“Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” – (Jer 29:7)
Today we devote to pray for our nation. God is able to cause a river of peace and prosperity over our nation.
The Lord commanded the Israelites to pray for the peace of the land of Babylon – their oppressors, because the peace of that land would be their peace. Likewise the peace of the land we dwell is our peace. Let us pray for our country.
Jesus said people should always pray and not to give up (Luke 18:1). So don’t get weary of praying for our country. That’s one sure way to get the kind of changes you desire in your nation.
The Bible says Elijah prayed that there would be no rain, and the earth was without rain for three and a half years. He prayed again and the heavens supplied rain.
For us to change things in our country, we have to pray the kind of prayer Elijah prayed: earnest, heartfelt and continued prayer (Jam 5:16).
You don’t just make such kind of prayers once and stop, you continue seriously and earnestly, until you achieve your purpose for praying.
Pray in a heartfelt, continued manner for the government officials, lawmakers, and decision makers, that the Lord will grant them the wisdom and courage to do what’s right and necessary.
Pray that their leadership will influence the furtherance of the Gospel at all times.
Don’t give up praying for our country. Continue in earnest prayer until we achieve our desired objective in prayer!
