National Day of Prayer 

Thursday, May 3, 2012

Theme: "One Nation Under God" 

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord"

(Psalm 33:12)

    Each year, the Honorary Chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force writes a prayer that can be prayed by millions of Americans simultaneously. The prayer for 2012 was written by Dr. David Jeremiah:

Heavenly Father, Every good gift and perfect gift comes from You. You are a faithful God and Your mercy endures forever.

You have promised to bless the nation that trusts in You. Our currency proclaims "In God We Trust," but in our culture we are far from You.

In the words of the prophet Daniel, "We have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments."

We come before You once more, seeking Your forgiveness and mercy. You, O God, are our only hope...Hear our prayer and, for Your honor’s sake, shine Your face upon this nation.

Give our leaders the desire to seek Your wisdom and the courage to follow Your guidance...and watch over the men and women of our armed forces as they sacrifice for the cause of freedom.

We give You thanks for all You have done for us, and we earnestly pray that You will help us become, once again, a nation whose God is the Lord.

In the name of Your Son, and our Savior, we pray this prayer. Amen.

If your community or your church has no observance of the National Day of Prayer, pray at home alone or with your family or friends. For information and resources you may contact the following:
