40 Days to Save America – Day 11

For 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.

Day 11
L-rd G-d, as we humble ourselves in prayer, and seek You and turn from our wicked ways, we thank You for Your promise to hear, to forgive and to heal our land. In the spirit of humility, we ask You to open the hearts of Americans and draw us to seek You and Your purposes above all else. We humbly ask You to remove our fabrications of who You are, and for You to reveal Yourself to us.
Almighty G-d, create in us hearts to please You and bring You honor. We pray that we Americans will honor You in speech, and resist abuses of Your name. In Yeshua' name, Amen.
