Today is Thursday, May 2nd, 2019; Karen's Korner #4024

Today is set aside each year as 'National Day of Prayer' - May 2 (always the first Thursday in May).

Here are four prayer priorities for America from the national organizers which has as its 2019 theme "Love One Another" (in part):

Ask God to bless the United States of America

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord----the people He has chosen to be His own possessions!"

~ Psalm 33:12

"God, bless America spiritually in a new and fresh way and move us to return to You as our Father and Lord.

"God, bless America by raising up godly leaders in all areas of our nation:  locally, regionally, statewide, and nationally.

"God, bless America by securing our nation from all evil and harm, from within our nation and from outside our nation."


Pray for Americans to Love One Another, beginning among Christ followers

"Love one another. Just as I have loved you."

~ John 13:34

"God, you are the only One who can bring unity, harmony, and oneness in America. We look only to You, asking You for this love to prevail.

"God, we ask that You create a Love One Another movement across America. Empower us to make every effort to live in unity with one another."


Pray for the centers of influence in America

"First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all those who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity."

~1 Timothy 2:1 & 2

"We ask You, Lord, to bless executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the United States government to value one another, respect one another, and work together for the good of our nation.

"We pray, Lord, for America's military, its leaders, and all personnel to be protected by You, and that they have the courage to depend on You.

"Lord, bless the members of the media in America to be respectful of all people, bearing truth, and inspiring our nation with stories about loving one another."


Ask God for the National Day of Prayer to become a catalytic spiritual movement across America.

~They all were continually united in prayer."

~ Acts 1:14

"Lord, we ask You to call your church to love one another, so Your church can call our nation to love and unity both today and in the future.

"Lord, we ask You to move each of us to love on another in the same way you love us:  willfully, sacrificially, and unconditionally.

"Lord, we ask You to use the thousands and thousands of observances of the National Day of Prayer to be a catalytic spiritual movement across America, ushering in the revival of the church and the next Great Spiritual Awakening in America.
