There is a war going on in the heavens for this country. That is not just a cliché. The consequences of this election will be profound and far reaching. I normally stay out of politics, but we need people to pray.
- Pray that the spirit of antichrist will be defeated.
- Pray that unseen conspiracies will be exposed and shattered.
- Pray that God’s will be done in national and local elections and that God’s purposes be accomplished.
- Pray that God will restore respect for the Judeo-Christian worldview on which this country was founded.
O Judge of all the Earth,
You are not just our Father and our friend; you are the King who determines the rise and fall of nations. We petition you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to restrain the forces of darkness and the powerful delusion that has gone out across this nation. We ask that you defeat the spirit of antichrist and all of the conspiracies that happen in darkness. As we read in Psalm 2, “Why do the nations rage, and the people plot in vain against Yahweh and against His messiah?”
We know that prayer matters. We know that you have plans for America. We ask that your plans will prevail and that the enemy will be unmasked and held to account. We ask that you purify your church and make us more effective for your kingdom in the years ahead.
We do not ask this because we are worthy, for America is guilty of many sins. Both political parties have reasons for shame. Our political history is a sordid mess. Our nation has embraced immorality and been guilty of injustice. We come to you as your remnant to confess the sins of our people and ask for mercy and revival in this nation. Take back our institutions and restore a place of honor for the Bible and your Kingdom at all levels of society.
We step beyond America as well and ask for a restraining order on the evil among the nations – especially the evil done to your people.
We know that your ways are higher than our ways and your thoughts are higher than ours. We also know that what happens in this election will affect the world.
May your kingdom come. May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
Thank you for praying for our nation in this critical hour and for exercising your privilege to vote.
