A Prayer for Our Nation
by Kenneth Copeland
Heavenly Father, I come before You in the Name of Jesus on behalf of the United States of America. I pray for a shield of divine protection over this country and for insight and uncovering of all terrorist activity. I rebuke the spirit of fear and terror. It has no place here.
Father, You said the heart of the king is in Your hand, and You turn it whichever way You choose. So I ask You to direct the heart and mind of President Obama. I pray for the wisdom of God, that he makes the right decisions. I also pray for his divine strength and health. I set myself in agreement with him that we receive these things, in Jesus' Name.
I give thanks that our government is upon Jesus' shoulder, and I hold up in prayer all the men and women in positions of authority over us in any way. I pray that the Spirit of the Lord rests upon them and a hedge of protection surrounds them.
I believe skillful and godly wisdom has entered into their hearts, and knowledge is pleasant to them. Discretion watches over them. Understanding keeps them and delivers them from the way of evil and from evil men. Lord, I believe You give them revelation of Your perfect will, and all their decisions are divinely directed by You.
I thank You, Lord, for bringing change to the politics of our nation. Thank You for changing the voices of influence to speak in agreement with Your Word. I ask You to send laborers, filled with the spirit of wisdom and might, to surround our leaders with godly counsel and insight. I also ask You to remove from positions of authority those who stubbornly oppose righteousness, and replace them with men and women who will follow You and Your appointed course for America.
Your Word declares that "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." I receive Your blessing and declare with my mouth that Your people dwell safely in this land and they prosper abundantly.
You said in Your Word that if Your people would turn from their wicked ways and pray, You would heal the land. So Lord, I repent for the sins of this nation. I ask that You would cleanse us and forgive us for idolatry, witchcraft and every kind of disobedience. Grant this nation a spirit of repentance and cover us with Your mercy. As we turn back to You, Lord, I believe the land is being healed.
As we enter the final hours of the last days, I ask for the spirit of faith, the working of miracles, for signs, wonders, gifts, and demonstrations of the Holy Spirit and power to be in strong operation. Let believers in the United States and in every land be unified to stand strong by faith in Jesus, the Anointed One and His Anointing, that Your glory may be revealed in all the earth.
I thank You that the good news of the gospel is published in our land, and Your Word prevails and grows mightily in the hearts and lives of the people. I declare that Jesus is Lord over these United States!
Thank You, Lord, that these requests come to pass. I believe I receive, in Jesus' Name. Amen!
In His Love,
Pastor Tim Burt
