A Prayer For These Bahama Islands

By KATHLEEN KNOWLES

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Most gracious and faithful living God, we magnify and honour thy name above all names. How excellent is thy name in all the earth. Your name alone is worthy to be praised. Our hallelujah belongs only to you. You alone deserve it.

Almighty God you said if we have faith and do not doubt, we will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also, if we say to this mountain, be removed and be cast into the sea, it shall be done. We believe that every mountain of challenges facing our nation is now cast into the sea.

Sovereign Father, we as a nation, we come before you humbly thanking you for strengthening our faith, giving us a people child-like faith. Help us to never doubt your word and your faithfulness. For your word is sure, it cannot fail; it is like a two-edged sword. May it cut, uproot, destroy, pull down, but most of all, build up out nation for your honour and glory.

As a nation, help us to be sensitive to the leading of your spirit and never forget that we can do all things through you, the Messiah who strengthens us. Strengthen us, oh Yahweh, that we may become a strong nation and follow after your truth and your righteousness

Oh chief commander, we thank you for helping the prayer warriors to stay on the walls of our nation. With your help we shall take back our country from the enemy by force. Oh, Sovereign King, we thank you for making our feet like hind feet, they shall run the hills and valleys on the mountain tops of these Bahama Islands, declaring that there is no other God like you.

Oh God, with your help, we are advancing against troops and scaling walls. We are destined to possess every gate from Grand Bahama to Inagua. You have armed us with strength and have made our way perfect. Our Redeemer, we are reminding you of your word as we fight, for it is our only survival. You have trained our hands to war and our fingers to fight. Because of you, our hands are ready for battle. Our hands are upon the necks of our enemies. We are your battle axe. You have given us the shield of victory.

No weapon formed against our nation shall prosper. Thank you for locking the jaws of every enemy and hiding us as a people in your precious blood so the enemy can't see us as we fight for justice in our nation.

We shall fear not, for we know you are with us. We declare your righteousness in this nation, so that we may be governed by your laws and the gates of righteousness opened for you to come in. Help us, oh God, to stand for what is right and fight for what is just. Hallelujah, Amen.
