40 Days of Prayer - Day 30


Proverbs 24:21-22

My son, fear the LORD and the king; do not associate with those given to change; for their calamity will rise suddenly, and who knows the ruin those two can bring?

Founding Father Quote:

“When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, "just men who will rule in the fear of God." The preservation of government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty; if the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizens will be violated or disregarded. If a republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.”
-Noah Webster


Heavenly Father, we cry out to you as a people desperately in need of Your mercy.  Please forgive us for turning from You, for forsaking our time of prayer and fasting that invites the Holy Spirit to rule and reign in our lives.  We need Your guidance for the very survival of our nation.  Forgive us for allowing those in power to ban days of public prayer.  We ask that You would place righteous men of integrity in the various public offices found throughout our cities, states and country as a whole.  We need men and women who serve You with their whole hearts, never giving in to selfish desires or peer pressure.  May we once again represent the Christian values that founded America.  May we return to a system that seeks for Your approval, not the approval of foreign countries and dictators.  And may America once again prosper under the sheltering wing of Almighty God.  Amen.
