DAY 17 | Our Country
Today as we pray, we acknowledge that our country is wounded, divided, and struggling. We ask the Spirit of God to lead us to repentance for our pride and judgement against one another. We ask Him to lead us to love our neighbor, pray for those we don’t agree with, and heal our land according to His will for our nation.
Isaiah 56:7 (NIV) – These I will bring to my holy mountain and give the joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.
Our Daily Crafted Prayer
Lord Jesus, we come to you as the only answer for us all.
We ask for your mercy and compassion to surround Gary and Barbara now.
Guide them and direct them to hear you clearly and draw near to you.
We ask for you to give them patient understanding as they seek you.
Help them to listen deeply.
Surround them with your ever present love and grace.
Strengthen and cover Gary to come away for a time of rest
with you to guide and direct him.
Heal and restore, bring your peace and wholeness.
We pray for our church that we will learn the
many things you desire to teach us.
Open our ears to listen and recognize your voice in new ways.
Open our hearts to be filled with your mercy and compassion for others.
Open our eyes to see where you are moving within us
and within our community.
Let us join in with you to pray:
Your kingdom come
Your will be done here in Cambria,
Here in your church, and
Here in our hearts.
Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, have Mercy.
