Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx --- January 6

Dear Lord, as we begin to live out this New Millennial Year ahead, let us not forget to pray for our nation. More and more we see emphasis being placed on the secular, on the material, and we realize that we are being forced as a nation, and as individuals, to live beyond our means. Let us stop and ask ourselves, "In whom do we believe, and what do we believe?" Help us to ponder these words: "When a man ceases to believe in God, he does not believe in nothing, he believes in anything!" ... We pray that those in leadership positions will lead this country back to our Christian roots, lest they make a god of diversity, and we as a nation desert You, and You desert us! ... Remind us that freedom has its boundaries, and that these boundaries are determined by whatever we as a nation commit ourselves to! Oh Lord, let us pray each day that we and our leaders will commit ourselves to You.

In Jesus' name we pray.
