Prayer for America

Heavenly Father, today I beg you to forgive my nation. We have officially declared ourselves for the world and against Christ. Please forgive us Father for our many sins against you. I know that we deserve your judgment against us, but I ask you for mercy. Today, our country gave 'hearty approval' to those who practice immorality, but we have also been doing that for a long time now. Lord, please forgive us for our fornication and for our hearty approval for sex out of marriage. It has wreaked havoc on our nation with children without fathers and divorce tearing apart lives. I know your laws are there to protect us from such havoc, yet we did not listen to you. Our children grow up without your guidance and turn to all kinds of violence and theft. Please forgive us, Father, for the broken familes and for not teaching our children to love You. Please forgive us for glorifying every kind of violence on our televisions and in our movies, rather than You, our Creator, who deserves all glory and praise. Please forgive us for sacrificing our babies on the alter of selfishness. The life You created is so beautiful, yet we throw it away like it means nothing. Forgive us, Father, for our churches becoming cold places of self indulgence, where people come not to worship You and be transformed by your word, but come instead to a social club to feel good about ourselves. Forgive us, Father, for not being your light in the world. I ask in the name of Jesus for you to spare us from your judgment. Amen.

Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21 For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
