Friday, Oct. 23rd: Pray for the Homeless Deuteronomy 10:18;24:19-21
Good morning Father, we pray for South Dakota today. It is home to the Blacklands and Mount Rushmore, the place where images of four former US presidents are carved into the face of the mountain. This place is a place of broken promises.
We pray today and repent for the past promise we have broken to others and to You. Father, forgive us for that which we promise and do not keep. We forget as a nation we had a past not only of civil war but as a pioneering nation we also fought against the native tribes that once possessed the land. These fights led to treaties or covenants that we as a nation did not keep. So we repent for our forefathers and ask today that You break the curse of iniquity that runs through our historical veins.
We pray for the leaders of this state; that the morals of those who lead would correspond to the word of God and His covenant written as a reminder of the love He has for us. From the mountains to the prairie of this state, God bless America our home sweet home.
Let the churches arise with an altar of sacrifice to worship not idols carved in mountains but the God who was and who is and is to come. Father, we pray for the church and its position in leading a people back into true worship. Holy Spirit, guide the heart of the church back to the true covenant established by God. Again we speak the covenant as a reminder both to You and to ourselves that: 2 Chronicles 7:14 "If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." Oh heal this sick land Father, bring us back into a covenant relationship established at Calvary Cross. The covenant sealed by the blood of Jesus that forgave us of all sin and healed our broken lives.
Today we again pray for the return America to a right relationship with You and Father, we know You are working on our behalf because of the blood of Your Son. Thank you ahead of time for what you will do and truly we are a blessed people in the name of Jesus... amen.
