Prayer for the Awakening in America

By August 24, 2017Articles, Prayer


More than once in our nation’s history we have seen the move of the Holy Spirit sweep across the land. The first Great Awakening produced the Revolution that won America’s independence. We believe that the Awakening unto God that has begun will free our nation from the tyranny of sin and godlessness. Add your faith to ours and pray these prayers with us:


Foundation Scriptures: Ephesians 1:18, Isaiah 42:16, Matthew 9:37-38

In the Name of Jesus, Father, we lift to You all of America. We pray for an Awakening in each life. We pray that the eyes of their understanding be enlightened to know You and the hope to which You have called them. We pray that the light of the Gospel shines brightly in their lives, that they will not turn away from it. Like the early morning sun shining through a window, Lord, awaken them to Your mercies! Stir them! Shake them! We pray they will have eyes to see and ears to hear. Send laborers across their path; people they will hear and that are anointed to speak into their lives. Let there be such a move of Your Spirit across this nation that even the most stubborn and hardest of hearts will melt in the presence of Your love. Awaken them to the reality of Your coming, Lord Jesus! Use me now Lord as I pray in the Spirit for an Awakening unto You:

In all those in authority,
In families,
In the young people of our nation,
In our government,
In our military,
In our schools.

We believe we receive! In Jesus’ Name!

Father, in the name of Jesus, and according to your Word, we pray for those in authority in our nation. We lift up President Donald Trump, his family, his staff and cabinet members. Let Your Word cling to them and let them not depart from your plan. Strengthen them with mighty power by your Spirit to stand against wickedness, lies and deception. Guide President Trump’s decisions; let Your light shine upon his path and show him the path of reversal for every evil way. Continually surround him with godly men and women who impart wise counsel to him. Cause the way of the wicked to be set to confusion and come to nothing. Deliver us from the traps and snares the enemy has laid for us, and let the wicked be caught in their own devises and be brought to shame.

We take authority over the plots and plans of the enemy against this nation. Let prideful and lying lips be silenced in Jesus’ name. Slanderers will not be established in America. We pray for our Congress, our Supreme Court, our Military leaders and our intelligence agencies. Let the wisdom that is from above reign in this nation and be constantly speaking to our leaders. We exercise the authority you have given us to tread down all the power of the enemy. We cast down and demolish imaginations and arguments that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God, and we bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. We bind spirits of strife and division, civil wars and tumults, spirits of hostility, lawlessness and blasphemy, and fires from hell that have burned in our cities.

We speak grace and peace over America. We pray and believe for the voice of truth, salvation, revival and restoration to be proclaimed and heard across our land. Grant unto your servants everywhere that with all boldness we may speak your Word. We pray for a mighty outpouring of your Spirit with signs, wonders and miracles. We expect the wisdom of this world that is earthly, sensual and devilish to depart and vanish until Your mighty work in America becomes a beacon of hope for all people everywhere. We expect the voice of rejoicing to be heard in our nation for your goodness, mercy and prosperity, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
