With all the political unrest and division in our country today, as Christians, we should be constantly praying for our nation and our government.

Yet, some just don’t know exactly how or what to pray.

Here are four things we can all join together in agreement with and pray for our nation.

  1. PRAY FOR TRUTH AND JUSTICE TO PREVAIL. Pray for our Constitution to be upheld and followed—always. Pray for any hidden information or political motives by either political party to be exposed, and for the truth to be seen and heard. Pray the truths found in scripture regarding justice (Leviticus 19:15, Deuteronomy 16:19, Proverbs 21:15, 1 Corinthians 4:5).
  2. PRAY FOR OUR REPRESENTATIVES. Pray for our elected representatives in the House and the Senate, that they would pursue the Lord for His wisdom in the midst of political uncertainty. Pray that they would serve the Lord in fear and humility, seek out the truth, and be honest and fair in all their decisions (Psalms 2:10-11, Proverbs 11:14, Proverbs 12:22, Proverbs 21:3, James 1:5). 
  3. PRAY FOR OUR PRESIDENT. Pray for President Trump and his family, that no division or strife would come between them. Pray any falsehoods brought against the President would dissipate. Pray that President Trump would humble himself and draw near to the Lord now and all during his term in office (Proverbs 21:1, Romans 13:1, 1 Peter 2:17). 
  4. PRAY FOR NATIONAL UNITY. Pray for peace in our nation despite the growing political divide. Pray for a strengthening of our nation and that Americans unite around America’s founding values. Pray against the spirit of division that seeks to take root in the hearts of Americans. Pray for unity among families, neighbors, co-workers, and all Americans (Romans 12:16, 1 Peter 3:8, 1 John 4:12). 

We ask you to pray these prayers faithfully for our nation (2 Chronicles 7:14). When you do, you are joining with other Christians across the country in prayer. Our prayers are powerful!

Together, let’s remain faithful to what God calls us to and bring the solution of our faith into the public square for the sake of our families, our communities and our nation.
