NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER MAY 02, 2013
It’s no secret that in today’s America, religious freedom is under threat from within.
Many folks do not realize this, but the U.S. House of Representatives opens in prayer every day. You couldn’t find this in a public school, our local meetings, and even in public spaces such as restaurants — Christians at prayer is considered to be some sort of hate speech.
Today marks the 62nd National Day of Prayer. America needs it more than ever.
Today — or perhaps tonight with your family — take a moment to pray for our country.
Pray for national healing.
Pray for spiritual revival, for a sense of renewal and encouragement.
Pray that America might turn its face back to God.
Pray that God will continue to protect America.
Pray for those who keep America safe.
Pray for our children and grandchildren, that we might leave an America worthy of inheritance.
Pray for our elected officials, that God may grant them wisdom.
Pray for those who are lost.
Pray for those who are searching.
Pray for those who are tempted.
Pray for the faithful, that they may remain strong in their faith.
Pray for an America that once again can be proud of its faith, its institutions, and its leaders.
It is not easy to be a Christian in today’s America. It is all the more reason why we have a responsibility — and a unique privilege — to stand tall for American values today.
