A Prayer for our Nation

Dear Lord
Have mercy on us we pray, that in our hour of need you would hear the cry of your people and that you would answer us.
Lord forgive us for turning our backs on you and going are own way.
As a nation, we choose to turn around and to seek your face once again.

Almighty God, we come today to honour you. We come to acknowledge that you are the only one who can rightly lead and guide our nation.

The time has come Lord for us to seek your face, to humble ourselves as we listen to your wisdom, and ready to walk in integrity and love towards you and each other. Lord, we pray that all the hatred and violence in our country would give way to a new season of godliness – overflowing with an abundance of your love and peace.

We pray for all those in authority, that you would give them your wisdom and discernment as they lead. We ask that you would appoint strong, faithful men and women to serve this nation and our people.
We pray for your great healing on our land. Shine your face on us dear God. We need you now, more than ever before. Our times are in your hands.

Lord, would you be with your people, extending your grace, granting your freedom, providing your protection, and empowering with your strength. We ask that you’d bring about an awakening of your presence as never seen before. We ask that your Name be proclaimed, that all plans to silence the Name of Jesus would be thwarted and crushed.
We pray that many would come to know you as Lord and Savior, we pray that many would see your Light, that you would open blind eyes and release those still imprisoned.

Thank you, Lord, that you are for us and not against us. Bring honour to your name we pray and let his nation be great once again we pray.
In Name of Jesus, Amen.
