A Healing Prayer for America
Our Father in Heaven, have mercy upon these United States of America. 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 of all types to fester out of control. We have allowed perversion, decadence, and depravity of all sorts to become public, commonplace, and even celebrated.
As a nation, we have replaced the authority and perfection of Your Word and Your Law 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. We acknowledge that we are unworthy of forgiveness on our own merits, therefore we put our trust in Messiah for our forgiveness.
Father, we realize that admitting our sins and asking for forgiveness must also be accompanied by true repentance – actually turning away from our sins, our Lawlessness, and turning towards You and Your Law. We ask that you write your commandments upon our hearts, and enable us, broken as we are, to follow them. Forgive us when we stumble, and help us to our feet once again, so that we can walk in Your ways.
Father, we confess Your authority 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 Yeshua's name we ask these things, Amen.
