September 13 Prayer
“No one can feel hatred towards those for whom he prays.’
St. John Chrysostom
Prayer frees us.
When we pray for others, even those we do not like,
our hearts change.
When we pray with pure hearts and lift up holy hands
We pray surrendered,
We pray being held up,
to higher heavenly ground by stronger heavenly hands
with words that bless and not curse.
To set those bound by lies,
free to come to the truth.
For God desires all people, all leaders and rulers to
come to a saving knowledge of his truth.
‘Now is the proper time for God to give the world this witness…
For there is one God and one Mediator.’
So let us pray with holy hands in every place,
Let us pray being held up by Angels hands.
“Lord, save us,
save our rulers from lies and disputes.
Free us from our frustrations and strife.
We desire your higher ways today.
Lead us under your authority so we may pray with authority.
In the name of all goodness and dignity, hope and peace.
‘For you are the hope of all the earth, and of the distant seas.’
1Tim.2:1-8, Ps.91:12, Ps.65:6
