Psalm 85:10-12

Love and truth belong to God’s people; goodness and peace will be theirs. On earth people will be loyal to God, and God’s goodness will shine down from heaven. The Lord will give his goodness, and the land will give its crops.”

 Mighty God,

You have been so good to this nation. We have prospered greatly because of Your love and grace. But we have also sinned and turned away from You. Guide us back to You and fill us with Your goodness so that others will see You and turn to You as well. Remind us that we are to follow You alone and place You first in our lives. Then Lord, rain down your prosperity on this nation and help us share from the bounty You have blessed us with.

Amen.

Proverbs 28:2

When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but with a man of understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue.”

 

Father God,

We have sinned greatly as a nation and dishonored You in so many ways. We have listened to those who speak with evil tongues, and we have followed the wrong leaders. This had divided our nation. Forgive us and set us on the right path. Choose godly leaders for us and grant them Your wisdom. Help us honor You in everything we say and do, and guide us to create social order for the good of all our citizens. We pray for stability in our leaders, a prosperous economy, and protection for this nation. Help us to act honorably in every way and guide us live righteous lives so we may point the way to a relationship with You.

Amen.

Matthew 12:25

Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand.”

 Dear Heavenly Father,

We lift up to you our divided nation and pray for healing. Self-interest and thoughts of power permeate many who lead us, and even those in the general population. Help us remember our common interests and work together to solve our problems in a godly way. Help us to embrace and celebrate our similarities as well as our differences. That is where solutions will come from. Remind us daily that we all your precious children and we are better together.

Amen.
