Make Every Year Prayer for America.

  • Praying for
  • January, 2013, from Psalm 67 and if you don't know it, go there to read it first!

    Prayer for America:

    Dear God,

    We need Your mercy and blessing.

    When Your face shines upon us we will be a joyful nation that is truly pleasing to You.

    You truly want Your way to be made known in all the earth.

    Salvation is needed in all nations of the World, and it can come only from You and Your blessing.

    The peoples of a nation cannot be happy until they are praising the God of Creation in their own tongue.

    This can happen only when You are judging the peoples thereof with Your righteousness.

    This is the only true government that works in a nation.

    When this happens, then – and only then – can the people praise You.

    And praise You, they will!

    Then will the lands and the earth yield their increase.

    God will be Our God, All the Earth shall see that blessing on us and all nations will fear our God.

    We know this is Your purpose for all the Earth,

    and we thank You for making the United States of America

    what it is now doing to accomplish that purpose.

    But we also now see how much our spiritual evil one seeks to prevent that from happening.

    So we will make this prayer ours.

    --For the Glory of the Son of God, Our Redeemer and our Savior.

    Amen. by Patrick Lanyon

    Sermon Notes from this lesson:


    Challenge awaits us, our families, and our nation, this year. We’ve completed 12 amazing years into this century and we’re seeing things many of us could not dream of as children ourselves. We are facing troubles with the freshness of each new day, month and even year, just like our Psalmist faced in his kingdom.

    As David entrusted his life in the hands of his GOD (v. 5), the Son of God, Jesus, gave up His life for the salvation of men. (Luke 23:46 And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, "Father, 'INTO YOUR HANDS I COMMIT MY SPIRIT.' " Having said this, He breathed His last.)

    I. God’s MERCY Allows Him to Bless Our Nation. Vv.1-2

    Because of sin in a land, God brings judgment. Our nation abounds in sin! But when His longsuffering and patience become eternal it is called MERCY.

    A. We cannot be forgiven apart from His mercy. God cannot be made unholy, so also He cannot permit sin inside His dwelling place. It is only because of His mercy which was ultimately accomplished by Jesus’ sacrifice of the Holy for the Unholy.

    B. We cannot be blessed apart from His mercy. We need the blessing of God.

    You might ask ‘Why?’ A simple scripture makes it clear: Gal. 6:7-8 says:

    Do  not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

Every sinful deed, and thought, sown will be reaped one day.

C. God exercises mercy, and the blessing of His face shining on us for a reason: He wants His way to be made known on earth. We know this is true from the prayer model he has given us: Your Kingdom Come, Your Will be Done (Matt. 6: 10-11) Before this can happen as a life principle, it must happen as an event of life (2 Cor. 6:2) where we receive the gift of God which is eternal life. (Romans 6:23) the phrase concluding verse 2 is really saying God wants to save the whole world, all nations. (John 3:16) (IF YOU ARE NOT SAVED, TRUST JESUS NOW, TODAY!)

II. The Amazing Benefits of God’s Mercy are Incomparable! Vv. 3-7

A. The people will give praise to God. Vv. 3,5. Compare Luke 18:35-43 The Blind beggar healed in Jericho.

B. The people will express gladness and sing songs of joy because God judges and governs them righteously. V. 4 Compare Ex 15!

C. The land will produce bountifully. V. 6a

III. God will become personal to us, and all of earth will fear Him! V. 6b, 7

  • My Prayer for America

    4 ¶ And I prayed to the LORD my God, and made confession, and said, "O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments, 5 "we Americans, as a Nation, have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments.

    6 "Neither have we heeded Your servants the prophets, as well as Your Pastors and anointed servants of the Living God, who spoke in Your name to our kings and our princes, to our fathers and all the people of the land.

    7 "O Lord, righteousness belongs to You, but to us shame of face, as it is this day—

    to the men of every state in America, as with Judah, to the inhabitants of every city in America, as with Israel,

    those near and those far off in all the countries to which You may have separated Americans including those in our Military, because of the unfaithfulness which they have committed against You.

    8 "O Lord, to us belongs shame of face, to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, because we have sinned against You.

    We have united with those who are actually our enemies through our Secret Service and Central Intelligence Agency and other government agencies. We have allowed unjust men to become our leaders; we have allowed great atrocities to be committed in our land and in other countries we have violated sovereignties not our own, and we have allowed noble men to be assassinated and destroyed for unjust gains. And many other sins are we guilty of as a nation We have failed to meditate on Your Word Day and Night. We have forsaken the assembling together regularly and have strayed from Your precepts.

    9 "To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against Him. 10 "We have not obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in His laws, which He set before us by His servants the prophets.

    11 "Yes, all America, as Israel, has transgressed Your law, and has departed so as not to obey Your voice; therefore the curse and the oath written in the Law of Moses the servant of God to Israel has been poured out on us Americans, because we have sinned against Him.

    12 "And He has confirmed His words, which He spoke against us and against our judges who judged us, by bringing upon us great disasters like great storms destroying houses and many other properties, fires burning our lands, drought destroying our crops, diseases and plagues which we have not known; for we are fearful that under the whole heaven such has never been done as what has been done to Jerusalem could very well happen to our lands as it did to Jerusalem and all the nation of Israel.

    13 "As it is written in the Law of Moses, we fear even greater disasters such as all this disaster [in Jerusalem that] has come upon the nation of Israel; yet we have not made our prayer [as a nation] before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities and understand Your truth.

    14 "Therefore the LORD will have to judge us just as He has kept the disaster in mind [for Jerusalem and all Israel], and brought it upon us; for the LORD our God is righteous in all the works which He does, though we have not obeyed His voice.

    15 "And now, O Lord our God, who brought out Forefathers out of Europe to the great land of America, just as for Israel Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and made Yourself a name, as it is this day—we have sinned, we have done wickedly!

    16 "O Lord, according to all Your righteousness, I pray, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away from Your city, Washington DC, and our whole nation, America, as with Your city Jerusalem, Your holy mountain; because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Washington D.C., as with Jerusalem and Your people are a reproach to all those around us.

    17 "Now therefore, our God, hear the prayer of Your servant, and his supplications, and for the Lord’s sake cause Your face to shine on Your sanctuary, which is headed for desolation. 18 "O my God, incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see our desolations, and the nation which is called Christian, as by Your name; for we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of Your great mercies.

    19 "O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your nation, and Your people are called by Your name."
