Daily Read - 1 Samuel 8:1-9:27; John 6:22-42; Psalm 106:32-48; Proverbs 14:34-35
Dear Father God, I stand in the gap for our wonderful country and lift it up before Your righteous throne. I pray for the heart of this nation to turn once again to its righteous beginnings where we will truly be one nation, united under God.
Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.
I pray for Your sovereign justice to rule and reign in this land. I command all things hidden brought up into the light of Your truth. Let Your truth expose all hidden sin within every branch of government. Truth revealed in the name of Jesus. I command all plans and schemes of wickedness be brought up from darkness and unearthed for all eyes to see.
Your Kingdom come and Your will be done in and through every senator, congressman, judge, governor, mayor, teacher, and especially through the president and his entire cabinet. May Your righteousness and truth flow through every facet of society bringing a mighty awakening in this great land.
Lord, begin with me. Search me and reveal all places of hidden darkness that I may quickly repent and walk away from it. Purge the body of Christ starting with the leadership. I pray for Your precious church to return to the power of the full gospel and not a watered down version that tickles the ear. Let us return to a message which challenges us into change rather than stroking us into a slumbering sleep.
Precious Jesus, we need a mighty outpouring of Your presence to rain down on this dry and thirsty nation. We are desperate for an awakening in the body of Christ that we would turn from our wicked ways and bow in humble adoration before our Almighty God. Then You will hear from heaven and heal our land. I pray for a holy fire to ignite inside the hearts and minds of Your people. I ask for Your gracious love to come and bring righteousness out of the ashes of destruction. I pray that as we humble ourselves as a nation before Your throne, You will lift us up in greatness and we will once again bring honor and glory to Your awesome name. Amen!
