“The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry; the face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth. The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” (Ps. 34:15-18).
Here are some powerful prayers to focus on today as we seek the face of the Father for the sake of our nation:
We come to you Lord, on behalf of our nation, not as those who deserve anything, but as those who are crushed in spirit. Your Word promises us Your attention Lord, so we come with confidence to ask you to save us. Raise up for us a leader who will look to you as the source of all power and wisdom.

“O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads” (Ps. 83:1-2). Lord, as our nation continues to slide away from your standards of righteousness, it is apparent that many have set themselves up as your enemies. So we ask you to step into our nation for your own sake Lord. Re-establish right standards in our culture! Please do this in the political process, our judiciary, media, and especially in our homes!

Praise God that birth and conception are miraculous and a special gift from God. Thank him for planning all your days before you were even born (Ps. 139:16). Confess any dissatisfaction over the gifts and abilities God has given you. Commit yourself to God daily and, like Paul, be content in whatever situation he has placed you (Phil. 4:11). Ask God to bring personal peace as a member of your family.
Pray that children in your family circle and among your friends may be blessed with godly parents who are good examples and who discipline them in love (Prov. 22:6).
