Monday, Oct. 18th: Pray for Children Psalm 127:3-4
Good morning Father, today we petition on behalf of our nation and the state of Oklahoma. Oklahoma is the neighbor of our great state of Texas and much of what happens there, influences what happens here. The rivalry between Texas and Oklahoma has led to great revivals in the past. The peer pressure of friendship and closeness causes both states to fight for relationship.
Oklahoma is know for being a true cowboy culture. This energy rich state leads in so many ventures, that today we begin praying for leadership, in the unity of this great nation. Father, place within the cities of this state another chance for revival.
This is true native land and so many of the native Americans occupy this territory. Father, give this nation a desire not for the wealth of the world but let it be for the true riches that do not rust or rot away.
We pray for the state leaders, the governor, mayors, judges and we cannot forget the school boards that influence the next generation. We ask that there be a true repentance and a longing for the family structure to be built again on the structure you have designed, the word of God. I pray we never forget the past advancement and that we don't become complacent in our future hopes. Remove from the hearts of your people the motivation that good enough replaces obedience to the Father.
I sincerely cry out for an altar to be built in this state that would once again bring attention to the love we have for You. Let the first love that we once had be the guidance necessary to help lead America back to the heart of worship. Let the sweet smelling aroma of true worship capture Your attention that you may once again heal our land. Give us peace, in the midst of our turmoil, to know how to return to the place where we can lift up Your name. Great is thy faithfulness, oh God our Father. Father we pray on this Lords day in the name of Jesus... amen
