For The Elected Government To Act Wisely

Loving Lord and judge of all the nations, we come before You in sadness of spirit, knowing that our once great nation has fallen into such a sad and sorry state of repair. Revive us we pray, and restore us, for we have no help, except in You alone.

Guide the governors, legislators, sheriffs and all those men and women that are in senior positions of power, both in local and national government. Give them grace and wisdom to guide our nation back from the path of destruction, and onto the path where God is the One in Whom we place our trust.

Lord, we know that when a nation turns their back on You, they have turned from the path of freedom. We pray that in Your grace and patient loving-kindness, You would bring us back to the place where You are honoured in this land so that we may once again be a nation of free people.

Forgive us for our foolishness and from deviating from the path of truth onto this winding path to destruction. Forgive us that You have not been placed in Your rightful position in the governance of our nations, and may we turn back to Yourself, both individually and nationally. In Jesus' name,
