The Prayer’s of Black Women

October 24

if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV

Good morning from Denver, Colorado! It’s 5:13 in the morning. The Sun has yet to bless us with morning light in this part of the US. But! The light of day is coming!

I woke with the world on my mind and all that follows me. I thought about my public prayer as well as my private request to an unseen God. Among my thoughts is the question why do I follow a God the naked eye can’t see. The thought came after I realized why so many can’t believe in Him. Because! You can’t see Him. How do you know He’s there? Is the spirit in question a He or a She? That question right there is important to a ton of people. It’s a stumbling block for those that seek answers to believing in something greater than themselves. It’s caused folks to no longer follow Christ and or to believe there’s no God at all. But trust and believe He’s real! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Him during one of my darkest days.

My brother had died. He was the only sibling I’d connected with. Perhaps because we lived in the same house, we shared the same parents and we shared some of the same abusive experiences. Well anywho, he’d died. I was questioning God as to why He would take the only family member that loved me. I remember telling Him that I had a whole family that He could have selected from. And, yet, He takes the only one that loves me. I was puzzled by His choice, until now.

As I was praying and sobbing with tears filling my eyes and leaving me with no vision over my brother’s death, I felt a warm and very large spirit enter my home. It connected with my tiny soul. It was so big that after it joined our spirits together I felt it’s presence outside as well as inside the house. As trouble brews over my many decisions concerning my mom’s assets, I was reminded of this particular day. There’s nothing of great concern so big that God can’t help His children navigate through and enter new promise lands. Let’s pray!

PRAYER:

Father, God, it’s a new day filled with opportunities no matter our current circumstances. Remove the scales off our spiritual eyes that causes us to be blind to your many blessings. Showing each individual that reads this prayer the opportunities you have for them. As you give the doer your strength and perfect plan to claim blessings and move into promises lands. Amen

Prayers of Black Women: Amazing Grace by John Newton

John Newton

John Newton is the author of this spiritually enlightenment hymn.  At the age of eleven he became a seaman and later was imprisoned.  After escaping from those that held him captive he found work on a slave-trading ship.  It was then God began to work on his conscience about the cruelties of slavery.  And it was then when he wrote this beautiful hymn as a testament to his transformation from being a slave-ship captain to becoming a Christian.

Most often God takes our wrong to right the wrong of man’s inhumanity to man.  We’re His wonderful creation with the flaw of cruelty attached to our characters.  It is only by God’s amazing grace that saves us from always extending the hand of destruction to our brothers and sisters.

– Prayer –

I pray this day for God’s peace in your life.  I ask God to give you His grace.  For the Bible says, His grace is enough for you and His power is perfect in your weakness as His grace is new every morning.  Have a wonderful day!

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come;
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less dys to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.

The Prayer’s of Black Women: Restoring the Heart of America

Well, Lord, I have finally gotten up from the couch.  Mostly because your spirit has urged me to write a pray.

But, Lord, I feel torn about what I should pray.  There are so many life situations that need your help.  So, again, I feel torn about what I should pray about.  However the situation that seems to be heaviest on my heart is the spiritual and cancerous choice of Americans.

The choice to remove you from our country is drowning this wonderful nation in the pool of political correctness; thus, giving birth to spiritual chaos.

We have taken you out of everything!  We have taken you out of our governmental institutions, our business, our schools, our churches, our homes, our children, our families and our daily actions.  And because we have taken you out of everything we are now experiencing the following:  high unemployment, high divorce rates, high rate of children born out-of-wedlock, high rates of child exploitation’s, extreme amounts of mental illness, and people having disregards for life.

Sadly, Lord, as we the American people bicker over small things such as who should or should not get married.  Or should the NRA step in and help make stiffer laws for obtaining firearms!  Or if a black man is making good or bad choices up on Capitol Hill!  Lord, the country that I love is quickly falling into a perilous state.

Lord the catalyst for what is happening in America is our ease in removing you from our lives!  It’s not the black man up on Capitol Hill!  He’s just one man!  It’s not Joe marrying Johnny or Susan marring Sally!  And it’s certainly not mandating tougher gun laws!  It was removing you!

Lord, the American people need to hear from you!  We need to hear from the God that got this American party started.  We’re a young nation.  And we’re making our fair share of mistakes.  But, Lord, the biggest mistake we have made thus far was removing you!

I’m praying for my country.  I’m asking you for your mercy upon me and my country.  I’m asking you God to show us how to repair our relationship with you.  I’m asking you to forgive the arrogance of the American people.  I’m praying that you will do a historical roll call in their minds and in their hearts.  I’m asking Lord that they remember the blood that was shade for our freedoms; and how you fought along the men that were fighting for all to be freed men and women.  I’m asking you to remind them that our ancestors came here to freely worship you.  I’m asking you to remind them this country was born from a divine dream and supported and encouraged by spiritual God.

For George Santayana once wrote, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  And in Numbers 14:26-38 people perished and wondered in the wilderness because they had lost faith in you and your abilities to create a new land for a people of promise.  Lord, help the country that I love.  Heal the heart of this country because America is a land of promise and we are a people of promise.

Your Loving Daughter,
Annette
