Unity and Peace For Our Nation

First of all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made on behalf of all men.

During this time of upheaval and transition in our nation, let’s remember the power we have been given in prayer. Matthew 16:19 says the Lord will give us the keys to the Kingdom of heaven, and whatever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Whether we realize it or not, as Christians, we hold an executive position in the Kingdom of God.

In business, when you are at the executive level, you have the power to change the course of action for others in the organization. The executives only have this power because it has been given to them from the owner of the company.  Psalms 149:5-9 speaks of this honor we have been given by our Father in Heaven. 

We ask You God, the One who owns the cattle on a thousand hills and holds the universe in Your hand to heal our land. In the name of Your Son, Jesus, we bind every hindering and blinding spirit over those who have an opportunity to come to You today, and loose the Spirit of Truth, that will open their hearts and minds to know Your love for them. We speak freedom from fear, judgment, hatred, and every spirit and form of division. Thank You for Your favor over our nation, and we ask for a renewed outpouring of your Spirit upon us. Please teach us how to walk out Your love on a daily basis, and express it to each other in tangible ways. 

We confess and believe in Your goodness. All power and authority comes from You. Thank You for pursing us and initiating a relationship with us through Your son, Jesus. We put our hope and trust in You alone, and we say, Lord, You are our refuge.
