A Prayer for America
Thank You for our great country,
You’ve preserved throughout the years.
Birthed and sustained with blood
And with a great many tears.
Thank You for this country
Which You’ve blessed,
Times over and over,
Making us so prosperous.
We thank You for how
To other countries a help we’ve been
Looking to us in bad times:
Trouble, illness, poverty, just when.
We pray for our President and family,
Senators, Representatives, Judges, too.
Governors, Mayors, Councilmembers,
Just to name a few.
Looking toward You
May they seek Your wisdom,
Not their own,
In actions and decisions.
We pray that America turns
From our wrongs against You,
That You will forgive us
For all the wickedness we do.
We thank You for blessing America.
We praise Your Name above,
As You’ve granted goodness to America
Thank you for your love.
In Jesus name, Amen.

On this, our Independence Day, we take time to thank God for our country. Also, as at no other time in the history of our nation, it is time that we change and ask God for forgiveness for breaking His commandments; and then He will heal our land. (See the Holy Bible – 2 Chronicles 7:14.) It’s time also for us to trust Christ as our personal Savior (if we haven’t); and then to bathe in His wonderful grace.
