Patriotic Meditations from Judypie

Our Government

Father, we ask that you compass the president about with men and women who make their hearts and ears attentive to godly counsel and do that which is right in your sight. We pray that the upright shall dwell in our government – men and women blameless and complete in your sight Father. We ask that the wicked be cut off and the treacherous rooted out of our government. In the name of Jesus, we thank you for answering our prayer. Amen

21For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the men of integrity, blameless and complete [in God's sight], shall remain in it;
22But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the treacherous shall be rooted out of it.
Proverbs 2:21-22 [AMP]

Prayer for our Country

Heavenly Father, we thank you for our country, the United States of America. We are Your people who are called by Your name. We humble ourselves by praying, seeking Your face and turning from our wicked ways. Thank You for hearing us as we pray with a contrite heart. We ask forgiveness for our sin. Have mercy on us, O Lord, and heal our land in the name of Jesus. Amen.

If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 [AMP]

The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein (Psalm 24:1). God’s world is beautiful and so are all of the tribes, nations and kindred of the earth. As we pray let us offer thanksgiving for our home and offer prayers that those who dwell on this blue orb would acknowledge its Creator as God and His son as our Saviour.

Prayer for the Nations

Father, we are your children, heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ who share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. We ask you, Father, to make the nations our inheritance, the ends of the earth our possession for your glory and your purposes. In the name of Jesus, we pray for the healing of the nations. Praise God! It is our Lord Jesus who will bring true justice and peace to all the nations of the world. Amen

Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
Romans 8:17 [NIV]

7 I will proclaim the decree of the LORD :
       He said to me, “You are my Son ;
       today I have become your Father.
 8 Ask of me,
       and I will make the nations your inheritance,
       the ends of the earth your possession.

Psalm 2:7-8 [NIV]

His government and its peace
  will never end.
He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David
  for all eternity.
The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies
  will make this happen!
Isaiah 9:7 [NLT]

1Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
Rev. 22:1-2 [NIV]
