A Healing Prayer for America 

Heavenly Father, we 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 cruel and 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. He will return in glory to judge both the living and the dead.

As individuals, we are all sinners. As a people, as a nation, we also have sinned and turned away from You. 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 truly repent - 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 Messiah, we pray. Amen. 

An Additional Prayer

Save, O Lord, and have mercy upon the old, the young, the unborn, the needy and poor, the orphans and widows, the sick, the disabled, the oppressed and the imprisoned. Especially have mercy on those suffering for Your sake. In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, we pray. Amen.

Closing Thought

Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. -- Joshua 1:9
