40 Days of Prayer to Change America
(Day 29: Truth)
Jesus declared in John 8:32, "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." A nation must believe truth. The authors of our Declaration of Independence appealed to certain self-evident truths. A love of truth is seen as essential to our rights and liberty. These days, it seems that truth often takes a backseat to partisan bickering and positioning. Those who pray for the nation must learn to love truth and pray for it to come forth in power.
- Pray for thruth to become valued again in American society.
- Pray for truth to be an established standard in our country's news media.
I thank You, Lord, that You are the Truth! You are the Only One able to set men free. Thank You for the freedom we have in You. I thank You that many of our founding fathers understood that freedom ultimately is a gift from You and therefore, is dependent upon Your Truth. Please restore truth to our nation. Lord, expose the lies of the enemy! Bring a fresh love for truth to those who report the news. Give discernment to those who watch, listen or read the news, so that truth might always prevail. In Jesus' name. Amen
