40 Days to Save America – Day 39

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 39

G-d Almighty, we plead with You to guide, guard, convict and correct all candidates, campaigns, consultants, political operatives and staff members. We ask You to draw them to integrity before the voters of this country. Give them the will to honestly place their values and visions before the voters, free of manipulation and deception. We ask You to expose and defeat those who lie.

We pray, L-rd, against the voter fraud that has so crippled our confidence in the electoral process. We ask You to expose and bring to justice those who would undermine free and fair elections. Rid our system of corruption, we pray.

O L-rd, give us the wisdom and the courage to confidently and winsomely take a stand for Your truth with my fellow citizens. 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 Henry A. Waxman
Vice President Joe Biden        U.S. Representative Daniel Webster
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton       U.S. Representative Peter Welch
Attorney General Eric Holder            U.S. Representative Allen B. West
Chief Justice John Roberts     U.S. Representative Lynn A. Westmoreland
Justice Samuel Alito   U.S. Representative Ed Whitfield
Justice Anthony Kennedy       U.S. Representative Frederica S. Wilson
Justice Elena Kagan    U.S. Representative Joe Wilson
Justice Sonia Sotomayor        U.S. Representative Robert J. Wittman
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg U.S. Representative Frank R. Wolf
Justice Stephen Breyer           U.S. Representative Steve Womack
Justice Antonin Scalia            U.S. Senator Jim Webb
Justice Clarence Thomas        U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse

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.
