Pray for Our Nation: The Economy

From the book Pray for Our Nation, published by Harrison House, p. 14:

Dear Father, in the name of the Lord Jesus, I pray for our economy. I know that even more than a strong military, a strong economy helps keep a nation powerful.

Father, I pray that You would raise up people of skill and wisdom who would affect the economy of our nation. Give them inspired ideas and a voice with the powers that be.

Cause Congress to vote aright in these matters. Give them foresight so that provision might be made for our nation’s future, not just its present.

Father, as the people of our nation continue to finance the preaching of the Gospel and help the poor all over the world, I pray that You would continue to prosper us more and more.

While we give praise to God, the supreme disposer of all  events, for  His interposition on our behalf, let us guard against the dangerous error of trusting in, or boasting of, an arm of flesh…

If your case is just, if your principles are pure, and your conduct is prudent, you need not fear the multitude of opposing hosts.

— John Witherspoon, A Signer of the Declaration of Independence

Pray for Our Nation: National Protection

Back in 2003, when the Iraq War was just beginning, I came across a wonderful book in a Christian store called Pray for Our Nation, published by Harrison House in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A collection of thoughtful prayers written specifically for the USA, categories include Prayers for the Leaders of Our Nation, Prayers for the Social Welfare of Our Nation, Prayers for the Safety of Our Nation and Prayers for the Spiritual Growth of Our Nation.

With the midterms just 9 days away, I am finding  much comfort in reciting these beautiful prayers aloud. Action may be the anecdote for fear, but praying for the success of that action is vital. Everyday, I thank God I am an American citizen who had the privilege of being raised in a loving, stable, supportive home — one in which, among other things I was taught genuine love and appreciation for the United States of America and about God.

Today, I am posting the Prayer for National Protection, found on p. 48:

Most high God, I come to you in the name of Jesus, asking for divine protection for the people of this nation. I pray for the  safety of every man, woman and child. Keep us from harm’s way and provide protection from plans of destruction that our enemies have plotted. Stop strategies of destruction that our  enemies would try to evoke.

Give wisdom, understanding and discernment to those who provide protection. Help us to be watchful and alert to signs of wrongdoing. Provide insight to national  and local authorities on ways to guard,  defend and insure the safety of all American citizens, both at home and abroad. Help  us to unite with government leaders and law enforcement personnel in making this country a safe place to live, work and play; allowing Americans to enjoy freedom without fear.

“Our  prayer and God’s mercy are like two buckets in a well; while one ascends, the other descends.”

— Mary Hopkins, US Educator
