40 Days to Save America – Day 19

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 19
Thank You, Father, for founders who established this country on the fact that You created all of us equal. We plead for You to lead all Americans to respect and protect the sacred right to life at every stage.
We pray that our leaders and our people will learn to respect the sanctity of life for all humans, including the aged, the ill, the disadvantaged and the unborn from the moment of conception until natural death.
We pray that Americans will nurture and protect all human life. We plead for an end to the plague of abortion in our nation. We ask You to move in the hearts of judges and legislators to uphold the sanctity and precious gift of every human life.
We ask You, L-rd, to bring deep healing to those who have chosen abortion. We pray that each woman come to know that You have plans for her welfare and not her destruction. We pray for the deep healing of men who have been involved in abortion.
We ask, O G-d, for Your mercy on a nation that is condoning the murder of its own children. Forgive us, convict us and transform us, O G-d, we pray. 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.
