a prayer for my beloved country

Heavenly Father,

Your Spirit is pushing me to pray for the condition of my beloved country.  To lift up all citizens to the promise of your throne and ask for salvation, grace, and holiness on earth as it is in Heaven.  Intercede for us, dear King, and change us to become more like you.  Lead us to your revival.  Teach us to let go of our own selfish lusts, agendas, idols.  Show us your profound, lasting mercy.  Use us to serve your Name.  Unite us.  Protect us.  Resolve in us to believe and once again trust the truth of your eternal Word.

Faithful Shepherd, there are so many lost, angry, fragile, frightened. Let your unfailing love and secure guidance consume every heart and mind.  Let your purpose and path become our only focus.  Give this nation your perfect wisdom to acknowledge our emotionally stubborn and shaken temperaments as mere indicators... reminders to live deliberately in love rather than succumb to hate and/or discord against one another.

You, precious Savior, are the answer to all that upsets and destroys.  Yours is the only solution to all uncertainty, evil, fear, brokenness.  Open our eyes to your new Life, your Way.  Remove the scales and let us know your Truth.

Lord, I pray for our leadership, our government, our churches, our families.  Teach us to obey your law first.  Bring us into your integrity and peace.  May every man, woman, and child seek you in every matter.  To know you intimately, honestly.

Convict us.  Bless us.  Be our one God, dearest Jesus.

We need you.
We need you.
We need you.

Come, Lord Jesus... please come.
