Wisconsin's absentee Governor sent this prayer out on facebook yesterday. As often happens at Cogdis, we bring you behind the scenes. We were lucky enough to have someone leak us one of his original rough drafts(before someone with a college degree edited it):
Reflections on the Power of Prayer and the National Day of Prayer
As we observe the National Day of Prayer today, I wanted to share with you how the power of prayer
We believe in the power of prayer because we have felt the power of prayer.
Over the last four years, my family and I went through some very dark and challenging times
What kept us going during these times was the power of prayer,and the millions of dollars my bosses gave me. 2nd Corinthians 12:9 was a constant reminder, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Knowing that people across not only our state, but all across the country were praying for us gave us a greater sense of security and allowed us to move forward together as a family. It helped me focus on the
That’s why I make it a point of praying for all of the leaders of our country—not just the ones I vote for—because it’s not about praying for someone to win or lose: it’s about praying for their guidance and safety.
I pray not just for our leaders but for the continued blessings of God on this great country of ours, which is what the National Day of Prayer is all about. I pray that our best days of peace, prosperity, and revival are ahead of us,
We need a revival in our homes and our communities where parents are given the choice to make the decisions about what’s right for their children.
We need a revival for our churches and houses of worship. Lawmakers and federal bureaucrats have been intruding too far into the lives of the faithful.
We need revival for our world. We need to stand with our allies of religious and personal liberty and face the reality that there is evil in this world that wants to destroy people because of their faith and belief in freedom and justice. When freedom-loving people are attacked anywhere, it’s an attack on all of us. We need America to lead again in the fight to protect people of faith against our enemies.
This is what I pray for everyday and on this National Day of Prayer, and I hope you will join me
God Bless you and God Bless America
