The latest Barna Survey on Christian men in America looks even worse for the men of God, the deeper into the survey we go. We can begin turning the Titanic of modern believers around "BY FAITH".
The text used here is all of Hebrews 11 (NASB)

Barna Surveys 2021 released a stunning series of number of Christian men who are in deep personal crisis and may not know how to get out of it.
In this sort series, we dig into those numbers and then go to the Bible to see how the Lord wants us - His men, His servants to conduct ourselves as Christians and His witnesses here on earth.
Text used in this brief video: Titus 2:2 and Titus 2:6-8.

Our Father in Heaven, Oh King of the Universe, You, Oh God are the great Liberator of all time. You, Who sent Your One of a kind Son, The Lord Jesus Christ on the greatest rescue mission of all the ages, stand as the Almighty, with Whom there is no question.
We do not question Your Power, Your Majesty, Your Authority.
We do not question Your Grace, compassion and mercy.
We do not question Your ability to see the End from the Beginning – thereby setting in motion plans and purposes which, if we follow them as You intend, will both glorify You and enrich our brief lives on earth.
Father, today, we see the hearts of people – the oppressed around the world, from Cuba to China, from Cairo to Calcutta, from Russia to Peru and Johannesburg – yearning to be free. In most cases, the freedom for which they yearn is due to the sinful heavy hands of evil men and systems. But Lord, You have said in Your Word, that the people living in darkness have seen a great light.
That Light came into the world in Bethlehem Ephrathah as prophesied in Micah 5:2 and it was for freedom that He set us free. While it is not the freedom from the demonic tyranny of this world, it is even more glorious indeed.
We thank You oh Lord, that Jesus freed us from the bondage of oppressive sin.
We thank You, that He not only broke the yoke of sin, but killed death at the Cross.
We thank You, that He rescues us from the domain of darkness, that we can walk freely in His Marvelous Light.
Even as more crucial on this side of Heaven, we thank You, that He – King Jesus – sent the Holy Spirit to be our Counselor, our Guide, Our Protector, our Defender and our Seal of Redemption until the day we die.
We thank You, oh Marvelous Father, that he whom Jesus sets free is indeed free and can walk in that solid truth all the days of our lives here on earth.
So today, oh Lord, to those to whose ears have received a call to come unto You, may they respond immediately to the liberating truth and freedom of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Your offer is open to ALL peoples from every single corner of the almost 8 billion alive on earth today. We pray, that even though precious few will accept Your free gift of eternal life, may their number increase daily, as many around the world march and cry out for rescue. We ask all of this, in the Precious, Beautiful, Liberating and the Most Powerful Name of Jesus, the soon coming King, amen and amen.

Oh Most Holy Father of Heaven and Earth, as we come to a very quick close to the first half of 2021, we are reminded that a thousand days are like a day in Your Sight and still our days are like but a fleeting breath on this earth.
In the sad days, in which we live, we see many who are prospering off the conditions of this world, while the majority are left to seek and find their own comfort in things and systems which Your Word did not prescribe. To those who persevered through the storms and the lockdowns and the trauma of losing loved ones to Covid or other unnatural incidents….those who stayed close to You and grounded themselves in Truth while reaching out and loving others, and even those who are seeking Truth and discovering themselves in confusion, Lord – You are Lord of us all.
So today, Father, as we look back on our successes and failures of the first six months of this year, we commit our way to You.We commit our very lives and souls into Your Care.We pray for those who are seeking but cannot find their way. Lord send Your Holy Spirit to beckon them on to You.
We pray for those who once walked with You, yet used Christian liberty to join in the world’s corruption, stayed there and need to find a way out before it is too late. Give them a helping Hand and a real mirror from Heaven so they can see who they have become….and turn back to You.
We trust You, we who are called by Your Name. We trust ONLY You and there is no other.
We trust that You would act on our behalf when the hounds of hell nip at or hells. We will keep the Faith.
We trust that our Hope is built on nothing else but Jesus’ Blood and Righteousness. We will stand on Your Word.
We trust that when dark clouds overwhelm and the fiery darts fly our way, we will remember our Helmet of Salvation.
Lord, may Your righteousness shine like the sun rising on early dawn.
May Your justice reign supreme like the sun on high noon, overhead.
May Your Peace rule our hearts so that no matter what the world throws at us, we remain secure in You.
May Your Son, one day, ride from the split in the Eastern Sky, as He returns to retake that which was His from the beginning.
Spread Your faithful love over those who know, love, obey, trust and called You Lord.
Bring Your healing balm into the hearts of those who remain upright and true to You.
Do not let the arrogant, prideful and evil ones come near Your Faithful servants.
We trust in the Lord, abide in You, delight in You, oh Lord, because You have given us the desires of our hearts – the Lord Jesus Christ and it is in His Name we pray, and praise forever and a day, amen and amen.

The Bible says, oh Great God of the Universe, that the depths of the earth are in Your Hands and so are the mountain peaks. We know the seas are Yours, and recall how Your Holy Spirit hovered over the surface of the dark and called dry land into being.
You are the real Climate Changer, the Miracle Worker, the Promise Keeper of all promise keepers and the Way the Truth and the Life. We kneel before You, oh Matchless Maker of all mankind.
Nothing was, until You spoke.
No one was saved, I AM became flesh and dwelt amongst us.
No one had hope, until the Resurrection.
No one could access Your Throne Room, until the Veil was torn – from the TOP down! Hallelujah, You are good.
You, oh God are our God. There is no other
You, oh Lord, are our portion in the land of the living.
You, Mighty King, rule the hearts of your people.
You, Sovereign Lord, are Lord of all and one day EVERY knee will bow to You, including those who reject You now, thereby following their father the devil as sons of perdition.
Let those of us, who hear Your Voice, immediately turn from our worldly ways, repent and be made right before You.
Let those of us, who are weak and doubting and are not sure of just Who You are, have an real encounter with You, Lord Jesus.
Let those of us, who are pressed down on every side, realized we are not crushed, because You hold us up with Your righteous Right Hand.
Let those of us, who are perplexed and confused by the tribulations of this world, find hope in the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Let those of us, who feel struck down and walked on, realized that no one can really destroy us, because we are Your children, the people who once walked in the darkness but now have seen the great Light!
Hallelujah, thank You Jesus.
At the start of a new day and week, we sing a new song to You and pray the entire world sings its refrain.
We praise Your Holy Name
We worship You in spirit and in truth and proclaim Your Salvation from day to day, first in our own lives and then in our households.
We declare Your Majesty as there is none like You, oh Mighty King.
Thank You for watching over, protecting, guiding and providing and for Who You are, on Lord of our hearts and my heart and those who love, obey and were transformed by the same Spirit Who raised Jesus from the Dead. We worship and adore You, dear King of Heaven, in the Mighty and Strong Name of Jesus Christ, the Lord of all, amen and amen.

Oh Great Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we thank You that You are the God Who calls us unto Yourself, depraved sinners though we are, who can be redeemed only by the Precious Blood of Your dear Son, the Savior.

You, oh Most Gracious Heavenly Father, preserve both mankind and nature in Your lovingkindness and compassion. How precious You are dear merciful Abba, our loving Father Who sees all, knows all but still loves us all.
When the hounds of hell nip at our hells, we run to the Cross.
When the trials of the times trip us up, we fall at the foot of the Cross.
When burdens and battles wear us down, we find refuge with King Jesus at the Cross.
At the Cross, we first saw the Light.
At the Cross, He beckoned us to come make it right.
At the Cross, He restored our sight and turned the darkness of night into peels of tremendous joy.
You, oh God, are from everlasting to everlasting.
You stand at the door and knock.
You run to the prodigal.
You comfort the broken-hearted.
You bind up the wounded.
You fill empty hearts.
We stand in perfect awe of You. We who take refuge in the shadow of Your Wings, drink in the abundance of Your Favor. With You, oh God, there is the Fountain of Life, filled with Living Water!
We pray that this hour, this day, this week, this month, this year that Your Righteousness be installed and firmly embedded in the hearts of the faithful.
May Your Holy Righteousness remove all pride, sin and shame and replace them with hope, love, peace, joy and contentment.
May we always be contented to be called Kingdom Children - Your children - saints of the Most High, in Whom we delight and may we always be grateful for that Glorious Day, when You first called us to Yourself, saved us and put a new robe on us, Your new creation.
We thank You and glory in Your Presence. We magnify, adore and praise You, oh Lord, in the Mighty and strong Name of King Jesus, amen and amen.

Most gracious and good Heavenly Father, You are the God Who forgives and takes our sins away from us, as far as the East is from the West.
