God Bless America, Please!

       We’ve all sung God Bless America more times than we can count.  If this truly is a prayer from our hearts, what exactly are we praying for?  In what specific ways are we praying for God to bless America, especially during these troubled times?  Below are some scriptures to guide our prayers for this land that we love.

  •  Pray for the Lord’s plans and the purposes of His heart to reign over our country, as well as our individual lives for generations  to  come.           Psalm 33:10-11 
  • Pray for God to work in us, individually and as a nation, to will and to act according to His good purpose. Philippians 2:13 
  • Pray for America to be a nation whose God is the Lord.  Pray that more and more people from the common man to our government officials will look to God as their Lord, as the One who calls us out of the darkness into the light.  Psalm 33:12
  •  Pray our leaders will not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.  Pray they will instead delight and meditate in the law of the Lord.  Psalm 1:1-3
  •  Pray we will be a people who belong to God and will declare the praises of Him who called us out of darkness into His wonderful light.  I Peter 2:9
  •  Pray for us as a nation to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and claim His promise to meet our needs and give us peace of mind and heart.  Matthew 6:31-34
  •  Pray for righteousness to exalt our nation as we turn away from the sins that disgrace our people.  Proverbs 14:34
  •  Pray our country will be a light to the world and the world will see our good deeds and praise our Father in heaven.  Matthew 5:14-16

 IMPORTANT:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

  •  Pray those of us who are called by His name will humble ourselves and pray and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways so that God will hear from heaven, forgive our sins and heal our land.
