Day 4 - Prayer for America

My apologies for not posting this...thought I did, but couldn't find it!

7. Pray for the leaders, churches and Christians of California and Colorado.

8. Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring conviction of sin and draw Americans to faith in Christ (John 16:8).

My Heavenly Father,

I raise in prayer to you today, the states of California and Colorado. God, give the leaders of these states the guidance to do what is right for the people. To lead by example, to be strong leaders and models of society so that their constituents can see the shining example of You in their lives. There are many decisions that have been made in these states that are not what You would have, so give discernment to the people in CA and CO to elect the leadership that will honor and glorify You. I pray that the Christians and Churches in these states continue to seek You and honor You and actively set out on missions to bring new believers into Your presence.

Our sins are heavy Lord. You give us the chance to unburden ourselves by taking up Your yoke. Your yoke may, at first sight, seem so heavy, but when we surround ourselves with the mantle of Your shining light in our lives, the light lifts the weight away. Give all of those who have not yet met You a chance to feel the lightness of Your Shining glory by opening their eyes, and softening their hard hearts, so that they may turn to You and receive the free gift You offer to all.

In Your sweet name I pray.
