A Healing Prayer for America
Heavenly Father, thank you for Your enduring love. A love so great that You sent Your only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. Jesus died a violent death to pay the penalty for our sins, to free us from the powers of darkness. On the third day, He rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and sits at Your right hand.
As individuals, we are all sinners. As a people, as a nation, we also have sinned and turned away from You. As a nation, we have replaced the authority and perfection of Your Word with the whim of our own opinions for our standards of right and wrong. We no longer keep Your commandments, or follow Your teachings.
We come before You now to place all our sins upon the cross of Jesus, and ask to be washed clean by His precious blood. Forgive us, and help us to turn back to You as our Lord, our Standard, our Authority. We confess Your lordship over every aspect of our lives and our nation. Help us to turn back to You, and follow Your ways once again.
In the Name of our Savior, Jesus the Christ, we pray. Amen.
Please read the Word of God this week!
Reading the Bible on a regular basis is something everyone needs to do. Not just occasionally. Not just once a week. Daily reading of God's Word is essential for building solid relationship with our Father in Heaven. If you are not doing so already, please make daily Bible reading a part of your life. There are dozens, if not hundreds or more, Bible reading plans you can follow. Your Bible may contain a daily reading plan. Several others can be found at the Bible Gateway website. Ask your pastor or priest for one. I will also start listing suggested readings each week as part of Patriot's Prayers. Or simply design your own reading plan, as random or as organized as you wish. Whatever plan you choose, please start reading the bible every single day.
