INDEPENDENCE DAY: A Prayer for Our Nation

On this special day set aside to celebrate the United States of America, I humbly offer this heartfelt prayer of praise, thanksgiving, and intercession!

We thank You for this great nation!

We thank You for the rights and freedoms that come directly from You to seek life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

We thank You that Your hand has been on the course of this nation from conception, through victory and prosperity, through trial and tribulation—and continues even now as You go before us and beside us.


Father God, we stand in the gap to repent for our sins and misdeeds—and pray for your mercy, grace, forgiveness, and deliverance from the evil forces that come against us.

Let our praise and thanksgiving resonate in Heaven and bless You.

Heal our land.

Lift up Your remnant to pursue our assigned callings and be Your vessels here on earth to enact Your will and Your ways.

Embolden us with faith—along with supernatural courage and conviction.

Pour out a fresh anointing and shine Your favor upon us.

May we be surrounded by Your peace and protection as we partner with You.

Help us to be Kingdom leaders in the image of Jesus.

Return us to the Rock to firmly rebuild and restore this nation and pursue the vision that You have always had for us.


Father, bring down the enemy’s strongholds across every mountain and lift up the righteous.

Deliver us from the enemy’s wicked plans and schemes.

We pray may no weapon formed against us prosper and that each and everyone would boomerang on the enemy and his minions.

We pray that those in our government—from federal to state to local, elected or unelected—find You and align with Your ways.

We ask that You convict their hearts with the fear of the Lord and to operate with integrity, honor, and righteousness.

We also pray for their hearts to be convicted to uphold true and equal justice for all.

We ask that all political prisoners and those falsely accused or unfairly punished be released, redeemed, and restored.

We pray for truth to prevail and for all lies, deceptions, and demonic influence to be destroyed.


Today, we celebrate this great nation that was birthed by and continues to be led by Your hand.

Our hearts are heavy as we witness the evil forces coming against us, both from within and without, intending to steal, kill, and destroy—but we lift up our praise and thanksgiving to You in faith that You do hear our cries and know our hearts—and that You will deliver us and restore us to achieve our true destiny!


We ask all of these things in the mighty name of Jesus,


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 will forgive their sin and heal their land. — 2 Chronicles 7:14
