One Nation Under God- Pray For America

2 Chronicles 7:14 NKJV

14 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.

The chaos in the capital yesterday was heartbreaking. Regardless of my personal feelings on what is happening in congress and our 2020 Presidential elections; I can honestly say this world does not NEED Trump or Biden, although I may have a preference on who would be the better choice the reality is that what this world TRULY needs is Jesus!

The hatred and violence has continues to grow over the years and we are now living as the Divided States instead of the United States. I have no doubt in my mind that the circumstances we are facing today are due to the over abundance of distortion of the truth.

We are living in a world where lawmakers are implementing laws that are contrary to what the Bible tells us is good and righteous. The distorted views that have corrupted our thinking and directed us down a sinful path– claiming what is evil is good and what is good is evil– is coming to a head and our nation is beginning to implode.

Regardless of what party you support or how you feel about the recent election; we need to know that God is still in control. With the perverse laws and downright blasphemy it should come as no surprise that this great nation is reaping what it has sown for many years.

Lawmakers and their supporters have turned our nation away from God and led many astray as they sought to fulfill their own agendas. But we should not fear in these uncertain days ahead, God is bigger than any circumstances we may face. Keep hope and hold on to the promises of God, knowing that one day every head will bow and every tongue will confess that He is God.

Join me in prayer this morning as we cover our nation with the blood of Jesus Christ and claim His promises over our life and circumstances.

Prayer

Heavenly Father,

Lord thank you for giving us the direct line of communication with you through prayer. Thank you for Your promises and for being a God of truth, honor, and justice. We come to You today with a heavy heart, saddened by the happenings yesterday in the capital. Lord this world is so lost and the overall moral compass is broken. Father, the world has misconstrued Your Word over and over again; twisting Your words and changing Your truth to match their needs and feelings. I am so thankful for Your promise to one day return and take all of Your children from this place, for the reason that the son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.

I pray that as the process continues in the capital that You will expose any lies, fraud, or evil intentions. I pray that You would form a hedge of protection around Your people; protect us from the evil one. Lord, help us to remain steadfast in prayer and let us not be overcome by evil but overcome the evil with good. Help us to remain strong in our faith and continue to fight the good fight holding on to Your eternal promises.

Because I am a child of God, I am saved, and Your spirit lives within me; I have all the power and authority over the enemy. I declare that no weapon formed against this nation shall prosper for it is You Lord that fights for us. I declare that the Lord is our light and our salvation, He is in control and the true ruler of our nation and we will not fear. I declare that satan can not have our nation, our freedom, or our constitution. I declare through all of these circumstances that we are more than conquerors through Christ.

Lord I pray for discernment for those in congress, bring the darkness to light and expose the truth. I pray that all of Your children would be self controlled and alert, knowing that the enemy is seeking to devour us. I pray that You would remind us that You have not given us a spirit of fear, that you have commanded us to be strong and courageous for You are with us where ever we go, and that you have armed us with strength for the battle.

Lord I pray that the hearts, eyes, and ears of each person all across the world would be opened to Your truth. I pray that each would feel Your love and peace surrounding them. I pray that they would turn their hearts away from their evil and sinful ways and seek to know You above all else. I pray that we would not lean on our own understanding but rely on God to show us the way.

Thank you God for giving us victory through Jesus Christ and the confidence in knowing that whatever we ask according to Your will– will be done. Thank you for Your promises to work all things for the good to those who love You and for the peace in knowing that You have already won the battle and have overcome the world.

All the glory and praise be to You for the glory of Your kingdom for greater is He who lives in me than he who is in this world. It is not by my might nor my power but Your spirit that Your will be done. In Jesus mighty name I pray.

Amen

  1. Stefanie the blog was so good and the prayer is so perfect for us to pray. Those in congress are really missing this message. I appreciate you praying for not just those we agree with politically but for those that we disagree with. Indeed God told us we should pray for all even those we may disagree with. As children of God, we need to remember who is in control. Not us,but our Lord. Thank you and thank you God for your daily blessings.
