Day 1

September 28, 2012


"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."

—Romans 12:2 (NIV)

Our nation doesn't know it, but America needs the church. Not just as a bunch of good-deed doers, but as those who give direction for the future and who preserve and protect in the present. We've not done this well, but that is the place in which God has put us. We are to be light, helping people (and nations) avoid the pitfalls of darkness. We are to be salt, both as seasoning and protection for our society.

The nation cannot afford a sidelined church, taken out by worldliness and confusion. Paul commands us to allow ourselves no longer to be conformed by worldly patterns, but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Only then we will understand the will of God, not just for our own lives, but so that we can be a prophetic voice to our nation.

  • Repent of the church's failure to be light and salt in our society.
  • Pray for a transformation in the church through a renewing of our minds.
  • Ask the Lord for the church to rise up with a strong prophetic voice for America.


Lord, forgive Your church for allowing worldliness to overshadow Your light. We pray that Your transforming power would saturate our culture and renew minds. We ask that the church would rightly take her place and be the voice of Your truth that our nation so desperately needs to hear.
