"It is impossible to govern the world without G-d and the Bible." George Washington
My heart is so burdened for my country. I believe we have strayed so very far from the foundations upon which our nation was built, and we currently are headed for a cliff of destruction. Biblical values are disdained and have been completely cast aside by our citizens as well as our governing officials. Our nation cannot continue to be blessed under these actions, and I am praying for repentance and revival in America.
Yesterday, I met a wonderful woman, Nancy Schulze, who is a part of the American Prayer Initiative. Nancy, along with many other g-dly women such as Shirley Dobson of the National Day of Prayer and Focus on the Family and Penny Nancy of Concerned Women for America, started this effort because they share the same burden of concern for our country. I have joined this initiative and encourage you to join also.
The website is www.americanprayerinitiative.org where you may sign up to receive a daily e-mail reminder to pray. There is also a page on Facebook.
I will be praying daily, and posting their prayer here along with some of my own thoughts and prayers. I hope you will not only pray, but also encourage your church, synagogue, blog readers and everyone you know to pray for our beloved country.
Please join me in this prayer today:
This post is part of a 31 day series from the American Prayer Initiative
You can sign up at the link and have the prayers sent to you daily in your

up through the general election on November 6, 2012.
