Heavenly Father, I pray for these things foremost:

That your kingdom will come, that your will be done in the United States as it is in heaven.

That you will in no ways remove blessings from our country but rather pour more out according to your will and in keeping with your mercy and holiness. We pray for justice for the indigent poor, the marginalized, the sick, the dispossessed, the oppressed, the unborn killed by abortions past, and the unborn endangered by the threat of abortions to come.

That you will keep your church unified in the gospel of your Son Jesus Christ and in the harmony of love and humility.

That you will keep us from idols, political or religious or otherwise, knowing that our permanent residency is the kingdom of heaven.

And that you will send your Spirit on a mission of Christian revival in this land, which is our only hope of salvation from sin and shame, and from leaders and lawgivers who cannot escape sin and shame nor deliver us from them.

In the authoritative name of Jesus I pray,

(Scotty’s prayer today is better.)
