We Remember: A Prayer for Our Nation

We haven’t forgotten
Who made a way
For us to be a nation
So today it is our declaration
Our proclamation
You are still the God of our nation.

We confess we have sinned
Neglected to follow your way
But we turn again
Today forgive our sin and
Heal our land
Touch us with Your hand.

Let our country
Be the place where You dwell
Where mountains stand
And rivers swell.

Give us crops that heal
Armies that shield
Hearts that bleed
Souls that heed
To Your Spirit’s lead.

We remember
All you have done
How You set us free
Now we decree
We exclaim with glee

“Lord God, reign and rule through all eternity!”

Prayer for Our Nation

Holy Father, America is not America without Your presence. God bless America. You make our nation great. Forgive us for our sins. May we become a nation that runs after You.

When a Nation Prays Together

When a nation prays together
What differences would we see?
There would be more love
And less focus on what separates you from me.

When a nation prays together
What would happen to each child?
There would be less violence
And more hopeful, cheerful smiles.

When a nation prays together,
How many prisons would seize to exist?
There would be fewer desperate people
And deeper understanding about the crimes they commit.

A praying nation would change more lives.
There would be more cause for hope, more evidence of peace.
The world would begin a transformation
The hunger and devastation of negligence would seize.

Today is the National Day of Prayer.
God hears and sees each need.
He will respond to our cry and act
When a nation prays and believe.

2 Chronicles 7:14-15 (NLV)
14 if My people who are called by My name put away their pride and pray, and look for My face, and turn from their sinful ways, then I will hear from heaven. I will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 15 Now My eyes will be open. And My ears will hear the prayer that is made in this place.
