Preamble to the US Constitution

Tomorrow, Thursday March 5 at noon, One Voice Mississippi will host a one hour prayer conference call–an invitation for intercessors to declare, agree, and unify in prayer across the great state of Mississippi. Dial 712-775-7031, code 865-035-070.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Father in Heaven,
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.
Only in You can perfect freedom be found. Yet, we have spurned You and sought freedom by the devices and desires of our own hearts. Do not give this nation over to our sins. Give us, instead, over to passionate prayer that moves Your heart.
May Your unfailing love rest upon the United States of America, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You. Amen.

Portions of this prayer came from Beth Moore, National Day of Prayer 2009.
