On this national day of prayer, show God that you grieve for the condition of our country and you sincerely desire its healing.
PLEASE … join in unity with other believers today this National Day of Prayer. If believers bombard Heaven, things can change! If you know anyone specifically that needs prayer, use the comments below and we will deluge Heaven to help them. Open your hearts today and pray!
It is the National Day of Prayer, so I hope and pray that everyone has been petitioning God for their family members, friends, their church, church leaders, America’s leaders and themselves. Also do not forget to pray for our nation itself, which, if you haven’t noticed, is teetering on the brink of an “unholy” war.
Hatred and prejudice against God’s children–and the ungodly attitudes of many in the church against unbelievers–have put this nation on the edge of civil disaster. If you don’t believe that, then pick up a newspaper or watch the news on TV. Therefore we pray:
In the name of Jesus, we pray today for our nation. There is so much division; there is so much hatred and their is so much misunderstanding; and we beg God for forgiveness for our the hardness of hearts. Help us to be tolerant, help us to be patient and help us to convey and live out Jesus’ message of redemption that He paid so dearly for on the Cross. Help us to show non-believers that we belong to Him and not to the world, for our righteous behavior to penetrate their hearts so that they can see Christ and Christ alone.
We pray today for racial division to be wiped away and that people will love others for who they are and not hate for the color of their skin or their nationality. We pray for hatred between religions–including Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, Hinduism and others–to be shattered by the love of the Cross. Satan, you are defeated.
We pray for those who are not in agreement with our views on anything from sexual orientation to abortion, immigration, etc., and for those who do not know Christ as their Savior. We pray that they come to the saving knowledge of Christ not only for their own sake but for the sake of peace and harmony for this nation.
We pray for our president, Donald Trump, that he comes to know you more and more every day and develops your heart. We pray that you guide him to do the things that you want him to accomplish and for him to deny himself and his flesh every day for your sake and the sake of Your Word and this country. We pray this for all of our leaders–national, statewide, and local.
We pray for our churches, that any darkness that has made its way into them be revealed and cast out in Jesus’ name. We pray that hypocrisy will come to light and God’s justice will be done. We pray that you will sear the hearts of all believers to completely surrender to the cross and to Your will and for us to completely deny ourselves and take up our cross and follow you daily. Help us to be salt and light to the world instead of slaves to the culture and hypocrites that can be easily called out.
We love you, Lord. Have Your way in us. Help our lives reflect Your glory. We are confident that You will bring greater things because you are the God of the impossible! In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
“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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chron. 7:14, NIV)
