Presidents Washington and Lincoln are two of our nation's most beloved and respected presidents. Both knew the agony of leading in times of war, both struggled to gain popular support for the vision they had for our nation, and both were men of great and Godly faith, known to rely on prayer to seek guidance and help from God as they served America. President Bush has also acknowledged his dependence on prayer, and his need for us to be prayerfully supporting him as he performs his duties on behalf of our nation.
Here's a simple prayer you can say today to support America:
Our Father and Our God, we praise You for Your goodness to our nation, giving us blessings far beyond what we deserve. Yet we know all is not right with America. Convict us of sin. Help us to turn to You in repentance and faith. Set our feet on the path of Your righteousness and peace. We pray today for our nation's leaders. Give them the wisdom to know what is right, and the courage to do it. You have said, "Blessed is the nation whose God is Lord". May this be a new era for America, as we humble ourselves and acknowledge You alone as our Savior and Lord. This we pray in Your holy name, Amen.
