Pray, in his mercy, that the Lord even now intervene to deliver us from evil and renew a right spirit within us.
Pray protection over the unborn.

diversions of the enemy.
Pray that the eyes and ears of the lost be opened, so that they may know and acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord, and be saved.
Pray for ‘nominal’ Christians in this nation to encounter Christ and be awakened fully to truth.
Pray that the foundations of our society be renewed and reaffirmed, and that we recover the values of truth, honesty, justice, righteousness, purity, discipline, courage in the face of adversity, and steadfastness.
Pray that the Church be purified and become once again a moral compass and beacon to the nation, fearlessly proclaiming the Gospel and steadfastly upholding truth.
Pray that spirits of chaos and confusion holding the nation be bound, and that the Lord bring clarity and unity of purpose to our fatally divided land.
Pray that those who wish to suppress truth for their own ends be supernaturally stopped, and that the full truth be revealed.
Pray for the protection of the nation from acts of terrorism, and from all those plotting covertly to undermine and subvert us.
