I read it this morning in the Bible and turned it upward in prayer for our nation! Psalm 85:1-9 Will you join me in making it your prayer today?
“You showed favor to Your land, O LORD; you restored the fortunes of Your people! You forgave the iniquity of Your people and covered all their sins! You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger. Restore us again, O God our Savior, and put away Your displeasure toward us! … Revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You! Show us Your unfailing love, O LORD, and grant us Your salvation! I will listen to what God the LORD will say. He promises peace to His people, His saints— but let them not return to folly! Surely His salvation is near those who fear Him, that His glory may dwell in our land.” (Adapted for prayer from Psalm 85:1–9 NIV)
Yes, I know it was originally written about the nation of Israel… But, O Lord, fulfill it for the nation I love – fulfill in for America!
