Wednesday, Oct. 21st: Pray for Your Neighbors and Neighborhood Galatians 5:22
Good morning Father, I want to start the day once again, thanking You for Your faithfulness. Today's prayer is for the US State of Rhode Island, one of the smallest but most expensive states.
Father, in this state we put forth prayers for leadership guidance and directions. We pray for the congressional, senate and federal elected officials. This state is the first state that led away from British colonialism and the fourth to ratify the constitution. Although the smallest state, it has shown the greatest effort, in the past, to change course. Father, lead this state away from the direction they have come and lead us, as one of the first states did, throwing off the cloak of injustice and tyranny.
We pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit, for wisdom and a desire for them to return to their first love, the love of God. Put us on a course going forward, not of disunity and disloyalty but a place of honoring one another and respecting each others rights.
Father, we pray for church leaders to throw off the traditional church mindset and replace it with a radical heart for Jesus. Let the church lead us into a time of worship and understanding. Let the church restart the altar and make the family the center of our time together with You.
We pray that we stand in unison, to bring forth a nation that can guide others into an understanding of what true freedom can be. We pray that we don't throw off the cloak of injustice and tyranny without replacing it with the cloak of righteousness and peace.
Let the smallest state in the Union become the one with biggest heart for the things of God. I pray for the last to be first and the first to be last. Grant us one more opportunity in this day to seek your face.. in Jesus name amen
