Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx --- October 26

Dear Lord, how do we see ourselves -- as Your lost sheep needing Your guidance, or as an independent generation of citizens and leaders who see no need to consider Your plans for our nation? ... Is it arrogance, or lack of wisdom, that energizes those who think they have "outgrown" You? Is their philosophy driving them to lead our nation to a "point of no return?" ... You warned us in Your Word that there would come a time when many people would be deceived, even some of Your followers.* ... Open our eyes, both as citizens and as Christians, to see that along with our right to be both, we also have a responsibility to be informed and conscientious voters. ... In the days ahead, help us to seek the guidance of Your Holy Spirit in order to discover Your will and direction for our nation, lest we fail You and our children!

In Jesus' holy name we pray.


     * (See Matt. 24:21-24)
