Therefore, as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so [a]walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.  Col 2:6-7 NASB

History of the National Day of Prayer

Fasting and prayer are religious exercises; the enjoining them an act of discipline. Every religious society has a right to determine for itself the time for these exercises, and the objects proper for them, according to their own particular tenets; and right can never be safer than in their hands, where the Constitution has deposited it.  —Thomas Jefferson, 1808

2022 National Prayer

Lord, we exalt You. We are filled with awe and wonder as our praise joins the heavenly hosts saying, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts, the whole earth is full of His glory.”

You established the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth. You alone are the Creator; the earth is Yours and all it contains is for Your glory. You created and established all of us as Your image bearers. May our lips and lives continually praise You, reflecting and magnifying You in all our words and ways. You are the author of our days, You have established Your plans and purpose for us. We respond to your glory and authority in obedience to Your Word and will. You have established prayer that we, Your children, can communicate with our Heavenly Father directing, strengthening, and discipling us in Your everlasting love. We join heaven’s activities as we lift up our prayers and pour out our praise, repentance, thanks, intercession and supplication.

Lord, You have established America through the hearts of our founding fathers and the documents they penned declaring our dependence on Your sovereignty and supremacy. We overflow with gratitude having been firmly rooted and built up in our faith in You. Let our reputation be of our faith in Christ alone, our love for all people, and fruitful lives bearing the attitude, affections, and actions of Your Spirit, Who dwells and works within us and through us. We pray for America: the Church, Family, Education, Military, Workplace, Government, Arts, Entertainment and Media. United in Your love, we exalt the Lord who has established us. In Jesus Name we always pray, Amen!

We Exalt the Lord Who has Established the Family:
We praise You Lord as our Creator; making each of us in Your image, and to be in a relationship with You. You are our Father and we are Your children. You said, “It is not good for man to be alone” and created woman, to be united to man in marriage. (Genesis 2:22-24) It is only by Your wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; and by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches. (Prov. 24:3-4) We pray that every parent would train up their children in Your Word and prayer and Your name would be praised in all generations. (Proverbs 22:6 & Psalm 45:17) We pray for the widow and the orphan; that they would know Your everlasting love and presence as You never leave or forsake us.

We Exalt the Lord Who has Established the Church:
Jesus, You are the Head and we are Your body; commanded to go show Your love and share Your gospel. You are the Vine and we are the branches; deeply rooted, and by Your Spirit, for Your glory we bear much fruit. (John 15) You have purchased us with Your blood and defeated death. (Acts 20:28) You are worthy of our wonder and worship always. May all we think, say, and do exalt You as our Savior and express the assurance and hope we have in the salvation You have established for us. You have put Your purpose in us to take Your message and magnify and multiply it in all the places where you have established our steps for Your Kingdom and glory.

We Exalt the Lord Who has Established Education:
Jesus, You are The Teacher and we are Your disciples, Your students. God has established that a wise man is strong, and a man of knowledge increases power. (Proverbs 24:5) From preschool to the college campus we pray that every student, educator, parent and staff would walk in the fear of the Lord, which is the beginning of wisdom. We know even from babes You have established strength and ordained praise (Psalm 8:2) and we pray that nothing would be done to hinder them from coming to you. (Matthew 19:14) Convict every campus to teach Truth and for all generations to know Your Word and ways.

We Exalt the Lord Who has Established the Military:
The LORD has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all. God alone commands Heaven’s army, His angels, mighty in strength, who perform His word, obeying the voice of His word! May our military, like all His hosts, bless the Lord as they serve Him, and do His will. (Psalm 103) May our military leaders all know, “by wise guidance you will wage war, and in abundance of counselors there is victory.” (Proverbs 24:6) We pray that our military would dwell in the shelter of the Most High and abide in the shadow of the Almighty – always keeping alert as they serve and preserve freedom. (Psalm 91:1) Lord You will establish peace for us, and Your peace You have given us (Isaiah 26:12, John 14:27)

We Exalt the Lord Who has Established the Government:

America was imagined in Your righteousness; with vision of freedom and justice You established us. Lord, in obedience to You we pray for all who are in authority and that they will come to knowledge of truth and be saved. (1Tim 2: 2) Every
person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. (Romans 13:1) We pray that our laws would honor and exalt You. Let justice flow from our courts, in every individual, and sector of society as we claim and cling to Your promise of Your throne Jesus, “There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace …to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore …” (Isaiah 9:7)

We Exalt the Lord Who has Established Business and the Workplace:

You are the Potter and we are the clay; Your workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which You established and prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. (Isaiah 64:8, Ephesians 2:10) You have established our gifts and talents, education and experiences and we commit our works to You knowing our plans will be established. (Proverbs 16:3) You set Adam’s hand to cultivate the garden, You created us to be active and to accomplish; to labor and not be lazy in our living and in our giving. (Exodus 20:9) Our work is worship; a response to Your work and will in our lives.

We Exalt the Lord Who has Established Arts, Entertainment and Media:

Lord, You poured out Your beauty and complexity in Your creation. You establish our talents for Your testimony; our gifts for Your glory on stage, sets, and screens. (James 1:17, 1 Corinthians 12:7-11) We pray that the arts would exalt You and reflect the majesty of our Creator; never worshiping creation or that made by our hands; (Deut. 4:15-20) that music and museums would be filled with Your praise, and that media would speak the truth in love. (Ephesians 4:15) Let those who dance worship You as King David did, expressing praise and overflowing with gratitude. (2 Samuel 6:14)
