40 Days of Prayer to Change America

October 5, 2012

NATIONAL SECURITY

"Do not be afraid of them; the LORD your God himself will fight for you."

—Deut. 3:22 (NIV)

Fear can paralyze a nation, or it can cause its people to react in inappropriate ways. In Deuteronomy 3:22, God gives us a direct command when we face our enemies: "Do not be afraid of them" (NIV). We don't have to give in to fear. God promises to fight on our behalf—when a nation has committed itself to honor Him and follow His ways.

  • Ask the Lord to pour out a spirit of repentance on our nation.
  • Ask the Lord to help the United States to line up with His purposes so that He will choose to fight on our behalf.

DAILY PRAYER

Father, we turn from fear and turn to You. We indeed have enemies as a nation who seek our destruction. We have attempted to stand against them in our own strength, all the while rejecting Your lordship over us. Forgive us, Lord. Heal our land. Help us to turn back to You, so that You will fight for us.
