A Daily Prayer based on Ezra 7 for 1/20/2022

Lord God, I pray that you, the God of heaven, will work by the Spirit in my life and in the lives of ______________________, that we may set our hearts to study your word, and to teaching its truths to others. I pray that each of us will not only devote ourselves to studying your word but also to obeying it. May each of us become well-versed in your word, and be well-taught in matters concerning your truth. I pray that your gracious hand will be on us, and that you will grant us everything we need to do what you have called us to do. May we do everything in accordance with your wisdom, and do with diligence whatever you have prescribed for us. I pray that we will take courage because we know that your hand is on us. We ask together that you will raise up among us pastors and spiritual leaders who are well versed in your word, who devote themselves to study and obey your truth, and to teaching its decrees to everyone in our land. May they become skilled and learned in matters concerning your truth and teach us accurately the way of God. We pray that our courts will be places where justice according to righteous laws is strictly executed. We pray that you will put it into the heart of political leaders to bring honor to your house, and to extend their good favor to our spiritual leaders. May they recognize the importance of allowing whatever you prescribe to be done with diligence, so that your wrath may not come against our land. It is in Jesus’ name that we pray these things. Amen.

"There is no better way to pray according to the will of God than by praying his own word back to him. These daily prayers are crafted, as much as possible, to incorporate the very words of the Scripture."

Never before in the history of our country has America faced a moral crisis like the one before us today. The foundations of our government are crumbling right before our eyes. Our churches are abandoning God, our families are in shambles. There is only one hope for restoration - the Lord Jesus Christ.
