Remember when it was legal to pray in school? Remember when the teacher led in a short 22-word prayer or in reciting the Lord’s Prayer together with the Pledge of Allegiance? Remember when babies were primarily safe in the womb? That was when our nation had a conscience and did its best to honor God. Even though it wasn’t always at a very deep level, there was a fear of the Lord over America.
“Fear of the LORD is the foundation of true wisdom. All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom. Praise him forever!” (Psalms 111:10; NLT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Many of us do remember those days. Ask God for a third Great Awakening to turn us back as a nation.
Ask for the reversal of unrighteous laws and ask God to give us righteous leaders.
Decree that God will choose who sits in the White House and who appoints the next few Supreme Court Justices.
Declare that God will influence the elections from the mayors and city council members to the governors and those in Congress.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, our nation’s past was not perfect or idyllic, but we were known around the world as a nation that honored You. We need another Great Awakening, even more powerful than the first two, in order to set this nation back on Your course. We ask you to reverse unrighteous laws that have been passed these last 50 to 60 years. We ask you to give us righteous leaders – those after Your own heart. We decree that You are able to move on the hearts of men and women as they vote and move them to choose those You have chosen to represent us and restore us, Lord. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done, as we, Your Church, use the Isaiah 22:22 Key of David to open doors no man can shut and shut doors that no man can open!
