The Statue Of Liberty

For citizens to rise up in gratitude to God for the blessing of living in a democracy and having the majority elect those who will lead us in the coming years.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.
—Colossians 3:16

O majestic God, Your love for all persons and peoples has been shown from the beginning of time. You poured out blessings on Your people Israel, time and again, leading them down paths of repentance and restoration. Thank You, Lord, for Your legacy of deliverance.

Now, God, we express our everlasting gratitude to You as we reflect on the blessings of living in this great nation where we can voice our opinion and vote for the elected officials of our choosing. May the truth of Scripture infuse us with knowledge so we may correct and exhort each other to obedience and service. We sing to You, Lord, as an expression of our joy from our hearts for being uniquely American and uniquely Christian. We worship You, O God, in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, amen.

This is the latest in the series of prayers led by the Presidential Prayer Team for the new President and for our nation. If you are interested in receiving the email with each day's prayer assignment you can click here and sign up.
