40 Days to Save America – Day 14


 

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.  
You may sign up to have these prayers mailed directly to you at this link:
Day 14
Heavenly Father, please awaken and lead our people and our leaders to a reverent understanding and adherence to Your laws. L-rd, You have written Your laws on our hearts, and yet we are constantly bombarded with messages that blur those laws. We ask You to defeat the efforts of those who would attempt to rid our culture of clarity and adherence to Your laws.
We ask You to lead America's citizens, the courts, and law schools to the restoration of respect for Your law and the law of the land. In Yeshua' 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
L-rd G-d, we ask for Your blessing on the lives of these leaders in our nation:
President Barack Obama
U.S. Representative Elton Gallegly
Vice President Joe Biden

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. In Yeshua' name, Amen.

  2. First, I applaud you for taking the problems in our country to heart and going to God in prayer with them. Prayer is a wonderful gift! Here is a question: Could it be that the very problems you have noticed are part of what Jesus prophesied for the time of the end? (Matthew 24, 1 Tim 3:15) and that the solution isn't the "fixing" of our government but is found in God's kingdom? After all, what was the first thing Jesus taught his followers to pray for in the Lord's prayer? "Let your kingdom come" And Daniel 2:44 tells us that "God WILL set up a kingdom to crush all earthly kingdoms...." Just looking at this from a different perspective, something to think about. :)
