Father, in Your Word you have said,
When I close the sky so that there is no rain, or command the locusts to destroy the land, or send sicknesses to my people and if my people who are called by my name become humble and pray, and look for me, and turn away from their evil ways, then I will hear them from heaven. I will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now, my eyes are open, and my ears will pay attention to the prayers prayed in this place.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-15 ERV
We, Your People, in New Mexico, are coming to You and are seeking You. We are asking for Your Forgiveness for the things we have allowed or are involved in, like, late term abortion, gambling, drunkenness, legalized marijuana, debauchery, and many other things. We are not just asking for Forgiveness but for Your Help to turn from these things and the Strength to continue to not partake if there things or even to appear that we are ok with them. Help us to be more and more of The People of God that You would want us to be.
We are asking for Your Help for us to be Humble. Our Hope is that in doing so, we can lead others to do what is right. That in doing so, we can be The True Models of Your Love to others. That in doing so, we can help others in their times of crisis that they wouldn’t turn to things that keep them separate from You.
We are looking for You to do a Mighty Work of God in our hearts, lives, State and land. We are hoping for a Great Awakening of The Hearts of Your People. Our hope is that in this Great Awakening, not only would we be changed, but that it would cause a change in others around us that would bring a change everywhere.
Father, we really do want to turn from our evil ways. We know that they don’t bring You Glory. We know that they keep us from You.
Your Word also tells us,
“I write this letter to you who believe in the Son of God. I write so that you will know that you have eternal life now. We can come to God with no doubts. This means that when we ask God for things (and those things agree with what God wants for us), God cares about what we say. He listens to us every time we ask him. So we know that he gives us whatever we ask from him.” 1 John 5:13-15 ERV
As we come to You, our hope is that You would bring rains to us here in New Mexico. We have been in this drought for a long time. Our lands have become dry and have allowed for fires to kindle in multiple areas. These fires have caused many to flee from their homes and have caused lots of damage. We are asking for rains to not only bring us an abundance of water that we need but also to help aid in extinguishing these fires.
Father, we are asking You to watch over the families that are in the midst of these fires. We are also asking for You to protect those who are fighting these fires. Please, bring Your Protecting Hand over them and keep them covered from suffering loss and injury.
We are also asking You to Watch over our Law Enforcement Officers as it is getting tougher and tougher for them to do their jobs. Please Aid them to have the right discernment to do what is right. Please Protect them from the stresses they deal with in every situation they are in.
We are asking You to Aid our first responders when they go out to provide any medical aid that may be required. Please Help them to provide the care for those whom they are helping
And lastly, we lift our leaders here up to You. We are asking You to Help them to Know You as they do the jobs they were elected for. Please Guide them to make the right decisions that would bring our State back in line with You and to become one that sets examples for others.
We thank You for all that You have done for us, all that You do for us, and all that You will do for us.
In Jesus Name, Amen
Let’s keep praying and seeking for Him
We are praying for rain and no wind and the safety of all! Thank the Lord for all the Firefighters who risk their lives for us!
Over a dozen sizable fires are burning in Arizona and New Mexico.
