Pre-Election Prayer for America
ALMIGHTY GOD, we thank You that it is for freedom You have set us free! In this critical hour for the destiny of our nation, we cry out for Your mercy, that America would truly be “the land of the free.”
You are the source of all true freedom–yet even now, we take it for granted. We squander our liberty, blaming others for the state of our nation, when Your Word clearly says, “IF MY PEOPLE….”
Forgive us O God. You have called us to a place of profound responsibility, that we might be Your ambassadors of reconciliation in these polarizing times. Only through You, Lord Jesus, can we rise to the call. Teach us Your humility. Keep us grounded in Your strength, as You strengthen us to stand our ground–not just on Election Day, but every day.
Re-unite these United States! Restore our families; transform our communities; stir up the hearts of our leaders as we lift them up in prayer. Lord, You are good and Your mercy endures forever!
Have mercy on us and heal our land. AMEN.
