National Day of Prayer

I didn't vote for our current president.
I don't agree with many of his policies.

I am going to pray for him today!

Today is the National Day of Prayer, and Christians all across the United States of America will be lifting our nation, its leaders, institutions, and residents up in prayer to our Lord.

You can join in this chorus, and let God know that we believe He is in charge, and His will rules our hearts.

Dear Lord,
We live in a country full of freedoms, that You have given us.
Thank You, Lord, for our leaders, and their talents. Please grant them the knowledge, forethought, and grace to act in dignity and make this nation a better place for Your people.

Please bless our military, Lord, as they protect our God-given rights. Provide them with knowledge and communication that may supersede force in solving conflicts.

We lift up our institutions, including education, health, welfare, and industry. May the leaders in these areas of our lives look to You, Lord, for guidance and instruction in providing for Your people. Please open their hearts, Lord, that they may run our country in a manner which keeps Your people healthy in body, mind, and spirit.

I especially pray for our schools, Lord. May our students be surrounded by Your Glory, in their teachers, administration, and their classmates.

For those in our World that do not know You Lord, let Your faithful followers be beacons of Your Love, and let our actions, prayers, and attitudes Shine with Your Love. Please let all of my fellow Americans see more of You and less of me.

There are prayer guides, as well as a guide of events where Christians will be gathering to pray together all across the country.

I pray that these gatherings will bless those who attend, as well as the prayers they lift up to the Lord.
