For The Peace Of Our Nations We Pray


     Look around!  Listen to the news.  Watch the news. Our nations are hurting. War, disaster, diseases, and violence threaten to overshadow God's love for humanity and His blessing upon us. We praise the Lord for His blessings.  We cry to the Lord for His intervention.

     The Bible reveals that God intervenes in the affairs of nations.  "If they pray to me and repent and turn away from the evil they have been doing, then I will hear them in heaven, forgive their sins, and make their land prosperous again" (2 Chronicles 7:14).

     When God intervenes, He uses ordinary people. We may not be assigned huge tasks. But we can play our part to help bring about peace and the righteousness that exalts a nation. "Righteousness makes a nation great; sin is a disgrace to any nation" (Proverbs 14:34).

     We can help to bring about peace and righteousness through prayer. The Apostle Paul wrote, "I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness" (1 Timothy 2:1-2).

     The psalmist exhorted the ancient Israelites to "pray for the peace of Jerusalem" (Psalm 122:6). So too, may we pray for the peace and healing of our nations. God hears us! God hears us when (1) we pray in humility, (2) when we turn from evil ways, (3) and when we seek God.


Lord, we pray today for the peace of our nations.

We ask for Your intervention as we turn to You in confession and repentance.

We praise You for Your blessing and for Your provision.


Prayer for those in authority, all people, and all nations, is both a privilege and a duty.
