40 Days to Save America – Day 1

For the next 40 Days (September 28 - November 6), I will be posting prayers for our country.  These prayers are from the prayer initiative 40 Days to Save America.  
I pray you will join me in this prayer effort.  
You may sign up to have these prayers mailed directly to you at this link:

Day 1
Dear Father in Heaven, in Yeshua Hamashiach (Jesus the Messiah's) name I humbly approach Your throne. You are worthy of all praise and glory. Great is Your faithfulness, Oh L-rd. 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 L-rd, 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.

Reignite our love for purity and holiness, and create in us a will to initiate the changes in our society that will allow You to once again bless our beloved America. Awaken the Pastors and Christians of America to fall on their knees and repent of their sins, so that You can heal our land. Start with us who pray this prayer.
We love You and adore You, precious L-rd. May we see a great awakening in our generation! This, I pray, in Yeshua Hamashiach's (Jesus the Messiah) name. Amen.
Prayer for Leaders
"The king's heart is in the hand of the L-rd; He directs it like a watercourse wherever He pleases." Proverbs 21:1

We ask that You turn their hearts towards You, L-rd. We ask that You soften their hearts, L-rd, to recognize and receive truth. L-rd, we ask that you grant them the understanding and knowledge that come from the fear of You. We ask that you grant them wisdom and discernment, L-rd, and that you make them bold to do what is right in Your sight. L-rd, we ask that you direct their hearts to do Your will. Amen.
