Day 19 - Pray For Your Military and First Responders
Minister Kila Turner
WORD OF FAITH SOUTHFIELD, MI
Today, we are going to pray for our military and first responders. We are so grateful for those who willingly lay down their lives every single day to protect our freedom, our borders, and even our very own lives. God appreciates this, as well, and He instructs us in Romans, chapter 13, that those who serve in the armed services, as first responders, and in law enforcement—they are ministers of His. They are powers that are ordained of God. And so, as authorities in our lives, we are commanded, according to First Timothy, chapter 2, to pray for them.
We want to pray several things today. First of all, that they recognize that there is a high calling of God— that they are His ministers—and they are here to execute terror on evil and they are for our good. So they need to recognize that calling on their lives. We are going to pray that the anointing of God rests upon them mightily as they serve day in and day out. Let’s pray for their protection according to Psalm 91 that everywhere they go they are in the right place at the right time; they know the right thing to do and God’s angels protect them less they dash their foot against the stone. Let’s also pray that they are strengthened in their spirit, soul, and body so they can carry out God’s will in the earth. We also want to pray for their family members that the peace of God that passes all understanding mount guard over their hearts and minds, through Christ Jesus, as their loved ones are serving and placing their lives on the line for us. Lastly, we want to pray in the Spirit, God’s perfect will for them so that they can continue to do what God has called them to do. So today, let’s pray for our military and first responders, in Jesus’ name. God bless you.
