40 DAYS OF PRAYER & FASTING | UNTIL NOVEMBER 8, 2016
This prayer guide will help to focus our prayers as we begin 40 days of prayer and fasting for America. Use this guide in your prayer times this week.
Jesus is the only answer to our nation’s problems. A Great Awakening is the only answer to a nation that has gone away from its biblical roots. No politician has the answers for our nation, but we must pray for godly leadership in every position of authority. We must cry out for another Jesus Movement to sweep across out nation and people turn to the Lord. The Word says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12).
Personal and corporate repentance
Before we begin in intercession, it’s good to inspect our own hearts and come clean before the Lord. Take time to confess and repent to God of any sins in your life. Then, from a national perspective, repent for rejecting God as a nation, and for the removal of God in our education systems and government.
“Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; according to the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.” Ps. 51:1-3 (NKJ)
Intercession topic for this week: Life and Justice Issues
“Turn us back to You, O LORD, and we will be restored; renew our days as of old.” Lamentations 5:21 (NKJ)
“Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.” James 4:17 (NKJ)
LIFE prayer: “Jesus. I plead Your blood over my sins, and the sins of my nation. God, end abortion and send revival to America”. (Bound4LIFE.com)
