Prayer: Week of August 17, 2015

Bro. Tim Gamble is sharing a great weekly prayer.  Tim puts out some great preparedness content and I am grateful that he has allowed me to share his weekly prayer here.  You can find Tim’s preparedness articles by clicking here.

What is wrong with America goes well beyond politics & economics. It is a spiritual sickness which infects the USA. No politician, no election, no piece of legislation, will cure spiritual sickness. We must appeal to a Higher Authority for that kind of healing. Patriots’ Prayers is an ongoing feature appearing each Sunday. Please join me in praying for America.

1) Please continue to pray the Prayer For Forgiveness and Repentance of the United States

Save and protect, O Lord, these United States of America and have mercy on us. As a nation, we have turned our backs on you and have sinned. We have allowed our God-given liberties to be taken away. We have allowed the epidemic of abortion to fester out of control. We have allowed prayer to be eliminated from our schools, and Your Word and commandments to be banned from our public squares. We have allowed Your place in our nation’s history to be erased from our textbooks and our minds. We have turned our backs on Your teachings. We no longer look to You and Your Word for our standards of right and wrong, replacing those absolute truths with the whim of our own opinions.  We have allowed decadence and depravity of all sorts to become public and commonplace. Common decency has become a thing of the past. 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.

Supporting Verse: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 will forgive their sin and heal their land.” –2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)

Don’t let that happen to America. Be willing to “stand in the gap” on behalf of our land. Pray for America!

    Please bring for revival in your people, O Lord. Help us to understand that our hope is in You, not in government, economies, or any other thing in this world. Thank You for sending Your Son as an atonement for our many sins; the only way we can be washed white as snow.
