Target: Righteous Promotion
Proverbs 24:24-25 He who says to the wicked, “You are righteous,” him the people will curse; nations will abhor him.  But those who rebuke the wicked will delight, and a good blessing will come upon them.

Founding Father Quote: “A share in the sovereignty of the state, which is exercised by the citizens at large, in voting at elections is one of the most important rights of the subject, and in a republic ought to stand foremost in the estimation of the law.” –Alexander Hamilton

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for the awesome privilege of participating in the governance of this great nation.  Forgive us for taking for granted our freedom to vote, thus neglecting our Christian duty to influence America in the direction of righteousness.  Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.  May the righteous be bold and take a stand, steering this country in a direction of Light, away from the darkness.  May America once again experience the blessings of Almighty God as we turn from our sinful ways.  We ask you, Lord, to lead us by Your truth towards our divine destiny as responsible, righteous citizens of the United States of America.

Day 23 of 40 Days of Prayer for America

Target: Voting in Local Elections

Proverbs 20:7 The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him.

Founding Father Quote: “Now more than ever the people are responsible for the character of their Congress.  If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption.  If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature. . . . If the next centennial does not find us a great nation . . . it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.”  -James Garfield

Prayer: Lord, we must consider the future of America, the future of our children and grandchildren.  When the righteous man is silent or behaves like the wicked, the next generation can only live in destruction and disgrace.  We know that nothing is impossible with You, oh Lord, and we ask that You would forgive us and help us take our country back, to restore it to the great nation it once was.  May our children come to know the America that our grandparents enjoyed.  As we think of our pending national elections, may we not forget that the local elections are also of great importance to the strength of our country.  What we build on the local level affects our cities, our states and indeed our nation.  At this point in our history, we are no longer a truly united body of states.  May Your love once again unite us.  The victory alone is Yours, and we humbly ask that You go before us to pave the way for a bright future for those we love most, our precious children.  We ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
