PRAYER FOR AMERICA: Father,
You have been so gracious to us,
Answering our deep heartache
In a way that cannot be denied.
In Your mercy and goodness,
You have spared us from the destruction
Of those who mock Your name
And champion darkness and depravity.
Thank you, Father, for intervening
And for giving us another chance to be
The people You have called us to be.
By answering our prayers, You have provided us
With the opportunity to walk in the light,
Free from the constraints of those who mock You
And support the evil of this world’s god.
Now that we have bowed our collective knees to You,
Give us the wisdom and courage to stand and move forward,
Championing the rights of all, including the unborn.
Give us the strength to stand firmly against those
Who hate You and Your ways. Let us be kind
And forgiving, while making certain to hold each citizen
Accountable to the Rule of Law, regardless of who they are.
You still have a purpose for the United States of America,
And we humbly ask You to make Your will known to us.
Your mercy and graciousness are boundless.
On this day, when righteousness has been victorious,
We want to acknowledge You as the Author
Of our great victory over the arrogantly corrupt.
Without Your active intervention, all would have been lost.
We know this; help us to never forget it,
