Prayer Request: Our Country

If our country ever needed prayers, it needs them now. Our law-makers have become law-breakers, and we stand poised to hand over the highest office in the land to a wicked woman whose 40-year history of lawlessness streams out behind her like the tail of a comet.

O Lord Our God, we have sinned against you: we have been cold and indifferent toward you, and ungrateful, and rebellious. For that reason you have raised up wicked and ungodly rulers to chastise us; they have spoiled our country, and led us still more deeply into sin.

Father, save us! Not for our sakes, but for your own great mercy’s sake, as a God who delights in mercy.

Save us, O Lord: not for our sakes, but for your own great glory’s sake: let the world see your power and your might, and tremble.

Save us, O God! Not for our sakes, but for Jesus Christ’s sake, who purchased our redemption with His blood: the only begotten Son of God.

We cannot save ourselves. The enemy is too powerful, too rich, too deeply dug into all the corridors of worldly power. But you brought down Assyria at the height of its glory, and cut off Babylon suddenly: we know you intervene in history.

Save us, Our Father: we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  1. Amazing, Lee, I prayed almost verbatum, this same prayer yesterday and again this morning. All I can say now, is amen, and thank you.
