I come before your throne with praise on my lips for you are holy and mighty. Everything is subject to your will. I bow before you in awe and reverence for we are your people and the sheep of your pasture.
We are in trouble Lord. Economic hard times are upon us; much of our own making. Spiritual bankruptcy rules our land. May you look upon us with favor and draw the people of this country back to a right relationship with you through your loving kindness.
I thank you for your loving kindness. You do not treat us as our sins deserve but pour your grace and mercy over us.
Forgive us, Lord, for our sins. We have all turned aside to our own agenda and placed you second many times. Forgive the people of this country who have rejected you and sought to replace your truth with lies.
Uphold those who preach your word in season and out. Protect them from the evil one and strengthen them in their inner beings.
I lift up my brothers and sisters around the world who suffer for your great name. Strengthen their hearts and protect them that they may be counted with those who overcome. May you enable them to take up your armor so that they can withstand the evil they battle.
Holy God, you put rulers in place and depose them at your word. I pray that your will would be done on earth as it is in heaven.
I pray that your great name would continue to be upheld on Earth as it is in Heaven. Strengthen those who write and publish your word that hearts may be comforted, minds encouraged, and souls redeemed.
Father, I ask that you would grant us the wisdom to discern your truth. Lead us into all righteousness for your name’s sake.
I invite you to add your own prayer in the comments and post a prayer on the National Day of Prayer’s website at www.ndptf.org.
