40 Days to Save America – Day 38





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 38
Teach us, L-rd, to value our role as citizens. Awaken in the electorate a desire to know the true principles upon which this country was built, and draw us to Your vision for the restoration of our beloved country.

We ask for leaders and a citizenry who truly understand our accountability before You as the ultimate and sovereign Authority.

As our citizens go through the process of deciding how to vote, we ask L-rd, that You guide our thoughts with Your desires for our nation. We ask You to grant our citizens the wisdom to discern truth from deception. In Yeshua’s name, Amen.

Prayer for Leaders
"The king's heart is in the hand of the L-rd; He directs it like a watercourse wherever He pleases."  Proverbs 21:1

L-rd G-d, we ask for Your blessing on the lives of these leaders in our nation:
President Barack Obama
U.S. Representative Fred Upton
Vice President Joe Biden
U.S. Representative Chris Van Hollen
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
U.S. Representative Nydia M. Velazquez
Attorney General Eric Holder
U.S. Representative Peter J. Visclosky
Chief Justice John Roberts
U.S. Representative Tim Walberg
Justice Samuel Alito
U.S. Representative Greg Walden
Justice Anthony Kennedy
U.S. Representative Joe Walsh
Justice Elena Kagan
U.S. Representative Timothy J. Walz
Justice Sonia Sotomayor
U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz

U.S. Representative Maxine Waters
Justice Stephen Breyer
U.S. Representative Melvin L. Watt
Justice Antonin Scalia
U.S. Senator David Vitter
Justice Clarence Thomas
U.S. Senator Mark R. Warner

We ask that You turn their hearts towards You, L-rd. We ask that You soften their hearts, L-rd, to recognize and receive truth. 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.
