Day 2 - Prayer for America

3. Pray for the leaders, churches and Christians of Alabama and Alaska.

4. Pray that Christian leaders across America would seek God's heart for vision, wisdom and direction. (Jeremiah 33:3)

My Prayer:

Father God,

Today I lift the states of Alabama and Alaska to you. Hear the petitions of the people in those states, Lord. They are your children, and they are asking you for help. Give all the people in leadership positions in those states...the Governors, the Senators, the Representatives...the Judges...the city government leaders....give them all the wisdom to do what is right for their constituents. Be with Alaska as their Governor is part of the Republican Presidential Campaign. Give their Lieutenant Governor the guidance to continue to run that state with You in mind. Let Alaska continue to be on the mind of the Governor, that she may continue to lead from afar. Be with all the leaders in Alabama as they are preparing for their elections. Cover them all with Your grace and love.

As I continue to pray, I ask that you bring the leaders all across America together - to run this country as they know it SHOULD be run...not for THEIR profit, but for the people...and for YOUR glory. Open the ears of those who aren't listening to what is being said...soften the hearts of the hard-hearted - that they may see You in all they do.

In your name I pray.

Excellent point about running for the country not for themselves. I hope they feel that at some point.

About the apples... Lawrence farm on 9W. : ) I love that your familiar with the area. If you like I'd be more then happy to take the boys up and pick you some to send to you. We are granny smith apple snobs in this house so we've been feeding the apples we picked to the horses! Almost criminal.
