Hear our prayer, O LORD, give ear to our supplications!
In Your faithfulness and righteousness, answer us, Your servants, and withhold judgment—for, in Your sight, no one living is righteous.
These last 21-1/2 months, the enemy has persecuted our souls. They have tried their best to crush our lives to the ground and make us dwell in darkness like those who are dead. They have overwhelmed our spirits and distressed our hearts. LORD, yes, we are sinful people! But if we feel this grieved about the incessant evil in our nation, surely this grieves You a hundredfold.
So, Father God, we humble ourselves before Your throne and REPENT for our own sin and the sin of our country—our proud looks, lying tongues, and the shedding of innocent blood. We repent for the hearts that devise wicked plans, the feet swift in running to evil, false witnesses, and those who sow discord. We remember the days of old, meditate on all Your works, and find our soul longing for You, like a thirsty land.
O LORD our God, hear our prayer, forgive our sins, and heal our land. Answer us speedily before our spirits fail. Do not hide Your face from us but cause us to hearken to Your lovingkindness—for in You we trust. Cause us to know the way in which we should walk and vote as we lift our souls to You.
Deliver us from our enemies, teach us to do Your will, and lead us in the land of uprightness. Revive us, O LORD, for Your name’s sake, for in You, in Your good, good Spirit, we take shelter.
Sovereign LORD, in Your mercy, cut off the enemy. Destroy those who afflict our souls. And please bring your servants, along with America, out of this evil.
In the mighty name of Jesus, we pray, amen.
 Prayer based on Psalm 143
