A Prayer for America

May 13th, 2012

Create in me a clean heart, O God.

Renew a loyal spirit within me.

Do not banish me from your presence and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me.

Restore to me the joy of your salvation and make me willing to obey you.

Psalms 51:10-12

Lord,

Turn your face back to the U.S. and give us favor.

Give Christian the strength and encouragement to stand up and turn the tide of the insanity that envelops us.

Let us stand for truth, do what is right, and to be the change and a positive force in our communities.

Let us come together where we are and be spots of light among the darkness.

Let those spots join together to become a pool, the pools a sea, and the sea an unstoppable wave.

Reclaim our nation.

Change our hearts.

Renew our minds.

Be bold.

Away with your noisy hymns of praise.

I will not listen to the music of your harps.

Instead I want to see a might flood of justice, an endless river of righteous living.

Amos 5:23-34
