Dear Church Family
We continue to pray for our nation. Today and over the next few days, you can follow these prayer suggestions and prayers along with prayers for the health of our President and those in government who have been affected by Covid-19. Let us also remember the 205,000 plus families who have lost someone at their table or network to this pandemic. Blessings on your effort to keep prayer as the center for this season.
Thank the Lord for His promise of protection for the servants of the Lord. Ask the Lord to raise up a shield of protection over our nation. In the name of Jesus, resist the Enemy’s attacks on the godly foundation of the United States.
Father, Your promises are always sure. Thank You that You give Your servants the privilege of walking in victory and refuting every word spoken against us. Now, Lord, help us in wisdom to do this on behalf of our nation. Lord, awaken Your people out of apathy and help us to stand against the attacks of Satan against our nation. Forgive us for our passivity. May no weapon of the Enemy prevail against our nation, but may every one of those weapons come to naught against our Shield and Deliverer!
Ask the Lord to reveal clearly to you where your treasure is. Pray for your heart to be clearly focused on the Lord. In Jesus’ name, tear down the idol of mammon (money) that has taken up residence in America today.
Lord Jesus, You spoke so often about money and the danger it can represent to us. Yet, You also used the wealth of the rich to accomplish Your mission. Help us to walk in that biblical understanding of both the danger and blessing of money. Forgive us for making an idol out of money or material things. Especially, Lord, forgive us when such idolatry happens in Your church. Help us to live lives that are free from greed and coveting, that we might be a prophetic voice to our nation. May we become a nation that treasures You far more than we treasure gold.
Ask the Lord to fill you with His peace. Pray that you will be a person who brings the peace of Christ into the lives of others. Pray that the church in America will live in such a way that the peace of Christ comes into the councils of our nation.
Forgive me, Lord, when I walk in anxiety and stress, failing to allow Your peace to rule in my life. Breathe Your peace into my heart. Help me to bring that peace with me into every situation I face. Lord, may Your peace so pervade Your church in America that it begins to mark us as a nation. We understand that we live in a time of troubles. You told us it would be that way. Help us in a miraculous way to experience Your peace in the midst of trouble.
Ask the Lord to help you learn to wait on Him. Pray for the church in America to begin to model the stable lifestyle of waiting on the Lord. Pray for a movement of the Spirit that creates a dramatic cultural transformation in the United States, bringing about a nation that has learned to put its hope in the Word of God.
Lord, it isn’t easy to wait. There are so many things to do. Forgive me for not waiting on You and running ahead to do those things that seemed good to me. Teach Your church to be a good model of those who do not rush into every trend or fashion but who have learned to wait upon You. Lord, show us how waiting on You is not inactivity but an active lifestyle of drawing near and of keeping our eyes upon You. May You so transform Your church that it flows over into the life of this nation. Slow us down, Lord. Teach us to wait on You, so that Your purposes and plans might be lived out in America.
