Day 12 (40 Days of Prayer)

Father, we thank You that as we genuinely repent, You extend Your mercy and pardon.
Please lead us to an understanding of how far we have strayed as a nation. We humbly
and sincerely ask for Your forgiveness and restoration.
We pray repentance for our entire nation including and most importantly from us, the
church. We pray for Your forgiveness for a nation that has lost its way without You. We
pray for Your merciful patience and protection over America as we seek to turn our
country back to You.
Father, cleanse us from all sin. Fill us with knowledge and wisdom that we may be
worthy of Your blessing and may be equipped to stay strong inour faith. Grant us
patience as we labor to make Your ways known in our nation and Your world.
Forgive us for our attempts to control and fix this broken world in our own power.
Forgive our nation, Lord. Show us a perfect balance of living gracefully and
championing truth. May our lives be evidence of Your goodness and righteousness.
Forgive us for failing to love as You love, for holding unforgiveness in my heart when
You died to forgive me. Thank You for accepting our genuine repentance, and for Your
mercy and pardon. 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.
