“Christ, the power of God and the wisdom of God.” — 1 Corinthians 1:24

• We worship You, Lord Jesus Christ, for You are the incarnation of God’s wisdom. Your judgments are unsearchable. Your ways are past finding out. Your thoughts are higher than ours. Your plans never include a mistake. There are no accidents as You carry out Your purpose. You never have to second-guess what You have done, or what You plan to do. You are right…all the time, in every way.
• I worship You as___________
• We repent as we acknowledge our foolishness of denying You as the one, true, living God, BibleimagesCAISJ097our Creator to whom we are accountable, living as though our lives are a cosmic accident with no eternal significance, purpose or meaning.
• We repent of leaning on our own understanding, immersing ourselves in politics to change our nation, instead of looking to You.
• We repent, as a church, Your Body, of depending on programs instead of prayer, on activities instead of the Spirit’s life, on orthodoxy instead of obedience.
• We repent of succumbing to conventional wisdom or popular opinion instead of seeking You first, and asking You what we should or should not do.

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.

    We probably should glue this one to our eyelids. So we can pray it over and over.

  2. Larry I know that you fast and pray for America one day a week and have done this for years. Please share with us a prayer that you have learned to pray for our nation. I honestly don’t know anyone else as committed as you are to pray for America, including myself. I’m so inspired by your example.

    I pray two prayers over and over for America, especially for our various government branches. The first came from a group of missionaries that encountered heavy spiritual warfare in a foreign city and all of their prayers failed. They fasted and prayed and came up with this prayer: “Lord, we pray that Your divine plans and redemptive purposes come forth and are fulfilled in this city (or nation or executive branch of government or judicial branch or legislative branch and so forth.)”

    The second prayer I pray for America and also for the various branches of government: “O Lord, send out your light and your truth into America (or any government branch); let them lead us Americans (or the president or governor or senators and so forth); let them bring us to Your holy hill to praise and worship You. (Based on Psalm 43:3-4)
