26 Days of Prayer for America – in God we trust

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil. Then you will have healing for your body and strength for your bones. – Proverbs 3:5-8 (NLT)


I pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. – Ephesians 1:19-21 (NLT)

Prayer: Trust in the Lord with all your heart

Lord God: Your people have always run into roadblocks on the way to freedom; and, sadly, we are prone to discouragement and despair when we do. Truthfully, we’re not a very trusting lot – Americans especially.

+ Lord, help us to trust You with all our hearts for the outcome of this Presidential election.
+ Lord, give us the strength and courage to persevere no matter how difficult the road ahead of us.
+ Lord, fill every believer with resurrection power – the power to overcome dead ends.
+ Lord, do not put Your people to shame – rescue us from the lies and deceit of the evil one.
+ Lord, vindicate our confidence in You by giving America a second chance to trust in You.
+ Lord, make a way back to You for America, where there is no way.

Lord God: May we keep moving in faith and trust You for the outcome. We ask, not for understanding, but for courage to persevere to the end. You are the sovereign Lord, both of this world and the world to come. Thank You for using this election cycle for good, whether we can see it or not. One day it will all be clear in the light of Your love.

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit – one God forever. Amen.
