A Prayer for our Country
2 Chronicles 7:14 "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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
Lord we ask for your forgiveness for our country and we genuinely seek your direction, and guidance.
We have abandoned the ideals of our founding fathers.
We have been on the wrong road.
We have inverted your values Lord.
We have ridiculed your work in the name of moral pluralism.
We fought a sinful civil war between the states to keep slavery alive.
We have endorsed perversion, and called it an alternate life style.
We have exploited the poor, and called it a lottery.
We have exploited the Indians, and called it gambling.
We have worshiped other Gods, and called it multi-culturism.
We have ignored the needy, and the homeless.
We have rewarded laziness, and called it welfare.
We have killed the unborn, the old, and the sick.
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions, and called it taxes.
We have neglected to discipline our children, and allowed the TV to be their baby-sitter.
We have filled the airwaves with perversion, profanity, and pornography.
We have funded the perversion of the Arts, in the name of freedom of expression.
We have abused power and called it political savvy.
We have ridiculed the values of our forefathers, and called it enlightenment.
We have passed laws to save the Deer and the Whale, and yet we murder our own babies.
We have allowed our schools to re-write history and remove references to your name Lord.
We have passed laws to prevent prayer is schools, but allowed teachers to expose our children to all types of sexual and moral perversions.
We have made fun of Christian family values.
We have legalized tobacco and alcohol, and lied to the world about their hazards.
We have elected all sorts of politicians, and Presidents, with deplorable moral values.
We have stolen land from the Indians, and the Mexicans.
We have brought the Negro slave to toil our land, and yet we still denied them equal rights.
We have supplied guns to both sides in political, and race wars.
We have hired migrant workers to pick our fruit and vegetables, and then send them home hungry.
We have killed politicians to support our political wars in foreign countries, and sold drugs to keep them in power.
We have continued to build landmines that maim the innocent long after the Wars are over.
We have killed people all over the world, in the name of making the world safe for Democracy.
We have committed terrorism all over the world, we say, to punish the terrorist.
We have loaned money to people that could never repay to further our own wealth.
We have allowed ACORN to pervert our election process and Elected a 1/2 Black Man.
We have elected a Muslim born in Kenya to President on a change and re-distribution of the wealth platform.
We have legalized killing of our babies for embryos for research, and cloning.
Father we pray that our President and his advisors will come to know you as their Lord and Savior.
Also Father Help us all remind our Politicians that our constitution says freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. Our founding fathers never intended for this country to be godless!
Help us return to the Judeo-Christian family values that helped found this country before it is to late.
We pray for moral courage, for you know how tempting it to please man rather than you Lord.
Father give us the courage to speak up when we should, and the wisdom to be silent when your cause is best served.
Keep reminding us, O Lord, that life isn't measured in the abundance of our possessions, but rather in our acceptance of Your Son Jesus the Christ as our Lord and Savior.
In Jesus name we pray!
Amen and Amen.
Do you really know what the First Amendment to the US Constitution says?
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
That is the complete text. Not quite what the LEFT would like you to believe?
If you approve of this prayer send it on to 5 friends. (Web Site Started August 31, 1998)
