In October 2018, I received a copy of this prayer for our nation via email.  The prayer consists of many segments of scripture verses throughout the entirety of the Bible.  The person responsible for compiling this wonderful prayer is unknown.  If you are the author of this prayer, please email me through the Donate/Contact Page so that I can give you the proper acknowledgement. 

Heavenly Father, I give thanks for our government.  

I pray for all men and women having authority over us in any way. 

Pour out Your Spirit upon them and make Your Word known to them. 

Cause them to be men and women of integrity, obedient concerning us, that we may lead quiet and peaceable lives in all godliness and honesty.

Let wisdom enter their hearts, and let knowledge be pleasant to them.

Let discretion preserve them and understanding keep them, to deliver them from the way of evil and from evil men and women.

Make their hearts and ears attentive to Godly counsel, doing what is right in Your sight.

Let the upright dwell in our government.

Cause there to be a shaking in all areas.

Let those complete and blameless before You stay, and cut off the wicked.  Let the unfaithful be rooted out.

Bring to light what is hidden in darkness, and expose the secret aims of the hearts.

Let this nation remember from where we have fallen, repenting and returning to do our first works, setting our hearts and our souls to seek You Lord, humbling ourselves, praying and turning from our wicked ways.

Then hear us, O Lord, and forgive our sins and heal our land.  Open our eyes and turn us from darkness to light.

Soften the hearts that are hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.  Deliver them from their destruction. 

Father, You have been long-suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Raise up a standard in this nation.

Lord, cause the rains of Your Spirit to flood this land, and revive Your work in the midst of us.

Raise up intercessors for this nation, to pull down strongholds over this land.

Father, let Your glory be revealed, from everlasting to everlasting. 

In the name of Jesus, the Deliverer/Messiah/the Christ.
