TO PRAYER & FASTING

24-7-prayer_edited_edited_edited_edited.

We are inviting everyone to join with us & countless others across the nation responding to this unique time in American History by praying & fasting Jan 18-20th.  Let's help shape what comes next for our nation by engaging with God in earnest prayer that invites more of His redemptive influence in the United States. "Here, as in Heaven".

 

 

We've provided some prayer prompts to help you get started & also to help bring unity to the direction of our prayers.  You can speak the scriptures & prayers aloud in agreement, or pray through these themes in your own way.

 

 

I Timothy 2:1-2 – I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession & thanksgiving be made for all people - for kings and all those in authority... that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.

 

  • Heavenly Father, we thank you that You hold us in your hands, & that Your love poured out on us is unconditional. 

  • Guide the hearts of our nation’s leaders to align with Your aims & objectives for the USA in this critical season.

  • God, give wisdom & humility to all governmental leaders, to help them govern in ways that are righteous & bring shalom/peace in our cities.

  • Help our national guard soldiers & law enforcement as they serve to protect the capitals in all our states from any plots to threaten, steal or destroy property, lives, & liberties there.   

Proverbs 11:14 – For lack of guidance a nation falls, but victory is won through many good advisers.

  • Father, calm tempers, ease tensions, & give us Your guidance to navigate things on the political front.

  • May the Spirit of wisdom & understanding would express itself through all kinds of people throughout all sectors of our society, helping us work toward justice, fairness, compassion, racial equity, & expressions of human dignity in all our governance, institutions, systems, marketplace & social arenas. 

II 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 I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

 

  • Father, we pray that You would inspire Christians in the US to turn away from the barrage of distractions & seek You in this pivotal time. 

  • Help us truly humble ourselves before You in this season. Show us how.

  • We pray for a movement of repentance to wash across the body of Christ in America - resulting in the rejection of divisiveness, combativeness & hate.

  • Help us surrender any resentments or offenses toward others, & let the love of God & a spirit of reconciliation invade all our hearts.

  • Empower us to walk in humility with others, & more like Jesus with our words, actions, attitudes, and pursuits.

  • Father, in heaven, help us reorient around our identity in Christ, & as citizens of heaven embrace the pruning & redemptive intentions of God for this moment in history, & look to You for the healing & strengthening of our nation.
