40 Days to Save America – Day 20

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 20
Father, we thank You for our founders' great respect for Your gift of free will,
 and for pledging their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to establish
 a government which would protect our G-d-given right to freedom.
As our liberties hang in the balance, we ask O G-d, for Your guidance 
and help in restoring liberty for our children and for generations to come. 
We pray for the freedom to acknowledge You through our public institutions. 
We pray for the freedom of religions conscience without coercion by penalty
 of force of law.
L-rd, from our founding we have upheld the belief that our rights are inalienable
 and come from You, and our first G-d-given right is the freedom of religion. 
Observing what happens in countries where there is no religious liberty, we ask 
You to keep the doors open for true religious freedom and expression in our country. 
We ask You to keep the airwaves open for the full proclamation of the Gospel. 
In Yeshua's name, Amen.
Prayer for Leaders
"The king's heart is in the hand of the L-rd; He directs it like a watercourse

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.
