40 Days to Save America – Day 26

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 26
Heavenly Father, we ask that You open our eyes to our responsibility as individuals and bodies of believers to minister to those in poverty and distress. Forgive Your followers, L-rd, and deliver us from abdicating our responsibilities to care for the needy.
We ask You to move in our hearts to make us a generous people, not only with our finances, but with our time and our talents. Open our eyes, L-rd, to clearly see honest needs around us, and show us how to serve those needs most effectively.
We pray for authentic, radical Christianity. 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. In Yeshua's name, Amen.
