Prayer For USA Christians
This is more of a plea than a question. For Christians that are outside of the US and truly suffering bodily, can you pray for us less mature Christians in the US? There are a few of us that realize true suffering is coming.

Shira I am sure a lot of young people have said that but they will learn with age. Those can't hurt us but Obama's fight against paying doctors of Seniors on Medicare as much has hurt us badly. I see it in our Insurance policy that takes up where Medicare leaves off. Now changes are costing the elderly and disabled plus the GIs who fought for this land more money from their pockets,in many cases money we don't have. When I have surgery on my shoulder again I can't stay a night in the hospital no matter how the surgery goes. Last time it took so long they kept me over night but that one night in the hospital,the first night after surgery will cost $1216.00 out of our pocket now. We don't have it. So sad.

Adetjuna, I don't know of any born again officials in high office here in the U.S. If we did, we wouldn't be in the mess we are in now. We are to pray for officials to be saved.

It is very sad that "Christian " high officials of a nation like the USA (who has committed probably the largest in resources & human enegy into the evangelism of other nations) to be leading the worldwide campaign for sodomy today.
---Adetunji on 3/31/14|
Trey, you are so right. We as a nation do not even acknowledge God. they will never acknowledge Jesus. Our great nation is going down the hill of disaster. we have put people in office that don't believe In God. all this is being done willfully and directly. It seems our constitution is no longer a constitution.

Darlene_1 on 3/22/14: Thank God.
---Adetunji on 3/30/14|
We Americans have had it so good that we have gotten away from God! The biggest majority of Christians in this country do not study their bible, do not pray, and most only go to church infrequently.
Let me ask you this question: What would you be willing to give up for this country to turn back to God?
It has been in the worst of times that God's people have sought his face.
Php1:29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake,
Honestly I am afraid of what it would take to bring this country back to God.

Darlene, can't remember who said it but the comment was the older folks are worth nothing compared to the young folks.Ive heard comments from the young that all old folks are stupid and know nothing. If they only knew and if they live long enough, they will know.
---shira4368 on 3/22/14|
Adetunji thank you for being concerned for the USA and you are completely right in America having other problems. Many of them because our President is trying to take away our rights one by one. His Health care has taken away from the elderly to help those who have not earned their insurance benefits the way Senior Citizens have. He wanted to cut back what he pays the medical providers and he did it by charging the elderly. One way this year we have to pay $1216.00 for our first night in the hospital. Fixed incomes don't allow for that. I want the have nots helped but not at the Seniors expense. Thats only one thing and there are many. Thank you again,you're very kind. God Bless

Joseph_n: It is very needful for us outside the USA to pray for Christians in USA. USA President recently was lobbying the Nigerian President against our anti-homo law. From this alone, I can imagine the tough climate for Christianity existing now in the US amongst other problems. Please console yourself with Psalms 93:3-4 & Psalms 46:1-11, God is there with you even in your trials.

Lidia, if I were a millionaire, I wouldn't support tv preachers. I support one ministry outside of my church. We need to be very careful when sending money to people we don't know.

Family, we live comfortably, even poor areas. Troubles all over! Just a few months ago,water plant chemical spill / the water( No one can use) the water still..not for cook,wash or bathe!
We are still able to pray freely, we need to put away all the malice,hadred, vengence, anger
shun evil at all costs!
Pray for our nation! Alot of folks do not have $ to send all the ministries! Prayer good,too! Rev.12:14
Tit.3:8 Titus 3:9

God does not want us to run! He wants us to stand up to Satan and his people. Wicked people. Now, we are not to pull out guns and start shooting. That's the wicked man's game. God will help us to fight the enemies that's trying to take over our beloved land, ahhh. If God's people will just learn not to run. Cowards. I know what I am saying. Now, I shall pray in the name of Jesus, for there is no other God, in heaven or on earth..... Please help us, your people, to represent you. Help us to stop Satan for taking over everything. Help us to learn to fight by your mighty POWER. Give us your stabilty, and your strength. My Lord and my God, my Savior, save us from your enemies and ouuuurs. In Jesus name, Amen.

Yes, lets pray that more Americans will return to faith in God.

Actually, I have seen so many blogs from the rest of the world that seemingly look down on [Christians in the US]. I am just trying to change the outsiders' considerations to our limitations not our weaknesses.-joseph_n on 4/7/10
Jim, when I first posted this, it was because of the constant criticism about Christians in the US. This is not about prayer for our country, this is really a plea for more mature Christians to pray for those less tested.
We do not need anymore bloggers who do not read the whole question (or other responses) and those with a penchant for sarcasm.
---aka_joseph on 4/26/10|
What a novel idea to pray for Christian here in the US.. and yes we should... we should also pray for other Christians in the world. We will never know what is happening to the Christians in Africa, India, the Sudan... Christians are being rounded up and being slaughtered, chidren are being sold into slavery, hands severed... and they will not turn from Christ. Now for us here in the USA, pray for one another... let's see if we can all be accountable to each other. Let's promise to pray and keep praying. I know that I need it. Hey, lets pray for our troops also.
---Jim on 4/25/10|
I agree and will continue for this country as well as Christians everywhere. The good news that the suffering that is in the offing will usher in the return of Jesus who will cause our final redemption. I look forward to no more tears, hate, anger, or evil in general and in being with God in eternity. I can't even imagine His glory and love but understand that it will be most wonderful.
---jody on 4/24/10|
Before I pray. God wants His people to learn to stand-up to Satan.....My heavenly Father in the name of Jesus, Please keep your people, strong and powerful, because You are. Keep us stable, because You, my Lord are. And, also, help us to stand strong and firm in the eyes of Satan. Don't let us collapse, fall at all. Not even stumble. Please help all your people around this world especially the ones that are imprisoned for serving You. Some are even being tortured. Oh my God give us your strength. And keep us. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
---catherine on 4/24/10|
Joseph, yes, we should be praying, not just for the US but for all Christians all over the world. As for less mature, I am not in a position to comment, for I have not lived in the US for many years, but yes, will do. Blessings

1st Cliff, when posting new blog, I was limited to 50 words.
Actually, I have seen so many blogs from the rest of the world that seemingly look down on US. I am just trying to change the outsiders' considerations to our limitations not our weaknesses.
I actually think that the quicker suffering comes, the sooner the Savior returns.
Also, tonight, foe example, I hurt my foot in tae kwon do. Suffering from injury teaches me not to repeat the same mistake. That's what the Lord does. He allows suffering so we can progress in our deliverance no matter how long it takes.
BTW, the Kingdom has already come ~2000 years ago. One day, we will finally get it and catch up, but not without doom and gloom.
---joseph_n on 4/7/10|
Joseph AMEN to your plea!
We should also pray that the impending 2nd civil war is adverted.
---Johm on 4/6/10|
God loves the Israeli, Iraqi and the native born American and not willing that any should perish. Yes I will pray.
---larry on 4/6/10|
Joseph_n, With all due respect what we don't need is more "doom and gloom" maybe suffering is comming (for many it's already here) but look toward the "Kingdom" a happier time that is ,perhaps, not too far off!
