A Prayer For Our Nation
Thank you for making us in your image—as individual souls, distinct and one-of-a-kind!
We praise you for the idea that is America and for everything that is true and noble 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. Heighten our sensitivity to what is right and good.
Keep us Lord, from being passive, lazy or indifferent, and instead, instill within us the courage and drive to do mighty things for you right now.
Show us what we need to do today to promote and preserve the truth for tomorrow.
Renew a right spirit within us and soften our hearts with grace toward one another. Infuse us with a hunger for the truth. Grant each of us the discernment
to distinguish your direction in the midst of distraction.
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 principles and your truth. We pray as one for Godly leadership throughout our nation,
and we ask that you protect us from anything else.
Grant us the guts to speak boldly and act wisely in defending the principles that matter most. Disrupt and dismantle any authority or schemes that would obscure your will and lead us away from your favor and glory.
Unify us once again as one nation under God, indivisible and with liberty and justice for all.
In Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
