Pray with Me for Our Nation and Our World!

Lord,
Our hearts are so very heavy with the constant blows of violence that we continue to see in our country and around the world. None of us want to live in a world like this where people are killed so senselessly. Our hearts are broken! None of us want this kind of world for our children.

We, as a nation, have forsaken You, God. You are respecting our wishes and are slowly removing Your hand of protection from us to allow us to have what we want – freedom from You. But that means that we will live under the oppression of sin and Satan. Many of us don’t realize that “freedom from You” is quite literally “hell.” Freedom from You is freedom from everything that is good and right – and it is oppression by everything that is evil and wrong.

Please open our eyes before it is too late for us to see that we desperately need You in our lives, our government, our homes, our families, our schools, our businesses, and our churches! Without You, we will destroy ourselves as a country. We pray for a new Great Awakening unlike anything any of us have ever seen in our lifetimes in this culture. We can’t provide for ourselves. Everything we have comes from You. We can’t protect ourselves. Our safety is in Your hands. We can do nothing apart from You. Let us individually and corporately repent of our sin and turn to You humbly in faith and trust, ready to live under the Lordship of Christ. Only You can heal our land. Bring Your love and unity to our country and our culture. Heal our divisions, hatred, and gaping wounds. Calm our fears and fill us with Your love for each other.

We also lift up our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world and so many who are hurting and living in danger and in poverty. We lift up Russia as believers will face new persecution later this month as new laws go into effect to try to prevent them from sharing Christ with unbelievers in churches, in communities, online, and in their own private homes. These laws threaten them with fines and jail time if they witness for Christ. We lift up those affected by ISIS and extremist terror groups who are living in unspeakable conditions and horror, who can’t find food, water, shelter, and medicine for their families and who risk their lives by professing Christ. Let us stand united with them. Let them know they are dearly loved by You and by us.

Provide for our brothers and sisters in need. Use us to bless them with prayers and with material help. Thank You for the freedom we currently have to share Christ and to minister. Let us use this time and gift from You wisely! Let us be about Your business in our private lives, and in our communities. Use us to shine for You here in this world. You have us here in this place at this time for such a time as this. Empower us to be faithful to You! We pray for Your will to be done and Your kingdom to come. Use us to be Your hands and feet to love and to meet the needs of those who are suffering. Let us forsake worldly things and worldly wisdom and set our eyes on heavenly things and things that will matter eternally for Your glory.

In the Name and power of Christ,
Amen!

  1. Thank you April! As wives and mothers, we pray for our husbands and kids in our own lives, but it is very important in this day and age to pray for the fallen world that our husbands and kids go out into each day. Only love, God’s love particularly, can conquer the hate and evil we see today.
    My constant reminder is that I am “in” this world and not “of” it-so I am praying to keep my mind on things of God. Specific prayers also for the people of color beat down mentally by the years of oppression and now videotape evidence of their pain, AS WELL AS prayers for good police officers who risk their lives daily to protect us. We can pray for both, and pray love will rule!

  2. Thank you for your eloquent words. Our churches and religious leaders need to speak up and preach love and tolerance for believers and non-believers, and people representing all faiths, ways of life and political beliefs.

  3. Hello April,

    I was wondering if I could use a translated version of this wonderful prayer for our church in Belgium?

    Greetings
    A sister in Christ

  4. My dear sister,

    Amen sister, amen!

    Every day, I see, hear and read something that points to how strong the enemy of light is, and yet Our Jesus shed His blood for all sins, His light is greater than that darkness.

    We must unite as never before, all brothers and sisters pray and share God’s love in the world, in every nation, may HIS WILL BE DONE!

    Salvation will come through Christ’s sacrifice, not through the politics of the world.

    Politics lives In the flesh of the world:

    This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16 KJV)

    For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. (Galatians 5:17 KJV)

    We must pray and work for the salvation of all mankind.

    In the Power of Christ,
    Amen.

    Your brother in Christ

My grandmother is on hospice and won't be with us much longer (11-30-16). I will get to comments when I am able to but I need to be with family right now. Thanks for understanding.
