Prayers for Our Nation

There is power when people unite and pray. Please join us in prayer for our nation so God can forgive our sins and heal our land. Second Chronicles 7: 14 says: 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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.


Prayer for Our Nation

Heavenly Father, I thank You for blessing the United States of America and extending Your grace and mercy towards us. Thank You for protecting all of our borders and exposing evil plans against our country. Father, forgive us as a nation for our many sins. Have mercy upon us and help us to continue to follow after You. Forgive us for not representing Your Kingdom to the world. Expose every hidden scheme of terrorism before any destruction occurs and dismantle their evil plans formed against us. Father, I trust You to continue to surround our nation and our allies with Your favor. Let Your hand move upon our land in power, glory and might.


Prayer for Our Nation’s Government

 Father, in the Name of Jesus and by the power of His blood, I bring the needs of our government before You. I magnify the Name of Jesus and declare that He is Lord over the United States of America, and I release Your will over our government.

 Lord, in the Name of Jesus, I ask You to bless our nation through godly leaders. I pray according to 1 Timothy 2:1-3 which says, I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.

Father, I pray that our government leaders realize their personal inadequacy to fulfill their tasks and that they depend upon You for wisdom, knowledge, and the courage to do what is right. I pray that Your Power and Glory will flow through their lives, in Jesus’ Name.

Prayer for Our Government Leaders

Father, in the Name of Jesus, I ask that You pour out Your Spirit upon our Congressional Leaders. I pray that they act and lead according to Your Word. Bring a healing of rifts between the Republicans and the Democrats. Cause a softening to begin and a dissolving of the great divides so that our President, the Senate and Congress will begin to work together across their differences and across the issues. Bring within the walls of Congress and the Senate a spirit of reconciliation and cause the walls of division to fall. Father, a house divided against itself cannot stand; therefore, I pray for them to be unified in righteousness for the sake of the nation, in Jesus’ Name.

Father, because Your Word says that when the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice (Proverbs 29:2), remove those national leaders who oppose Your will and replace them with the ones You have chosen and appointed by Your own hand.


Prayer for Our Judicial System

Father, in Jesus’ Name, I pray that our appointed Justices of the Supreme Court will render decisions according to Your laws. I pray that all ungodly laws will be reversed or removed. I pray that any judge who attempts to corrupt our system of justice be removed and replaced with one who honors Your Word and Laws. Father, as our Justices make their decisions, I pray that their decrees are in accordance with Your Will. Help them set a standard of justice and balance for the judicial office at large, not only on a national level, but for every adjudicator in our nation.


Prayer for Our President

Father, in the name of Jesus, I ask You to restore dignity, honor, and righteousness to the office of the Presidency. I thank You, Father, that the President’s heart is in Your hands as the rivers of water, and You turn it wherever You will, and I know Your will is righteousness (Proverbs 21:1).

Lord, I pray that our President will not rely on his own understanding, but in all his ways acknowledge You, and You will direct his path (Proverbs 3:5-6). Bring to him men and women after Your own heart who will speak to him of things that hold great weight with You. Send Your prophets to speak a word to our President in season concerning Your people, Israel. Cause him to think deeply on these things and ponder them in his heart.

Father, pour out Your wisdom in the night hours upon the President and cause him to hear Your voice saying, “This is the way, walk ye in it.” Grant him wisdom concerning our nation’s economic issues and the Middle East. Put a new mantle of wisdom, power and strength upon our President, in Jesus’ Name.

Father, in Jesus’ Name I ask You to surround our President and his family with Your hedge of protection. Put Your angels in charge over them. Protect them from all harm and all evil intentions. Bless their coming in and their going out. Father, let all our President’s enemies be scattered, and let those who deal falsely towards him be exposed. Grant our President success in all his endeavors and renew his strength and spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
