40 Days to Save America – Day 22

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.

Day 22
Heavenly Father, we ask for a rebirth of an understanding of the difference between right and wrong. Lead us, O G-d in Your ways of thinking, saying and doing the right thing. L-rd, we hunger for a return to virtue in America. We ask You to help us recover virtue in our individual lives and the life of our country.
We ask that ethics, honor, integrity, morality, goodness, wholesomeness, fidelity, character, respect and manners gain prominence as virtues in our land. As the author of right and wrong, we ask You to rekindle in us a clear sense of moral truth in America.
We ask that You foil all efforts to re-define ethics apart from You and Your truth. We ask for leaders of impeccable ethical character and conduct.
We ask for the widespread teaching of ethics in our homes and educational institutions... not for the purpose of staying out of trouble, but for the ethical value of doing the right thing by You. In Yeshua's name, Amen.

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' name, Amen.
