With the permission from Pastor Dave at Christian Church in the Wildwood, I would like to add this prayer to our site. For the month of July our congregation is participating on focusing on Prayer....America's Hope. We will be praying for our nation! In the comfort of our own home, every Wednesday evening from 7-8 we will pray as a family for 5-10 minutes or the full hour. Please involve your whole family and if this time or day isn't convenient, pick time that will fit.
The following is copied from our church's weekly insert:
Prayer has been a vital force in the growth and development of the U.S. George Washington was first to recognize our dependence upon God when he said, "It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible." It is vital that Christians let their voice be heard both by God and our country's leaders.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says: "If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
Use this list to guide and direct your prayer time. As you intercede for each leader, pray for godly wisdom and guidance, strength and divine protection. Let us join our hearts and cry out for the healing of our County.

Father in Heaven, We lift our eyes toward Your Throne, where You reign in righteousness. Your Word assures us that when your people cry out in sincerity and humility, You will never turn a deaf ear to us. We call upon You now, seeking Your forgiveness and favor. Drop knees to the floor and raise eyes to the sky, for we know where our help comes from. Unite these States again in devotion to You. Do not give us over to our sins. Give us, instead, over to passionate prayer that moves Your heart. "May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You." In the Name of our Lord and Savior, Amen. (Beth Moore - 2009).
