Dear Father, help the human race and its treatment of all living creatures. I know you watch even the little sparrow and I ask that you open the hearts of all men in how we treat our animals. Animal abuse is rampant upon this planet and we need your intervention. Help the creatures that have no voice. In Your Son's precious and holy name. Amen.

2013 National Day of Prayer

     Tomorrow May 2, 2013 is the United State's national Day of Prayer. The theme this year is "Pray for America". To further highlight the theme, the National Day of Prayer committee has chosen Matthew 12:21 as the Scripture for this year: “In... His name the nations will put their hope.” 
     Pastor Greg Laurie, the 2013 Honorary Chairman, has written a special prayer to be simultaneously read throughout the nation at noon (EDT) which will be 8:00 a.m. Alaska time. This recitation will create a huge wave of prayer, flowing from one coast to the other. Here is the link to the prayer:
Here's the prayer in case you don't have the computer capabilitiy to link to the addy I posted a minute ago.                                                                                            


 Father, we come to You to pray for our nation, the United States of America.

How You have blessed us through the years, Lord! We rightly sing, “America, America, God shed His grace on thee.” Yet w...e see trouble in our culture today. We see the breakdown of the family, crippling addictions, and random acts of horrific violence.

Lord, we need Your help in America. In recent days, we have done our best to remove Your Word and Your counsel from our courtrooms, classrooms and culture. It seems, as President Lincoln once said, that we have “forgotten God.” But Lord, You have not forgotten us! You can bless and help and revive our country again.

Scripture tells us that “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs14:34). Lord, in Your mercy, we ask that You would exalt our country again. We have had a number of great awakenings in America. We have experienced times of refreshing, and revivals that changed not only the spiritual but also the moral landscape. As the psalmist said, “Will You not revive us again, so that Your people may rejoice in You?” (Psalm 85:6)

That is our prayer for America today, Lord. Send a mighty spiritual awakening that will turn the hearts of men and women, boys and girls back to you. You have told us if we will humble ourselves and pray, and seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways, that You will forgive our sins and heal our land. (2 Chronicles7:14)

Forgive us today, Lord, and heal this troubled land that we love so much.

We ask all of this in the name of Jesus Christ.
