A Prayer for Our Nation on this National Day of Prayer
“Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name." Daniel 9:19
In 1952 President Harry Truman signed a bill into law, making the National Day of Prayer for America an annual event on the first Thursday of May, encouraging millions across our nation to unite together to pray.
We've come a long way since that day. And now, maybe more than ever, our nation needs our continued prayers for God’s healing, help, and peace.
Yet, sometimes it's hard to know where to begin or how to pray. We just know we have a deep ache in our hearts that cries out for God's mercy, and a longing to see him heal our land. And maybe other times we wonder how effective our prayers even are. But no matter how we feel, we can be confident that God is faithful. He is aware and His Spirit is at work, over all that swirls around us in our nation today. That same power that broke prison chains, raised Lazarus from the dead, and parted the Red Sea, the same power that healed the blind man, and delivered the delirious from demons, that same power is at work still today. He is the same. Yesterday, today, and forever.
May we stand together as believers, and pray for God to heal our land, and strengthen His people. May we pray for all those in authority. May we pray for God’s miraculous intervening, for blind eyes to be opened, for many to see the power of our Lord as never before.
We are never left to fend for ourselves, wrestling in worry, consumed with fear, or driven towards hate. He reminds us that He is with us, He will help us, and hasn't lost control, but has a plan. And His purposes will prevail.
We can be assured, that He hears our prayers, He knows our needs. There's great power in uniting together, turning our hearts towards God, and praying on behalf of America, our nation.
At this important time in our nation’s history, we can do nothing more important than pray.
Remembering today this powerful truth upon which this nation was founded. We are "One Nation Under God." He is where our real hope is found, not in our leaders, not in our economy, not in the condition of our nation today, or any other day. "...my hope comes from Him." Ps. 62:5
