A Prayer for the Changing Season

I am burdened for our nation and still don’t know how to put it into words. The season is changing in America and unfortunately we are entering one of censorship. In love, I felt led to post a prayer guide (while I still can).

Politics aside, our nation is in desperate need of prayer and turning back to God. We’ve known that for a long time. I hope that you will read along and pray with me as we walk through this uncertain year.

Proverbs 6:16-19 “There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family.”

Father, America claims to be one nation under your Name, yet broadcasts and celebrates the things you hate and under Your banner. I know you see this. I know your word doesn’t change. I ask that the hearts of those who provoke You to anger would turn to You for salvation or if they are a believer would feel conviction and repent. If we as believers have sinned against you in any of these ways, please forgive us. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Daniel 2:22 “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him.”

Father, there are whispers of much being done in secret places. We know as believers that we are not supposed to spread rumors or fear conspiracies, but we do ask that You who see everything bring to light publicly what is being done in the dark. If there is dishonesty in our government, Lord, please lead them to transparency. If there is wrong doing in our democratic system, let there be full disclosure and let honesty prevail. In the same way we must stop demonizing each other, slapping on labels and slandering the person just because the media says it’s so. Forgive us for that, Lord. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

John 10:10 “The enemy comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

Father, the enemy is having a field day this year trying to steal, kill and destroy our country. He is the prince of the power of the air and he has been spreading division and doubt through the media. We ask that believers would recognize the enemy when we see the evidence of his ways. Help us to live by Your word and for You to give us life to the full as we turn from this dark evil world system to Your kingdom of light. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn.This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,”

Lord, we know you have a plan for who will be in the White House. We know you have an end in mind for this pandemic. We know You want truth to prevail, not lies. We know Christ is our righteousness and You are a God of order. Father we ask that truth will prevail in 2020. If there is fraud in our election, please expose it. Free and fair elections are what should be our right as Americans no matter who you vote for. Please silence lying in the media. Please allow truth to be broadcast. Help your word to go forth freely without censorship. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Job 5:12 “He frustrates the devices of the crafty, So that their hands cannot carry out their plans. He catches the wise in their own craftiness, And the counsel of the cunning comes quickly upon them.They meet with darkness in the daytime, And grope at noontime as in the night.”

Finally, Lord, frustrate the plans of the enemy who seeks to tear apart our nation. Can You see anyone in power within or outside our nation who is carrying out or trying to carry out plans that are not of You? We pray you will remove from power those who seek to corrupt the America our founders intended.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
