40 Days to Save America – Day 40

For 40 Days (September 28 - November 6), I have been 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 40
Thank You, L-rd, that in You America can once again become a “City on a Hill” — Your beacon to the world. We petition You, L-rd, to lead us according to Your plan, in Your timing, with the power of Your Holy Spirit. We know You are infinitely bigger and brighter than the darkness before us.

We ask that You remind us to keep our eyes and minds focused on what is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, and worthy of praise. Help us to elevate conversations and relationships to those higher things. May You be the prompter and completer of any daunting tasks before us. In You only may we find our voice to speak, our strength to move.

G-d in heaven, we pray that America may become a great beacon of Your standards. As the world sees Your ways and Your love demonstrated in this great country, may they be drawn to Your Son. 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.
