National Day of Prayer - May 7, 2015
Dr. Jack Graham will lead the nation in prayer as the 2015 Honorary Chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force.
Please visit the Official National Day of Prayer Web Site.
"As a sign of unity, we are asking people to pray the Prayer for the Nation at noon on May 7, wherever they are. Some will be at a public prayer observance at that time, while others will be sitting in front of their desks at work. Regardless of his or her location, it is important that His people, who are called by His name, seek Him in unity. If people participate in this form of corporate prayer, it will be like a wave of prayer flowing across our country. "
We are suggesting that those involved with nursing home ministry make arrangements to participate in The National Day of Prayer at the facility where they make they regular visits but at the time indicated. It will be a blessing to the residents, staff, and visitors. You can make copies of this prayer to hand out in Microsoft Word Format by clicking here.
We come to You in the Name that is above every name—Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Our hearts cry out to You.
Knowing that You are a prayer-answering, faithful God—the One we trust in times like these—we ask that You renew our spirits, revive our churches, and heal our land.
We repent of our sins and ask for Your grace and power to save us. Hear our cry, oh God, and pour out Your Spirit upon us that we may walk in obedience to Your Word.
We are desperate for Your tender mercies. We are broken and humbled before You.
Forgive us, and in the power of Your great love, lift us up to live in Your righteousness.
We pray for our beloved nation. May we repent and return to You and be a light to the nations. And we pray for our leaders and ask that You give them wisdom and faith to follow You.
Preserve and protect us, for You are our refuge and only hope.
Deliver us from all fears except to fear You, and may we courageously stand in the Truth that sets us free.
We pray with expectant faith and grateful hearts.
In Jesus’ name, our Savior. Amen.
