Pray for America
The Apostle Paul:
*He cited the call to pray for leaders from 1 Timothy 2:
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. (v. 1–4)
When Paul urged making intersession “for rulers and those in authority” (v. 2), he followed up with his rationale. It wasn’t so Christians would have better economics, more political power, more cultural influence for sound laws,* or any other sort of worldly gain. He said to pray so that believers might “live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth” (2:2–4). *he wanted the church to aspire to quiet lives. Emperors were immoral; he wanted the church to be godly and holy. Paul wanted the church to be unhindered in spreading the Good News. *So a great way to pray for our Nation & leaders is that they would look to Christ as Savior, live a righteous life, and exercise his authority in such a way that our gospel work can flourish unhindered.

Today’s devotional reading for:FRIDAY, JUL 3, 2015
Blessed Is The Nation
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…—Psalm 33:12
This time of year is always a perfect time to dwell on the founding of our nation. Did you know that God’s providence played an enormous part in the settling and founding of this country? George Washington alluded to God’s providence many times as he recounted our nation’s development. Let’s look at just one stunning example, forgotten by many today.
In the first year of the Revolutionary War, America almost lost the entire conflict. British General Howe had cornered Washington’s army in Brooklyn Heights. The British forces surrounded the American forces in a great semicircle, and behind them British ships could close them off at any time. In fact, the British intended to do just that the next day and thus end the war.
The Americans had no way to escape. Nevertheless, that night, Washington endeavored to escape, realizing the helplessness of his position. He collected every vessel he could find, from rowboats to sloops, and set about to evacuate his troops by night. Counselors advised against such an escape because the British would see them in the moonlight and hear the splashing of their oars. But Washington was determined to go ahead anyway. Just as the American troops began to launch their vessels, a strange and unusual fog rose up and completely covered all of them! The next morning, when General Howe gave the orders to close the trap, he was astonished to find that Washington and his entire army had disappeared!
Precisely because of many incidents like these, Washington wrote after the war: “I am sure that never was a people, who had more reason to acknowledge a divine interposition in their affairs, than those of the United States.” Today, thank God for His providence during the formation this great nation. And please join me in reminding people of God’s hand in founding it. Let’s give credit to Whom it is due.
The hand of Providence has been so conspicuous in all this, that he must be worse than an infidel that lacks faith, and more than wicked, that has not gratitude enough to acknowledge his obligations. —GEORGE WASHINGTON

In contrast to the 44th president of these United States of America many if not most of the previous PotUS' had conventional Christian beliefs. Admittedly not necessarily the same as twenty first century evangelicals of these times.
Records indicate that we have had:
4 Baptist, 1 Catholic, 2 Congregationalists, 3 Disciples of Christ (including LBJ & Reagan), 2 Dutch Reformed, 12 Episcopalian (including FDR,Ford,Geo. H.W. & "dubya") 4 Methodist, 7 Presbyterian, 2 Quakers, 4 Unitarian, and 6 nondenominational (including Pres. Obama) http://www.princeton.edu/~achaney/tmve/wiki100k/docs/Religious_affiliations_of_United_States_Presidents.html
Thomas Jefferson wrote to William Short on October 31, 1819, he was convinced that the fragmentary teachings of Jesus constituted the "outlines of a system of the most sublime morality which has ever fallen from the lips of man."
A Prayer in Dark Times
"Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity..." Franklin D. Roosevelt
Oh! How we need a national leader, a person of bold, humble Faith in God and Jesus to inspire us as a nation and people to respect one another as our selves. A leader with similar qualities of states-men-ship and faith of Washington, Lincoln, and others for the future.
Lincoln is quoted saying; "I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go."
I pray that the Lord raise up the faithful, honorable person for the presidential position that will pray as the predecessors have prayed.
"Almighty GOD; we make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection, that thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States of America at large. And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of The Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech thee, through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen"
- George Washington - April 30th, 1789
