The Fast Forward 40-Day Prayer Guide is a resource that was built to serve those who have a desire to pray for revival in America and who desire to see our nation transformed for the glory of God.
The expectation is that this guide will be used over 40 days. Over this period, this guide will lead you, as an intercessor for America, through a process of praying for every “sphere” of influence in our society. As an intercessor, you will be praying for five or six consecutive days for each sphere. For example, from day one through day six, you will be praying for the the “Church (Religion)” Sphere. From days seven through twelve, you will be praying for the “Family and Marriages” sphere.
Within each of these broad focuses, you will be given a daily prayer focus, listed at the top of each page of the guide. The red tab at the bottom of each page will remind you what sphere you are praying for on any given day.

Scripture instructs us to pray for all in authority (1 Timothy 2:1-2), but how do we do that, exactly? Here are 30 ways to pray for our leaders—our judges, educators, police chiefs, school board members, military officers, elected officials, and others who serve our country by leading. By doing this, you are standing in the gap, intervening between God and those in authority. You can also join others who are praying for our nation’s leaders by checking out our online prayer community: GetAmericaPraying.com.
Stand together with other praying believers, share prayer requests and answers, educate yourself on issues and more.

As we Pray for America, who’s pledge of allegiance recounts that we are “one nation under God”, and whose currency states that it is “in God we trust”, we want American’s to encounter the God who rules over their country. He is the One who gave us this promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." As we encounter Him, we will be changed, and will change America through prayer.
