From the beginning of this remarkable nation, in both good times and hard times, prayer has been the key component in every gathering of Congress and presidents. God has provided a unique opportunity for each and every one of us – and us collectively as a nation – to go to Him in confession, praise, thanksgiving, and supplication. The Lord has promised to listen to those prayers, to respond, to reassure, and to enable us to glorify Him however He chooses to answer.
Job 33:26 [A repentant man] shall pray to God, and He will delight in him, He shall see His face with joy, For He restores to man His righteousness.
We come to You with open hearts and ask that You speak to our spirits with words of wisdom and direction, that we may know how You wish for us to pray. Help Your humble servants to speak words of praise and adoration, for You are the King of kings and the lord of lords. Teach us, Lord, that we may know You and the power of Your resurrection. Fill us with Your presence and forgive our shortcomings. Lead us, O Lord, to a higher place, that You might be lifted up and draw all men to You.
