Day 4 (40 Days of Prayer)

October 1, 2012  Day 4:
Heavenly Father we give You praise, glory and honor this day as we acknowledge You,

Creator of this universe, the only living God, and Your Son Jesus Christ and His sacrifice
on the cross for the sins of the world. Father we come to You in repentance for the
condition of our nation because we have turned
away from You.
We repent of the six things that You hate according to Proverbs 6: 1619, as we are
guilty of all. A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that
manufactures wicked thoughts and plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false
witness, and the one that is an abomination to You: he who sows discord among the
brethren. Father we ask for Your forgiveness as we forgive each other.
Father, our eyes are open to the descent of America and we want to put this nation back
on track with You but we cannot do it without Your help. We want Your Name to be
glorified again across this land. We need Your help to elect a new administration that
will acknowledge and honor You and Israel. Father, without You we can do nothing. We
pray for wisdom, strength and courage.
Father, renew our strength, give us new hope and make us “one nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Pray for our leaders
We ask that You turn their hearts towards You, Lord. We ask that You soften their
hearts, Lord, to recognize and receive truth. Lord, we ask that you grant them the
understanding and knowledge that come from the fear of You. We ask that you grant
them wisdom and discernment, Lord, and that you make them bold to do what is right in
Your sight. Lord, we ask that you direct their hearts to do Your will. Amen.
