A Prayer to Heal Our Land
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
Heal our land.
You are our only hope.
We’ve tried to fix our problems with our strength.
The unity and reconciliation we seek only comes from You.
Start in us individually and move us collectively.
Break our hearts for what breaks Yours.
Move us to a posture of listening rather than arguing.
Move us to a posture of humility rather than pride.
Move us to a posture of gentleness rather than brashness.
Move us to a posture of prayer and trust rather than our understanding.
You have our attention.
We mourn with those who mourn.
We weep with those who weep.
Give us a vision for the gospel at this time.
It’s good news for the brokenhearted.
Let the Church rise up to fulfill the calling You have given us.
The healing we desire starts on our knees.
So Lord, heal our land.
Do what only You can do.
Guide us into what You have called us to do.
May we experience the resurrection power in new ways.
Our hope is in You.
