November Prayer

written by Marion Duckworth, Prayer Team Member

We confess, O Lord, that life on our planet has turned sour. Another hero crumbled when an award-winning athlete used steroids and lied about it. Marriage, a biblically based institution, has been dismissed as “just a piece of paper.” Entire families in the Middle East have been murdered by the government that was designed to protect them.

Media has fashioned a Gumby god who can be twisted into an “anything goes” image. Remote and indulgent, he can never say “No.” As your representatives on earth, we Christian writers are called to resurrect the truth.

Energize us to rescue biblical morals and ethics from the trash. Teach us to fashion very human characters who struggle with temptation but who learn to stand just as surely as did our ancestors who were burned at the stake. Gift us to write the truth like fine art in our articles, books, and poems.

Most holy Lord God Almighty, remind us when we sit at our computers to write with boldness and in humility—for we are the ones who know the truth that will set mankind free.

Heavenly Father, Thank You for the grace of love, for giving us Your peace and the gift of faith to believe that You have accomplished for us what we could not do for ourselves. Thank You, Jesus, for being obedient to the point of death. Your love is amazing! Holy Spirit, thank You for being to us the token pledge from Jesus, our beloved husband, that He will return for us, His Bride, after He has prepared a place for us. Come quickly. We love You because You first loved us.
