Prayer has always been at the center of American life, because America is a nation of believers.President Donald J. Trump - National Day of Prayer, May 4, 2018
A TIME OF RENEWING HOPE AND COURAGE
You may wonder if a peaceful and quiet, godly, and dignified life is possible in our world. Yet Paul assures Timothy that this is true. During the throes of the Korean War, Billy Graham said, “What a thrilling, glorious thing it would be to see the leaders of our country today kneeling before Almighty God in prayer. What a thrill would sweep this country. What renewed hope and courage would grip the Americans at our hour of peril.” As you pray for the nation’s leaders, this same courage and hope can come to you. Many headlines focus on negativity or disasters, which can so easily fill us with fear and anxiety, but we must cast it all upon Him in prayer (1 Peter 5:6-7). In doing so, you will find a peaceful and quiet life.
All of us, in our churches, in our homes, and in our hearts, may beseech God to grant us wisdom to know the course which we should follow, and strength and patience to pursue that course steadfastly.President Harry S. Truman - National Day of Prayer, June 17, 1952
A PRAYER FOR THE NATION
God, our Father, we love You and we praise You. We give You honor as Lord over all, from border to border and coast to coast across the United States of America.
We confess that too often we take the cares of the world upon ourselves in anxiety and worry, when You have so clearly said that we are to cast those burdens upon You.
We pray that truth and righteousness reign again in America, beginning with the president and leaders of our government.
We pray for protection and guidance for President Trump and members of his administration. For congressional members and upon all those who sit as leaders and judges over us.
Open their hearts that they may see Your will be accomplished. We also pray for their health and families and loved ones.
Thank you for watching over us and protecting our country. May Your grace and mercy overflow and may Your name be glorified in all that we say and do.

Prayer is today as powerful a force in our Nation as it has ever been. We as a Nation should never forget this source of strength. And while recognizing that the freedom to choose a Godly path is the essence of liberty, as a Nation we cannot but hope that more of our citizens would, through prayer, come into a closer relationship with their Maker.President Ronald Reagan - National Day of Prayer, March 19, 1981
