Patriots' Prayers for 8-5-2018

As I've said often "What is wrong with America goes well beyond politics & economics. It is a spiritual sickness which infects the USA. No politician, no election, no piece of legislation, will cure spiritual sickness. We must appeal to a Higher Authority for that kind of healing." This thought was the foundation to my Patriots' Prayers segment, which I initially started more than four years ago with the following Prayer for America. Please take time this week to join me in praying this prayer. Thank you.

Supporting Verse: "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." --2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)


 Prayer For America (Original Version)

Our Father in heaven, have mercy upon these United States of America, according to Your lovingkindness and tender mercies. Blot out our transgressions, cleanse us of our sins. We acknowledge our transgressions, our many sins against You: We have allowed our God-given liberties to be taken away by our politicians and leaders. We have allowed Your Word and commandments to be banned from our public squares. We have allowed prayer to be eliminated from our schools. We have allowed Your place in our nation’s history to be erased from our textbooks and our minds. We have allowed the epidemics of abortion, pornography, and sexual immorality to fester out of control. We have allowed perversion, decadence, and depravity of all sorts to become public and commonplace.

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 confess these and all our sins to You and ask forgiveness for ourselves and our nation. Bring us to a state of true repentance - a returning to You - as both individuals and as a nation. We confess Your lordship over every aspect of our lives and our nation. Help us to follow You once again. Restore your mercy and blessings to these United States of America, and re-establish a hedge of protection around us. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ we pray, Amen.


Additional Prayers for This Week
  • Grant, O Lord, blessings and mercies to all current members of our armed forces. Protect them and keep them safe. Likewise, bless and have mercy on our veterans. Watch over them and provide for their needs.
  • Bless, O Lord, and have mercy on those who serve as police officers, fire fighters, paramedics, and other first responders. Watch over them, protect them and give them wisdom, courage, and strength in their duties.
  • Remember, O Lord, and have mercy upon the whole clergy of Your Church in America and abroad. Grant them the wisdom and courage needed to boldly preach Your Word and to do Your will during these perilous times.
  • 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 our Lord, Our Savior, and our God, Jesus the Messiah, we pray these and all prayers. Amen.
