Pray for America - Day 16


 
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
 e-mail box.  I encourage you to join us in praying daily for America
up through the general election on November 6, 2012.
Ethics
Suggested Scriptural references ...
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the unG-dly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the L-rd, and in His law he meditates day and night.  He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. 
 Psalm 1:1-3
May integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for You.  Psalm 25:21

Suggested prayers ...
We ask for a rebirth of an understanding between right and wrong.  Lead us, O G-d, in Your ways of thinking, saying and doing the right thing.
We ask that ethics, honor, integrity, morality, goodness, wholesomeness, fidelity, character, respect and manners gain prominence as virtues in our land.
As the author of right and wrong, we ask You to rekindle in us a clear sense of moral truth in America.
We ask that You foil all efforts to re-define ethics apart from You and Your truth.
We ask for the widespread teaching of ethics in our homes and educational institutions... not for the purpose of staying out of trouble, but for the ethical value of doing the right thing by You.
We ask for leaders of impeccable ethical character and conduct.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Yes, Father, I agree and also pray that I will always look to Your ways and Your Word as the standard for my actions and decisions.  I also pray for Your Word and prayer to return to our schools.  I offer these prayers in the name of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach. Amain.
