Lord, bless every person who serves or who has served as well as their families in the exact way they need. We are land of the free only because of the brave. Thank You! In Jesus’ name, Amen

humbly written out as “heard” on November 10, 2015 by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro © 2015

Lord God, You know. You see. You were with them on the battlefield. You were with them in the camps. You were with them on base and at home with their families and You are with them still.  Lord, we have no power; we have only our prayers.

We come to You because we know who You are. All powerful, wonderful Lord. Though we work for peace. Here it will never fully be for this is the world where the adversary runs rampant seeking to ruin hearts. This is not heaven.  Here there will always be conflict and war. Here there will always be times we must stand up for ourselves and fight back.

Lord, we remain land of the free because of the brave. Help them because they help us. Help them. We know You see and know and yet You ask us to partner with You in prayer to birth on earth that which You have already purposed in heaven.

Lord, we call forth Your perfect provision and protection for every service member and every veteran and every member of their families at every place along their life journey.  Take care of them as they take care of us!

Be with the ones still serving and give them Your strategy.  Be with the ones just beginning and give them Your courage.  Be with the ones who have finished their service and give them their place in society where they can continue to contribute and contribute well for their hearts remain to serve even though their time in the military is done.

Come to our enemies in dreams and visions and help them gain an understanding that You are there. Shine Your Light in their darkness in magnificent miraculous ways so that they might turn and find You.  As they do, Lord remove the need they feel to take ground from other countries. Usher Your peace into their hearts to re-build their own families and homes—and to build these on and in love instead of on a foundation of attack, anger and hate.

Lord, we will do whatever You ask of us to serve those who serve and have served. You have answers. These are the answers we seek.  Speak to us; we are listening. Answer our prayers according to Your promises. Lord God, as long as they are, we will stay and pray and bow down and worship until the fullness of Your answer is seen for we have placed all hope and trust in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen

Author: Elizabeth Fulgaro

I am a God-seeker--a Jesus-worshipper--a Holy Spirit follower. I create songs, devotions, prayers, books and Bible studies to give words with which to get to know God more. For you. Its for one-on-One encounter unto transformed, transcendent living. This is not my vocation. I am not professional. I am a real, ordinary person just looking to do what God put me here to do. (You have a unique purpose too.) So I am called to the work. It is not my income source, but my gift to those who find it blessing. Eagles Nest Foundation sponsors all projects for you. The result: pure, clean spiritual nutrition to feed that deep insatiable spiritual hunger which eventually overtakes each of us and galvanizes you to the life God has for you. This life is purposeful. Exceptional. You--yes, you--are called to something greater and more satisfying in His service. So it is hoped you'll try this spiritually dense nutrition and find it to be a personal blessing. However, the goodness of God-following doesn't stop there. He uses those who seek Him to be His love and care (justice, mercy, advocate, kindness) very tangibly in the lives of those around you. Not by your power but by His. His ideas. God ideas. Not just good ideas. To be part of changing the world, if you will let Him. You learn to just follow where He leads. That if you listen, He will teach you to hear His voice and then when you obey His inner promptings you will become His incredible hands and feet in this hard world. These materials will help! They will help you aim your life towards God in a way you never look back. You will not be the same. He will become the River in your desert spaces and you will become a conduit of this same River of refreshing, replenishing Water of Life to others. Find a prayer. Pick a blog post. Read a book. Be led deeper into the Bible. Select a song which resonates and use it and use it again to go close and ever closer to the God who longs to draw you near. Oh, and don't be tempted to think I'm a crazy over-spiritualized loony...My background is financial planning and counseling. Almost 40 years of it. To choose to believe in God is not to leave practicality and reason behind, but to learn that there is that which goes beyond it and includes it, unto true life fulfillment beyond all your dreams for the one who keeps seeking Him. I am a third generation Californian. I am a person to whom family means everything. The only priority higher is God. The foothills of the Sierra Nevada are my home. It is here the 1849-1856 Gold Rush is still glorified. Easy money? Actually only for the few. Even though I was raised in the Church, it took me ten years of doubting God even existed to realize that without Him, no matter how much of this life's "stuff" is accumulated, I actually have nothing. To come to know that all those who chased after gold are dead and all those who still chase stuff will be dead. That's when I became a God-seeker. Looking for that more. And Eureka! (This is California's state slogan and means I found it.) I found God...or rather, I discovered He was there and had been there waiting for me to look for Him the whole time. May you discover more of Him for you, greater flourishing life and greater flourishing for all in the world as well. God bless you! ~Elizabeth
