A Prayer for Our Country

A Prayer for Our Country

Prov. 6:16–19 There are six things which the Lord hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil, A false witness who utters lies, And one who spreads strife among brothers.

James 1:19–21 This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls.

Creator, Sovereign, Lord of all, help us.

Though we do not deserve it,

We humbly ask for Your mercy

That You bless this country we dearly love.

Protect us from our enemies

We ask not merely for ourselves, but for our children

Not merely for our children, but for their children

Protect us from ourselves

May we never

exercise the strength of tyrants

misuse talents entrusted to us

or lord over those allotted to our charge

We pray for our country and all it represents

Our men & women overseas, keeping an oath they swore

For their families who keep watch and pray

For all who lead, govern, and serve

For our first responders who engage wrongdoers

For citizens to avoid appearances of evil

Our marriages, families, common sense and moral restraint to keep Your covenants.

Faithful God, thank You

That You look at us and see Your Son’s work

And thank You, that You even hear our prayers.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
