I am always and always will be willing to share with you the "content of my prayers."
Tonight it is this:
Dear Lord, have mercy on us sinners, saved and transformed by Jesus Christ.
Grant us grace to pray for those who persecute us and love for all who call us enemies.
May your kingdom come here in this place, this land, this nation - in my heart, first.
Give those of us who call you Father, loving hearts, wise thoughts, constructive actions, patient endurance, and unusual courage for this hour.
May we bring you honor, Father God, with the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For THINE is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory forever.
This I pray, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
(How about you, loved ones?
Are you willing for the IRS to know the content of your prayers?
I think, since they're so interested, we should all send an email to our local tax office detailing the content of our prayers this week.
Here's the link to find your local tax office. http://www.irs.gov/uac/Contact-Your-Local-IRS-Office-1
We do still have freedom of speech - don't we?
And, won't that just make their jobs, that much easier? You know, if we assist with data collection.)
