Prayer for America

Deuteronomy 9:6

"You must recognize that the Lord your God is not giving you this good land because you are good, for you are not - you are a stubborn people."

Lord, we don't occupy this good land of America because we are good, for we are not - we are a stubborn people. I can be one of the most stubborn of the lot. Please forgive our lack of trust and obedience. 
We are tempted to think You are… Distracted…disengaged…disinterested, Inattentive…inactive…impotent, Out-maneuvered…out-moded…out-classed, Unable…unaffected…and even unaware… of our fear… our helplessness…our confusion…our outrage. Why do You seem so small while our problems, disasters, and enemies seem so large? (from Anne Graham Lotz preprayer for 2016)
We confess that we are the ones who have been distracted, disengaged, disinterested, inattentive, inactive, impotent, out-maneuvered, out-moded, out-classed, unable, unaffected, and even unaware.

Help us to turn to you with our whole hearts. Send a revival to America. Soften hard hearts and remove the blindness from people's minds. (2 Corinthians 4:4) Give Americans hearts that recognize you as the Lord. Let us be your people and be our God when we return to you wholeheartedly. (Jeremiah 24:7)

Lord you said: "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV

Lord, Christians all over America are humbling themselves and praying and seeking your face and turning from their wicked ways. Please be attentive to these prayers.

Lord, I know that things that have been prophesied WILL happen. There seems to be no mention of America in Biblical end time prophecy. But that doesn't mean that you can't send a revival and bring as many people as possible into your flock before it is too late. I believe that is the whole purpose of the tribulation anyway; to give humanity one last chance to repent and turn from our wicked ways.

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord isn't really being slow about his promise as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.

In Jesus' name, amen. <3

Matthew 4:4
But Jesus told him, "No! The Scriptures say, 'People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.' "
Matthew 4:4

Psalm 37:3-5
Trust in the LORD and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the LORD,
and he will give you your heart's desires.
Commit everything you do to the LORD.
Trust him, and he will help you.
Psalm 37:3-5
