Pray For the United States 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.
Have mercy, O Lord, upon the whole clergy of Your Church in America, and grant them the courage, wisdom, and strength needed to boldly preach Your Word and do Your Will during these perilous times. (Please pray by name for your pastor or priest.)
Grant, O Lord, blessings and mercies to all current and former members of our armed forces. Save them, protect them, and keep them safe. (Please pray by name for any of your family members or friends who serve, or have served, in the armed forces.)
Bless, O Lord, and have mercy on those who serve as police officers, fire fighters, paramedics, and other first responders. Keep them safe as they perform their duties.(Please pray by name for any first responders you know personally.)
