40 Days to Save America – Day 18

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 18
Blessed L-rd, we ask for Your guidance in how to best promote the well-being of our citizens. We thank You, Father, for founders who referred to You as Providence itself. Help us, O G-d, to truly honor our national motto: In G-d We Trust.
Bring us to a full understanding of the founders' Constitutional intent behind allowing government the power to promote the general welfare. We ask You to help us reverse the trend to look to government to provide for us, take over for us, and then take us over.
As Your church, we pray for Your guidance in how best to help the least of our neighbors. In Yeshua's name, Amen.

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.
