Only God can heal us or a Nation. He hears and answers prayer. We in turn need to believe to receive.
If and when we truly have repented our sin we need to look up in faith for the answer to come. At times we are all guilty of leaning to our own understanding and get into the murky waters of depression, worry and fear. Our answer is to pray for God’s help again!
A Prayer for Us and Our Nation
Pick us up out of the murky place.
Clean our dirty garments of worry that disgrace.
Fear and anxiety have muddied our mind;
Lord with Your help we can leave them behind.
Heaviness of heart has dimmed our vision too;
Fill us with the joy that only comes from You.
Improve our outlook deep inside;
Fan our faith’s fires; keep our dreams alive.
Chase away the clouds of darkness with the light of Your favor,
For, depression must flee when God’s presence is savored.
Dig us out of the pit of self-pities trap.
Set our face to purpose that keeps us on track.
Lord with You we are able to soar to great heights.
In You we are able to cause and to be a delight.
Our life is as a living sacrifice offered for Christ our King.
As You rescue us again, only You cause our hearts to sing.
2 Chronicles 7:14-15
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place
