Prayer for the Nation

Digital Camera

The thief [Satan] comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.  ~   John 10:10 

 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.  ~ Job 22:28

        Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?         ~  Hebrews 1:14

Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.  ~ Psalm 103:20

Father, on this national day set aside for prayer, let us join our hearts and the words of our mouth with You and Your Word.   We lift our nation before Your Throne of Grace in repentance for any way we have not put our trust in You…

You told us You came to give us abundant life. You command us to speak that LIFE into the world in Your Name.  You promise when we decree a thing, it shall be established… and YOU will shine your light upon our ways.

You send your ministering angels to move on our behalf and hearken to the voice of Your word in our mouths.  That means they are waiting for us to speak out Your Truth over our nation and the world  — so they can put it into effect!  To stop speaking out dread and fear and worry.  To speak Your Word of faith!

Today, and every day… let us not give the thief one inch by sinking into depression, confirming his lies to ourselves by confessing falsely, “what’s the use, what will be will be.” Or giving into thoughts that our vote doesn’t count.  No, You have said, what we decree in Your Name will be.

Let us take Your command to heart as our banner and wave it high – Do not fear.  Our God reigns.  You restore and heal the land in your dunamis power, the same power You used to resurrect the Lord, as we lift ourselves before Your throne of Grace in repentance for giving in to fear.

We will not look at how things may appear, but keep our eyes looking up to You and how You move on our behalf when we stand in praise and sing Your light over all.   [2 Chronicles 20]

And so we decree in Your Name:

  • Your Name is above all Names…
  • You reign here, in our elections, in our lives, in our leaders. 
  • You reign in America, Israel and all the world.
  • You turn the hearts of the kings to Your Light.
  • You will never abandon us to the one who wants to steal, kill and destroy.
  • You are pouring out Your Spirit on us and turning the nations to choose Life and Light and Healing.
  • You establish Your people in places of high position to lead the land in Your ways.
  • Your manifest Glory and Presence reign in every neighborhood, city, state of this nation and in the elections. 
  • Our eyes are on You Lord.  For you have said…

 You have seen well, for I am alert and active,

watching over My word to perform it.

~ Jeremiah 1:12

Lord, we choose to keep Your Word in our mouths and hearts.  When fear and doubt and worry come, we take those thoughts captive in Your Name and declare You as banner over our lives, our families, our nation.

Today… send Your angels to hearken to these words of Your word in our mouths to perform it!

And in the same way… we join our hearts with all those in prayer today and lift up Israel to Your Blessing, O Lord.  No longer will YOUR people sleep in the Light.   For what is on Your Heart is on ours.  Your Word is our word.   As Your People, as a nation, we will turn again now to bless them in Your Name.  For You have said of this land of Your heart,

  I will bless those who bless you,
    and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
    will be blessed through you.

~  Genesis 12:3

    Amen. That our individual hearts be set upon Him and from one there go many who are touched by each one.

    Oh my goodness. I/we needed to hear this. Shout it from the rooftops pam. God bless you for always sharing truth and being a beacon of His light and courage in darkness!
    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Thank you, Lynn. I wasn’t going to post this, but the Lord kept impressing me with it as I walked my neighborhood today… We have to keep reminding ourselves of this daily… and the saying, when good men do nothing… For us, doing nothing is giving up…

  3. Amen!!!

    Shared this with my online prayer group. Thank you xo

  4. Thank you for this. I’m afraid the National Day of Prayer got lost in the shuffle this year, so I appreciate your emphasis here.

  5. Amen! Pam, so much truth written in your beautiful prayer! We must stop wringing our hands and trusting our God. I’ve quit watching the news and giving it all to Him. He is on the throne! Thanks so much for adding this to Faith ‘n Friends Blog Hop. God bless you!

    We as a nation are in need of heavy prayer right now. So many uncertainties in so many areas. It can be very hard to trust in some of what’s going on and know God’s hand is in it.

    • So true… I do think that God depends on us as His church and Bride to stand in an onslaught of prayer and worship (and repentant spirit), opening the door to His moving in greater ways than we know about. Even to the point of protecting against things we don’t realize He’s protected us against. And that verse about “If my people…” seems so true… God’s hand is not in the evil, but He will certainly move in our behalf to turn things around as we stand in prayer in the authority He gave us in His name. I think we need to remind ourselves how God is not shocked or wringing His hands…and wants to restore more than we want it sometimes… I was just reading about how God asked Abraham to intercede for the land, and Abraham asked if he would spare it for this many, for that many. I always interpreted that as just Abraham asking, but now I think that was God, wanting to save and to move through Abraham, His own, interceding. Thanks for sharing your heart, Michelle…

    Fabulous prayer for our nation that seems to have lost her voice and way. May God hear all our prayers! Thank you for sharing these beautiful words!

    • Thank you, Carrie. I think there is one who would like us to believe that things are hopeless. But I believe God made a covenant with our forefathers and our nation is very precious in His sight. He will not and has not given up on us, and we need to stand in faith for all He is doing that we don’t even know about to renew and restore… Let us keep this prayer and more in our hearts! Blessings to you today!
