Father God we come boldly before your throne of grace with thanksgiving lifting our nation in prayer so that your people may be able to live quiet and peaceable lives in all godliness and honesty. We thank you for showering us with your abundant blessings and for making this nation great in all the earth. Your word says, “blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” We realize that the only reason why we have faired so well and have been prosperous, is because in the past, you have been the God of this nation and the people have honored and and served you. But now, our nation as a whole have left you their first love in honoring and serving you and have turned our back on you and have allowed sin and abomination throughout our government and nation. As a result of that, it has been manifested in the lives of the people.
Father, we ask that you would forgive our disobedience, rebellion, sin, unrighteousness and ungodliness. Forgive us for permitting and even endorsing abominations in our land which you despise and hate. We pray not only for your forgiveness, but also your deliverance from these things, in Jesus name, amen.
