A PRAYER FOR THE NATIONS TO THE LORD

A PRAYER FOR THE NATIONS TO THE LORD
 
  • If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
 
  • We have prayed a lot about our needs, problems, or struggles we face every day, but what about praying for our nation? Is praying for the nation one thing that we should do, or is this only meant for those with a special calling as intercessors?
 
  • Seeing the condition of the Israelites who reaped the consequences of their actions, God was waiting for someone to stand up for the nation before Him. This means that God is waiting for someone who will cry out to Him. God asked the Israelites to humble themselves, repent, fast, turn, and cry out to God.
  • Each of us is called by God to be an intermediary or a liaison between our nation and God. We can read the news through the media and know what is happening in our nation. What do you feel when you see that situation? For example, when a bad thing happens/there is injustice/some sins and transgressions are done by the people living in our country. Will we keep quiet?
 
  • Do we believe that God can restore everything?
  • Before asking for repentance and change to happen in our nation, we must first come to confess our transgressions and turn to God as representatives of our nation. Let us seek God’s approval, let us be fair, love one another, and act righteously before God and everyone, because the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
  • It is not about how long you pray. It’s about who is praying.
