Intercessory Prayer


God of our Fathers who gave you respect

Calling on you to bless our nation

We come in urgent plea


As a nation we have lost respect for you

Anything goes and any belief is accepted

Our government has taken God from our schools

Attempting to do the same in the military


Playing You down as much as possible 

Your Word has been set aside

Wealth and pleasure and power are now national goals


We are paying a very dear price for our godlessness

Especially see it in the national elections this year

in the top candidates for president


Oh God, forgive us our political lethargy

Our lack of concern for the "soul" of America

Bring us to our knees in repentance and confession


And have mercy on us  dear Lord, have mercy on us!

In Christ's name, Amen


Intercessory Prayer (c) 2016     Quentin Clingerman
