents are the most influential role models for our children and we must not allow them to be passively taken over by today's media and declining culture.

    The family breakdown is here to stay when there is a lack of strong foundation within Gods love and plans there will be a division which is created by Satan where evil becomes a daily thing which will effect the whole world only as Christians are we protected because of grace faith, works , and the Holy spirit. The world will continue to get worse but as Christians with Gods love it is possible to slow it down. But God will have his way. Bless you who are in Christ. Continue to preach the good news of salvation.
