Prayer for our Nation

“Dear God, You are the Almighty One. We are still as Job, silenced as he was when You ask us ‘Can we…?’ for our answer is still ‘no.’ We can not control the sea. We can not control the wind. We can not stop earthquakes, mud slides, volcanoes, hurricanes, tornadoes, or even the rain and snow.

We can not stop hatred, lying, cheating, robbery, and murder. We can’t even stop ourselves from thinking evil of others, wishing ill on our enemies, desiring revenge, cutting ourselves off from those who oppose our point of view. We are no less guilty of injustice than those we accuse of being so.

Your righteousness is our only hope. Forgive our sins and heal our land. May we repent as did the nation of Nineveh when they heard from Jonah of Your coming judgement. Our currency reminds us every day how far we have distanced ourselves from You. May ‘In God we trust ‘ become true again.

Have mercy on us. Forgive our sins and heal our land. I pray this prayer to You on behalf of all my loved ones, friends, and family. In the name of Jesus, amen.”
