40 Days to Save America – Day 30

Please accept my apologies for not posting yesterday.  I was attending a writer's retreat .

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.  
You may sign up to have these prayers mailed directly to you at this link:

Day 30
Lord God, we pray for healing and restoration of true manhood and womanhood in America. We ask for Your wisdom and protection against attempts to re-define our very identity as men and women.
We pray for Your design for abundant and fulfilled manhood, womanhood and marriage to gain preeminence in America.
We pray for a full restoration of the image and definition of manhood and womanhood in America.
We petition You, God for Your healing for those who struggle with same-sex attraction. May they come to know Your power, Your mercy and Your love as You replace unnatural affections with ones You Yourself designed. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Prayer for Leaders
"The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord; He directs it like a watercourse wherever He pleases."  Proverbs 21:1
Lord God, we ask for Your blessing on the lives of these leaders in our nation:
President Barack Obama U.S. Representative Tom Price
Vice President Joe Biden U.S. Representative Benjamin Quayle
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton U.S. Representative Mike Quigley
Attorney General Eric Holder U.S. Representative Nick J. Rahall

We ask that You turn their hearts towards You, Lord. We ask that You soften their hearts, Lord, to recognize and receive truth. Lord, 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, Lord, and that You make them bold to do what is right in Your sight. Lord, we ask that You direct their hearts to do Your will. In Jesus' name, Amen.
