Dear God,

I pray for my country, the United States of America. The ‘United States of America,’ such a sweet sounding name; a name that rolls out of my heart like honey. This has been a nation that you have blessed, blessed far beyond that of any nation in history.

But this nation has turned its back on you and has gone the way of sin, secularism and evil. It seems we have been sliding down a steep grade and approaching a cliff, a drop-off, and we can’t stop. It seems we are headed for a fall into an unimaginable abyss of economic and moral ruin.

Lord, I ask that you hold back the forces of evil, the evil of terrorism, abuse of power, abortion, sexual perversion, willful ignorance and greed. Grant to us once again, stability in your grace. Grant us equilibrium and peace. Help us to learn to follow the only commandment you ever really gave us: to believe in you, to love you, and love one another.

In the Name of Jesus Christ and for the sake of my country, I ask this.
