Humble and Pray

Today is the National Day of Prayer and it was so amazing to listen to Focus on the Family the last two days and hear people across the nation pray with such passion! This morning my class spent extra time praying and writing out a prayer list in our journal. The ideas and prayer concerns they came up with were touching....(two of them being cloning and global warming....things I DO NOT teach in fourth grade ; ) It was a sweet time listening to these 9-10 year olds pray and seek God....the faith of young children!!!!

Here is a prayer for our President that I found on Susan's blog: What a responsibility we have to pray for this man that is leading our country. No matter what our political views are.....God is not on vacation, God has not turned His back on His people just because we have a President that we may not agree with....GOD is powerful and still in control and can even change hearts....wow..there's a thought...change the heart of our leader...hmmmm!

Prayer For Our President
Most High God, Blessed and Wonderful Savior, Ever-present Holy Spirit, Precious Lord, our Governor, Whose glory is in all the world, We commend this nation to your compassionate and merciful care As we are guided by you providence, may we dwell secure in your peace. Grant to the President of the United States, your wisdom and strength to know and to do your will. Fill the President with the love of truth and righteousness. Make him ever mindful of his call to serve this people in your fear. In the name of the Wonderful Father, Most Beloved And Precious Son, and Ever-present Holy Spirit upon whom we can rely. In Jesus name, Amen.

If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chron. 7:14
