21 Days of Prayer for the United States

I will set this post to run as #2 on my list until November 7.

These are troubling days in the grand old U.S. of A.

These battles cannot be fought with politics, military, or medical doctors alone.  We need God's help. We need God's help again.

Because, as the second President of the United States understood, "the safety and prosperity of nations ultimately and essentially depend on the protection and blessing of Almighty God." 

Why not focus on praying for America the twenty-one days prior to the Presidential election?    The prayers are based on the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6, the armor of God in Ephesians 6, and Daniel’s prayers in Daniel 9-10.

If you have not already, you can read my article Fervent, Righteous Praying for America here.

Use the following prayer guide from October 19 - November 8, 2016.

                                (Matthew 6:9)
