A prayer for our Country
Dearest Heavenly Father,
You are the foundation of Nations,
raising them up to serve and care for
Send forth Your Spirit, O Lord,
and make this Nation a source of
wisdom and strength,
justice and integrity
In Jesus Name,
National Day of Prayer
Pray For Election Day
"Throughout Scripture, we see that God answers prayer and He cares about the health of nations," NDP Vice Chairman Brian Toon said. "The 'Pray for Election Day!' campaign is an effort to remind people of faith of the importance of praying for those in leadership. We are asking people to fast and pray for the upcoming presidential primaries, caucuses and of course, the national election."
* First, we must repent for the personal and corporate sins that grieve our Heavenly Father. 2 Chronicles 7:14 "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
* Secondly, we must ask that God would raise up righteous leaders, who will seek His guidance and protection for our nation in the years to come. Ephesians 4:1-2 "Live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love."
* Finally, we must submit to God's sovereignty, trusting in His will. Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
VOTE... Your vote is similar to a rock thrown into water, that sends a ripple across the lake.
As Americans we are blessed to live under a representative government which allows us to choose our leaders by casting our votes. Every vote counts! Between January 3-June 3, 2008 states will hold presidential primaries and caucuses. Your prayers and your vote can make a difference!
