A Call to Prayer: Seeing The Condition of Our Nation
One thing I observed while in Washington, D.C., for the Kavanaugh hearings was the emphasis on abortion coming from those on the left. It was enlightening. I expected the subject to come up, but it became obvious early on that this issue was their paramount concern. Overwhelmingly so. The right to abort babies was mentioned or alluded to by the Democrats ten to one over any other subject. It is unfathomable to me that we have come to a point in America’s history where the number one goal and concern of half her leadership—and perhaps half of her population—is the right to abort babies! Sadly, however, it has come to this. Clearly, this is demonic. The resulting bloodshed of 60 million innocent babies has caused our land to become defiled. This, in turn, has allowed a spirit of violence and death to rule over us (refer to Psalm 106:38; Isaiah 59:7).
Though this is America’s true condition, it does not have to be the final word. A turnaround has begun and if the praying church continues its appeal to heaven, the Lord, who delights in mercy, will save us (Micah 7:18-19). I believe America is about to experience the greatest revival and restoration in her history…again, if we continue to pray.
“There is no God like you. You take away people’s guilt. God will forgive his people who survive. He will not stay angry with them forever, because he enjoys being kind. He will come back and comfort us again. He will throw all our sins into the deep sea.” (Micah 7:18-19; ERV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Psalm 106: 38 says, “They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood.” Identificationally repent that this nation, largely because of the actions of our Supreme Court, has opened the door to the slaughter of more than 60 million babies. Weep and cry out for this death structure to end!
- The Word in Isaiah 59:7 says, “Their feet rush into sin; they are swift to shed innocent blood. They pursue evil schemes; acts of violence mark their ways.” This is the condition of America right now – today! Intercede between what is and what ought to be!
- Pray Micah 7:18-19, above.
- Declare, “Revival and turnaround is coming to America!”
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, in Psalm 106: 38 Your Word says, “They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood.” We have sinned before You as a nation, God. We have not honored life, as You commanded us to. We have murdered the most vulnerable among us and our hands, as a nation, are covered in blood. Please forgive us. Forgive us and give us governmental leaders and judges that will stop this death culture! Lord, look! Isaiah 59:7 is the condition of so many of our leaders that love abortion and stop their ears from hearing You. “Their feet rush into sin; they are swift to shed innocent blood. They pursue evil schemes; acts of violence mark their ways.” We appeal to Heaven to save us, save these leaders, and set our nation, once again, on a course of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. There is no God like you. You take away people’s guilt. You will forgive Your people who survive. You will not stay angry with us forever, because You enjoy being kind. You will come back and comfort us again. You will throw all our sins into the deep sea. We believe this, Jesus, and put all of our trust in You, alone. Amen.
God will forgive us and save our land!
