|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 heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
Prayer of Preparation - Recite the 91st Psalm daily.
Psalm 91: (NIV)
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
Father, as I commit to praying for my nation and my brothers and sisters in Christ,
I ask first that you forgive me of all unrighteousness. Lord, search my heart and
renew in me a right spirit. I thank you Father, for who you are in my life and I
acknowledge that I am depending on you.
Lord, as I commit myself to fasting and praying for my country, please protect me
and mine from the wiles of the evil one. Place a hedge of protection around us and
keep us safe from hurt harm and danger. Keep me strong in my commitment and
let me not grow weary in well doing.
Lord, I put on your whole armor today and everyday. Cover me and mine with the
precious Blood of Jesus and keep us from temptation. Feed us daily and meet the
needs that will arise. Keep us rooted and grounded in you as we lean not upon our
own understanding. We thank you in advance for the lives and circumstances that
will change as a result of this time of prayer and fasting. We thank you for each
battle won and for the ultimate victory.
We thank you now for answered prayers for your Word says that when we ask
you hear and when you hear you answer.
In the name of Jesus we pray...Amen.
