PRAYING FOR GOD’S MERCY AND PEACE ACROSS OUR NATION:
SCRIPTURES: Leviticus 26:6a “And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid…”
Psalm 29:11 The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.
Numbers 6: 24–26 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: 25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: 26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
Isaiah 32:17-18 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. 18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;
Jeremiah 29:11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
THOUGHT: As you have joined with many others in repentance and prayer for the soul of America we now expect to see a movement of the hand of God. Only God can change the direction of this nation as we continue to participate by repenting and renouncing the sin that has taken hold.
We call on the LORD God, who is the only one who can do a work to turn this nation to righteousness and to bring this nation back to peace and harmony.
PRAYER: LORD, we repent for and renounce our sins, the sins of our families, the sins of our leaders and the sins of our nation. We ask in faith for Your mercy and forgiveness. LORD, this nation needs a new direction, or better, to return to its old direction in covenant relationship with You. LORD, please forgive us and restore us. We cry out to You as the only hope for this nation. In the Name of Jesus.
Turn us around LORD, that we as a nation turn back to the source from which we came. Let it be a Sovereign work of Your own hand to turn this nation around. In Jesus’ Name. AMEN!
