40 Days to Save America – Day 9


 
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 9
Holy Father, we praise You for the blessings we share as citizens of the United States. Thank You for providing us with all that we need and more.
We pray for our leaders. We ask that You give them wisdom and understanding. May the deliberations and decisions of government reflect what is holy and good in Your sight.
L-rd, we ask for wisdom and guidance as we vote to select our leaders in the upcoming election. We take the stewardship responsibilities You've given to us seriously. We seek to vote for leaders who will be Your agents on earth and will conduct the affairs of state in a manner that gives glory to You.
Thank You for Your love and support. May all that we do and say be a blessing to You and our nation. In Yeshua' name, Amen.

  2. The only way America will be saved is if God saves her. We all certainly need to be in prayer for the upcoming election. It will have such an impact on which way the country will go. Thank you for sharing.
    Blessings,
