40 Days to Save America – Day 36

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 36
Father, we ask for Your wisdom, discernment and strength in all our dealings with other nations. L-rd, as we pray for the restoration of America, we pray that You would make America a light to the world.
Father in heaven, allow us to restore a sense of national dignity. Teach us once again to be a virtuous people, worthy of respect. Allow the world to see Your truth displayed in our citizenry.
G-d of our Fathers, forgive our failures to seek Your guidance as we interact with the nations of Your world. Please give Your perspective on this world and Your wisdom to all those who represent America in official dealings with other nations.

As our citizens travel abroad, L-rd, we ask You to quicken us to represent our nation honorably. We pray that America would take the lead in ending greed and corruption around Your world.
May we be a blessing to all nations, L-rd, but we especially ask You to lead us in our attitude and dealings with the nation of Israel, and to pray for the peace of Jerusalem in accordance with Your Holy Scriptures.
We ask You to lead and convict those who set foreign policy with a full understanding of Your Scriptural mandate to bless Israel. In Yeshua’s name, Amen.

L-rd, 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, 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.
