It was September 11, 2001, when the White House was evacuated — people were fleeing to the nearest exits in mass exodus as stated by one of the White House employees. America was under attack! Let us not grow weary and complacent — there are people who want to destroy our nation. Rise up, O church of the Living God and pray…supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence (1 Timothy 2:1-2).

Heavenly Father, thank You for the United States of America, the only country in the world founded upon religious freedom and Your Word. Thank You for the founding fathers, Lord, who looked to You for guidance to develop the kind of government that would be pleasing to You. Our president and his advisers need Your wisdom to safeguard freedom. By wisdom You laid the earth’s foundations, and by understanding You set the heavens in place. I pray that these leaders will turn their ears to wisdom and apply their hearts to understanding. May the light of Your word run swiftly and prevail throughout the USA, and Your love burn brightly in this land. Give us a rebirth of freedom, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
