Friday, Oct. 16th Pray for Young Adults Proverbs 3:1-8
Good morning, we welcome You Holy Spirit into another day that we get the privilege to walk the earth and spread joy throughout. Father, today we pray for North Dakota, the land, the leaders and the church. Please hear the cry for this state in the middle of the United States.
Today we cry out for an area so rich with history that was well established before the United States was formed, it was formed by the American Indians and was quite advanced in it's heritage. We again repent for the things we did to displace a people and causing disunity in their nation. Father we look to this land full of history and we reflect on the generosity that you have toward us as a nation.
As we cry out this morning, touch the heart of the leaders to once again come to a place of full submission to the heart of the Father. Teach us that pioneering spirit that can bring a nation back to a place of it's origin but let it be one that brings unity and not disruption to this nation. Let us not center our attention on what we do not have but give us a thankful heart for what we do have.
Thankful for the rich history we have, thankful for the prosperity we have enjoyed as a nation, thankful for our families and loved ones that we get to be with each year. Thankful for the blood of Jesus that supplies the grace necessary to accomplish all that is in our hearts. Thankful that we will not depart from you all the days of our life and that a covenant that is established will keep the generations after us in a full knowledge of who You are. Thankful that as we prayed yesterday for Nancy and Keren that there are those who love us enough to stand for us when we cannot stand alone. Thankful for the love we have one for another and that we as a people continue to humble ourselves that as with Sodom You will not destroy us if there are but 5 righteous. Father thank you for the privilege we have to petition the heavens on behalf of our nation and that you hear our prayers. We again thank You for the soul cleansing blood of Your son. In Jesus name...amen
