Thursday Thirteen

**Special prayer request and update -
I just receive an e-mail about a lady in my church. Her name is Judy, and she is in the hospital bleeding from her brain. She just had open heart surgery several months back, and they discovered several health problems at that time. They are doing a cat scan to see what's wrong and if they can't get it stopped, they will do surgery around 5:00pm eastern. Her sister Kathy has asked that a prayer chain be started for her. Please join our church in this prayer for Judy and her family. She is a new Christian and she needs strong prayer support at this difficult time**

**A brief prayer before I start this week's
Thursday Thirteen about The National Day of Prayer.

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for this nation and for the freedoms we have to come to you in prayer. I pray that you would be with our nation in a great way today. Grant the petitions of our hearts. Thank You, Father. In Jesus' precious name, Amen.

Now to the Thirteen**

Thirteen Things We Need To Pray About On This National Day of Prayer
**Update - you should also go to Praying for Your Prodigal's post about the National Day of Prayer. It's beautiful!**

1. Our President and his family (whether you agree with him or not, the man needs prayer. The position he is in holds more stress than I'd ever care to have.)

2. Our Congress (These people hold the power to make decisions that will shape our lives)

3. The Supreme Court, and all the lesser courts (These people need wisdom to interpret the law)

4. Our troops (Whether you think they should be fighting or not, these young men and women need our prayers everyday)

5. The survivors of last years hurricanes and this year's tornados and fires.(These people are still so far from having their lives back to normal)

6. Preachers across the land. (So many of them are facing opposition on every side)

7. Our teachers (This is becoming a more dangerous job everyday. These people need prayers for wisdom and strength. They also need prayers for more support from parents.)

8. Our policemen. (These men and women put their lives on the line everyday, and most don't respect them at all. They need prayer in a great way.)

9. Our firemen and EMT workers. (For strength to face the things they face daily)

10. Our children (Children are growing up way too fast in our culture. They see things way too young. Our children need God's help.)

11. Our doctors, nurses, hospital workers. (Many of these people are worn thin because of a lack of workers. Pray that God will grant them strength and that people would appreciate them more.)

12. Our blue collar workers. (These people go to work everyday to keep America strong. Some barely make enough to get by. They deserve our prayers.)

13. Our poverty stricken and homeless. (Some are there by their own doings. Some have lost jobs, or are unable to work due to sickness. No matter the situation, we need to take these to God in prayer.)

Even though he's not my favorite person, I pray for our pres and other leaders that they don't make a mess any messier. :)

You're the second person to remind me about national day of prayer

Excellent post. Thanks for the list ... it's amazing how important it is to pray for our country's leadership! Especially today, the National Day of Prayer!!!

"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." 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

Thank you for knowing that the Courts interpret the law and their branch doesn't make it. I really hate it when people try to explain separation of powers incorrectly to me. Which happens a lot since of my law degree.

Thanks for stopping by my TT. Happy Thursday!

i'm in a different country, but those are all prayers that could apply here too.

What a good list. It's so easy to get caught up in all of the things I'm praying for for my little family and circle of friends. I forget how many people could really use and benefit from my added faith and prayers. Thanks for the reminder.

No offense, but I don't think prayer is enough to help the current state of affairs.
