The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective”. James 5:16b. NIV. This is a repeat on prayer. Our country has always prayed for unity and still praying today.
“Give us, we pray, the power to discern clearly right from wrong and allow all our works and actions to be governed thereby and by the laws of this land. Especially we pray that our concern shall be for all the people, regardless of station, race, or calling. May cooperation be permitted and be the mutual aim of those who, under the concept of our Constitution, hold to differing political beliefs so that all may work for the good of our beloved country and for Thy glory”. (1)
We are still praying the same: discernment, race issues, politics and unity. Our country is in need of a turn to God, as we live in a me, me and me world. No one has respect for others or their families, homes and businesses.

Thursdays are my “pray for the country” day. One general item I focus on is our relationships. These are relationships in this country and relationships with other countries. Also, all Christians and their safety and Christians willing to stand up for the truth through tout the world.
When was the last time you prayed for someone besides yourself?
Pray for your country today?
