40 Days to Save America – Day 28

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 28
L-rd, we pray for America's mothers and fathers to live honorably, and for children to honor their fathers and mothers. Help us to honor and care for our elderly.
Lead us to cherish and protect marital fidelity, preserving the foundation of families and the nation.
Protect our children, L-rd, from the sins of their parents. Return the hearts of mothers and fathers to our children. Turn our hearts to our families in this nation.
We ask You, L-rd, to show us how to break the chains of the sins of the generations that have been visited upon us. We plead with You, L-rd, to heal and restore our marriages and families.
Help us, L-rd, to influence our families by speaking Your truth and Your love into their daily lives. Bind our families together with Your unfailing love. In Yeshua's name, Amen.
