Prayer for our Nation

Prayer for our nationThe Sword of the Spirit is the Word of God. Jesus used this spiritual weapon when tempted by Satan in the desert. Each time Satan attempted to deliver a blow, Jesus blocked the attack with the Word of God by quoting scripture.

 Praying the Word is using your Sword and defeating the enemy! Let’s take up our Sword and wield it over our nation….

“Heavenly Father, I give thanks for our government (1 Timothy 2:1). I pray for all men and women having authority over us in any way (1 Timothy 2:2). Pour out Your Spirit upon them and make Your Word known to them (Proverbs 1:23). Cause them to be men and women of integrity, obedient concerning us (Psalm 25:21), that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, in all godliness and honesty (1 Timothy 2:2). Let wisdom enter their hearts, and let knowledge be pleasant to them (Proverbs 2:10). Let discretion preserve them and understanding keep them (Proverbs 2:11), to deliver them from the way of evil and from evil men (Proverbs 2:12). Make their hearts and ears attentive to godly counsel (Psalm 1:1), doing what is right in your sight (2 Chronicles 20:32). Let the upright dwell in our government (Proverbs 2:21). Cause there to be a shaking in all areas. Let those complete and blameless before You stay (Hebrews 12:27), and cut off the wicked. Let the unfaithful be rooted out (Proverbs 2:22). Bring to light what is hidden in darkness (1 Corinthians 4:5), and expose the secret aims of the hearts (1 Corinthians 4:5). Let this nation remember from where they have fallen, repenting, and returning to doing their first works (Revelation 2:5), setting their hearts and their souls to seek the Lord (1 Chronicles 22:19), humbling themselves, praying, and turning from their wicked ways. Then hear them, Lord, and forgive their sins and heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14). Open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light (Acts 26:18). Soften the hearts that are hardened through the deceitfulness of sin (Hebrews 3:13). Deliver them from their destructions (Psalm 107:20). Father, You have been longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). Raise up a standard in this nation (Isaiah 49:22). Cause the rains of Your Spirit to flood this land (Zechariah 10:1), and revive Your work in the midst of us (Habakkuk 3:2). Raise up intercessors for this nation (Isaiah 59:16), to pull down strongholds over this land (2 Corinthians 10:4). And let the glory of the Lord be revealed (Isaiah 40:5)!”
