40 Days to Save America – Day 21

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 21
L-rd G-d, we thank You for our founders' foresight in establishing our G-d-given right to pursue our own destiny. L-rd, give Americans the desire to realize happiness through the pursuit of virtue. We ask You to lead Americans away from the futility of chasing after false g-ds.
O G-d, we ask for freedom from addiction for our people.
We pray for an end to materialism in our nation. We ask for Your forgiveness for our foolish longings for more things rather than longing for You.
Thank You for giving us a hunger that only You can satisfy. In Yeshua’s name, Amen.
