Prayer for the Nations

This is lifted from my Church Bulletin for today. I thought the essence of this prayer that the change should begin in us for nation's healing should give us some thoughts -

Prayer for the Nations

If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face,
And turn from their wicked ways, Then will I hear from heaven,
and forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14

Dear Lord,
How desperately our land needs Your healing.
Lord, I see wickedness spreading across it,
and I wonder how this happened.
A solution seems so far away.

The solution You've outlined in this promise is not without personal cost.
You call on me to humble myself, seek You in prayer,
and turn from my wicked ways.
Today, I confess that I have many sins to my credit and not much good.
I turn from sin. Please bring me forgiveness and healing.

May I be a part of my hurting country's healing, Lord.
Turn our leaders and people toward You -
perhaps by using our testimonies for You today.

In Jesus' name I pray. Amen
