A Prayer for Our Nation

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for making us in your image –distinct and one-of-a-kind! We praise you for the idea that is America and for everything that is true and right about our nation. Most especially, we thank you for our individual freedom and both the blessings and burdens that come along with it.Thank you for our natural resources, our innovative businesses, our independent personality and for our giving spirit.

Forgive us now – both as individuals and as a nation – for turning away from your word and your principles. Make us sensitive to the truth. Give us a hunger and a heart for the truth. Keep us from being passive or indifferent, and instead, instill within us the courage to do mighty things for you right now. Show us what we need to do today to promote and preserve your truth for tomorrow.

Allow us to remain distinct and unique as a people, that shining city on a hill. May our actions imitate you and your goodness. May our character reflect your character. May our stewardship glorify you. And, may our leaders love you and be champions of your truth.

We pray as one for Godly leadership for our country, and we ask that you protect us from anything else. Grant us the courage to speak boldly and act wisely in defending the principles that matter most. Disrupt and dismantle any authority or plans that would lead us away from your favor and your glory.

Unify us once again as one nation under God, indivisible and with liberty and justice for all.

In Jesus name we pray,
Amen
