National Day of Prayer in Bartlesville Was a Solemn Assembly with a Spirit of Humility

Pastors from all over the city led prayers over various topics from Marriage to Business, to Media and more. Together we prayed out loud a prayer of repentance – chilling in it’s scope. While I have attended the day of prayer events in the past and even called people to join in — this time there was something different in the air. I don’t know if people realize how much trouble we are in as a nation, but they seemed to. There was a spirit of humility in the air, a sense of urgency to get it right, a calling that we must beseech the Lord for His grace and mercy in this time. We have failed to do the things necessary to protect this nation in this hour. We do not know if there is time to turn things around, but we do know the solutions are beyond our abilities. We will need the intervention of the Lord God Almighty every step of the way.

National Day of Prayer on May 2nd 2013

Father, we come to You to pray for our nation, the United States of America.

How You have blessed us through the years, Lord! We rightly sing, “America, America, God shed His grace on thee.” Yet we see trouble in our culture today. We see the breakdown of the family, crippling addictions, and random acts of horrific violence.

Lord, we need Your help in America. In recent days, we have done our best to remove Your Word and Your counsel from our courtrooms, classrooms and culture. It seems, as President Lincoln once said, that we have “forgotten God.” But Lord, You have not forgotten us! You can bless and help and revive our country again.
