Day 2: July 5th - Our Nation
a Prayer for our Nation
Lord we pray for our nation and ask that You would look down on us in pity and mercy. Forgive us for the way that we have turned our backs on You in so many ways and bring us back as a people who seek to follow the ways of justice and peace.
Keep our land free from war and aggressions – from winds and earthquakes – from fear and confusion and from other things that can cause hurt and fear and confusion.. and may we as a nation turn to You and call out to You in the day of trouble.
Be close to all our leaders and governors and give them wisdom and discernment as they rule this nation and I pray that the decisions that they make may be wise – and Lord that our nation would turn to You for Your wisdom and Your strength.
Be with all those that are oppressed and downtrodden and especially those that do not know You as their Saviour – may there be many that come to know You as their saviour in this my country. We pray that the gospel may one day be preached in this land from shore to shore - openly and truthfully, and keep us from compromising Your word of truth. Restore to this nation the joy of Your salvation and bring many to a faith in the Lord Jesus as Savior we pray...
– in His name, Amen
Prayer for our Country
Loving Father, I thank You that I have been privileged to grow up in this country and although many of our standards are being eroded I thank You that for so long we have enjoyed the liberty and blessings we have received from Your hand in this land.
Thank You for the for my country Lord, and for my family and friends and the freedom that we have enjoyed up to now… Keep Your hand on this my nation and give our leaders wisdom to see Your ways and to look to You for the direction that we, as a nation, need to go. But also Lord help me to hold to the things of this world lightly, knowing that my true citizenship is in heaven.. as part of Your heavenly kingdom.
Provide for those that are in need, feed those that are hungry, comfort those that are sorrowing, heal those that are sick and bring those that do not know You as their Saviour into a close and personal walk with Yourself, I pray – in Jesus name,
