VB121: Prayer For America

Prayer For America

Lord God our Father, You are great and awesome. You are faithful to Your word, and never fail in Your promises. Father, we have sinned, committed iniquity, acted wickedly, and rebelled, and turned away from Your commandments. Father, you are merciful and compassionate. You have extended your mercy and grace to us, otherwise things would be much worse than they are.

God in heaven, our hearts have hardened and we have turned against You. We have abandoned the teachings of your Word, and have taught our children the unstable ways of man. We have chosen pleasure rather than holiness, and lawlessness rather than justice. We have condoned evil, calling it good while persecuting those who walk in righteousness.

Lord, this day we are shameful—our president, our governors, and the people of the United States of America are confused and sinful because of our unfaithfulness to you. Our leadership is deluded, because we have sinned against you. Lord, God you are merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against you.

All fifty of our states have transgressed your law, and have destroyed the marriage covenant, and killed our babies. We have gone to sleep and left doors open for evil rulers to take high places of authority, only to bring ruin and disaster. But Lord, we know you have delivered your people out of tyranny before with a mighty hand.

Father, we have sought to do things by following the wisdom of the world instead of coming to You in humility, and asking for Your wisdom. We now come to You in lowliness of mind, being fervent and diligent in prayer.

We believe the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin and unrighteousness. Lord we know you are bigger than our failures. You are bigger than any nation, and that you have caused an awakening. Lord we believe that you will finish the great work that you started with this country.

Lord, forgive us as we repent and begin to trust in your promises again! Lord for the sake of your name, and our forefathers who paid for the liberty of this nation, deliver us and forgive us. Thank you Lord, for your correction and mercy that you have extended to us. God bless America! Amen.

God bless you my friend,
