“A Prayer For America”


Lord God, we in this nation desperately need your wisdom.

You graciously gave us a great country, founded on principles and truths from Your Word.

In this day and time, we need men and women who will honor You, trust You, and lead us once again back to You.


We pray for servant leaders who love the things You love and who care more about others than themselves.


O’ Lord… give us leaders with discerning hearts, bold faith, and wise minds that model Your character.

If they must be shaped or broken by Your potters hand… do so.

Teach them—and us—not just what is good, but what is best.

Clearly guide us and our leaders in the way our country should go.

Give them purity in their intentions, and godliness in their convictions.

Energize or re-energize their spirits and bodies physically and spiritually, and keep them emotionally secure in the knowledge of who You are—and whose they are.

Help them to be bighearted and sincere, energetic in goodness, and courteous in their manners.

Please dear Lord…

Raise up leaders with the greatest potential of godly leadership, those who can ease confusion, end devisive talk and actions… expose illusion and heal delusion.

You alone hold the power to turn the hearts of leaders, may You listen and use our prayers to move them into right action.

Help us to be faithful to care and to pursue Your heart in prayer.


Encourage them to choose wisely, and when they don’t know what to do, help them keep their eyes on You.

Empower them to take a firm stand on issues that truly matter to You, regardless of the consequences or approval ratings.


Make them God-pleasers, not puppets; leaders filled with conviction, not corruption.


As a nation, God, help us to desire righteousness more than rights, and to mirror sacrifice more than selfishness.


You know us well, and You understand our flaws.

Turn those weaknesses into strengths; bathe us with Your grace and mercy, though none of us deserve it.

Fill us with the boldness to choose the kind of freedom that will benefit all, rather than a few.


Open our eyes to see others as You do—with godly potential and value.


But help us, too, to recognize our own pride in trying to elevate ourselves and others above You and Your purpose for our lives.


We need, You, God.

Oh, how we need You!
