A Forgiving God: I want to bless You with praise, Father, because You are a forgiving God, gracious, and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in Love. Neh. 9:17 They refused to listen and failed to remember the miracles you performed among them.

Contentment: Lord please show the children of this generation the value of being content with what they have. Help them learn, as Paul did, that knowing You and trusting You is the secret to contentment and that they can only achieve this contentment through You.

7. Prayers for Public Schools
Sexual Purity: God Almighty I plead, in the Name of Jesus, that the students in this school will grow up honoring their sexuality and committing to sexual abstinence until marriage. Pour out on them the strength and grace they need to live out this commitment. 1Thes. 4:3-5 It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; 4 that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, 5 not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God;
8. Pray for People in Authority
Lord, the authorities in our nation are in place by Your design. Lord Save them, teach them Your ways and give them the desire for honesty, integrity, and loyalty. Ps. 26 Vindicate me, Lord, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the Lord and have not faltered. Test me, Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind; for I have always been mindful of your unfailing love and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness. I do not sit with the deceitful, nor do I associate with hypocrites. I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked. I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, Lord, proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds. Lord, I love the house where you live, the place where your glory dwells. Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with those who are bloodthirsty, in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes. I lead a blameless life; deliver me and be merciful to me. My feet stand on level ground; in the great congregation I will praise the Lord.

2Chron. 7:14 “If my people … and will humble themselves and will pray and seek my face AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS …” Holy Spirit motivate God’s people to meditate on the Word of God so that they may keep pure and free from sin allowing the God of heaven to conform them into the image of Christ. Rom. 8:29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.

Comfort and Save those in jail and in prison.
