LATITUDE: PRAYER SHIELD
Praying scripture is powerful and helps us hide His Word in our hearts
Prayer to the King of Nations
From Jeremiah 10:6-7, 10, 12, 16 NIV
“No one is like you, Lord; you are great, and your name is mighty in power. Who should not fear you, King of the nations? This is your due. Among all the wise leaders of the nations and in all their kingdoms, there is no one like you.”
Lord, you are the true God; you are the living God, the eternal King. We submit to your lordship and acknowledge your sovereignty. We will not worship anything or anyone else. You alone are worthy of our praise and adoration.
When you are angry, the earth trembles; the nations cannot endure your wrath. Send us to the nations as ambassadors entrusted with the Good News of your salvation. May they have ears to hear and open hearts to receive your abundant grace, mercy and forgiveness.
God, you made the earth by your power. You founded the world by your wisdom and stretched out the heavens by your understanding. May we not be deceived by the false wisdom and finite understanding of the world that denies your almighty power and absolute sovereignty. May we not dishonor you by failing to give you all glory for creating and sustaining all things by your powerful word.
As your beloved children we declare that you, O Lord, are the eternal King of Nations and the Maker of all things. The Lord Almighty is your name.
