National Day of Prayer

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."  Philippians 4:6 

Today is the National Day of Prayer. Let us all take pause to invite the Lord God into our nation that desperately needs His guidance. We are to pray with thanksgiving. Why would anyone pray with thanksgiving if they didn't believe He would answer their prayer? Pray, knowing He hears you and knowing He will answer your prayers. Remember, God is not a genie. You can not put on your prayer shawl as if you were rubbing His bottle. He will answer your prayers in keeping with His plan. The saddest people I know are those who believe He answered there prayer, gave them what they thought they wanted, only to discover that they wanted was not good for them. Let us pray:

"Oh loving father of us all, I bow before you on this day when our nation is at prayer. I ask that your glorious plan may come to our nation, our families, our friends and ourselves. Sometimes I do not pray for those who have injured me. But, on this day, I pray that my former enemy may be lifted up and blessed with your abounding love, that only your love can flow from them. Our nation is involved in a great decision this year, a decision that will mold and direct our national security, our prosperity, and our standing with you who created this great nation. I ask that your kingdom may come in spirit and in truth and direct my actions that I may help to bring it about in your name. In the name of your son, my savior Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen"
"God gives us stories that testify to His love. Let me tell you mine.”
