Another Prayer

Lord God,

We thank You for the election results. And now we ask that You do not allow us to be boastful or vain, as if by some method we accomplished something great.

Rather, Lord, we know that YOU called these results beforehand, and that You are still sovereign.

Father, we throw ourselves on Your mercy, and ask You to keep Your hands on us as we move into this (unknown to us) future which You have called into being.

Lord, please help us as we attempt to bind the wounds which have divided us as a nation, and lead us in every decision, every policy, every change.

And please keep and protect our President-Elect as he prepares to lead us.

In Jesus' name we pray,
Amen.



I just want to remind us of God's great mercy and love for this nation and His promise to us in 2 Chronicles.  There have been, and even at this moment there are, many, many believers who have stood in the gap in repentant prayer for our nation.

Now it is time we move to the next step, take our place as His sons and daughters, using the authority given us by God and decree and declare the turning and changing of  our nation back to God and our founding father's covenant with Him.

We decree and declare: America IS even NOW turning back to God and  reestablishing her covenant with Him.  We declare, according to 2 Chronicles 7:14:  because we, God's people have called upon Him in humble repentance, seeking His face and calling upon His mercy, that He has heard from Heaven and is healing our land.
