This country is going to sin faster than you can blink an eye. There’s nudity all over the place, violence and rioting, and children being raised without Christian, parental authority. Individuals turn to the police for help and the government for a solution. Why is it we don’t turn to the one who can actually fix things?
Even Jesus prayed to His Father in Luke 6:12. One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. If Jesus, who made blind men see and dead men come alive prayed, why don’t we?
The best thing for this country right now is prayer from all faithful followers of Jesus Christ. We must bring this country back to God or it will eventually crumble.
Below is a prayer I’ve written to guide you. Feel free to use it or come up with something of your own. I just know we need to pray for this country now.
A Prayer for God’s Return
At one time this country recognized You as the supreme being. We believed in the saying “one nation under God” without question.
We must now confess that we have allowed Satan to come into this land and take over our schools and our governments. We have forgotten the blessings You have bestowed upon us, not just as individuals, but as a nation as well. We have given into the world’s sinful ways, Lord. We’ve taken Your word out of our schools and our government. We’ve allowed movies and books to cast distain upon Your wonderful name and let the media destroy Your followers under the guise of tolerance.
Father, we humble ourselves before You as a nation. We confess our sins and ask for Your grace, mercy, and forgiveness. We pray You restore this country to its former glory where we were truly a nation of believers and doers in Your name. We pray for elected officials to be put into office whose hearts follow You. Give us leaders who will guide us forward as a nation under God. Those who truly walk the walk and not just talk the talk.
We pray for decisions coming out of the government, our schools, and our Supreme Court. We pray that any decision is Yours, not ours. We pray that every Christian in this country stands up for what is Godlike, not what is politically correct, and to support businesses and people in the media who are Christian, while turning away those who are not.
Please God, protect this country from those who would like to destroy it from the inside out. Let us feel Your presence near us every day. And let those who are true followers step forward and show others what a true Christian looks like.
In Jesus most precious name,
If you or someone you know are in need of prayer this week, please let us know. We’d be more than happy to pray for you.
And if this post moved you in some way, please feel free to share it.
