Yes. Great prayers!!!
We pray for our own healing and health. It’s a good time to step up the prayer for the nation.
J. Lee Grady shared these four prayer requests:
- Pray that the United States will repent for years of racism and cruelty to minorities. Many African Americans feel frustrated and ignored, especially after the senseless murder of George Floyd on May 25. We are grieving for his family and grieving for our own shameful legacy of racial inequality. These kinds of incidents happen almost regularly in our country, and African Americans feel hopelessly vulnerable to mistreatment. The injustice must end.
- Pray that God would restore peace in our streets. Many people began protesting the killing of George Floyd last week. These protests were originally intended to honor Floyd’s life and to call government leaders to enact justice swiftly. Peaceful protests are helpful because they give people an opportunity to express their anger and pain. But other protesters infiltrated the marches who seemed more interested in looting buildings and burning down stores. Entire communities are now traumatized by acts of destruction. This week, Mr. Floyd’s own brother begged protesters to keep the marches peaceful.
- Pray that God will give our leaders wisdom to know how to deal with this crisis. Right now, America is more divided politically than at any point in my lifetime. People are hateful and vindictive. We are still dealing with the coronavirus crisis, but our hate is worse than any virus. We need leaders who will be peacemakers and reconcilers.
- Finally, pray that God will mercifully pour out His Spirit on America again. We are overdue for another spiritual revival. Unless God changes hearts, we have no hope. In the past, America generously took the gospel to the nations and gave hope to the world. Now we are biting and devouring one another, and we are sliding toward a national judgment. Without God’s mercy, we cannot recover from this.
Yes. This are the prayers we need for these days.

Amen! This post definitely shows what we should be praying for in today’s world.
Thanks for sharing. YES, Lord we repent and pray for these things for our nation. Come Holy Spirit. Maranatha!
