Prayer For Nation Scriptures

Father grant us the grace to live and conduct ourselves honourably and becomingly as in the day, not in revelling and drunkenness, not in immorality and debauchery, not in quarrelling and jealousy.

Lord teach us the way of peace in our goings as nations, make our crooked paths straight so that when we go in them w may know peace. Lord, we pray that your thoughts and plans for us as nations, for peace and welfare, may be established on earth.
Grant us the ability as nations to follow after the things which make for peace, and things which cause us to build up one another as nations. Lord may your peace rule in the hearts of men all over the world, let it mount guard over hearts and minds in Jesus' Name. Amen.

O Lord. We have violated Your right to rule that which You alone created. So we acknowledge that You alone have the right to show compassion and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against You and have not obeyed Your voice, nor have we walked in Your teachings which You set before us through Your servants, the prophets.

The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth; for the Lord has spoken: Children have I reared and brought up, but they have rebelled against me. The ox knows its owner, and the donkey its master's crib, but Israel does not know, my people do not understand. Ah, sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, offspring of evildoers, children who deal corruptly! They have forsaken the Lord, they have despised the Holy One of Israel, they are utterly estranged. Why will you still be struck down? Why will you continue to rebel? The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. ...

And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace. Jeremiah 29:7 KJV

Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
