Today is National Prayer Day, so let us pray for our Nation:                  
                                                                               
From 2 Chronicles 7:14 . . . Father, You said You would hear                  
us from heaven and would heal the land if we would humble                      
ourselves and seek Your face, and if we would repent of our                    
evil ways.                                                                     
                                                                               
Father, our land needs healing.  So we seek Your face today,                  
we humble ourselves and pray, we do repent of our sins and                     
ask for forgiveness.                                                           
                                                                               
Father, please heal the land.  Heal whatever is causing such                  
violence in our schools and restore peace to our children.

Heal our moral decadence and restore righteousness.  Heal the                  
racial prejudice and bigotry that still divides us and restore                 
love.  Heal the hurts of the many that are victims of the social               
ills of our land and restore hope.  Heal our cynicism and                      
restore our faith.  Heal our families that have been traumatized               
by breakup and domestic violence and restore strength and                      
soundness to our homes.  Heal our backslidings from the                        
principles of Your word and restore our moral and spiritual                    
integrity.  We also pray that You will minister strength and                   
comfort to people in the Great Plains who have suffered loss                   
because of the tornadoes.  We ask these things for Your glory.                 
Amen
