Today is the National Day of Prayer in the United States of America. The theme is “Lord, Hear Our Cry,” and the verse that highlights the theme is 1 Kings 8:28: “Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day.”
Mentoring Moments has a worldwide readership which means some of readers are not in the USA. Pray for your nation today too.
Honorary chairman Jack Graham will be praying the following at noon today. Join Pastor Graham and other believers today as we lift up our nation and her people to the throne of God.
We come to You in the Name that is above every name–Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Our hearts cry out to You.
Knowing that You are a prayer-answering, faithful God–the One we trust in times like these–we ask that You renew our spirits, revive our churches, and heal our land.
We repent of our sins and ask for Your grace and power to save us. Hear our cry, oh God, and pour out Your Spirit upon us that we may walk in obedience to Your Word.
We are desperate for Your tender mercies. We are broken and humbled before You.
Forgive us, and in the power of Your great love, lift us up to live in Your righteousness.
We pray for our beloved nation. May we repent and return to You and be a light to the nations. And we pray for our leaders and ask that You give them wisdom and faith to follow You.
Preserve and protect us, for You are our refuge and only hope.
Deliver us from all fears except to fear You, and may we courageously stand in the Truth that sets us free.
We pray with expectant faith and grateful hearts.
In Jesus’ name, our Savior.
— 2015 National Prayer by Dr. Jack Graham
