8 Things Americans Can Pray For To Bring Our Nation Back to God

Lord, help us to be humble.
“If my people will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,” says I Chronicles 7:14. Humility entails letting go of principles that prevent you from loving and forgiving others. Pray this: Lord, humble me. Help me to see that I’m not always right.

Why don’t we do what we can to right society’s wrongs when blanket sins pervade our world? To seek justice means to stand up for the poor, downtrodden, and misfits of society; the more Christians do good deeds in the name of justice, the better the world becomes.
Lord, help me not to be silent.
