Dear Heavenly Father, we are so blessed to be your children,
to be living in this day and time, where we can see your prophecy being poured
out on mankind and have no fear because we count you as our Lord and protector.
Thank you God for your Word that tells us of all these events, and that when we
keep our eyes and heart focused on you and your Word, we don’t have to worry. We ask for forgiveness when we have walked off
the path you have set out for us, when we have taken our eyes off of you, and
when we have lived for ourselves. We pray for our nation that she would be
joyful once again, following your instructions and searching for you. We pray
for the people of our land that have lived outside your will and in doing so
have brought the charges of sin upon our nation. As a church we are commanded
to love and to share you and your Good News with all the world, we have fallen
short dear God, leaving these commands for others to take part of instead of
doing our part. We have forgotten that as the hand and feet of Jesus, we are
the body of Christ and our purpose is to share you with every soul on this
earth. We know the season is approaching and the harvest is ripe, we pray for
laborers to be present and to do their part; that no one would be silenced, but
instead have great boldness in declaring you as the one and only true God. We
pray for every person that is joining us in prayer these 40 days, that they
would be strengthened by you and your Holy Spirit. We pray for hearts to be
made right with you, that lives would be lived for you, that there would be no
luke warm churches, instead churches with passion for serving you and others.
We pray for a unity among believers to bless and encourage one another. We pray
that the church would stand up and use the voice they have been given by God to
lead their congregations as you would have them be led. We pray for the leaders
in this country, that they would be directed by you and follow you with their
actions and not just their words. We know the enemy is roaming about like a
lion, looking for whom he can devour – Lord we pray that we would stand firm
against him and be strong in our faith. We pray for each and every heart that
has felt hollow or cold, trying to fill the void that only you can fill God –
our hearts were meant to be filled by you, so the desires and pleasures of the
flesh are not a substitute but a counterfeit of the solution. We pray that each
heart realize the solution to our country and this election and that without
hesitation they would make the right decision in the ballot box on Nov 6th
Thank you in advance for these things and we give you all the honor and glory,
in Jesus name we pray ~ AMEN
