40 Days to Save America – Day 8

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 8
Merciful Father, we bow before Your throne. Forgive our nation for we have sinned against You greatly. We ask You to once again to have mercy upon our nation. Please do not remove Your hand of blessing from America. We beg of You, to ignite a renewed passion within the body of Christ to fall on our knees in prayer.
Grant our nation leaders who are led by You and guided by Your sovereign Will. Do not let the G-dless and their ways succeed. Transform hearts and minds in this nation. Raise up a generation that will serve You alone. Revive our nation for Your glory. In Yeshua' name, Amen.
