Prayers for the Nation

As Independence Day, (4th of July), is approaching here in America, the word that is staying on my heart is “prayer”. We need prayers for repentance, healing, justice, equality, compassion, wisdom, peace…the list goes on and on.

2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV,  “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Knowing God is sovereign over all things, people and events brings comfort. Trusting His love and protection day by day brings security. Focusing on His purposes brings perspective. I’m thankful that His ways and thoughts are higher than ours (Isaiah 55:8). When things seem to spiral out of control, He is still in control. His goodness and mercy never cease to follow us (Psalm 23:6). We are blessed to know and serve the God of creation.

No matter what part of the world you live in, I pray God’s presence and love would surround you, and that His Word would light your way. The hope we have in Jesus will never lead to shame (Psalm 25:3).
