Prayer Pledge: 40 Days of Prayer for the USA

With the upcoming presidential election here in the United states, author Max Lucado issued a call to pray in this recent web blog…

In the gym, the church parking lot, Starbucks—everywhere I go, I hear the same question: “What can I do about the condition of our country?” Declining moral standards. Economic turmoil. Seemingly endless bickering and posturing of our leaders. More than ever before, citizens are concerned about the future of our nation. The presidential election is drawing near and we wonder, “What can I do?”

Here is the answer: pray. During times of national concern, our first and foremost task is prayer.

“The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know.  Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live.”

—1 Timothy 2:1-3 MSG

I’m inviting you to join me in 40 days of prayer for the USA. Beginning September 28 and ending on election day, November 6, will you offer this request to God?

Dear Heavenly Father,

You have given us this promise: ”…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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

—2 Chronicles 7:14

So, we pray to you. We turn from evil and look to you, our God. Please:

Unite us

Strengthen us

Appoint and anoint our next president

In the name of Christ we pray, Amen.

Like you, I am a concerned citizen. Like you, I believe in God’s power to heal our nation. But we must pray.

“You people who remind the Lord of your needs in prayer must never be quiet.”

—Isaiah. 62:6

Please commit to this prayer initiative. Just sign up and begin praying. Our God is a God who answers prayer.

Prayerfully,
Max Lucado

Currently over 18,500 have signed the pledge to pray for our nation. Will you?

    Amen! I stand on 2 Chronicles 7:14; in fact, that is what I have in my comments area whenever someone leaves a comment, they see it. God bless you dear sister! Awesome post indeed!

      I found this thankx to a friend and was spreading the word. Thank you for doing the same! It’s about time we quit complaining and started doing a little praying and humbling ourselves before our Maker. We need this election to come according to His will and not of our own. Thank you for committing sister!

    Sometimes we are so stuck in the muck of life we forget the power of time resting on knee caps. I took the pledge…

      We must never underestimate the humbling power of getting on our knees even for the simplest of things. Thank you!
