How Do We Pray for America?

People ask how to pray for our country. Shall we ask for God’s favor? Shall we ask for protection? What should we ask for? The answer is that Jesus himself gave us guidance in his own words, in the prayer we rightly call the Lord’s Prayer. Following that guidance, I offer this prayer for America.

Oh Father in Heaven, our Creator and our Savior,

May your name be hallowed in every word and deed of citizens and visitors to our nation.

May your name be hallowed among all who call our nation home.

May your kingdom be established here on earth and most especially here within the hearts of Americans.

May your will be done in every corner of our nation and the world.

May we acknowledge that all we have is your abundant gift to us for our blessing and our welfare.

May you pour out your righteousness, the holy blood of Jesus over every person Cleanse each of us of all our sinful desires and sinful acts, and teach us to forgive and bless one another richly that our every thought may be to bless our neighbor.

Show us the way to go, and nudge us away from the tempting thoughts of evil.

Lord God, our heavenly father, rule us here on earth and across our nation.

May glory surround you and honor you forever.
