The Dedication of This Nation
“We do hereby dedicate this land and ourselves to reach the people within these shores with the gospel of Jesus Christ and to raise up godly generations after us, and with these generations take the Kingdom of God to all the earth. May this covenant of dedication remain to all generations as long as this earth remains and may this land be evangelists to the whole earth.” Rev. Robert Hunt, Cape Henry, VA, April 29, 1607.
“How great are his signs, how mighty his wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion endures from generation to generation.” (Daniel 4:3; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Take a minute and thank the Lord for those like the Reverend Robert Hunt that He sent to dedicate America to Him and His purposes.
Read Rev. Hunt’s dedication as a prayer and agree that this is still God’s heart for this land! Believe that we will continue to fulfill that covenant.
This nation has and continues to be a nation sending evangelists to the whole earth. Pray that this will increase even more, but that we will go to teach nations how to reach their own people with the gospel of the Kingdom.
Pray for those issues the nation currently struggles with that are out of alignment with God’s plan, such as abortion on demand, the transgender issue, homosexual marriage, broken families due to divorce, continued racial divisions, etc.
A prayer you can pray:
Dear Lord, thank you for sending Christians to these shores at the very beginning who You knew would dedicate this land to You and to Your purposes. Thank you that you planned for this nation to “reach the people within these shores with the gospel of Jesus Christ and to raise up godly generations after us, and with these generations take the Kingdom of God to all the earth” and to send evangelists into the nations of the earth. We say increase this now, Lord! Reverse the actions of the enemy to institute ungodly laws that are out of alignment with Your Word. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.
The United States of America was dedicated to God for the advancement of His Kingdom and the spreading of the gospel to the whole earth and that mandate has not changed!
