Today is National Day of Prayer – So pray!

2009 national day of prayer Along with millions of other Americans today, please pray for our nation. Specific areas of focus are: Government, Military, Media, Business, Education, Church, and Family.

Disappointingly, for the first time in eight years, no public ceremony will be held by our President, in contrast to former President Bush, who maintained a flawless record in holding a prayer service each year in office. 

Beth Moore, the Honorary Chairwoman at events this year, will pray the prayer below. Ricky Skaggs will sing “Somebody’s Praying.” A free MP3 download is available here. Former NFL MVP (and Alabama football star) Shaun Alexander will speak on Capitol Hill. 

Shaun twittered yesterday afternoon:

We can do this, right?

Here is the official prayer. Please take a moment and lift up our nation to the One who with real power.

2009 Prayer for Our Nation

by Beth Moore, Honorary Chairman

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.
Look over this fevered landscape and heal us, Lord.
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, and blur every dividing line.
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, Jesus Christ
