So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.–Ezekiel 22:30(NKJV)  Don’t let this happen to our land – America. Be willing to “stand in the gap” between God and our country, and #PrayForAmerica.

Prayer For Forgiveness and Repentance of America 

Our Father in heaven, have mercy upon these United States of America, according to Your lovingkindness and tender mercies. Blot out our transgressions, cleanse us of our sins. We acknowledge our transgressions, our many sins against You: We have allowed our God-given liberties to be taken away by our politicians and leaders. We have allowed Your Word and commandments to be banned from our public squares. We have allowed prayer to be eliminated from our schools. We have allowed Your place in our nation’s history to be erased from our textbooks and our minds. We have allowed the epidemics of abortion, pornography, and sexual immorality to fester out of control. We have allowed perversion, decadence, and depravity of all sorts to become public and commonplace.

As a nation, we have replaced the authority and perfection of Your Word with the whim of our own opinions for our standards of right and wrong. We no longer keep Your commandments, or follow Your teachings.

We confess these and all our sins to You and ask forgiveness for ourselves and our nation. Bring us to a state of true repentance – a returning to You – as both individuals and as a nation. We confess Your lordship over every aspect of our lives and our nation. Help us to follow You once again. Restore your mercy and blessings to these United States of America, and re-establish a hedge of protection around us. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ we pray, Amen.

For Our Government Officials  

Save, O Lord, and have mercy upon all leaders, politicians, and civil authorities of these United States of America. I especially hold up to you President Barack Obama, Vice-President Joe Biden, Chief Justice John Roberts, House Speaker Paul Ryan, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. I also pray for all the President’s Cabinet members and advisers,  the associate judges of the Supreme Court, all federal, state, and local judges, all members of the House of Representatives and Senate, as well as all governors, state legislators, and local authorities. Grant them wisdom in their duties and decisions, and have them serve Your Will in all things. Block all of their plots and schemes that run counter to Your good and perfect Will, or that threaten the inalienable rights You have given to us. (Additionally, please feel free to pray by name for any elected officials at any level, especially those with jurisdiction over your locality.)

Pray for the Church and Clergy in America 

Remember, O Lord, Your Church, which You purchased with Your precious blood – protect it, strengthen it, and multiply it. Keep Your Church in peace, and bring to naught all plots and threats against Your Church. Have mercy, O Lord, upon the whole clergy of Your Church in America, and grant them the wisdom, courage, and strength needed to boldly preach Your Word and do Your Will during these perilous times. Have them stand strong for Your Word, and not yield to the pressure of legal threats or political correctness to water-down Your Word. (Please pray by name for your pastor or priest, Sunday School teachers, and others in ministry.)

Pray for Safety of Law Enforcement and Other First Responders 

Watch over, O Lord, and protect all those who serve as law enforcement officers, fire fighters, paramedics, and other first responders. Bless them, have mercy on them, and keep them safe during these dangerous times. Most importantly, Lord, reach out to them, and bring them into a saving relationship with You. For it is in Your name, Jesus, that we pray. Amen. (Please pray by name for any LEOs or other first responders that you know.)

Let my prayer be directed in thy sight as incense, and the [a]lifting up of mine hands as an evening sacrifice. –Psalm 141:2 (1599 Geneva Bible)
Peace,
Todd
