Isil has been making threats against our nation. They are threats we should not be casual about. But we don’t need to overly fear them either. As God’s people we are called to give him all our cares, fears and pray for ourselves, each other, and the world we live in. This is my prayer for today.
Father God. I thank you that you are an approachable God. The way has been made open to come to you through Jesus. To you we can talk to you about all our fears, needs, wants and confusion. From you we receive complete forgiveness of sins. From you we receive peace and empowerment to live.
Isil has made threats towards Australia. I ask that you will cover our nation with a blanket of peace. Hold back the demonic forces of fear which try to uproot our nation. I pray for every heart that is inclined to terrorism in this country to be confronted with the revelation of your love. That they will soundly convert to you. That those people will have their heart of hatred converted to a heart of goodness and love. I pray for the leaders of Isil throughout the world that you will convert their hearts of hatred to hearts of love. That they will bow the knee before you and confess that Jesus is Lord.
Thwart every demonic influence that would try and cause harm to our nation. Grant our leaders wisdom so that we can live out our lives in peace.
In Jesus name I pray.
