Prayers for the Country

“A large portion of our citizens, who will not believe, even on the evidence of facts, that any public evils exist, or are impending. They deride the apprehensions of those who foresee, that licentiousness will prove, as it ever has proved, fatal to liberty.”

— Fisher Ames (1758-1808) Founding Father and framer of the First Amendment to the Constitution

Prayer is one of the most important spiritual weapons against evil. Its the reason satan does not want public prayer, if possible, not even private prayer. He endeavors to prevent people from acknowledging God and asking for His protection and favor.

The thing that people need to understand is that both God and the devil, or demons, cannot do anything unless people cooperate with them. This is a concept that a lot of people do not comprehend. They don’t comprehend it. God cannot do anything . . . on this earth unless man prays, and unless man cooperates. And this is something that is alien to most people. They cannot grasp that concept. They think that because God is so powerful, and he is so sovereign, he can do whatever he wants, at any time he wants, and doesn’t need anybody. . . . God will not intervene. God can intervene; God can intervene right now in America. God can intervene, but is not going to happen unless there is a lot of God’s people praying and interceding and people start repenting on their sin.

George Washington’s Prayer for the United States of America.

Almighty God; We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection; that Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large.
And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A Prayer for America.

Father, we beg Your blessing for the Right to Life, the Unborn, the weak, the sick and the old; all who are finding themselves being targets of the vicious culture of death; that our Lord Jesus bless and protect all who stand up for the Christian dignity of persons. That God enlighten those who are traveling down death’s highway by their involvement, in any way, with either the contemporary death culture, selfism, relativism, or any of the new age errors of our times, that God envelop our culture with His Divine protection and help us both individually and as a nation to true enlightenment, conversion and repentance of our selves and our culture. Help us to turn from our national sin of abortion, and return to, and once again become a Christian nation, on the narrow road, that is, the path to becoming a nation and culture, under God. Amen.

Prayer to the Holy Spirit.

Come Holy Spirit, enlighten my heart, to see the things which are of God. Come Holy Spirit, into my mind, that I may know the things that are of God; Come Holy Spirit, into my soul, that I belong only to God. Sanctify all that I think, say and do, that all will be for the glory of God.

Novena for Election Day.

Prayer to Mary, the Immaculate Conception, Patroness of the United States published by the Knights of Columbus to be recited for nine consecutive days of prayer—and will run from October to the eve of the election.
Most Holy Trinity: Our Father in Heaven, who chose Mary as the fairest of your daughters; Holy Spirit, who chose Mary as your Spouse; God the Son, who chose Mary as your Mother, in union with Mary we adore your majesty and acknowledge your supreme, eternal dominion and authority.
Most Holy Trinity, we put the United States of America into the hands of Mary Immaculate in order that she may present the country to you. Through her we wish to thank you for the great resources of this land and for the freedom which has been its heritage.
Through the intercession of Mary, have mercy on the Catholic Church in America. Grant us peace. Have mercy on our president and on all the officers of our government. Grant us a fruitful economy, born of justice and charity. Have mercy on capital and industry and labor. Protect the family life of the nation. Guard the precious gift of many religious vocations. Through the intercession of our Mother, have mercy on the sick, the tempted, sinners – on all who are in need.
Mary, Immaculate Virgin, our Mother, Patroness of our land, we praise you and honor you and give ourselves to you. Protect us from every harm. Pray for us,that acting always according to your will and the will of your divine Son, we may live and die pleasing to God. Amen.
