O Father, I pray that America will return to You.
I pray for my country, my family, myself. Judgment and punishment are at our doorstep, and our only hope is to return to You.
Help us return to You to acknowledge and praise You! Reveal the wickedness and godlessness that has led us so far astray from the godly, moral values we were founded on.
Father, as in Jude’s time, many men have “slipped in among us” to lead us away from You. In Jude’s words, “godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny You” as Sovereign and Lord. Jude 1:4
I believe this has happened in America. And we have fallen for their deceptions. They claim a righteousness, but it is not Yours. They divide even the faithful – like wolves wearing sheep’s clothing.
Show me how to see these people, these philosophies for what they really are, and not be misled by them.
I see what Hosea recognized: “Hear the word of the Lord, America, because the Lord has a charge to bring against you who live in the land: ‘There is no faithfulness, no love, no acknowledgment of God in the land. There is only cursing, lying and murder, stealing and adultery; they break all bounds, and bloodshed follows bloodshed.’” Hosea 4:1-2
Solomon also knew the people well. Even as You inhabited the Temple, and Your Glory shone all around, he knew Your people would turn away from You. He prayed for Your forgiveness and mercy, and You answered with a promise we can claim today.
“If My people, who are called by My Name, will 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 will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
Father, I humble myself before You. I have not measured up in so many ways. I do not deserve the blessings You pour out on me. Show me where there is wickedness in my life: my words, my actions, my attitude.
Forgive me when I have spoken but should have held my tongue. Forgive me when I held my tongue but should have spoken.
Forgive me when I have acted and should not have, or should have acted, and did not.
I have allowed fear to dictate when I was willing to stand up for You when it was easier not to. I have allowed my comfort to set the limits of my generosity when it comes to giving of my time and talents and treasure.
Lord I seek Your face to bring a spiritual awakening and revival upon my country. Renew the Biblical values this country was founded on. Let Your people once again know Your presence, Your power and Your blessing. And not accept politicians any longer who offer counterfeit blessings!
Father, bring America together in unity, across boundaries of race, politics, faith, status, income. Help us join together to seek the common good and Your direction for our lives and our country.
Oh Lord, hear and act! For Your sake, my God, do not delay. Let this vote be a turning point in America’s people waking up to the lies and deception of politics, and turn back to You! Amen
