This prayer for America was inside one of my most popular posts from 2016, and it’s still relevant for today. I hope it inspires and blesses you!
We praise you for your perfect knowledge of our hearts and of this country. You hold our country’s future in your hands. We praise you that nothing surprises you; nothing happens outside your foreknowledge, and we can place our trust in your transcendence and sovereignty.
Jesus, no matter what happens today or in the days ahead for America, we pray you will turn our hearts to you. We pray for a new spiritual awakening across our great country. Unite the plans and purposes of your church, that we may serve you and our fellow Americans with love and peace.
We pray for the Christians serving in government, that they will be empowered by your Holy Spirit to be effective witnesses to the elected officials who desperately need your truth and grace. Bless our leaders, Lord. Soften their hearts toward you. Give them the desire to accept your message of salvation and follow you wholeheartedly. Grant them your perfect wisdom in these difficult times.
Holy Spirit, we ask for revived hearts in this nation which grows darker by the day. Empower us to serve as salt and light in our communities. Give us your words so we may reach future generations with your hope, your truth, and your peace.
We turn this day over to you, Lord God Almighty. We choose to put our full trust in you; therefore our minds will be steadfast and kept in perfect peace.
In Jesus’ name,
How is God encouraging you today?
