Sunday Prayer from Sharon, Oklahoma

Father, We pray for our great nation. "one nation under God" Founded by your providential will...........a nation that has grown and prospered in spite of our sin, and rebellion.

We pray that your "people who are called by your name will humble themselves, and pray, and seek your face, and turn from their wicked ways, and that you will hear us, forgive our sin, and will heal our land". II Chron.7: 14

We pray for our leaders who want to uphold our constitution as it was intended by our forefathers. That you will protect them and keep them "under the shadow of the Almighty"

That we once again will unashamedly call on you for our wisdom, strength, forgiveness, cleansing.

That we will once again believe that you are fighting our battles as you did for the Israelites in th Old Testament.

That we will call on you to show us our own wickedness outside of Christ, and repent as a nation.

That we will repent for the backsliding of our nation, that you might hear us and forgive us.

That your Word will once again be our guide of what is right and wrong, of what we need and don't need.

That all of our inalienable rights are written in your Word and some are written in "The Declaration of Independence" ie. "that all men (including women and children) have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Our first and most important right and freedom is to worship God.

Our sole purpose, both here and throughout eternity, is to glorify God and to enjoy Him.
We pray that you by your grace will show each of us your plan to glorify your self through us as a nation and individually, and also as the church, your bride. Amen
