Join us in today’s devotion and prayer-
Read the Psalm in your favorite version or in the following KJV and then join us in praying below:
85 Lord, thou hast been favorable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7 Show us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.
8 I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps. (KJV)
Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away any justified anger you may have toward us. Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in your promises. Demonstrate your steadfast love for us, O Lord, in the name of your Son Jesus.
For many generations our people have worshipped and served you. Now in our time of need, do not abandon us to the evil wiles of the enemy who would like to destroy us and this nation. Many in this generation have turned their backs on you and your Word; still many in this land call upon your name and serve your Son.
Many lands and leaders would like to destroy our country and take away our freedoms. Particularly our freedom to worship and live according to your teaching.
A people who claim to serve you and live according to a false prophet and another book want to destroy your people in Israel then attack this land also. Rise up O Lord and protect us from such; let Jerusalem live in peace. Please let your blessing flow to our land for recognizing Jerusalem and for continuing to support Israel.
We pray for our leaders that they would always protect Israel from attack and support the words of the prophets of former times. Let your Word go forth to Israel and the Jewish people, let your Kingdom be preached in their midst that they may come to know their true Messiah.
Let your Spirit hover over this land once more and bring repentance from this people; let revival spread from coast to coast from town to city, from state to state. Let your Word be preached in power as never before with signs following; let your Kingdom come down in our midst and become a reality while there is yet day.
Let your Kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
In Jesus name, Amen.
