Today is the National Day of Prayer! Let's pray for the United States! We need God's grace and mercy on our land, beginning in our own hearts.
"if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." ~2 Chronicles 7:14
We are to pray for our leaders nationally and locally!
"I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness." ~1 Timothy 2:1-2

Let's all pray! If you are able to go to a National Day of Prayer event near you, go! I'm attending one in our state in just a couple hours.
My whole family cannot attend this year together, but I have wonderful memories of attending with strollers and our children in tow as we all attended the National Day of Prayer so our children would know how important it is to pray for our country (we were interviewed two years in a row by the local media and I was scared to death when the microphone was suddenly thrust in front of my face. I gained courage from the courage of Anne Graham Lotz who I had just seen who had been so bold for Christ! If it happens to you, God will give you the words and the courage!).
Let's stand together and pray all over America for God to heal our land and for us individually to each turn from our wicked ways, and to walk in Christ's ways. I'm in! Are you?
Walk by Faith,
