A nation has its government and occupies a particular territory. It is the land of an individual’s birth, residence, or citizenship. Whatever happens to our country whether positive or negative influences us greatly. When the leadership of the country is a mess, we are also affected by this. When there is a security insurgency in a country, we tend to be the victims. In cases of war, our children are made orphans and homeless, our wives are made widows and are taken in as captives. In cases of famine and drought, the mortality rate is on the increase.
What do we do in the situations like this? What is our responsibility as Christians to our country? This is where we have to pray for our country and bring God into the affairs of our country. Prayer for our country is very crucial and must not be neglected. Here are some inspirational prayers to pray for your country on set apart days..
Most people tend to give up when they feel things aren’t working out for them, or say afraid to fail without even giving it a try, but that will not solve the problem …
Thanksgiving is a daily routine and must be done in any situation our nation finds itself in. In good times we must thank God, in situations that look hopeless we ought to thank Him too. Thanksgiving should not be done only when we find it worth doing, it should be done at all times. Lord Jesus, I thank you for my country. Thank you, Lord, for the administrators in charge of the affairs of the country. Thank you for thus far you have led the citizens. You have protected us from the plans of the enemies and have not allowed the citizens to be out to shame. Thank you, Lord, for every sector in my country. Thank you for your evident blessings upon my county.
As we pray for our country let's not forget to come in repentance for the sins of the nations. From the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, we saw how a whole nation was destroyed because of sin maybe no one was standing in the gap for the nation. We must not forget to ask the Lord to forgive our leaders because they are humans and humans are prone to err. Lord Jesus, I pray you to forgive my nation. We have sinned against you Lord, starting from the administrators down to the citizens. We have gone against your holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done and done those things which we ought not to do. We are sorry Lord and we repent of our trespasses. Have mercy on us miserable offenders. Give us the grace to stay away from sin, Give our leaders the grace to do the right thing irrespective of who wants them to lead the citizens astray. I pray you to give us initiatives on how to develop the country for the betterment of the nation,
Leaders are people in charge of different offices in the country. Leaders are involved in the greater part of the decision-making process. We must pray for our leaders because their downfall means our failure. Lord Jesus, I pray you to bestow your wisdom upon our leaders, help our leaders make the right decisions that will be favorable to their citizens. Protect our leaders and their families as well. Give our leaders the grace to do the right thing in the face of opposition,
The need for protection can not be overemphasized.No one would love to live in a country where our life is not secured. When we find ourselves in danger we feel afraid, stress hormones are released, we feel, and anxiety sets in. Most heavenly Father, I pray you to protect the citizens and leaders of our country. May the plans of our enemies be thwarted. May reasons for war or crises be far from my country and its residents. Oh Lord, send your angels to supersede the affairs of my country,
Sectors in our nations are divided into many groups. We have those in charge of the extraction of raw materials (primary), manufacturers (secondary), and service industries that exist to facilitate the transport, distribution, and sale of goods produced in the secondary sector (tertiary). The different sectors enable the smooth running of the economic activities of the country. Each sector depends on one another that is when any sector fails other sectors struggle hard to meet up the demands. With this, we must pray for the sectors of our nation because the economic state of our nation depends solely on them. Father Lord, we present the different economic sectors of our nation into your hands. We pray against the failure of any sector. We commit the leaders in charge of each sector and we pray you to grant them wisdom to do the right thing. We pray against hyperinflation that may arise as a result of the non-functionality of the sectors.
Prayer for our country is necessary. We must make it a point of duty to remember our nation every day in our devotions. We must pray for the leaders, for our children, pray for peace and smooth running of our country bearing in mind that every good citizen adds to the strength of a nation by prayer.
