So, each day I will be focusing on some specific area where our country needs prayer and I will be praying about that - I would love to have you join me!
If there is going to be change around us and we want that change to happen then the best place to start is with ourselves. So that is my prayer today - a prayer of repentance, of asking God "See if there be any wicked way in me" and looking for His leading and direction as I move forward from here. Here are some verses that remind me to repent:
"The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent," Acts 17:30
"The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. " 2 Peter 3:9
"Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you." James 4:8-10
