Day 1 - Prayer for America

1. Pray for a great outpouring of God's Spirit on America (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17).
2. Pray for the President and Vice President, that their hearts would be guided by God, that their decisions would be wise, and that their leadership would be principled.

My prayer:


Father God,

We turn to you today to bring our country to you in prayer. Our country is a nation that is hurting right now. There is so much going wrong and so much that needs to be done. No one wants to take that first step in faith...and so I am praying that you will guide each and every soul in this nation to look to You for your guidance to do what is right and forgo what is wrong.

I lift President Bush and Vice President Cheney up to you Lord. Wrap your loving arms strongly around them and guide them to choose what is right for our country. The crises we face right now are many, but simple faith in You can change this. I ask that you give discernment to President Bush to aid our financial crisis - that he makes the right choices to protect our financial institutions without causing everything else to suffer. Give him and all our other leaders the guidance to make the right choices.

amen.
Pres Bush and VP Cheney get such a raw deal but I think they're good men, doing a VERY hard job.
