40 Days to Save America – Day 23

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 23
Father G-d, we ask for a renewed hunger for Your truth in our land. We ask You to give us a renewed hunger for Your word. May we rediscover both individually and corporately as a nation, that Your word not only lights our path, but provides the roadmap for our journey through life. May we discover how Your truth not only protects, but truly liberates anyone who allows its precepts to be written on the tablets of the human heart.
Draw us, O G-d, to a reverence for the truth of Your word. Grant us the ability to understand right and wrong as defined and determined by Your truth.
We ask You, Father, to grant Americans the ability to know Your true character and the wisdom to discern truth from deception.
We ask that Americans will be lovers of truth, rejecting false witness and distortions of the truth.
In love and humility, may we serve as Your truth Ambassadors. Show us Your perfect balance of living gracefully while championing truth. May our lives be evidence of Your goodness and righteousness. In Yeshua's  name, Amen.
