To come together as a community to encourage prayer in a Judeo-Christian expression for morality and ethics in the lives of all people in our community, county, state and nation, especially for those in positions of leadership.
Throughout our history, we have turned to prayer for strength, inspiration, and guidance. We will enjoy a delicious breakfast as five community leaders in the Santa Ynez Valley recognize the role prayer has played in their lives and intercede for leadership in the areas of Business, Education, Family, Government, Military, Media, and Church.
The 2021 National Prayer For America
Lord, we exist to give You glory. We exist because of Your glory, and in Your glory, as our Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer. We give you thanks and praise for every breath and moment You have given to us. We repent of our sin; for the shameful things we have done against You and for our silence when we did not speak up to proclaim Your Name, profess Your Word, or protect and practice Your will.
We ask Your forgiveness.
Lord, we look up and see the billions of stars. You created, and we praise You. We look around and see the billions of people You created in Your image; uniquely, fearfully, wonderfully, and we thank You. Wrap us in Your Spirit and unite us in Your family, Lord.
Thank You for loving us first. In Your love for the whole world, You sent Your Son to save us.
Jesus, in You alone we have abundant and everlasting life. Thank you for teaching and leading us to love and live, fruitful, and faithful. In Your life, death, resurrection, and ascension You are our Lord, our love, our life, and our liberty. You came to “bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners.” You have freed us from the penalty and shame of our sin; free to live life as You designed and Your destiny for our Nation.
Spirit search us, convict us, as we repent for our sin and the sins of America. Please cleanse, fill, and send us. We rejoice, knowing that Your forgiveness makes us acceptable and effective vessels for Your love, life and liberty in our family, church, education, workplace, military, government, art, entertainment, and media.
We pray that America will be united in love to serve You with all our hearts, all our ways, and all of our days. Unite us to pray, love; to live and walk by the Spirit. Conform and transform us as we pray and proclaim, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is,there is liberty.”
We pray this is the name of Jesus, Amen.
