Gracious Heavenly Father, we thank You for all the blessings You bestow upon us. We thank You for Your Son, who gave His life for us, even though we were so undeserving. Lord, we pray You will help us to live as He did, in purity, love, truth, and goodness, and we pray You will forgive us when we fail. We pray for forgiveness of all our sins. We pray You will deliver us from all evil. And, we pray for our daily bread, the physical and spiritual, and we thank You for Your provisions that we accept in full faith.
Lord, help us to cherish this day, and to live as it is our last, giving You all glory, worshiping Your name in every action we take, and as the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God..
Lord, we humble ourselves before You and pray that You will allow us to help the less fortunate. Lord, help all Americans to realize that even the poorest of Americans is rich compared to most of the world. Lord, we pray for forgiveness of the arrogance we as Americans often display, blaspheming Your name, making a mockery of it, forgive us Lord, and lead us Lord back to a saving Grace.
Lord, we pray You will intercede in the evil that has overtaken this nation that pledged allegiance to You from it’s beginning, who set its focus on worshiping Christ as our savior, and creating laws that would follow the guide He set before us, yet not forcing anyone to worship in any set way, or under any particular church group, or set of beliefs.
Lord, we pray You will remove the people who would murder babies before they are even born, or condone lifestyles in which You have condemned. Lord, we pray You will remove from leadership any who profess themselves to be God, by creating laws that go beyond your laws. Lord, we pray You raise up leaders in this country that will proclaim, and worship Your name, and lead this country back to a country, a nation, one nation under God.
Lord, allow us to proclaim liberty from evil, but not from worship You. Lord, help us to rewind the clock, take us back to a time when all children learned to read and write from Your scripture, growing in a healthy knowledge of Your word. Lord, help us to stop glorifying these early leaders who removed You from education, and set our sights on those who understand the need for Christian training in schools.
We pray this in the name of the savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
