Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx --- April 17

Dear Lord, remind us that this nation was once great because it was established on Your Judeo-Christian legacy and by people who held Your Word to be sacred and Your sovereignty to be supreme. ... Help us not to be too quick to destroy our foundations in our haste to build a new global order -- an order where diversity is revered and no unifying moral guidelines are offered. ... Forgive us for seeking the quick fix, the surface-surgery, when we need to rebuild our moral base and set limits on our sexual excesses. We need once more to be accountable and responsible for our individual actions and honest in all of our dealings, showing concern for those in need. ... Oh Lord, our nation's leaders and citizens alike must set moral examples for all young people, worldwide. If we won't do it, will You be forced to bring our nation to its knees? ... Forgive us for deserting Your high calling and sabotaging Your plan.

In Jesus' name I pray.
