7 Powerful Prayers for the Healing of Our Land

Prayer Against the Prince of Darkness:

Dear Heavenly Father

Thank you for blessing our nation with abundance and freedom. Today I am petitioning you to intercede in our troubled nation. In 2 Chronicles 7:14, you tell us, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” Lord, I am humbly asking that you heal our land.”

The Prince of Darkness has a strong foothold in our land, but we know he is nothing compared to you and your power. I am calling on you to put those who love and honor you and your Word in power and positions of authority. As in the Old Testament, you removed corrupt kings and rulers and put those in authority who would lead the people in righteousness. By faith, we call our local, state, and national leaders saved, sanctified, and filled with your Holy Spirit. Lord, that is my prayer today.

I am also crying out for unity in our nation. The division among your creation is so destructive. My prayer is for a Great Awakening and Revival in our land. I pray for your people to make peace with one another and strive for a common goal of harmony and worship of you.

In Jesus’ glorious name, we praise you for healing our land.

Ephesians 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”

Prayer for a Spiritual Awakening in My Community:

James 5:16 “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”

Heavenly Father,

You know our country is as divided as ever. With a heavy heart, I come to you asking for your intervention. I confess that we have turned our backs on you and have not always followed your ways. This is evident throughout the country.

I ask for your forgiveness and grace. I pray that you would pour out your Spirit on our nation and bring a spiritual awakening to the hearts of your people. Let revival spread like wildfire. Lord, there is a problem in many of our churches. They have turned away from preaching the pure Word of God. I pray that those churches remove the blinders to find the error of their ways. Remove those in authority and raise church leaders who want to honor your inerrant Word of God. Show the members of those churches that they are under false teachings. Put a desire in their hearts to study your Word and learn for themselves the inerrant gospel.

Lord, we pray that you will heal the wounds of division and strife that have plagued our country. Bring unity and reconciliation among everyone, regardless of race, political views, or socioeconomic status. Let us find common ground and live peaceably with our brothers and sisters.

I pray for wisdom and discernment for our leaders that they will seek your will and lead with integrity. Lord, remove any leaders who don’t desire what is best for the citizens and who aren’t working toward bringing the citizens together. I pray for peace and justice to prevail in our land.

Lord, I trust in your promise that if we humble ourselves and pray, you will hear from heaven and heal our land.

I pray all these things in the name of Jesus, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

Prayer for Unity in America:

1 Corinthians 1:10 “I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.”

Lord

I come to you with a heavy heart. The population in America is so fractured. There is so much division within your believers as well as non-believers. I know your heart must be heavy. I come before you today to pray for unity in America. I know that our country has been divided by politics, race, and other issues, and I ask for your help in bringing us together.

I pray that our leaders, elected and appointed, will have the wisdom to work together for the common good. May our communities be places of love and understanding where people of all races and backgrounds can unite peacefully. Let the Christian churches all be filled with the Holy Spirit and become a catalyst of peace in America. Bring back the days of revival without fearing offending people with the Word of God. I know the only hope for America is to turn to Jesus. I bind the works of Satan as he roams to steal, kill, and destroy. Make him powerless in his efforts to continue the division in our country.

7 Powerful Prayers for the Healing of Our Land

I ask that you guide us to reach out to those who are different from us, listen to their stories, and learn from their experiences. Help us to see each other as your children, created in your image, and worthy of love and respect.

Let there be healing and reconciliation for those who have been hurt by division and strife. I ask for your comfort for those who have lost loved ones to violence or injustice.

Romans 14:19 “So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.”

Lord, I know that only you can unite our nation. I ask for your grace and guidance as we work towards that goal. May I be an agent of your peace and love in the world.

In your holy name, we pray,

Amen.

1 Peter 3:8 “Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.”

Prayer to Protect America Against Its Enemies:

Psalm 91:1-16 “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, …”

Dear Heavenly Father

America is experiencing an attack on its very foundations. Our forefathers came to this country to be able to practice their Christian beliefs and to have new freedom by their design, based on the rights given in the Bible. Today, all of that is being erased and challenged. I come to you today to pray for America and the destruction some people and countries are trying to inflict on America.

Father, I love my country. I ask that you protect it against the assault on Christian values. This assault is coming from inside and outside the church. The enemies are doing all they can to destroy our education system, the family you designed, and a culture of Christian principles. I will not fear them but pray for them. Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

I pray for America’s safety against any country planning to harm my land. Turn their hearts away from Satan’s plans. Lord, you know most citizens of all countries want a life of peace where they can enjoy life and raise their children without the threat of war. May the leaders of the countries who are our enemies be touched by the power of the Holy Spirit. Show them their ways and turn them to Jesus.


Lord, I pray for the children of America and throughout the world. So many are being affected by the evil ones. Your Word is very clear on the heart you have for children. Psalm 127:3 “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” I pray for their protection in war-torn areas and the classrooms of America. The assault on America is widespread from the classroom to across the globe. I pray you to put a hedge of protection around these little ones.

In Jesus’ glorious name, we praise you for healing our land.

2 Timothy 4:18 “The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.”

Prayer to Heal Our Land of All Strongholds:

2 Corinthians 10:4 “For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.”

Lord, I haven’t given up on hope for America. Your grace has abounded for a long time because I see a nation following the path of Sodom and Gomorrah. I come to you today to break all strongholds on America. Ephesians 6:12 tells us we are fighting against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Lord, I pray you pull down all spiritual forces attempting to destroy America.

May America return to its foundation as a country built on political and religious freedoms. Lord, remove all forces attempting to destroy our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Keep your people safe to live the life you intended. I bind all forces of demonic power. I stand on Your Word as sharper than any 2-edged sword. Even though we see the work of the Evil Once on every corner of America, I know You are the Victor. That’s where I get my peace.

I pray the blood of Jesus wipes away every demonic stronghold. I ask all these things in the precious name of Jesus.

Amen

Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.”

Prayer to Stop All Violence in My Country:

Isaiah 60:18 “Violence shall no more be heard in your land, devastation or destruction within your borders; you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.”

Faithful Father,

I come to you today with a heavy heart, filled with concern for the state of my country. Everywhere I look, there seems to be violence and unrest, and it breaks my heart to see so many people suffering. Lord, I pray for those business owners who have lost their businesses due to riots and unrest. Give them a financial blessing so they can live a fruitful life.

Please, I pray that you would intervene in this situation and end all violence in my country. Bring peace where there is conflict, love where there is hate, and healing where there is hurt. Help us unite as a nation and work towards a brighter future for all. I lift all the Christian churches; give them a burning desire to take the gospel to their areas. May the Holy Spirit sweep the cities and nation, convicting hearts of the need for Jesus.

I ask that you protect the vulnerable and bring justice to those who have been wronged. Give us the strength and courage to stand up against violence and to be agents of peace and reconciliation in our communities.

I believe that with your help, we can overcome even the most difficult challenges. So I entrust this prayer to you, knowing you can do more than we could ever ask or imagine. You gave your Son for all; Jesus is the only hope for my country.

Thank you for hearing my prayer and working in ways beyond our understanding. May your peace reign in my country, now and always.

Amen.

Romans 14:10-13 Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God; for it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” So then each of us will give an account of himself to God. Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.

Prayer to Restore the Economy of My Country:

Hebrews 13:5 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Faithful Father,

You are watching how people in my country struggle to make ends meet. It seems the global economy has taken a hit that affected people worldwide. I come to you today with a heavy heart, filled with concern for the state of the economy in my country. Everywhere I look, there seems to be hardship and financial struggles, and it breaks my heart to see so many people suffering.

Lord, my focus is not on the love of money. It is on the love of people…people you and I care about. Please, I pray that you would intervene in this situation and help restore my country’s economy. Bring prosperity where there is poverty, abundance where there is scarcity and stability where there is uncertainty. Help us unite as a nation and work towards a brighter economic future for all.


Bless our leaders with wisdom and discernment as they make decisions that impact the economy. Guide them to make choices that benefit everyone, not just a select few. Restore the finances people have lost due to this economic downturn.

I believe that with your help, we can overcome even the most difficult challenges. So I entrust this prayer to you, knowing you can do more than we could ever ask or imagine. Philippians 4:19 “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

Thank you for hearing my prayer and working in ways beyond our understanding. May your abundance and prosperity reign in my country, now and always.

Amen.

Psalm 112:3 “Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.”
