I am going to post a prayer in my diary daily for the next 40 days. I hope that many of you will read and share with others. We must look to the Lord and past politics if we are to have a chance to spare this nation.
DAY 1 - 40 DAYS OF PRAYER FOR AMERICA:
Dear Father in Heaven, in Jesus' name I humbly approach Your throne. You are worthy of all praise and glory. Great is Your faithfulness, Oh Lord. We fully understand and are grateful for the fact that America was birthed first in Your heart. We acknowledge that America has been a blessed nation above all the nations of the world. Hallelujah!
But we also acknowledge that we have forgotten as a people that it was You and Your laws that made this country the land of freedom and opportunity that has been the envy of the world for more than two hundred years. Dear Lord, forgive us of our pride and apathy that has allowed men to call good, evil; and evil, good. We acknowledge that we have grown calloused to the daily deluge of sinful activity, degradation and speaking that has become the routine in American life, and we repent.

We ask that you grant them wisdom and discernment, Lord, and that you make them bold to do what is right in Your sight. Lord, we ask that you direct their hearts to do Your will. Amen.
