GREAT PRAYER FOR TRUMP BY DAVID PLATT

President Donald Trump made a brief unannounced visit to McLean Bible Church Sunday morning where Pastor David Platt prayed for him on stage.

As many of you know, I recommend the resources produced by David Platt that are available on http://www.radical.net, so I am pleased that Donald Trump was led to visit McLean Bible Church and be prayed for by David Platt. I am convinced Donald Trump was Holy Spirit led. This was no coincidence.

 

“Oh God, we praise You as the one universal king over all,” Platt prayed with one hand holding an open Bible and the other hand on Trump’s back. “You are our leader and our lord and we worship You. There is one God and one savior and it’s You. Your name is Jesus and we exalt you, Jesus.

“And we know, we need Your mercy. We need Your grace, we need Your help, we need Your wisdom in our country. And so we stand right now, on behalf of our president, and we pray for Your grace, and Your mercy, and Your wisdom upon him.

“God, we pray that he would know how much You love him. So much that You sent Jesus to die for his sins, our sins, so we pray that he would look to You. That he would trust in You. That he would lean on You. That he would govern and make decisions in ways that are good for justice, and good for righteousness, and good for equity, every good path.

“Lord we pray, we pray that You would give him all the grace he needs to govern in ways we just saw in 1 Timothy, chapter 2, that will lead to peaceful and quiet lives, Godly and dignified in every way.

“God, we pray for your blessing, in that way, upon his family. We pray that you would give them strength, we pray that you give them clarity, wisdom.

“Wisdom. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Fools despise wisdom and instruction. Please, oh God, give him wisdom. And help him to lead our country, alongside other leaders.

“We pray today for leaders in Congress. We pray for leaders in courts. We pray for leaders at national and state levels.

“Please, oh God, help us to look to You. Help us to trust in Your word. Help us to seek Your wisdom and live in ways that reflect Your love and Your grace, Your righteousness and Your justice. We pray for Your blessings on our president toward that end. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.”

 

GREAT TEACHING ON PRAYER

THE LORD’S PRAYER – Our Lord Jesus gave us the pattern for our prayers.

ADORATION (He is in heaven, He is personal, He is majestic, He is holy, He is sacred) – ACCEPTING (Your will be done) – ASKING (Give us this day .. We need to ask, specific and repeated) – ADMITTING (we don’t forgive until we repent, we need to forsake our sin) – REBELLION (need to come against evil with prayer)

Great exposition on prayer by Tim Keller to a bunch of pastors. A must watch. I was challenged afresh, maybe you will be too. Let me know, love to get a response occasionally. Not that I will stop posting on this site if I don;t get it. I do it because I please God when I do. It His will not my will being done. Make sure you listen to ALL the questions so you hear Tim’s answers.

Whilst I love Tim Keller’s teaching on prayer, I need to say that I categorically reject his acceptance of theistic evolution which has death and suffering before man and The Fall.
