Our Father in Heaven,


This day we humble ourselves and ask your forgiveness for our sins against You

alone. We are weak and fallen creatures needing Your divine touch of restoration.

We have engaged in combat against an enemy instead of following your direction

to love one another.

More of us are now awakening to the fact that we are fighting against ourselves.

These are our brothers and sisters with whom we have a momentary disagreement

over an issue or a candidate. Lord, empower us with Your Spirit to fulfill Your will

for each of us.

Forgive us for failing to believe Your Word affirming that You and You alone raise

up kings and remove kings. Forgive us for not trusting Your promise that You

indeed work ALL things together for good for those who love You and are called

according to Your purposes.

Father, bring each of us to our knees with sorrow for offending You. Grace us with

Your Spirit that we may trust again. We live to please you now here on earth and

forever more in Paradise with You face to face.

Bless our patriots, our military and all our families. Bless those now serving in

elected office throughout our land. Bless all of the men and women running for

elected office this year. And grant us Your strength that we may walk worthy before

You and our fellow man; that observers will be compelled to ask, why we are so

different from others in the political marketplace to which You have called everyone

sharing in this prayer.


In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

It is a new year but let's look back to the past for some perspective. Change seems to be the one constant. Over the years we have seen not only changes but actually a revolution in our moral thinking portrayed by our nation. Revolutions have been…Continue

Day 29, 40 Days of Prayer for our Nation

“‘Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.” –Jeremiah 33:6

There is a real wave of discouragement and despondency sweeping through the United States these days. For many, it seems as though our nation is on the path of no return. There is a real concern that we have drifted too far from God and that we might never again see a nationwide spiritual awakening. It certainly is possible for a people to go too far in their rebellion.

Prayer Points

• Make a commitment to pray daily for a spirit of repentance to come upon the church in the United States.

• Thank the Lord that His mercy triumphs over judgment.

• Pray for healing, peace, and security to come to this nation.

My Prayer

Lord, we certainly deserve Your judgment. As a nation, we have sinned against You in virtually every way. We have deliberately tried to remove You from public life. We have squandered wealth, chosen convenience over life, abused the weak, dishonored the poor, and allowed our prejudices and hatreds to divide us. Forgive us! Instead of judgment, pour out Your mercy. We need the healing that only You can provide. Bring again to our nation Your health, Your peace, and Your security.

Day 28, 40 Days of Prayer for our Nation

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” –John 8:32

There is nothing more powerful than a well-told lie. Individuals can find their lives spinning out of control because they believe something untrue about themselves or someone close to them. We’re all aware of how that can happen to a nation when we look back at the propaganda ministry of Nazi Germany and the deception that filled a country. It doesn’t surprise us that Jesus called Satan a liar.

Prayer Points

• Pray for truth to become valued again in American society.

• Pray specifically for truth to be an established standard in our news media.

• Pray for a love for God’s truth to grow in the church.

My Prayer

I thank You, Lord Jesus, that You are the Truth! And it is You, the Truth, that sets men free. Thank You for the freedom we have in You. I thank You that so many of our founding fathers in this nation understood that freedom ultimately is a gift from You and therefore is dependent upon Your truth. Please restore truth to our nation. Help us to quit believing lies. Lord, expose lies! Bring a fresh love for truth to those who report the news. Give discernment to those who watch, listen, or read the news, so that truth might always prevail.

Day 27, 40 Days of Prayer for our Nation

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” –Galatians 5:1

Freedom has a high value in the kingdom of God—not a freedom to do as you please, but, rather, a freedom to please God. That’s important for us to understand as we pray for our nation.

Prayer Points

• Pray for vigilance over any erosion of freedom.

• Thank the Lord for the freedom we have in Christ.

• Pray that we will not again be burdened with the yoke of slavery.

My Prayer

I thank You, Lord, that You have set us free from bondage. I’m so grateful for the freedom we have in Christ. I thank You for the Founders of our nation who built that love and respect for freedom into the core of who we are. Help us, Lord, to be vigilant against the erosion of freedom. Build a love of freedom into our churches and schools and other formative institutions. Give us the courage and boldness to stand firm against those who would take away freedom. May we always be the land of the free.

Day 26, 40 Days of Prayer for our Nation

“Joshua told the people, ‘Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.’” –Joshua 3:5

Who of us would not like to see the Lord do amazing things in our midst? We certainly need that supernatural work of God in our nation today. Israel received that promise; yet, it was a conditional promise. God would do miraculous things if His people consecrated themselves.

Consecration is one of those “church words” that sometimes confuses us. To consecrate is to set apart for a particular purpose.

Prayer Points

• Repent of a lack of consecration and purpose in your life.

• Commit yourself to a life of consecration for the Lord’s purposes.

• Pray for a spirit of consecration and holiness to come upon the church in America.

My Prayer

Father, I am so grieved over my lack of consecration. I have believed and loved You, but I’ve been trying to do Your work in my own strength, and so often for my own purposes. In the name of Jesus, I consecrate myself unto Your purposes. Here I am, Lord. Use me as You will. And what I pray for myself, I pray for Your church. Lord, help us to be holy. Our nation desperately needs a holy people to speak Your Word in these days. Pour out Your Holy Spirit upon us that we might be empowered to be used by You. Lord, we need You to do amazing things in our midst.

Day 25, 40 Days of Prayer for our Nation

“Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.” –Isaiah 1:17

I love the church, so, it isn’t easy for me to say this: Church, our reputation stinks! We are thought of as hypocrites, haters, critics, and irrelevant. Unfortunately, all those descriptive words are accurate. Of course, there are other words I could use to describe what I have seen in the church: love, sacrifice, giving, and compassion, for example.

Prayer Points

• Repent over the poor reputation of the church in our nation.

• Ask the Lord to show you those who are hurting and need you to reach out to them with the love of Jesus.

• Pray for a spirit of compassion to come over the church in the United States so that we will begin seriously to live out the lifestyle of Jesus in our communities.

My Prayer

Lord, forgive us. We have so often made church about us and our needs and wants. In the process we have ignored those who were hurting right down the street from our buildings. Please help us to see people, really see them, as You do. Help us to learn to do right as Isaiah told us. Remake us in Your image, Lord Jesus. You went to those who desperately needed You. May Your compassion well up within us to meet the needs of those around us.

Day 24, 40 Days of Prayer for our Nation

“Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the word of his servant? Let him who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God.” –Isaiah 50:10

The Bible tells us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning place for wisdom. That just might qualify us for being one of the least wise places ever. We don’t talk much about the fear of the Lord, even in our churches. Worse than that, we don’t live in the fear of the Lord.

Prayer Points

• Come before the Lord, confessing that you are one who fears Him.

• Ask Him for the strength of His Holy Spirit to enable you to obey His Word.

• Pray for a fresh wave of the fear of the Lord to fall upon the church in America.

My Prayer

Father, I come before You with fear and trembling. It is because of Your great mercy and love that I fear You. I know You are always right in Your judgments. Help me to be one who obeys Your Word. Enable me through Your Spirit to do what I hear. Help me not to be just a hearer of the Word, but a doer. Lord, our nation needs the moral and spiritual backbone of a people who fear You and obey Your Word. May the fear of the Lord fall upon Your people in our day!

Day 23, 40 Days of Prayer for our Nation

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” –Ephesians 5:11

It seems that most of the serious political scandals have involved cover ups. It wasn’t always the misdeed that was the worst, so much as the lying and manipulation of trying to hide it from the public. Cover ups always try to keep things in darkness, away from the light where people can really see what has happened.

Prayer Points

• Ask the Lord to forgive you for hiding your light.

• Ask the Lord to shine so brightly through you today that others will see Him in all that you do.

• Pray for an explosion of light in the church, bringing transformation to our communities.

My Prayer

Thank You, Light of the World, for coming to live in me. Shine brightly in me today. Forgive me for hiding Your light. Forgive me for the times when I preferred the shadows to the brilliance of Your presence. Shine through Your church in America. Help us to live and to love as You did, so that the darkness in our land will flee and Your light will shine.

Day 22, 40 Days of Prayer, 18 days until election day

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.” –John 14:1

What is troubling your heart today? When the disciples first heard those words, they were worried because Jesus told them He was leaving. That really caused them great anxiety. But Jesus wanted them to trust Him.

So, is there something about our nation that has you worried today? The economy, racial tension, decisions (or indecisions) in Washington, D.C., the terrorist threats? The list could get long. How can we not have troubled hearts?

Prayer Points

• Jesus doesn’t want us to have a troubled heart. Confess what is troubling your heart today.

• Ask Him to help you trust Him.

• Now, in trust, bring the issues of our nation that trouble you and lay them at His feet.

My Prayer

Lord, it is very easy to have a troubled heart as I look at my nation. We are so divided, and it looks like nothing can bridge the growing divide. It seems like daily there are news stories which indicate that we are moving farther and farther away from the standards of Your Word and Your righteousness. No one seems to have the answers we need.

So, Lord Jesus, I turn to You. I trust You. What no political party or individual can do, I believe You can do. Would You step into this situation and bring about Your righteous purposes? I trust You. I choose not to have a troubled heart, but will instead entrust my nation to You.

Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable...We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free. In Jesus' Name, Amen!'

With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One nation under God!'

Day 21 40 Days of Prayer for our Nation:

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” –Hebrews 12:2

We often forget that it was the politics of His day that were the immediate cause of Jesus’ death. The Roman occupation of Israel, coupled with the jockeying for power among several Jewish sects, created a tension that simply couldn’t allow for a popular miracle-working preacher who offended all of the powers that were present. Much of Jesus’ teaching dealt with how to live in such a politically tense situation.  Sometimes, we don't really know how to pray for our Nation.  We sure don't get that at many of our churches these days.

Prayer Points

• Thank the Lord for enduring the cross on our behalf.

• In prayer, fix your eyes on Jesus. Ask Him to show you how to pray for our nation.

• Commit to enduring whatever it takes to see the fulfillment of God’s purposes in our nation.

My Prayer

Lord, today and always I choose to fix my eyes upon You. You lived in a land of political tensions and struggles and overcame, though at a great cost. Teach me how to pray and how to live in the midst of the battles we are facing as a nation. Give me the courage that You had to endure whatever comes in order to please the Father and see His purposes fulfilled.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

The best in books to make every conservative start thinking in new ways about America and the world being controlled by the Obama Administrations AND Republicans and Democrats.  Some surprises are in store for those who look!




Suppose the earth and its inhabitants exist in order to identify just what causes mankind continually to suffer so many troublesome problems and afflictions.
