Let’s begin to apply the scriptures and pray for our country to heal and overcome all crisis

The All-Powerful God:

“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” (1 John 5:14-15).

Dear God,

Thank you for your grace over our dear country. I appreciate that you’re always ready to save us when we run to you for help. I am glad that you have assured me that the plan you have for your country is good, blessings, and not destruction and death. I pray that you heal our land and make us prosper in the mighty name of Jesus. Deliver us from the snares of the devil and destroy all of his plans. I pray for our president and every other member of his cabinet: grant them the wisdom; knowledge and understanding to come up with plans to lead the affairs of our nations rightly. I come against every power of the evil ones against our country in Jesus name.

Interceding For Mercy:

“And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.” (Ezekiel 22:30).

Heavenly Lord,

I acknowledge the iniquities on behalf of our country and confess that we have sinned greatly against you and most times we have been cut short from your blessings; I humbly pray that you forgive us our sins and stretch your peaceful hands over us. I pray that your spirit begins to abide with us and guide the nook and cranny of our country. Grant our leaders strength and power to never get tired nor give up on sailing the ship of our country to a glorious destination. Amen.

Enlarge Our Country:

“He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again. He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way.” (Job 12:23-25).

Dear God,

You are the God that increases the nations who seek your face and believe in you and debases the ones who act haughty towards you. I pray that you enlarge your coast and guide us towards the right path again. I pray that you are merciful unto us and not let us wander in this turmoil and suffering. You promised us in your word that you shall heal our land and afflictions to not rise against us. I, therefore, make a reality of this and seek that you reduce every tension in every corner of our country in the mighty name of Jesus. Do not chastise us in your anger and make your face gracious unto our country. Amen.

Under The Mighty Wing Of God:

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Dear Lord,

I thank you because your name still works wonders when we call on you. I, therefore, humble before your throne of grace today and confess that our country has a lot of ailments, and only you can heal us and uphold us under your shadow. Lord, in your infinite mercy; heal our country in Jesus’ name. I pray for your spirit of righteousness to pour out into every citizen and that they begin to do your will in the mighty name of Jesus. I commit before you; all the four corners of this nation and its air, land, and water should receive your bliss and protection from now on, and may we have the full course to glorify your name. Amen.

Restoration To Prosperity:

“For thus says the LORD: When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will visit you, and I will fulfill to you my promise and bring you back to this place. For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a  hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you.” (Jeremiah 29:10-12).

Heavenly Father,

I am glad that although the crisis is disturbing, we have not come to destruction and there is still hope for us through your great power. I am glad in your word that you promised our country that your plans for us are to give us a bright future and hope and that you shall hear us when we pray to you. Lord please, make true your promise and bring our country back to peace and order. I pray that you purify our nation with your divine blood and give us the wisdom and knowledge to forever acknowledge you and seek your face in Jesus ‘ name.
