Monday, Oct. 19th: Pray for the Unborn Psalm 139:13-16
Good morning Father, today is the first day of a new work week. Father, we thank you for having Your angels look over us throughout the night. I pray we never forget Your protection.
Today, Father, we began to pray for the state of Oregon. Oregon is called the most diverse geographical state because of its water ways, deserts, mountains, volcanoes. This state is the heart of the timber industry and has always set trends.
Father, we pray for diversity as it relates to the heart of the Father; the ability to live with one another in desperate times. Although this state has a history of diversity, let it not be one that lifts up the name of the enemy. Touch the leaders in this area to again come to a place of having a true heart for the Father. We pray for salvation to reign in this area through its political leaders. Father, turn their hands away from selfish motives and back to the heart of the people.
Let their government stand among those who truly seek reform and restoration.
Father we pray that the church would arise and the enemies of our Lord would be scattered. The time is now, that this state which has a history of being a western culture, take its rightful place, to lead our country back into the mind of Christ. Father, let the diversity swing the churches back to a sincere desire to have a relationship with You.
Father, as a nation don't let it be just words spoken but let there be a true move, with action to light the heart of this nation toward the things of God. Father, I pray as we think of the leaders we never forget to pray for the people. Just as the children of Israel, we continue to ask for a king (political system) to rule over us but give us back the true King that will rule our hearts with a spirit of love. Let all the people praise you and let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for You shall judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Govern this nation and bring us back to our knees in this time of desperation. In Jesus name... amen.
