Prayers for America

King of Heaven and Earth

It is overwhelming to know You have granted me the privilege of coming boldly into Your presence through the sacrifice of Your Son.
It pains me to watch America mock Jesus and debase His sacrificial death. Forgive the careless way I have allowed this to happen in my life.  Please withhold Your righteous judgment and begin the restoration of America. Teach us the lessons we need so that You are honored, Jesus is exalted  and Your truth is our guide.
Empower me to become a champion in my family and my work place for Christ.  May my words and actions always reflect well on You.  Give me the grace to love others and to share your good news.
In Jesus name I ask these things, Amen

God of mercy, love and forgiveness

I am amazed by the access You give Your children to your mighty throne.  Thank you for being so available to us.
I am brokenhearted at what America has become and the knowledge that I bear personal responsibility for her failures by neglecting to stand for Your Son and Your truth when I had the opportunity.  Please forgive my failures and intervene in our country.  We, the people need to see Your mighty hand at work again among us.  Restore a holy fear of Your name in our land, heal us and cause Your people to once again stand unbending for the truth You represent and for Your Son.
Begin by purifying me so that I might then share your salvation with boldness and power.
In Jesus name I ask these things, Amen

Creator of Heaven and Earth

Being able to share my daily concerns at Your throne and know that You hear and You care is an amazing blessing that demonstrates your love for your children. Thank You for this privilege.
I come to You today with a heart burdened for America.  She is adrift in a sea of deception and evil and cannot find her way.  Please Father, come among us and show Yourself mighty.  Reveal the lies and hidden agendas of those in power: agendas full of hatred for Your Son It seems impossible for You to remain tolerant much longer.  Rebuke the evil taking root in America.
And, help me represent Your loving kindness and share your truth to all I meet today.
In Jesus name I ask these things, Amen

Dear Heavenly Father

I come before you today humbled by the opportunity to have access to your throne and secure in the knowledge that you welcome me with grace and love.
  I come concerned for America, she has lost her way.  Darkness and evil seem to be winning and we need your light to reveal the depravity we have embraced and we need your truth to find our way.  Show yourself powerful and restrain the enemy.
   Father, I need your strength and wisdom.  Please help me represent your love and grace to those who need you today.  May I be salt and light to those I meet in the course of my everyday routine.
In Jesus name I ask these things, Amen

Dear Father of Light and Truth

Thank you for the access you grant your children to your throne.  By Your grace and mercy, I come asking for your help.
I am surrounded by evil.  Your truth is called a lie.  America has lost her way and without your divine intervention she will stagger and fall in the darkness created by those who have rejected you. Show Yourself mighty over the lies and deceptions of the enemy.
And, Father, I acknowledge I need you personally.  I want the world to see Your Son living in me.  Help me to be quick to speak your truth, slow to anger and to display your love to all You send my way today.
In Jesus name I ask these things, Amen

God of the Universe…

I am so grateful for being able to come boldly to your throne with my prayers because of your love and forgiveness of me through your Son.
I call to you today asking you involve yourself in the affairs of America.  We have become a nation lost in darkness and deceit.  We are a nation blinded by the lies and have lost our way.  Please shine your light on our nation’s sin and reveal the truth that we might reject evil and turn to you.
I also ask your Holy Spirit to empower me to walk uprightly today, to represent you well in my community and to speak truth boldly to those in need of your salvation.
In Jesus name I ask these things, Amen.
