Pray The Word

When we meditate on God’s Word and become still before Him in our prayer closets, the Holy Spirit will make the Word of God alive to us and open up the Scriptures. Here are a few scriptures that will feed our roots:

  1. Father, we pray for our nation to be like a tree, firmly planted and fed by streams of water which yields its fruit in its season and prospers in whatever it does. (Psalm 1:3)

  2. May our nation be like a vine in Your vineyard, planted by the waters, fruitful and full of branches because of abundant water. (Ezekiel 19:10)

  3. Lord, we pray for our nation to bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit, which is: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control—for against such things, there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)

  4. May our nation be deeply rooted and continually built up in You, Lord. Then our faith will grow strong, and we will overflow with thankfulness. (Colossians 2:7)

  5. We pray for our nation to be like a tree planted by the waters; that does not fear the heat when it comes because its leaves will be green and moist. And it will not be anxious and concerned in a year of drought, nor stop bearing fruit. (Jeremiah 17:8)

  6. Father, we pray that our country will remain in Jesus so that He will remain in our nation. Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself without abiding in the vine, neither can our country bear fruit unless it abides in Christ. (John 15:4)

  7. Lord, we wait upon You because then our strength will be renewed, and we shall mount up with wings like eagles; we shall run and not be weary; we shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

  8. We choose to come out from among the world and unbelievers, and separate ourselves from them, so that You may receive us kindly and treat us with favor. (2 Corinthians 6:17)

  9. Father, we pray that the seed of Your Word in our nation will not fall on rocky ground where there is no depth of soil causing it to dry up, but may Your Word fall on good soil that yields grain. (Matthew 13:5-8)

  10. May we not despise the day of small beginnings, for You, Lord, rejoice when you see Your work begin in our nation. (Zechariah 4:10)

  11. Lord, may we sow according to righteousness and reap according to mercy and loving-kindness. Now is the time to seek You and require Your favor until You rain righteousness and Your gift of salvation upon our nation. (Hosea 10:12)

  12. Since we have been raised with Christ to a new life and share in His resurrection, we aim and seek the rich, eternal treasures that are above, where You are Lord, seated at the right hand of the Father. (Colossians 3:1)

  13. We set our minds and keep them focused on what is above, not on the things that are on the earth. We have died to this world, and our real life is hidden with Jesus. (Colossians 3:2-3)

  14. May Christ, through our faith, dwell in our hearts, and may our nation be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love. (Ephesians 3:17)

  15. Lord, we pray that our country’s people will fix their minds on whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report. (Philippians 4:8)

  16. Father, we will not forget Your law and teachings, but our hearts will keep Your commandments, for then you will add length of days and years to our life. (Proverbs 3:1-2)

  17. May our nation listen to You, Lord, watching daily at Your gates. For whoever finds You, finds life and obtains favor from You. But he who sins against You injures himself and all who hate You, love death. (Proverbs 8:34-36)

  18. Father, we choose not to conform to this world with its superficial values and customs, but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds so that we may discern Your perfect will for our nation. (Romans 12:2)

  19. Lord, You are our Shepherd, we shall not want. You make us lie down in green pastures and lead us beside still and peaceful waters. You restore our souls and lead us in paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake. (Psalm 23:1-3)

  20. Father, we pray that we will sow to the Spirit and reap eternal life and not sow to our flesh—our sinful, worldly ways. (Galatians 6:8)

  21. Your Word says that no good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is known by its own fruit. We pray that our nation will be known for its good fruit. (Luke 6:43-44)

Going Deeper

We are praying for the nations to be fruitful and that they will see God’s Spirit move like never before, but God looks at the roots. The roots will determine the fruits. #Pray4TheWorld is going beneath the surface where God develops the roots. When the nations are truly rooted in Christ, it will experience God’s power.
