Prayer for Mercy on a Sinful Nation

 Heavenly Father,

We humbly come before You, lifting up our nation, and acknowledging our collective sins and shortcomings. Lord, we recognize that as a nation, we have turned away from Your righteous ways and have allowed sin to permeate our society. We have drifted from Your truth, and we stand in need of Your mercy and forgiveness.

We confess, Lord, that we have neglected Your commands and pursued our own selfish desires. We have allowed greed, pride, injustice, and immorality to flourish in our land. We have strayed from the values and principles that You have established for us. Forgive us, Lord, for our rebellion and disobedience.

We intercede on behalf of our nation, Lord, asking for Your mercy to be poured out upon us. Have compassion on us, O God, and in Your abundant love, grant us the gift of repentance. Turn our hearts back to You and ignite a revival in our land. Help us to recognize our need for Your guidance, wisdom, and righteousness.

Lord, we pray for our leaders, both in government and in every sphere of influence. Grant them discernment and wisdom to govern justly and righteously. We ask that You would raise up leaders who fear You and seek Your will above all else. May they lead our nation with integrity, humility, and a deep reverence for Your Word.

We pray for the healing of our land, Lord. Heal the divisions and strife that exist among us. Bring unity and reconciliation where there is discord. Help us to love one another as You have commanded us. Restore the fabric of our society and renew a spirit of compassion, justice, and righteousness among us.

Lord, we pray for Your Church, the body of believers in our nation. Empower us to be salt and light in the midst of darkness. Give us boldness and courage to proclaim Your truth with love and grace. May we stand firm in our faith, living as examples of Your transforming power.

In Your mercy, Lord, we ask that You would pour out Your Spirit upon our nation. Ignite a spiritual awakening that leads to genuine repentance and revival. May Your presence saturate every corner of our land, bringing healing, restoration, and a renewed commitment to follow You.

We trust in Your faithfulness, O God. Though we are undeserving, we cling to Your promise that if we humble ourselves, seek Your face, and turn from our wicked ways, You will hear from heaven, forgive our sins, and heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14). We stand on this promise, believing that Your mercy is greater than our sin. In Jesus' name. Amen.
