National Day of Prayer-May 3rd 2012
One nation under God

Why Pray?
"Prayer brings us into the presence of Almighty God. In our seasons of trial, in our times of prosperity, when we don't know where to turn, He is our answer. Scripture tells us, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord" (Psalm 33:12) and He is faithful to bless those who turn to him."

How to P.R.A.Y.
"Thank God for what He has already accomplished through Jesus."

"Confess your sins and shortcomings. Repent personally and on behalf of our nation. The Lord is quick to forgive when we come to him."

"Ask God to reveal truth, turn our hearts back to him, and bring healing."

"Yield to the Lord and recognize He has heard our prayers and will answer according to His will. He is waiting to provide guidance and direction!"

Dr. David Jeremiah - NDP Honorary Chairman

Heavenly Father,
Every good gift and perfect gift comes from You.
You are a faithful God and Your mercy endures

You have promised to bless the nation that trusts
in You. Our currency proclaims "In God We
Trust," but in our culture we are far from You.

In the words of the prophet Daniel, "We have
sinned and committed iniquity, we have done
wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from
Your precepts and Your judgements."

We come before You once more, seeking Your
forgiveness and mercy. You, O God, are our only
hope... Hear our prayer and, for Your honor's
sake, shine Your face upon this nation.

Give our leaders the desire to seek your wisdom
and the courage to follow your guidance... and
watch over the men and women of our armed
forces as they sacrifice for the cause of freedom.

We give You thanks for all You have done for us,
and we earnestly pray that You will help us
become, once again, a nation whose God is the

In the name of Your son, and our Savior, we
pray this prayer.
