Weekly Watch Focus: Preserving Religious Freedom in our Military

FRIDAY, Jul 12, 2013 It has been our privilege to pray for our armed forces over the years. We want to take note of growing hostility toward Christians serving in the U.S. military. Those who are willing to fight for our freedom are presently at risk of losing religious liberties which have been honored in our military for the last 237 years.

Please pray for all the branches of our armed forces, especially for the Christian chaplains. Pray for protection of religious liberties of all our men and women in uniform. May Christian be able to speak freely about their faith, pray, or share the Bible without fear of demotion or dismissal.

2 Cor. 3:17, “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

Gal 5:1, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free,[a] and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”

1 Peter 2:13-17, “Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men— as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God. Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.”

Ps 144:1-2, “Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle—my lovingkindness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer, my shield and the One in whom I take refuge, who subdues my people under me.”

Prov. 25:26, “A righteous man who falters before the wicked is like a murky spring and a polluted well.”

Ps 119:45, “And I will walk at liberty, for I seek Your precepts.”

We remember fellow believers who are oppressed and tortured for Christ’s sake. In communist China, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and other parts of the word, violent radicals or oppressive communism continue to persecute and even murder Christians.
We thank God and pray for our law enforcement. We ask the Lord for their safety and guidance as the carry out their duties with integrity.
As our children return to school, we cover them in prayer. Whether they attend public school, private school, home school, or college, we pray a special anointing over them.
There is a declaration of war in our culture against the identity of our children. Our foundational values and the preservation of identity for individuals and families through Christ as the building block of society is under attack.
Pray for financial recovery from what many economists are calling a recession. We humbly pray for a healthy economy and that integrity would be restored in leadership.
