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 heal their land. (II Chronicles 7:14 NKJV)
On this day of remembrance, let us join our faith together to pray for our country and her leaders.
Lord, we give You thanks, praise, glory, and honor, for You are our God. You are the great I AM, the King of kings, and Lord of lords. We bless You and praise You.
Give wisdom, revelation, and understanding to our country’s leaders. We praise You for providing us with leaders who have a relationship of prayer with you. Reveal the mind of Christ to them. Grant them the spirit of David and the wisdom of Solomon.
We lift our country up to You. This country was founded upon Your Word, the Bible, and today we are calling our country back to You and Your Word―back to prayer and repentance.
Father, our country needs Your mercy. We need Your forgiveness. We need Your healing. We claim Your power to heal our nation. You are a big and mighty God, able to do beyond all that we can ask or even think.
Let the nation become the beacon You meant it to be, so that the light of the Gospel will shine forth and reach the uttermost bounds of the earth. May Your people be called to a new sense of prayer and commitment; unified as we look to You as our Source of help and strength. In Jesus’ precious name we pray. Amen.
