Tomorrow is the National Day of Prayer. This day is set aside to remind us to pray for our country, our elected leaders, our armed forces, our schools, our churches and all we hold dear. Check out the above website for more information or to find an event near you. This is an opportunity to join with other Christians to petition our Father in heaven.
As you pray for our country, perhaps some of these verses from God’s Word will be helpful…

Give ear, O God, and hear; open Your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears Your Name. We do not make requests of You because we are righteous, but because of Your great mercy.

we long for You.

our salvation in time of distress. Isaiah 33:2 (NIV)
