Prayer for our Nation Taken from Prayers That Prevail For America. by Richards & Hildebrand

KEY THOUGHT "Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens." Daniel Webster.

KEY SCRIPTURE "He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God." II Sam. 23:3b.

PRAYER "Lord God, Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, have mercy upon our country. Guide our leaders to know you, to seek your wisdom and to receive salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. I pray for the senators and representatives who serve us in the U. S. Capitol. I ask your blessing on each one and their families. Keep them from evil and help them see clearly.

May all the members of the U.S. Congress - both senators and representatives - follow after truth at all times. Remind each one, that if a ruler hearkens unto lies, all his servants become wicked. The fear of man always brings a snare, Lord, but everyone who puts his trust in you, will be safe. Reveal this to the members of the U.S. Congress. Thank you for the practical wisdom presented in your Word.

THANK YOU for the freedom we enjoy as citizens of the United States of America. Help us never to use our freedom as a cloak of maliciousness, but only as your servants. Where there is bitter envying and strife, we know that the enemy of our souls is doing his work. I ask that you would sow the fruit of righteousness, without hypocrisy, in the hearts and lives of the members of the U.S. Congress.

THANK YOU for our representatives in govern- ment. Help them not only to represent us but also to represent you. (Edited to fit into this space)
