40 Days of Prayer - Day 13


Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Founding Father Quote:
“Oh how I wish the people would awake up from their lethargy and come out soul and body for Christ…the more my ideas develop, the more beautiful and grand seems the plan I have laid out to pursue, or rather the one God has destined for me… (Let us pray that the Lord will completely guide us in all things, and that we may gladly be led by Him.)” 
-George Washington Carver: Born a slave in 1864, he became world renowned, addressing presidents and kings.  As a scientist at Tuskegee Institute, he discovered 300 uses of the peanut and 100 uses of the sweet potato.


Jesus, You are the Creator of the universe, and all good and perfect gifts come from above.  You have formed man in your own image, as a creative being.  Forgive us, Lord, for allowing our own foolish greed and selfish ambition to precede our desire for You.  Your Word clearly says to seek first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness, and we have sought everything but You.  We are a people in search of a purpose, when You have given us a design destiny that we have all but avoided.  May we return to seek Your perfect will and purpose for our lives.  Today, we call on Your hand to direct us in every future endeavor, that whatever we put our hands to will prosper to the glory of God the Father.  Reveal to us the person You would have us to be.  We seek Your face, expecting that Your supernatural revelation for our lives is already on the way.  You have given us a future and a hope, and we ask now that You begin to birth that hope anew in our hearts.  Bless us in our businesses, that the work we do will bring honor and glory only to You.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
