A Prayer for Moral Leadership

Let us pray for our nation,

Heavenly Father, Giver of all that is good, we pray for our morally wounded nation and its entire people.

The culture war between our people continues to grow, We are looking for hope and answers in the wrong places. Laziness is rewarded, while licentious lifestyles are never admonished. Our moral standards have been dumbed down little by little by little. Human life means so little during these times.

Our ego driven political leaders speak with forked tongues and convoluted logic. We are losing our liberties on a daily basis, while politicians buy votes with funds taken from the most productive members of our society.

Heavenly Father, we pray that you will put moral leadership into the hearts and minds of our decision makers. We pray for your protection of all the men and women serving our nation in foreign lands.

We Pray in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
