Tomorrow begins many 40 Day prayer initiatives for our nation. It is also Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, a day to fast and repent from sundown this evening until sundown tomorrow. Please join in praying for our nation and for marriage.
The battle over marriage and the upcoming elections are primarily spiritual: do we worship God and follow His design for living life as men and women, or can we mandate our own realities?
See the attachment for a list of many prayer efforts. I would like to especially recommend one that is not on the list, which has a daily meditation and a prayer for our state and marriage: CLOTHE US O LORD 40 Days of Prayer for Cleansing and Covering Our Shameful Nakedness.

D a i l y P r a y e r :
In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we confess our sins of cowardice and compromise.
We have violated Your holy commands in regards to what we have done to our bodies and other bodies.
And in our compromise we have become cowards,
Unwilling to stand for what we know to be true for the dignity of all.
We ask that You might have mercy on Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington;
Uphold marriage in these states, and in our nation, as the Supreme Court prepares to rule on 'gay marriage'.
