You answered.

On the 61st National Day of Prayer, members of the community responded to the question, “What is your prayer for the nation?”

The annual day of prayer inspired several events and services across the area Thursday.

At each event, participants prayed for their country, focusing on seven centers of influence: government, military, media, business, education, church and family.

__________

I pray for a spiritual awakening in our country! I pray that our hearts would break over the things that breaks Gods heart. I pray for the things that could be and that we as believers would have the conviction that they should be!!

– Wesley Weatherford, the pastor of Oasis Church in Augusta

__________

May those families in Augusta out of work find good jobs, may those sick know healing, may those serving America in the military know strength and safety, and may we all remember the blessings we enjoy as Americans. I offer a prayer for peace based on John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you: not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

– Maria Sheffield, candidate for the U.S. Congress from the 12th district of Georgia

__________

I am praying for One Nation Under GOD...not red or blue...not Republican or Democratic~GOD help us all~

– Kim Holmes

__________

Lord Jesus, come quickly!

– Freeman Little

__________

I will pray for the separation of church and state.

– Andy Bruner

__________

Praying for a new leader who has Christ first in his life and will lead this country in the right direction

– Karen Phillips-Foot

I am praying we soon remove the false idol called ‘Government’ that so many worship. Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Israel, Moses, Joshua, Jesus, Peter, Paul, and the rest of the first church did not need ‘government’ – it was the Israelites of Samuel’s day who looked to the Philistines and demanded God grant them a King that they might follow the ways of the Philistine. Sadly, too many today still follow the idolatrous path.

– Jeff Sexton

__________

I am praying for the preservation and protection of families. Communities, cities, states and the nation are best strengthened by a foundation of strong families which require strong marriages with fully-committed spouses. As goes the family, so goes the country. United we stand; divided we fall.

– Theresa Johnson Von Plinsky
