Fast & Pray for America

DAY 3 PRAYERS

6pm Wednesday – 6pm Thursday

TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE


Remember, you have 24 hours to fast and pray. Don’t feel as though you must pray everything at one sitting. This is simply a guide to help us pray together in unison. If you are fasting, drink lot’s of water. When you get hungry, pray!

Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 3:3

Truth in the world seems to be an inconvenience and an annoyance. We experience so much falseness and lying that we have become accustomed to it. Advertisers consider falseness “harmless exaggeration”. Courts “reinterpret” truth to fit a narrative. Politicians campaign and lead falsely “for my constituents”. Media “journalists” read prepared scripts to appease their corporate interests. People lie to one another without conviction.

Truth yields peace and confidence; falseness yields chaos and fear. Our world is sick with lies and falseness. Today we will pray for truth in the world in a variety of areas.

The next 24 hours of prayer are dedicated to truth in the world. Use the suggested prayer items as a guide and add others as you are led by the Holy Spirit.

Governments

Will they who devise evil not go astray? But kindness and truth will be to those who devise good. Proverbs 14:22

God created a Divine Order in how He commanded mankind to function to sustain peace, prosperity and righteousness. Those in authority (governments, husbands, fathers, employers, pastors/preachers, leaders, etc.), are called to be servant leaders, and lead with honesty and integrity. Leaders have a high standard to meet, and God will hold all in authority accountable.

Business

A just balance and scales belong to the Lord; all the weights of the bag are His concern. Proverbs 16:11

A very significant problem in the world of business in America today is COVID-19 and over regulation. Small businesses are being pummeled and many thousands have gone bankrupt, putting millions of people out of work. The Fortune 500 companies have unfair advantages, but even many of them are suffering. Masks, social distancing and the number of people allowed to enter businesses more severely hurts small business. These prayers will revolve around truth in the business / government relationship.

Pray the listed items and others as the Holy Spirit leads:

  • Pray for businesses that are fighting legal battles because of being shut down unconstitutionally, to be victorious

Pray for us:

  • Ask the Lord if he has something for you to do in addition to praying in this area

Individuals

Buy truth, and do not sell it, get wisdom, instruction, and understanding. Proverbs 23:23

Churches, governments, media and businesses are collectives of individuals. As go the individuals so go the institutions. Where dishonesty and unethical decisions are the “norm” is when our nations get eroded. It becomes a matter of degree of unethical or immoral behaviors. In large part this where is America is. Our institutions are corrupted. It will require truth and integrity beginning with the individual to make changes that reflect in our institutions.

Pray the listed items:

  • Pray that individuals recognize and embrace that we are the foundation of what makes up our nations, and that with conviction and truth we can overturn corrupt institutions
  • Pray for honest and transparent relationships
  • Pray against duplicity, flattery, and manipulation in our relationships and let our “yes” be “yes”
  • Pray that money and power are less meaningful than truth and integrity
  • Pray for humility in our land and grace when we make mistakes

Pray for us and yourself:

  • Ask the Lord if you miss the mark in truthfulness and confess it. Then go a new way in His grace.
  • Acknowledge to God any other weaknesses in this area and confess any sin that may be in your way
