Prayer for the United Kingdom
The #UKprayer by Samuel Jonathan
Praying for our country is so important
BLESSED IS THE NATION WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD
Give thanks to the LORD for He is good and His love endures forever. Had the LORD not been on our side, what would have been the lot of our country? Therefore, PRAISE awaits You, O God, in the United Kingdom!
From the Giant Causeway to the Ben Nevis and from the flow of Lake Windermere to the flow of River Thames, Your handy work manifests beyond measure! The display of splendour reflects and represents Your infinite wisdom and kindness. Truly, You alone are God.
Despite Your goodness and faithfulness, we have sinned against You. Our iniquity abounds in multitudes and that of our forefathers is of no small magnitude. We repent of our sins, O Lord. Please forgive us and restore us because Righteousness exalts a Nation! Therefore, the hearts of our children shall turn to Thee. Men and women, young and old, shall align their lives with The Cross. Once again, the LORD of Hosts shall choose Britain as His dwelling and Northern Ireland as His resting place. The United Kingdom shall be restored unto God and we shall be His people.
We lift up our eyes to You, to You whose throne is in Heaven. Our trust is in You for it is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man. We are surrounded on every side by the fear of terror and those who want to harm us, but in the Name of the LORD, we cut them off.
From afar, they continually plot evil against us and even dwell among us as neighbours! Let Your mighty hand confound them and foil their evil plans. As the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean surround us, let Your shield defend and protect us, O LORD. Preserve us according to Your promise. Let Your greatness be restored to Great Britain and the United Kingdom become an extension of Your kingdom.
You are our God and we shall remain Your people, through Jesus Christ our Lord, AMEN.
