National Day of Prayer Today

Join us today in lifting up our nation in prayer, and specifically ask God to be merciful to us. The theme of this year's National Day of Prayer is "America, Honor God."

The following prayer has been composed for the day by Dr. Henry Blackaby, who is the Honorary Chariman of the National Day of Prayer:

Oh Heavenly Father, You have made Yourself known to us as a nation by Your mighty works throughout our history. From the beginning, You have been with us through many wars and conflicts; Your right arm has saved us. We have been amazingly and graciously blessed.

Today, we confess our sin of not responding to Your right to rule in our lives and our nation. Too often we have despised and rejected Your will while imposing our own, and we are now facing the consequences of our disobedience. Draw us back to Yourself, that we may return to Your ways once again. Without You we can do nothing. You have promised that if we honor You, You will once again honor this great nation.

That is our fervent prayer. For Your honor and glory we pray, Amen.
