let me tell you what he has done for me.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth;
his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart,
the Lord would not have listened;
19 but God has surely listened
and heard my voice in prayer.
20 Praise be to God,
who has not rejected my prayer
or withheld his love from me!" Psalm 66:16-20
This is an exciting week for Warfare Wednesday, because President Obama is taking part in his first summit this week! It officially begins tomorrow in London, with a reception taking place today at Buckingham Palace. There are plenty of protests and demonstrations being planned for this G-20 Summit, so first and foremost, let's do some interceding for safety for our president, and all the world leaders in attendance. They are meeting to discuss the global economy, and how to take steps towards economic recovery for all nations. Let's pray for wisdom for these world leaders, and an awakening to God's plans and desires for all mankind. They will be looking very closely at the current global economic crisis and trying to figure out exactly where the problems are, and how they can be avoided in the future. One of the goals of the G-20 is to provide a plan for a complete recovery across the globe. Let's pray that God will fit into the equation while these leaders meet, that any plans created will be pleasing to God, and that God will uniquely touch each individual in attendance.
Today we are also going to pray for the brave men and women serving in our military. Just yesterday a suicide bomber attacked in Mosul, Iraq, killing at least seven people. In recent weeks, the suicide bombings have greatly increased in Iraq. Let us pray for safety and divine protection for the men and women serving in the military. Let us also continue to pray for God to bring peace to the Iraqi people, and peace to the Mid-East. With God, all things are possible.
