Scripture for Reflection and Preparation
2 Peter 3:9-10 “9 The lord does not delay His promise, as some understand delay, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish, but all to come to repentance. 10 But the Day of the lord will come like a thief; on that day the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, the elements will burn and be dissolved, and the earth and the works on it will be disclosed.”
Psalm 42:1-2 “1 as a deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, God. 2 I thirst for God, the living God. When can I come and appear before God?”
Psalm 119:81 “81 I long for your salvation; I put my hope in your word.”

National Thirst for God
Nations can change in an instant when people begin to thirst for God.
Ask God to...
• Show the nation its need for His truth
• Help reveal the emptiness of false beliefs
• Reveal to people their desperate need for relationship with Him
• Cause people to see the need for biblical answers to our nation’s problems
• Draw the nation to Himself
• Create an intellectual thirst for His word
• Turn the hearts of the lost to His church for spiritual guidance
