I took a break from posting prayers for our nation, one state per week, in the aftermath of my husband’s surgery. I remain committed to praying for our nation and am resuming. Over the course of time, I will go back and pick up those states we missed.
Today, I am praying for my home, Mississippi. Mississippi is a Choctaw name which means “Father of Waters.”–JW

John 7:38 KJV
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

Father in heaven,
You wrote Your name over this state. Yet we in the state of Mississippi sinned, and ours is a history of shame.
Oh, that we may awaken to the promise of our name! Oh, that we may believe all that You are!
Oh, that rivers of living water would flow from this state and fill the Mississippi valley to overflowing.
Flow, living water, flow. Flow over the sites of slavery, racial violence, oppression, broken families, despair, mistrust, hopelessness, and helplessness. Heal our wounded land, and stir our hearts with the sounds of living water and song.
Father of Living Waters, turn the hearts of our people to You. May the blues highway become a highway of praise. Write Your Name large over the Delta! Turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers. Heal us, we pray. Amen.

1 Timothy 6:1-5

Let as many bondservants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and His doctrine may not be blasphemed. (1 Timothy 6:1)
      Jesus, you brought me to my job; help me to be obedient to those you have placed over me. Help me to behave in such a manner that your name is praised and honored.

And those who have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brethren, but rather serve them because those who are benefited are believers and beloved. Teach and exhort these things. (1 Timothy 6:2)
      Father, please bless my managers and help them profit from my work.

If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, (1 Timothy 6:3)
      Holy Spirit, please give me discernment about the words and teaching of others.

he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, (1 Timothy 6:4)
      Jesus, please help us recognize the consequences of entering into such disputes: the fruit if bitter and does not feed the soul.

useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself. (1 Timothy 6:5)
      Holy Spirit, godliness with contentment is great gain: help us make the choices for godliness and trusting in Jesus to provide for us. Enable us to say with Paul: “Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:11-13)
