    April 2013 Prayer Guide

    Arts & Entertainment:
    The History Channel broadcast a four part series called “The Bible.”  The response was enormous and unexpected.  An estimate of 70 million persons watched the series. 
    Praise God for the success and the propagation of His Word. 

    Business: 
    The economy remains depressed with a few glimmers of growth.  The stock market continues to rise and apartment buildings are being built, but fewer and fewer people are even looking for work.
    Please pray for an improved economic recovery.

    Education:
    Home schooling is popular because parents do not want public schools to teach their children behavior that is immoral. There is a strong Christian homeschool community in New Mexico, and many of them are involved with the the NM Christian Association of Parent Educators (CAPE) organization which is having its annual homeschool convention this week (April 18-20) at Legacy Church in Albuquerque.
    Please pray that virtue and morality will again be taught in public schools and that immoral behavior will no longer be promoted.  Praise God for the options that parents have to offer their children a Christ-centered education at home.

    Family:
    Judge Edward Korman, a federal judge from New York, removed the age restriction for the “morning after” pill.  No prescription is needed.  A child who thinks she might be pregnant is allowed to go to a drug store and purchase chemicals that will abort a baby.
    Pray against the proliferation of abortifacients.

    Government: 
    The battle for traditional marriage is being waged at the Supreme Court and in Santa Fe, where the City Council is considering a Resolution that encourages County Clerks through New Mexico to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couple.  We’re thankful that none of the bills that would have redefined marriage made it through the NM Legislature this year.
    Please pray that all governments will recognize only traditional, one man-one woman marriage, thus protecting freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

    Media:
    Please pray that the media will learn to love the truth.  Media events today tend to be slanted toward political agendas rather than the standard of seeking and reporting the truth.
    Pray for truth in media.

    Religion:
    Thank God for a wonderful Easter season to celebrate the resurrection of our Jesus Christ!  The National Day of Prayer is coming up on Thursday, May 2, 2013.  To see a list of events in your area or to post one for your church, visit http://nationaldayofprayer.org/.  This year’s theme, “Pray for America”, is based on Matthew 12:21 which reminds us that “In His name the nations will put their hope.”  National Day of Prayer Task Force Chairman Shirley Dobson, wife of Dr. James Dobson, has said that, “The American people continue to be plagued with challenges that defy simple answers, and our hope lies in humbly seeking the Almighty’s guidance, protection, and blessing – not only on the National Day of Prayer, but throughout the year.”
    Please pray for a wonderful National Day of Prayer and that many people in our sate and nation would turn their eyes to God.
