Prayers For Our Nation

If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.  2 Chronicles 7:14 (ESV)

It is no secret that our nation is more divided than ever.  This is an election year and November will either cement us onto the path we are currently traveling or will set the pendulum swinging in a new direction.  Whatever our fate, we as Christians have a duty to seek God’s will.  There is much we need to take before Him in prayer.  We all need to listen more than we talk.  The following list is only a beginning.  You are invited to add your own reminders of what we need to prayerfully consider and embrace as November approahces.

We pray that You teach us how to prepare our hearts in order that we may seek You and serve You.

We pray that you open our eyes to our own sins and so convict us that we turn and repent.

We pray that we seek truth and use that truth to wage our battles forsaking violence of any kind.

We pray for wisdom and discernment as we prepare to go to the polls.

We pray that You will raise up Godly leaders.

We pray that You give us the wisdom to discern these Godly leaders.

We pray, Dear Lord, that we become a nation of prayer warriors who seek Your face daily.

I request that you all pray for my family. For over thirty years we were Mormon and now most of my family do not attend any church. I have started to attend an Anglican parish and I wish the rest of my family would join me but they carry scars from being with the LDS church. Please pray for them that they can find the Lord and peace, as have I.

Lord, we thank You that we live in a country where we can vote, where we have freedom of speech.  Please help each of us to pray and to listen to Your voice as we vote.  Speak very loudly so that even those not accustomed to hearing You, will make the choice YOU want.  Please give us leaders who will put You and the people first, not themselves or an agenda.  We seek Your face and will here in our country, Lord.  We ask Your forgiveness for the things we have done wrong or not done.  Forgive us and heal our land.  In Jesus’s Name we pray.  Amen.
