Father, We Want Our Country Back

IwojimaFather, only You know what’s coming. You have told us to pray–to come boldly before Your throne of grace. We need mercy and grace right now in this time of need. We want godly leadership in this nation–men and women who will walk with You and depend on Your guidance to recover the moral, economic, and security ground that we’ve lost.

We want You to speak to the millennials about the things they want that are contrary to their own good and the good of the nation. Give them true wisdom and knowledge.

Father, cause like-minded nations to come together with the U.S. for the good of all mankind according to Your laws.

Give us domestic tranquility and economic prosperity because there are hundreds of thousands of us who worship and exalt You every day.

Father, we ask that a spirit of forgiveness overtake the spirit of bitterness. Let it begin in the house of God with Christians so that those outside will look at us and say, “See how they love one another.”

Turn the hearts of fathers to toward their children and the children’s hearts towards their fathers. Bring men together to mentor each other with biblical wisdom and brotherly love.

Father, remind mothers they must put their relationship with You first, then their husbands, and finally their children. Give them an understanding of the proper balance of caring for themselves and caring for others.

May Your Spirit of kindness and love influence people to give freely to each other out of what You have given to them.

Father, we ask that neighbors will forgive each other when there have been offenses.

Where there is a spirit of fear may we give all our cares over to You, not in passivity, but in trust. You have promised to meet all of our needs according to Your riches in Christ Jesus.

Make us bold in our love for the Lord Jesus, not ashamed. He will never leave us or forsake us. May we choose to follow Him wherever He leads.

Where we are in sin, make us humble. Show us where we must repent and be restored in fellowship with You and others.

We believe Father that we should not have to live under ungodly laws like abortion and same-sex marriage. Show Yourself strong on our behalf to take back these issues in righteousness and justice. We want to influence and change our culture, not have the culture influence and change us. We trust You, we are dependent on You to restore what has been lost in this nation. Have mercy on us like You have promised.

Psalm 10:16-18 – The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land. LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear: To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.
