Guidance In Prayer



I have been wondering how to pray for guidance during this political campaign in order to discern more effectively the candidates, and the answer came during my prayers this morning the form of Psalm 12.  I invite everyone to pray it with me until Election Day, 2016/.

Psalm 12

Help, O Lord, for good men have vanished:
truth has gone from the sons of men.
Falsehood they speak one to another, 
with lying lips, with a false heart.

May the Lord destroy all lying lips,
the tongue that speaks high-sounding words,
those who say: "Our tongue is our strength:
our lips are our own, who is our master?"

"for the poor who are oppressed and the needy who groan
I myself will arise," says the Lord.
"I will grant them the salvation for which they thirst.

The words of the Lord are words without alloy,
silver from the furnace, seven times refined.

It is you, O Lord, who will take us in your care
and protect us for ever from this generation.
See how the wicked prowl on every side,
See how the wicked prowl on every side,
while the worthless are prized highly by the sons of men.

I believe this prayer holds the answer as to how we are to pray.

Thanks be to God!!

  1. If you're at all interested in knowing . . . the Catholic Dogma . . . that we *must believe* to get to Heaven, and which you have *never* seen . . .

    I list it on my website > > www.Gods-Catholic-Dogma.com

    > > Abjuration of heresy to enter the Catholic Church > www.Gods-Catholic-Dogma.com/section_19.1.html

    The Catholic God knows . . . what we think and believe . . .

    Catholic writing of Romans 1:21 >
    "They ... became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened."

    Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Deuteronomy 31:21 >
    "For I know their thoughts, and what they are about to do this day."

    Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Job 21:27 >
    "Surely I know your thoughts, and your unjust judgments against Me."

    The group that calls itself "islam" ... is not a religion. Fully proven by the fact that the "koran" says the *opposite* of the Old Testament Prophets > Section 113 of the site.

This has become a new adventure. One in which I will try to express my journey with providence.
