Prayer Focus: Our Nation

Politics aside, all levels of our government need our support and if the church doesn’t lift our leadership up in prayer who will? Wisdom, discernment, courage and spiritual renewal for the leaders of our great country is the call to prayer for today!

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”
– 1 Timothy 2:1-2

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
– 2 Chronicles 7:14
