Suggested Scriptural references ...
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:14,16
His life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never be extinguished. John 1:4-5
Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law. Proverbs 29:18
I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Isaiah 43:19
Suggested prayers ...
Thank you, L-rd, that in You America can once again become a "City on a Hill" - Your beacon to the world.
We petition You, L-rd, to lead us according to Your plan, in Your timing, with the power of Your Holy Spirit. We know You are infinitely bigger and brighter than the darkness before us.
We ask that You remind us to keep our eyes and minds focused on what is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, and worthy of praise. Help us to elevate conversations and relationships to those higher things. May You be the prompter and completer of any daunting tasks before us. In You only may we find our voice to speak, our strength to move.
G-d in heaven, we pray that America may become a great beacon of Your standards.
As the world sees Your ways and Your love demonstrated in this great country, may they be drawn to Your Son.
Also, Father, I pray America will be drawn to and turn to Your holy ways according to Your Torah because Your ways are life giving. Our Founding Fathers believed in You and based our founding documents on Your Word. May we return to their vision when they founded America.
I offer these prayers in the name of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach. Amain.
