Here is the prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father,
You have given us this promise: "...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 I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:14)
So, we pray to you. We turn from evil and look to you, our God. Please:
Appoint and anoint our next president
In the name of Christ we pray,
