This prayer-letter represents an generational petition of repentance-in-unity by the body of Christ in America. We have been gathering signatures on this prayer since our first cross-country prayerwalk in 2001, and hope to gather millions more before our final delivery to the White House in 2019/2020.
National Prayer of Repentance
in the Year of Our Lord, 2019
The White House
Dear Mr. President:
With the utmost respect for your God-given authority, I humbly submit this letter to you. In so doing, I stand in agreement with Christians of all colors and customs across this great nation, united in our pledge to become better citizens, who, by the grace of God, will bring positive change to our country. This is our prayer:
Almighty God, we thank You and praise You for Your unending mercy and grace poured out upon our nation. You have delivered us in times of war, reunited us after conflicts among ourselves, and filled our lives with such abundance, Your blessings overflow our borders.
Yet still, we take You for granted. We come before You now, in desperate need of Your forgiveness. We confess that the liberty You so graciously gave us has become a license to do as we please. Our culture mocks You; our highest courts are esteemed above Your Word. We’ve traded genuine spirituality for temporary pleasure, true virtue for hollow celebrity. We teach our children self-indulgence, yet stand mystified at the blood on their hands. We lust after material things, yet wonder why our souls are empty. We lament the walls that divide us, even as we continue to segregate ourselves.
Revive us, O Lord. Your Presence is our only hope. Impart to us Your passion for good over evil. As we humble ourselves and seek Your face, forgive us O God, and heal us. Make us one, that America would be the land You envisioned from the beginning…a beacon of hope lifted to the world, a people free to serve You and one another, in genuine love.
In the name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—in the name of Jesus we pray. AMEN.
Thank you for your consideration of this letter. I pray the Lord will continually increase your wisdom and influence, as you seek Him with all your heart.
