National Day of Prayer – May 3rd
We so need to PRAY as a NATION for OUR NATION, for our leadership, for our appointed and soon to be elected officials and the current ones as well as so many current situations in our country. We need to humble ourselves before the Lord, from the top of our nation to each individual believer, we need to rise up and be responsible to praying for God's authority over our authorities and laws.
There are so many great links for today. I really love the

2012 PRAYER FOR OUR NATION by Dr. David Jeremiah (download available) from National Day of Prayer 61st Annual Observance
Every good gift and perfect gift comes from You. You are a faithful God and Your mercy endures forever.
You have promised to bless the nation that trusts in You. Our currency proclaims “In God We Trust,” but in our culture we are far from You.
In the words of the prophet Daniel, “We have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments.”
We come before You once more, seeking Your forgiveness and mercy. You, O God, are our only hope… Hear our prayer and, for Your honor’s sake, shine Your face upon this nation.
Give our leaders the desire to seek Your wisdom and the courage to follow Your guidance… and watch over the men and women of our armed forces as they sacrifice for the cause of freedom.
We give You thanks for all You have done for us, and we earnestly pray that You will help us become, once again, a nation whose God is the Lord.
In the name of Your Son, and our Savior, we pray this prayer.
