National Prayer:

Our Dear Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name we come humbly before You and ask Your forgiveness for our sins and the sins of our nation.  We acknowledge that You are the Lord of lords, King of kings, the One True God.  We ask that you touch the hearts of our leaders to turn to You and do Your will.  We ask that they come to know Jesus as their personal Savior and seek to follow Your word. We ask that you give us a President who will serve You, uphold Your commandments, and love and protect Your people.  Help us to love our enemies.

We pray for the Senate, Congress, judges, and all elected officials at the Federal, State, county, and city levels.  May they hear Your voice and give You their lives in service to America -- one nation under God.  May they not follow their own political ambitions, but serve out of love for their fellow man.  Lord, help us to replace the leaders who have only selfish ambitions with God-fearing servants who respect life at all stages.  Satan, we bind you in Jesus’ Name from influencing our leaders.

Dear Lord, protect our country, especially our borders, from terrorists and those who plot evil.  We ask that You give charge to Your angels to protect us from all harm, in Jesus’ Name.  Defend Israel and we pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Jesus, we thank You for dying and shedding Your blood to cleanse us from our sins and deliver us from the evil one – Satan.  We cover this entire country with the blood of Jesus to shield us from evil.

Jesus, thank You for rising so that we may have eternal life.  Thank You for our daily bread.

Lord, strengthen us and our families to be the heroes of America today.  May we be witnesses of Your love, grace, strength, and power.

Thank You, Father.  We Love you. Thy will be done.  In Jesus’ mighty name we pray.  Amen.
