LET US PRAY FOR AMERICA- Part 2


 
Lord, You said that Your Word is everlasting and it does not return to You void, so I ask today that You would heal the wounds of the survivors of the attack on the World Trade Center, their families, friends, those whose loved ones perished, the firefighters who rushed to their rescue, the members of the armed forces who work tirelessly to keep order and peace, the doctors and nurses who provided care and comfort and for every person who helped in one way or another. I ask for your continued intervention and direction as America works through the process of making sense out of such nonsense and to bring stability and a sense of security back to the country.

Jeremiah 17:9 tells us that: The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? We know that You God is the only one Who knows the heart of man and is able to change it, so I ask you to change the heart of every terroist and give them Your love, peace and grace.

 I pray that the strongholds and generational curses of murder and massacre will be broken from these criminal minded people who have no hope and take pleasure in destroying other human beings. Exposed every evil plan of the enemy and throw him into confusion.  Watch over our armed forces and others providing protective services and give them strength, wisdom and alertness so that they will act swiftly, powerfully and accurately at all times.

I pray that the leaders, starting with the President, the Executive Branch, members of congress, federal agencies, commissions and governments, local, state and regional of this country, will seek godly wisdom daily as they plan and make decisions to run the affairs of this country. Continue to pour out your wisdom and discernment to the intelligence and international security agencies.

In Jeremiah 33:3 you said if we call on You, You will answer, and in John 14:13 -14 You said that whatever we ask for in Your Name and according to You will, you will do it. So, in closing, Lord, I ask that you heal, restore and bless America. I believe that today you have heard my prayer and supplication on behalf of the United States of America. I give You honor, Glory and praise! In name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.

LET US PRAY FOR AMERICA- Part 1


Part 1

Dear heavenly, as I humble myself before you and submit to Your will and authority. I thank You for another blessed day in America and for Your protective hand that shields this country and other countries of the world every day. Thank You for Your mercy, peace and grace.   Today is the 11th Anniversary of the awful tragedy that took place in New York City on September 11, 2001. That is a memory that has been etched in the very heart, mind and fabric of every American and people across the miles in all the nations of the earth who felt the effect of this tragedy.

That was a dark day in America, but in the midst of such darkness, Your light shone through very brightly as we froze in amazement and awe of this criminal act that was masterminded as a result of hatred, jealousy, and heartlessness. Many have asked; how this could happen to a country that possessed such power and why did You permit this to happen, Lord. Nevertheless, we know that You are ultimately in control and all things work together for those who love you and are called according to your purpose (Romans 8:28).

Thank You for the most significant good that resulted from this- America became united for a short while. Today, I pray that the sense of unity that we experienced in America on September 11, 2011 will one day become a reality. May there be many prayers for the families of the victims, for this country and all the countries of the world to be protected from terrorism. I also pray that America and the world at large will strive to live in unity and the peace of God, not only in times of tragedy, but at all times.

As I bow in prayer this morning for America, I am reminded that this country was founded on Your Word, principles and laws, but the god of this world has deceived Your people, and have turned their hearts and minds away from You. Please forgive them Lord and remove the darkness from them so that Your light may shine through and saturate their being. You have said in You word in 2 Chronicles 7:14:

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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Thank You for that promise, in the name of Your son Jesus.
