40 Days to Save America – Day 15

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 15
L-rd G-d, we ask for leaders, a judicial system and judges who adhere to the original intent of our founding documents and their many connections to Biblical principles. We pray for a true understanding of justice according to Your word.
We pray for Your protection from attempts to redefine justice for political gain. We ask You to convict, transform and protect those who are out of Your will. We ask You to encourage, strengthen and protect those who honor and follow You.
We ask You for judges who will follow Constitutional principles rather than ruling according to pre-chosen outcomes or relying on international law. We pray that courts will recognize parents' fundamental rights to the care, custody and control of their children.
We ask for Your guidance for accurate rulings over first amendment issues, and an awareness in our country that the words, "separation of church and state" are found nowhere in any one of our founding documents. We ask for a reversal of rulings which have inaccurately established "separation" as a Constitutional principle. In Yeshua's name, Amen.

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's name, Amen.
