Prayer For Salvation of Our Nation

*Pastor’s Note: I wanted something to offer the Lord that we can all get behind for our nation AND for one another.

James 5:16, “Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.” (NASB)

Dearest Most Loving Father, Your Word says that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. God, help us to be a nation that fears You and You alone, a nation that is not afraid to acknowledge that You are the true living God. Help us to stop looking at worldly solutions and to focus on You for our answers. It is only through worshipping You in spirit and in truth that we will be able to have knowledge and understanding about the issues of life that are affecting our nation.

Father, I repent on behalf of this nation. We have become people who are only interested in things that give us temporary pleasure. We no longer fear You, Lord. I ask You to forgive us. Purify this nation with the blood of Jesus Christ, our True Lord and Redeemer. Turn our hearts away from different idols that we have created as a nation and individually. Help us to walk in ways that honor and glorify Your Holy name. Give us leaders that will lead us towards You and Your Word and remove those who would lead us AWAY from You and Your ways.

Lord, you are the ONLY Deliverer, and we pray for our nation and our leaders to turn toward righteousness and away from evil. May we not be labeling what is good as evil, or what is evil as good. You have said that if we seek your face and turn from our evil ways as a nation, You will hear our prayers and answer us. You have taught us to pray for Your will to be done here on earth as it is always done in Heaven.  O Lord, may we individually and as a nation set our focus on obeying Your Word and living pure lives and may we truly desire Your will to be accomplished in us as individuals and as a nation.

In Jesus’ name and by His authority, we pray this fervently and in earnest supplication.

Amen and AMEN!

pp thank you Father
