Prayer of Repentance For The Nation

©Abundant Waters Ministries, Inc. All rights reserved no parts of this content may be reproduced without the authors sole permission

Dear God, I pray for this land and country America, stand beside her and forgive her for all her sins. Forgive America for the many laws of iniquity that we have passed against you. Forgive America oh God for not allowing our precious children to pray freely in our schools. Forgive us oh God for destroying the trillions of unborn babies that we slaughter every year. Forgive us oh God for taking the ten commandments out of the court houses forgive America oh God for coming against righteous holy leaders who take a stand in the name of God to stand again all those who are evil. And above all God forgive this land and country of American for its idols and idol worshippers. Forgive us for worshipping people and things above you.


And Lord God help this land of ours, and help the many child abusers and sex offenders to come to repentance. Our God we pray as a nation right now that you would help America and guide her back to what is right and holy. Ooh Lord we ask that you would have mercy on this land that we call America and please oh God let your hand of judgement not come down on us. Oh God let it not be as those days when there was no King in Israel: and every man did that which was right in his own eyes. Forgive America we pray oh God for the many men who have left the natural use of a woman and burn in their own lust to lay with another man. Forgive us oh God for the many women who have left the natural use of a man and desire to lay with another woman. Oh take our hands now we pray thee and guide us back to you. That we may find grace and mercy in your sight oh God for it is only you who we now seek to please.

We thank thee oh God for how you have suffered long with America. Forgive us oh God for the many lies we have told. And for taking things that did not belong to us, forgive us for being a thief on our jobs. Stealing time by never showing up on time, forgive us oh God for helping ourselves to the many office supplies we have put in our purses and walked away as if it belonged to us. Forgive all of us oh God who enjoys all the sins of the flesh, who enjoy drunkenness, and elicit drug use of every kind trying to forget our troubles.

All we need to do as a nation is turn our face to you and you will forgive this land we call America and heal it from its disease. And for this oh great God Jehovah we thank thee for allowing us as a nation to pray this prayer of repentance in the name of Jesus thou great son of King David. Now Lord I ask that you will fill me with your sweet Holy Spirit fill me with the Holy Ghost fire and never, ever, ever let me be the same again. Amen, amen, amen, and amen!

    Adrienne2: What a beautiful prayer! AMEN! I'm certain God will answer this one, but first one has to realize that simply saying one is sorry is not an act of true repentance to offer to God. To be repentant truly repentant, one must try and do something to correct the problem or situation.

    God will not forgive one who sins unless he repents.

    Ezekiel 18:4

    Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

    We can only pray for the sinner to repent and when he repents, God will forgive him.

    Ezekiel 18:20

    The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son.
