2008 Prayer for Our Nation
By Dr. Ravi Zacharias, 2008 Honorary Chairman, National Day of Prayer Task Force

Holy Father, in a world where so many are hungry,
You have given us food in abundance;
In a world where so many are hurting,
You offer to bind up our wounds;
In a world where so many are lonely,
You offer friendship to every heart;
In a world longing for peace,
You offer hope.

Yet, we are so stubborn and resistant.
Have mercy upon us, Lord.

Our nation is at a crossroads this year;
we look to you to be our strength and shield.
Please give us the guidance to elect one who will
honor youand to respond to the wisdom from above
so that our hope may be renewed and our blessings be treasured.

In God's holy name.
