Prayer for America

O America, return to the Lord your God, for you have stumbled and fallen due to your iniquities.  America, recognize and understand that the Lord, is your God; the faithful God, Who keeps covenant and steadfast love and mercy with those who love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations; acknowledge Him Who is leading you through this great and terrible wilderness of uncertainties with its serpents, and scorpions ready to consume you; America, pull down the altars of Baal, where you sacrifice your children disregarding their cries of pain at your mercy!  Examine your ways and return to the Lord; the Lord, the Lord, is compassionate and gracious; He will forgive you!  Return to the Lord, put away your abominable false gods, for a lion has gone up from his thicket, and a destroyer of nations is on his way.  He has gone forth from his place to make your land a desolate waste; and your cities shall be left in ruins without an inhabitant; for this, gird yourselves with sackcloth, lament and wail; the evil time is upon you America, for truth has fallen on the streets and uprightness cannot enter [the courts of justice].  Shake yourself from the dust, loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O America, God shed His blood for you and crowned you with loving-kindness; seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near; His precious blood will cleanse you clean, when you repent of your wicked ways and turn to Him.  Take away from your midst yokes of oppression. Your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden His face from you; you know not your way to peace.  The Lord waits for you, America; He will be pleased to bless you again, when you turn to Him with your whole heart and mind.

The stripes YAHSHUA suffered in His body was for you, America! The bruises He suffered in His soul was for you America, His blood shed through the crown pierced on His head, through the nail pierced hands and feet was for you America; the merciless floggings applied on His body, was for you America.  Annul your contract with the darkness and death; come to the Light, let justice run down like waters and righteousness as a mighty and ever-flowing stream, then the glory of the Lord, His holiness and goodness will shine on you from east to west, from north to south.  Seek good and not evil that you may live, and the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you.  Know in all your heart and in your soul that not one thing has failed of all the good things which the Lord has promised concerning you.  Return to the Lord, America, circumcise your heart to the Lord and be revived to receive His blessings.

PRAYER

O Lord God of heaven, You Who keep covenant, loving-kindness, and mercy for those who love You and keep Your commandments, let You ear now be attentive and Your eyes open to listen to the prayer of Your servants which we pray before You day and night for America, confessing her sins which she has sinned against You. We acknowledge our sins and the sins of our nation before You.  We have acted very corruptly against You and have not kept the commandments statutes and ordinances which You commanded.  O Lord, let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servants who delight to revere and fear Your name. O my God, incline Your ear and hear, for we do not present our supplications before You, for our own righteousness and justice, but for Your great mercy and loving-kindness.  Lord, we Your people are crying to You for mercy; hear us from heaven according to Your loving-kindness; O Lord, according to all Your righteousness and justice, we beseech You, let Your anger and Your wrath be turned away from us, Your people; listen to and heed the prayer of Your servants and their supplications and for Your sake cause Your face to shine upon us. You are just in all that has come upon us, for we have acted wickedly.  God, be merciful and gracious to America and bless her and cause Your face to shine upon her and among her, that your way may be known upon earth, and Your saving power among the nations; O You Who hears prayer, to You shall all flesh come; O Lord hear!  O Lord forgive!  O Lord give heed and act!  Do not delay, for Your own sake, O my God, because Your people are called by Your name. You Who still the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves and the tumult of the peoples, You, O God, You are our God!  In Your wrath, remember mercy, so that Your people who call on Your name, will not be destroyed. For who knows the power of Your anger?  And Your wrath, who connects it with the reverent fear that is due You?

In You, O Lord, do we put our trust and confidently take refuge; let us never be put to shame or confusion!  Deliver us in Your righteousness and cause us to escape; bow down Your ear to us and save us!  Be to us a rock of refuge in which to dwell, and a sheltering stronghold to which we may continually resort, which You have appointed to save us, for You are our Rock and our Fortress.  We will wait and hope for You O Lord.  We call on Your name for our salvation, drag us not away with the wicked, with the workers of iniquity, for we are your people.  Arise, O Lord and vindicate Your holy name among the nations.

In the most precious name, the name of YAHSHUA, amen!
