INVOCATION FOR THE POLITICALLY PERSECUTED
The Invocation for those suffering persecution for Liberty’s sake and for those who stand with them…
Creator God, we pray and petition heaven for Your Mercy to rain down upon our Politically Persecuted, here in America, as we stand in solidarity with those across the world who have also been subject to terrible injury and loss or who have become defendants or imprisoned in serving the cause of Freedom.
We intercede for them today, with all our heart, soul, and mind, because they stand in our place, sometimes alone, facing the hate-filled enemies-of liberty on the front lines of hell-on-earth, a profound sacrifice which we will never be able to fully grasp or repay. Let their shackles be our shackles in that we will not rest in our labor on their behalf, until they are restored, healed or set free.
We pray that wherever these Political Prisoners and Defendants are being held or tormented, that they feel Your Holy Presence within every breath, filling them with hope, with strength to endure and with the courage to stand their ground. We ask for protection from injury, that no weapon formed against them shall prosper. We ask that all those who seek to inflict suffering upon them will feel deep, irreversible conviction, and that they will cease in participation or complacency concerning any evil works and…will do no more harm.
We ask, beloved Creator, that Your Light lead our politically persecuted, moment by moment through the valley of shadows. We pray blessings and Godly peace upon their families and that there be an outpouring of Your provision for all needs as well as for righteous legal counsel. We ask that those communities surrounding the families of the persecuted stand with them in a spirit of love, mercy, and compassion.
Divine Creator, we pray for the souls of the departed, who have passed from this world due to the evil which was perpetrated upon them as they stood for Freedom. We pray for comfort upon their families who grieve, as we grieve with them. Their precious names are engraved upon our hearts and so we pause for a moment of silence in their honor…
We pray now for the soul of our Nation asking that all ungodliness be uprooted and removed from influence or power. May Your Light become our beacon as your righteousness is restored across the land and across our planet. May we, one day soon, witness Liberty and Justice being fully implemented so that Your glorious plan for the Vision which is America, come into fruition, according to Your Will.
Beloved Creator, we thank you for each time that we gather under our banner of Liberty; and as we do so, we pledge our allegiance to You and to our Tenets of Liberty, and to our Constitution, affirming our FAITH in You to guide us through any fog of deception.
In-so-doing, we realize that it is incumbent upon us to accept the mantle of responsibility which accompanies Freedom. Therefore, help us to keep our minds focused on You, as we embrace our duties in the way we live, in the way we consistently and sacrificially serve, and in the way we teach by our example, all principles and laws of Truth and Freedom, so that Liberty may endure for all generations to come.
Finally, Divine Creator, be with us and help us grow in Love for You and others, in humility, patience, and forbearance, so we can complete the mission which you have given each of us and do so with wisdom, honor, and unity.
These things we commit to, in remembrance of all who have sacrificed before us or who are still serving or suffering in harm’s way on behalf of Liberty.
We will remain in prayer and in service until the glorious day when all the captives will be set free and returned home and all that has been lost, will be restored …and we know that whatever we will have accomplished for good, it will have been by Your Mercy and Grace.
In Your Name We Pray, Amen.
To God, from whom all blessings flow. We give you honor and thanksgiving for the freedom you have given to our soul.
