Prayer for Our Nation: October 6, 2012

30 Days until Election Day

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. -Romans 8:26

Thank You, Lord for the gift of Your spirit who continually helps us overcome our weaknesses. We confess that all things are possible through You and nothing is possible without You! Open our hearts and intercede with the Father that we may humble ourselves in Your presence. We thank You for Your forgiveness. Strengthen us to live with purpose and empower us to serve You.

  2. Thanks for this, Chrissy. I hope you don’t mind me stealing it and spreading the prayer around.

      I didn’t write it. I bought a booklet that was designed specifically for this purpose. I’m just typing the prayers in to post and email around. Getting good feedback from here and my bloggy listers, so lots of incentive to keep it up to the end. I also figure when I type, proofread and proofread again, I’m praying the same prayer three times. :o) So yes, please, all y’all SPREAD IT AROUND.

    Thanks for the reminder. “…with groanings which cannot be uttered.” So well said.

    And, Amen!

      Yeah. I feel like groaning when I’m praying for our nation, esp about national security and abortion. The issues are so big and the dangers and evil so deep … words fail.
