Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx --- November 11

Dear Lord, on this Veteran's Day, let us pause to remember those who have given their lives for our country or returned home ill or wounded; because of their sacrifices we have blessings to count. ... We have been warned that "if America ceases to be good, she will cease to be great."* ... Oh Lord, help us as a nation not to depart from You. Let us pray daily for our leaders, for we are all truly dependent upon Your mercy and Your guidance.

In the name of Jesus we pray.
