Prayer for the United States of America

BD162F4E-A123-479A-8B11-C37C740D9276

“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all….” 1 Timothy 2:1-6 NKJV

So we come to God in thanks for our President and all others in places of authority–God grant them wisdom, cooperation, and protection in these times. We especially pray for any who don’t know the Lord in a personal way, to come into the knowledge of Him.

Father,

Our fervent prayer today is for our country, the beautiful U.S.A.
The news reports regarding it have been very dark each day.

The rioting and looting are a war on those police who are good.
We ask for continued courage for them as they serve in every neighborhood.

We pray for their protection–through the covering of Psalm 91,
as well as for every American, who is someone’s mother, father, daughter, or son.

We’re seeing that due to lawlessness, more people have been hurt or have died.
It’s only our prayers and looking to You that can stop this dangerous tide.

We ask You for restored law and order, for without it, no one can thrive.
We know Your Word has said there are demonic forces with which we strive.

Yes, wrongs have happened in America, and those things must be addressed.
But help people to pray and to work together, in a way that keeps us blessed.

The devil would seek to divide, while You, Lord, want people to unite.
We thank You for an awakening to love…through Jesus, this world’s light.

In Jesus’ name, we, your people, pray

Amen

“…’Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of Hosts.”
Zechariah 4:6
