I have been thinking about praying for the USA. My consistent thought is that our prayers will impact that country greatly. For the better (from God’s perspective of course).
I know that God is Sovereign and He alone owns every soul. He is Sovereign over all. Every country is His. BUT. I also know that He puts leaders in authority (and removes them when necessary). And I remember reading that a leading US politician once said “we don’t like to be surprised”.
So I’m cautiously thinking about whether the USA wants to be prayed for. Or if any country in particular would like to be prayed for?
Freely I have received, freely I am willing to give…
Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons. Freely (without pay) you have received, freely (without charge) give. – Matthew 10:8
I cannot (yet) raise the (individual) dead, but I DO appear to be able to pray for countries! That is pretty well established by the evidence on this blog. Rain for dry land, peace for warring countries, lower sickness rates, lower murder rates.
Can I pray impartially before an election? Well… I do have opinions on everything and I try to be extremely well read… but my prayers are spiritual and they are totally impartial and a-political. I have my own opinions, but I know I don’t have all the facts available and I don’t take sides – other than God’s side, as revealed in Jesus Christ on His cross when He showed us His nature as He looked at those who were killing Him and He said…
And Jesus prayed, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. – Luke 23:34
If you want to be prayed for, let me know. You might have to struggle through a few layers of nay-sayers… but persist! If you want me to pray for you, I DO want to pray for you!
Would you like to intercede for peace in your country or in the world? All you need to do is get a map of the area you want to pray for and get this list of scriptures (or download the MS Word version) and speak each scripture out over the area you are praying for. It’s as easy as that.
