President Washington in Prayer

President Washington in Prayer

The  “40 Days to Save America” observance kicks off today.  There are hundreds of groups and churches participating all over our great nation.  And thousands of Christians are coming together in one mind and of one accord to pray and fast for the healing of our land.  

Here is today’s prayer for America:

Dear Father in Heaven, in Jesus’ name I humbly approach Your throne. You are worthy of all praise and glory. Great is Your faithfulness, Oh Lord. We fully understand and are grateful for the fact that America was birthed first in Your heart. We acknowledge that America has been a blessed nation above all the nations of the world. Hallelujah!

But we also acknowledge that we have forgotten as a people that it was You and Your laws that made this country the land of freedom and opportunity that has been the envy of the world for more than two hundred years. Dear Lord, forgive us of our pride and apathy that has allowed men to call good, evil; and evil, good. We acknowledge that we have grown calloused to the daily deluge of sinful activity, degradation and speaking that has become the routine in American life, and we repent.

Reignite our love for purity and holiness, and create in us a will to initiate the changes in our society that will allow You to once again bless our beloved America. Awaken the Pastors and Christians of America to fall on their knees and repent of their sins, so that You can heal our land. Start with us who pray this prayer.

We love You and adore You, precious Lord. May we see a great awakening in our generation!

This, I pray, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
