Prayers, Patriotic Day…June 25, 2023
Sovereign Lord, I lift up our nation to You. You have blessed us and established us since the beginning. You have been our shield and our covering of protection. You have made us a great nation on this earth.
Your precepts have been the very foundation this country was built on. You have been our might, our justice, our freedom and our victory. ……….I lift up all who are in office in this country, all who are in positions of authority, and pray that You would protect them and give them Your wisdom, knowledge and acute discernment for the jobs that they hold….. I lift up our military, our intelligence agencies and all who are in law enforcement and fire service, and pray Your protection over them. Establish their steps, Lord. Strengthen them and equip them. Bless them and their families……. Thank You, Lord, for the men and women who gave their lives as they protected and served us, for the freedom of the blessed country in which we live today. Help us to be as bold and brave as they were when it is my turn to protect this land.
We pray for your great spiritual healing on our land. Shine your face on us dear God. We need you now, more than ever before……Our times are in your hands…… Thank you that you are rich in mercy and full of grace. Thank you that you are forgiving and merciful. Thank you that you are strong and mighty. Thank you that you are for us and that you fight for us still today…Freedom is never free…it comes with a tremendous cost! You proved that to all by giving Your life on a cross long ago to assure our forgiveness and unity with You.
Thank you that in our nation today, we are free to worship. We are free to pray. We are free to read your Word. We are free to speak. We are free to share. For this, we are incredibly grateful. Yet, we understand how quickly these freedoms can be taken away. Give us an increased awareness of the spiritual battle we’re in. Help us to stand strong in you and for your purposes…… May we never take that privilege for granted, but always guard it and treasure it. Thank you that as believers in Jesus, our Savior, we can be assured, you will never leave us, and are with us always, in this life, and the next….We know that in you alone, true freedom is found.
Dear God, Thank you for your great power. We praise you for your Truth……….Be with your people, extending your love and grace that you won for us on a cross of death as a sacrifice for or sins, granting your freedom and salvation, providing your protection, and empowering with your strength….
Lord, we ask that you'd bring about an awakening of your saving presence as never seen before. We ask that your Name be proclaimed, that all plans by Satan to silence the Name of Jesus would be thwarted and crushed……We pray that many would come to know you as Lord and Savior, we pray that many would see your Light, that you would open blind eyes and release those still imprisoned…… We pray that you would unify your people in our land and throughout the world for the glory of your Name, that all who call themselves Christians would rise up, believing your great Truth.
Heavenly Father … remind us today that You have shown us what is good in what You require of us; to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God….. Help us in our nation to work as never before to strengthen our families and to give our children hope and a moral foundation for the future. So may our desire be to serve You, and in so doing, serve one another. …….May we not live in apathy to you, but live in awe of your love and forgiveness freely poured out for us. Allow our light to shine brightly as our hearts turn to you. In You Jesus, and You alone, rests our hope and our future. Turn the hearts of Americans toward You….In Your Holy Name..AMEN.
Rev. Carl Bassett & Lisa Bassett
We are extremely honored that Reverend Carl Bassett and Lisa Bassett have joined and will be supporting the Core Spiritual Leadership Team at Heal Our Land.
The primary goal in our efforts is the Evangelistic opportunities that are being created today to bring people to Christ by praying that Almighty God will hear our prayers and Heal Our Land by the way of a Spiritual reawakening.
A second goal is to remind Americans who we are, and from whence we came and come together to peacefully stand in action by serving and protecting what the Lord has Blessed us with by supporting those churches and organizations who Stand for the Lord and the Freedom He has provided.
