Human Rights and Individual Freedoms
This week's focus: Liberty and FreedomOne of the most important of the “seven spheres of influence” involves government and politics. People around the world are willing to lay down their lives for the freedoms expressed in the United States’ Declaration of Independence in 1776: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” Pray that we, as Americans, do not forget that freedoms and liberties we experience are gifts from God that can be lost if we turn our backs on Him. Pray that God will intervene in America’s national and local governments in ways that promote individual freedoms. Pray that more devoted, righteous people will seek and be elected to public office, thus helping provide a more compass for their communities and nations, for where there is no vision, the people will perish (Proverbs 28:18).
Romans 8:19-21For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.
In Your Prayers, Remember:
- The people of Texas and Louisiana who have been displaced by Hurricane Harvey and have lost everything
- The aftermath of Hurricane Harvey which presents new dangers, health risks, and shortages
We want to see God honored in America, and we pray for an unprecedented spiritual awakening.
