Dear Great and Mighty God of our Fathers, the Creator of all things
We humbly come before you in prayer. We have sinned greatly against you , the earth cries out against us for our violence and bloodshed. We have put vanity, lust and worldly desires before you. Our sins have been great, but we ask that you would look down and see the remnant of those who love you in this country. We ask that you would forgive us and hear our prayers to you O Mighty God.
Forgive us for our pride, our greed, our laziness, our lack of love and for not seeking you out. Forgive us for taking your name away from our children and not teaching them your word.
Lord, bring us back to you, let us be a nation unto the Lord. Protect our nation with years of peace under your Name and your guard over us. Destroy our enemies and crush every plot that comes against us. Raise up leaders who will put your name and your ways back in our lives, our schools and in our government. Heal us and let us see your Glory. Put your words in all our hearts and do not let any evil force steal your word from our heart and mind. Lift up your people, raise up great and mighty leaders strong in the Lord to lead us to live lives that honor you. Just as you brought peace at the time of Solomon, I ask that you would bring our country peace under your name and leadership. Give our President and his advisers great wisdom and discernment in all matters. Raise up good and just judges and lawmakers that love you and honor your name.
Thank you Lord for the blessing of this free country. We live in great luxury, you have blessed us with food, water, shelter and have give us more than we need – I know that all we have and all I have is from your hand. Thank you for the courage and persistence you gave our founders to start this great nation. Thank you for the warriors, our veterans and those fighting for us now. Lord, protect them with your mighty angels, bring them home safely and for all those who have been wounded and/or are suffering mentally and in distress, Lord, In Jesus name I ask they would be healed. Bring your healing hand of power upon each of them and all those who cry out to you. Bring healing to our veterans and bless their lives and their families.
Our president has proclaimed Memorial day a day of Prayer of Permanent peace. Hear our Prayer O Lord that we could have peace. Protect our country and all the nations from terrorist attacks. Lord, stop Islamic terrorists and crush their camps. Do a great and mighty thing in our day as you did in the days of Judges and Kings, that you would send confusion to those planning evil, that you would blind as they go to fight, that you would turn their hearts to know YOU. You desire to see no man perish, but throughout the ages you have shown us how much you love us, even to sacrifice you Only Son, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the World. My prayer is for peace but also for the salvation of every soul.
You, O God, are our refuge, our strength, our protector, our ever present help in times of need.
Thank you for being our God, thank you for hearing our prayer and thank you for this day of prayer that President Trump has proclaimed. Protect President Trump and his family and give him wisdom. Let us come together in unity as one people before you, no longer divided in strife. May love rule our hearts and God rule our country.
God bless our heroes – our service men both here and over seas, God bless our government workers and those who risk their lives daily for the safety of others, God bless our children, God bless our families, God bless our country and God bless President Trump.
In the Precious and Mighty Name of Jesus,
Hear the Word of the Lord:
- But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. Psalm 5:11
- There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved- and there is salvation in no one else. Acts 4:14
- He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him John 1:2
- The king proclaims the Lord’s decree:“The Lord said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father Psalm 2:7
- The Lord said to my Lord,“Sit in the place of honor at my right hand until I humble your enemies, making them a footstool under your feet. Psalm 1:10
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
