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)

This Week’s Patriots’ Prayer

Heavenly Father, save and protect these United States of America and have mercy on us. Grant us Your forgiveness, and treat us not as we deserve, but according to your loving-kindness. As a nation, we have turned our backs on you and have sinned. As a nation, as a people, 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. Yet, our wisdom is but folly if it isn’t rooted in You. Worldly wisdom is no more than whim and opinion, ever-changing with the trends and fashions of the times. Forgive us for our folly, and help us to repent and turn back to You and Your Word as our standard of Truth.

Help us, O Lord, to seek Your wisdom, and to keep Your commandments. Help us to no longer compromise with the world, but to stand firm on Your absolute truths. Help us to truly make the prayer of the psalmist* our prayer:

“Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart! They also do no iniquity; they walk in His ways. You have commanded us To keep Your precepts diligently. Oh, that my ways were directed to keep Your statutes! Then I would not be ashamed, when I look into all Your commandments. I will praise You with uprightness of heart, when I learn Your righteous judgments. I will keep Your statutes. Oh, do not forsake me utterly! Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.”

“You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies; For they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers, for Your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Your precepts. I have restrained my feet from every evil way, that I may keep Your word.”

In the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.

*The third paragraph is from Psalm 119: 1-7. The fourth paragraph is from Psalm 119: 98-101. At some point this week, you may want to take some time to read Psalm 119 in its entirety (it is the longest chapter in the Bible!).

NOTE: This week I am initiating a slight change in Patriots’ Prayers. The weekly prayer, which changes each week, will continue to be posted as usual. The other “fixed” prayers, which typically don’t change each week, will be kept on the Prayer Page of my website. Just click the link to go to the Prayer page to pray those prayers. Please feel free to print a copy of those prayers to use each week, if you wish.
