On September 9, 2015, the National Day of Prayer Task Force and its many ministry partners began a 56-day trek around the country, traveling 5,915 miles through 26 states to mobilize prayer on more than 50 college campuses. The tour concluded today, November 4, 2015, in Washington D.C. at the Department of Education.
We lift our eyes toward Your Throne, where You reign in righteousness.
Your Word assures us that when Your people cry out in sincerity and humility, You will never turn a deaf ear to us.
We call upon You now, seeking Your forgiveness and favor.
Look over this fevered landscape and heal us, Lord.
Drop knees to the floor and raise eyes to the sky, for we know where our help comes from.
Unite these States again in devotion to You, and blur every dividing line.
Do not give us over to our sins. Give us, instead, over to passionate prayer that moves Your heart.
“May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You.”
In the Name of our Lord and Savior,
- Beth Moore

Oh Heavenly Father, You have made Yourself known to us as a nation by Your mighty works throughout our history.
From the beginning, You have been with us and through many wars and conflicts Your Right Arm has saved us. We have been amazingly and graciously blessed.
Today, we confess our sin of not responding to Your right to rule in our lives and our nation. We have despised and rejected Your will while imposing our own, and are now fully under Your judgments. Draw us back to Yourself, that you may return to us once again. Without You we can do nothing. You have promised that if we honor You, You will once again honor us!
For Your honor and glory we pray,
Almighty God, we pause to reflect on Your character as we seek wisdom for such a time as this.
. In these unsafe days,
You remain all-powerful and able to protect;
. In these uncertain times,
You remain all-knowing, leading us aright;
. In the unprecedented events we’re facing,
You remain absolutely sovereign.
Our times are in Your hands.
Therefore, our dependence on You, is total, not partial. . . our need for Your forgiveness is constant. . . our gratitude for Your grace is profound. . . our love for You is deep.
We ask that You guard and guide our President and all who serve the people of these United States.
May uncompromising integrity mark their lives.
We also ask that You unite us as truly “one nation, under God.” May genuine humility return to our ranks.
And may that blend of integrity and humility heal our land.
In our Lord’s name we pray,
- Chuck Swindoll

Our world is in turmoil... unstable... full of pressures and uncertainties. And sometimes the problems can seem so overwhelming we wonder if there are any answers to the needs, to the troubles, to the tribulations we face. But there is an answer. And that answer can be found in prayer. In fact, God is looking for people like you and me who will so connect with Him in prayer, that He can unleash His power through us. It is a power to overcome any trial, any difficulty, and any challenge. It's a power that can change our nation, and our world!
Join me as we pray for America on the National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 7th!
Dr. Jack Graham, Honorary Chairman of the National Day of Prayer:
We thank you for the many blessings You have poured out on America and we praise You for Your mercy.
You have said: “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” We confess, O Lord, our national and personal sins. We repent and ask forgiveness for all actions that dishonor You.
O God, bless our President and other leaders. Provide them with wisdom and move them to honor You.
Deliver this great nation from all our enemies as we recommit ourselves to trust, serve and obey Your commands.
We pray in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,
