Suggested prayers ...
Thank You for our founders' foresight in establishing our G-d-given right to pursue our own destiny.
L-rd, give Americans the desire to realize happiness through the pursuit of virtue.
We ask You to lead Americans away from the futility of chasing after false gods.
O G-d, we ask for freedom from addiction for our people.
We pray for an end to materialism in our nation. We ask for Your forgiveness for our foolish longings for more things rather than longing for You.
Thank You for giving us a hunger that only You can satisfy.
Yes, Father, I agree and offer these prayers in the name of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach. Amain.
