Dear Father, we come to You in the mighty name of Jesus, thanking You and praising You for our great nation. We thank You for the plan You gave to our forefathers by which to govern our nation and for the division of powers so that our destiny does not rest in the hands of one person.
Dear Father, in Jesus’ name we lift up our president to You. We know that our leader’s heart is in Your hand, so we ask You to guide the head of our nation in the way You would have him to go.
In praying for those in authority, we lift up our Congress and pray that by Your power, our legislative body would make laws that are just. Father, give them wisdom to make decisions that would strengthen and prosper our nation.
We pray for our nation’s economy and that You, Father, would raise up people of skill and wisdom. Give them inspired ideas. And Father, as the people of our nation continue to finance the preaching of the gospel and help the poor, we pray that You would continue to prosper us.
Father, we also pray for all involved in law enforcement. We pray that You would give them wisdom, protection and the grace to do their jobs effectively.
We thank You, Lord, for the men and women in our armed forces. Protect and defend them as they protect and defend us.
Father, we pray in Jesus’ name that You would restore a social conscience to our nation. We pray that we would again see the value of teaching our children the virtue of being good citizens, to not only live for the good of the individual but for the good of others as well.
Dear Father, we desire to see our nation restored to godly integrity and excellence, so that our children and our citizens can be proud of their nation and proud to be called citizens of it.
In the name of Jesus, we pray that You would raise up a voice in our nation that would rally the Body of Christ and cause us to become standard bearers to such a degree that we would profoundly affect the morality of our nation.
In recognizing our duty to God and our country, keep us mindful to pray for our nation, not only in our churches and our homes, but also in the quietness of our daily lives. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
