40 Days to Save America – Day 29

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 29
Father G-d, we pray for Your hand to be upon the healing and restoration of marriage and marriages in America. We ask You to quicken us to the importance of marriage as You defined it. We ask You to lead husbands and wives in how best to love one another.
We pray that the union of one man and one woman will be embraced by all societies as the sole form of legitimate marriage and the proper basis of family.
We ask that the power of Your hand intervene to transform and heal the hearts of those who would attempt to re-define marriage. 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.
