40 Days of Prayer - Day 36


Psalm 2:10-12
Now therefore, be wise, O kings; be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who trust in Him.
Founding Father Quote:
“The Christian religion—its general principles—must ever be regarded among us as the foundation of civil society.”
-Daniel Webster

Dear God, today our country is suffering from the overwhelming burden of crime and immorality. Our lack of integrity threatens the sanctity of a peaceful life that we know is found only in You. Lord, turn the hearts of every judge in the U.S. Judiciary, from the local to the national level. May each man and woman seek Your face in the laws they are making and upholding. May You grant them the wisdom of Solomon. Protect their minds and hearts from deception and make them single-minded, not wavering in their faith. We thank You for our system of checks and balances and ask that You restore and preserve it. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
To show partiality in judging is not good:
Whoever says to the guilty, “You are innocent,”
will be cursed by peoples and denounced by nations.
But it will go well with those who convict the guilty,
and rich blessing will come on them.
Proverbs 24:23-25
